Camaro and Firebird Driveshafts 

V6 Camaro and Firebird F-4 Driveshaft Applications

 

 

worn out OE v6 Camaro DriveshaftShown to the right is one of GM's "better Ideas".  This is a terrible design.  We offer new 1 piece driveshaft in steel and aluminum.  This eliminates the carrier bearing and enclosed 6 ball CV assembly.  This driveshaft is over $900 from the dealer.  The OE driveshaft is very heavy and overly complicated.

We have sold over 1000 Performer Steel and Aluminum driveshafts with ZERO complaints. 

 $345 and Free Shipping.
Performer Series Steel Replacement  Driveshaft with Spicer XL U-Joints and new Transmission yoke.    Driveshaft tube is 2.75" x.065.  Weight is 14.  Over 50% less weight. 

Camaro Aluminum driveshaft$440  Free Shipping. Performer Aluminum Driveshaft with Spicer XL U-Joints and new Transmission Yoke.  Driveshaft tube is 3.0" x.125 6061 T6 Hi-Strength Aluminum.  Weight is over 60% less.  The reduced weight can certainly give a performance advantage.

SPICER XL Premium U-Joints INCLUDED!

We offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not extremely satisfied.  We will even send a prepaid UPS return shipping label to send the new driveshaft back.

Spicer XL U-Joints.  The Best!

We recommend the Spicer XL Universal Joint.  All Camaro pricing will include the Spicer XL.  This is the best U-Joint we are aware of.  It is maintenance free and will never sling grease all over the bottom of your nice car.  Typical life cycle is over 100,000 miles and you never have to grease them.  we have never seen one that has broken in Hi-Performance applications.  Simply the best!  All for a few dollars more that the cheap greaseable U-Joints most shops use.  Some shops (and auto parts stores) are using really cheap Chinese U-Joints.  If you are buying U-Joints at a parts store - check and see if made in China.

 

V-8 Camaro - All Years

We offer stock type OE replacement driveshafts or Hi-Performance replacement or upgrade driveshafts for all year models of Camaro and Firebirds.  We carry all types of Transmission yokes and we can easily build a driveshaft to fit your application perfectly.  Due to wide range of possible Transmissions and Differential changes/upgrades we can only provide general pricing.  Please call or email your specific set up and we will provide recommendations and exact pricing for you.

4 transmission  driveshaft yokeTransmission Yokes are Not included in the pricing below.

We carry over 80 different transmission yokes.  Pricing varies so we price your application for exactly what you need.  Be aware of cheap Chinese yokes with "CAM" stamped in them.  The CAM must stand for cheap ass material because that is exactly what these part are. 

 

Shown below is a typical Performer Series in an un-welded, un-balanced and unpainted form.  We custom build to length.  Other than the V6 products listed above we build all Camaro and Firebirds as a custom driveshaft.  Typical pricing for 3.0 x.083 driveshaft with Spicer XL U-joints is $255 to $275 + Transmission yoke.  The 3.5" inch driveshafts are a little more.

Aluminum Driveshafts

Performer Aluminum Driveshafts are becoming quite popular.  They offer nice weight reduction benefits while retaining a high level of strength.  Note:  Aluminum Driveshafts are not stronger than steel, as some magazine articles are indicating.  Actually this same article used the term transmission "yolk" which is a component of an egg.  Not a driveshaft part.  We usually suggest going 1 size up on diameter from a steel shaft if the car is fairly high horsepower.  A 3.0" steel shaft would go to a 3.5" aluminum.  In most cases there is no fitment issue with the larger tube.  From the centerline of the driveshaft a 3.5" is only 1/4 inch bigger than a 3.0" and there is usually no clearance issue with a 1/4 inch increase.

Pricing on average for 3.0" and 3.5" Performer Aluminum Driveshafts are in the $295 to $355 range (not including trans yoke) but includes the Spicer XL U-Joints.

 

We will want to verify length for a very precise fit. 

Please use M1-1 in the Measure Sheet section.

Please call or email with any questions.  We are happy to assist and want to you to be 110% Pleased with your new Driveshaft, our Quality of Workmanship and Customer Service.
