Default One Piece Drive Shaft for 05-07 GT 5-Sp

Has anyone heard of a Sutton one-piece drive shaft? Can it competewith Coastline and others on performance and durability? Price is good

That price is right in line with the denny's before the price on those went up. But what is the diameter. It looks to be the same as stock.

Denny's.. As in Denny's Driveshaft on Military Rd in Kenmore/Buffalo? If they do good work, they'relike 30 minsfrom me, I could probably get one cheep.... What reasons/advantages are there for switching to a 1 piece driveshaft?

That would be the one. I am sure they are quite busy right now because our group buy ended about a month ago and they are still fulfilling that. But you can drive on down there and check it out for yourself!

Cool, but what advantages does a 1-piece driveshaft give you, or is it only something that's required after you start to produce horsepower up in the "stupid" range??

Advantages of the 1pc Driveshaft is to drop about 20+ lbs of useless weight, and in doing so reducing the driveline loss which nets you a decent gain in performance. My biggest, and many others biggest concern is the "Clunking" of the stock 2pc Driveshaft.

Is that what the clunking is? I thought it might be the rear end (haven't driven a RWD car is quite some time)...

Thanks for the info..

How much was the group buy for?

Yeah the clunking is my main reason for the switch also...added HP is a nice bonus. Group buy price was 540. They are like 620 nowI think.

Like I mentioned before, Denny's is about 30 mins from where I live, and like 10 mins from my office. I'll call them on Monday and see what they'll sell direct for. I'm betting it's elss than going through a 3rd party site like the one mentioned above.. I could even take advantage of their free lifetime labor. Cool!!
