Some driveshafts with cheaper prices have conversion u-joints that step from one u-joint size to another or greaseable u-joints. Conversion and greaseable u-joints are not as strong as the cold forged solid cross u-joints that we use and have more play. Many of the cheaper shafts have cast weld yokes at each end while ours are USA made forged weld yokes. In fact, every part of our driveshaft from end to end is USA made premium product – assembled, welded and balanced by our team here in Indiana. You can’t compare the quality, durability and life you will get from our driveshaft to other lower cost driveshafts out there.\u003c\/p\u003e\n \u003chr\u003e\n \u003cp\u003e\u003cimg alt=\"\" src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2012\/8549\/files\/Screen_Shot_2024-04-11_at_1.38.19_PM.png?v=1712858130\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c!-- ↑ TAB Section ↑ --\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis drive shaft includes the slip yoke and is balanced and ready to install.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003cb\u003eModified Vehicles:\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThis driveshaft is designed to fit stock vehicle applications, double check your driveshaft length if your truck is lifted, leveled or modified.

Use this driveshaft to upgrade your 3.5 inch steel driveshaft into a heavy duty 5 inch aluminum piece. The OEM driveshafts are notorious for driveshaft vibrations and component failures. Our Aluminum driveshaft upgrade offers a stronger and more reliable driveshaft.

This driveshaft is heavy duty from end to end. We use the Spicer cold forged sealed u-joint - the best and strongest 1410 u-joint available. The Aluminum tubing is 5" OD Arconic premium aluminum seamless material that is 1/8" thick -- rated for over 7,000 ft/lbs of torque! It will handle even the heaviest towing loads. We offer a lifetime warranty on our welds and a 1 year unlimited mile warranty on all parts.

The driveshaft comes fully assembled with the transfer case slip yoke, balanced and ready to bolt in. Installation is as simple as sliding in the transfer case yoke and bolting up the straps. If you need new straps for the rear end yoke, select that option below. Be sure to check for clearance issues with the old carrier bearing mounting bracket. Many Duramax trucks require you to remove the carrier bearing bracket so that the new larger driveshaft does not rub on the carrier bracket.

You won't be disappointed with your 5 inch aluminum driveshaft. Time and again customers are impressed at how well made the driveshaft is. - no matter if is a daily driver, over the road towing rig or pulling truck, aluminum is the way to go.

This aluminum upgrade driveshaft is great for trucks that do tow heavy trailers or for those who want the best in driveshaft strength. Don't need the upgrade? Then consider our OEM replacement driveshaft: Chevy 2500 or GMC 2500.

Quality Aluminum Tubing vs. Thin Wall Swedged Tubing

Action Machine Inc.:
Heavy Duty Tubing
The Others:
Thin Wall Swedged Tubing

The Action Machine driveshaft is a heavy-duty driveshaft made to last. You will find cheaper aluminum driveshafts on the internet but that is what they are – cheaper in price and quality.

AMI aluminum vs Swedged driveshaft

When you see other aluminum driveshafts with tubing that is bigger in the middle and smaller at the ends, that is a thin wall 0.075 inch aluminum which is light duty OEM material. Our 1/8 inch thick heavy duty Arconic brand tube is made with an even wall thickness and extra straight from end to end to run vibration free and for incredible torque performance. Some driveshafts with cheaper prices have conversion u-joints that step from one u-joint size to another or greaseable u-joints. Conversion and greaseable u-joints are not as strong as the cold forged solid cross u-joints that we use and have more play. Many of the cheaper shafts have cast weld yokes at each end while ours are USA made forged weld yokes. In fact, every part of our driveshaft from end to end is USA made premium product – assembled, welded and balanced by our team here in Indiana. You can’t compare the quality, durability and life you will get from our driveshaft to other lower cost driveshafts out there.
