    Does changing the drive shaft void the factory warranty?

    Will the factory replace your car if the stock drive shaft comes thru the floor
    I have less than 1,400 miles on my car twisted the drive shaft got it replaced from the dealer,
    I will not put the stock one back in. I bought Drive shaft shop aluminum shaft best investment for the car and my safety.

    I believe I will get the carbon fiber from DSS and see if the dealer will install it for safety reasons.

    Anything is better than stock two piece POS. Buy the aluminum one no need for the carbon fiber. The money you save can go somewhere else .

    If you get a one piece drive shaft, do not install yourself unless your friends are there, job just sucks

    Thanks for the advice, I'm going to ask the dealer to do it before I buy. If they won't, I'll have the rod shop do it... I've got DRs, and concerned with really using them...

    I installed the DSS aluminum shaft, didn't think it was too bad of a job. Took less than an hour.
