Hey Guys,

Well it has been a long few months since I sent my driveshaft off to DSS. Has anyone else had issues with the 2015 and the DSS gen that was one CV? The issue was the bolts worked themselves loose and they were loctite and torqued but still managed to come loose.

I caught the vibrations and what not before it came loose. Sent it off and DSS has had it since January and keep giving me there balancer is broke etc.

Then I see this notice on there website which was not there before.

* * PLEASE NOTE: THIS DRIVESHAFT MUST BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SUBFRAME LOCKOUT BUSHING REPLACEMENT KIT

The rear differential/subframe on the 2015+ Dodge Charger and Challenger is prone to excessive movement during launch that can cause irreparable damage to the 1-piece driveshaft, and also possible damage to the underside of the vehicle and/or other components. Failures related to excessive subframe movement may not be covered under warranty.
At this point I am getting frustrated with DSS because of them delaying and what not but I am thinking there is a major problem and they just can't fix it..

Any thoughts you guys have on this?

I bought mine last year, its been revised since the first driveshaft they built for the hellcat, I didn't use Loctite and haven't had any issues. Its been over 5k miles and 20 1/4 mile passes. The driveshaft did take 9 weeks to build and ship though.

If they couldn't fix it they would have replaced it.

The Driveshaft Shop is an excellent choice.
I have a DSS Driveshaft and 1400 halfshafts installed on my Hellcat.
I do know for any mods that might feel the vibs from racing down the track you have to check all parts to ensure your safety !
Do you have other problems?
