PST makes some REALLY nice shafts. Their Carbon Fiber is the best you can get but, they are not cheap.($600) They also make some billet Aluminum ones ($400) that are excellent as well. Don't get one of the Ford Motorsports D/S, I had one and they SUCK!!!!!! (the FMS prices aren't the only thing about them that is cheap) If you are going to get a D/S then spend the extra and get a quality one to start with. You can get PST's number out of the back of MM&FF or 5.0. Hope that helps.

I'm really happy with my FRPP driveshaft. If did everything that I wanted it do do -- eliminate the drivetrain vibration after installing 4.10's and saving a few pounds. $600 for carbon fiber is crazy.

I agree that they are expenisive but, ask anyone who has bought one and I think you will see that it was money well spent!

I have a slight vibration is this caused from the FMS drive shaft?
Thanks

AndyB, it is a VERY good possibility. The FMS driveshafts are not very good quality. Some people have good luck out of them but, most still have problems. I had a FMS in my car and I still had a vibration, changed to the PST and the vibration was gone. Hope that helps.
