 OE - Original Equipment type Aluminum Driveshafts

 If your car or truck was originally equipped with an Aluminum driveshaft we can supply a replacement in most cases.  If your vehicle was originally equipped with a 1 pc steel driveshaft we can usually offer an upgrade to an Aluminum Driveshaft. 

Aluminum provides benefits of less rotating weight (may slightly improve miles per gallon) and the aluminum driveshaft will not rust or corrode for those in severe climate or salted road conditions.  All of Driveshaft Specialist Aluminum Driveshafts are fabricated in our San Antonio Texas location.  We make sure each and every driveshaft is made to the highest quality standards. 

We prefer the Spicer XL series U-Joint.Spicer XL U-Joints  The Spicer XL U-Joint is maintenance free and has a typical lifespan of over 100,000 miles.  Best U-Joint available -anywhere!  Pricing does not include the Transmission Yoke or flat type Flanges at the differential on some vehicles.  Please call for an exact price quote for your specific model.  We price every driveshaft individually so you pay for exactly  the driveshaft type you need.  Call toll free 1.866.455.6622.
