    From indications, yes. The vibe problem is fixed on the 2018-up cars. There is not a single report that I can find that indicates the same type of tolerance mismatch. If someone here knows of one I’m sure they’lll post.

    Good Q on the Evap. I was wondering the same thing. I really like my A10, but I expect a certain amount of clunkiness.

    From what I have read the engine tick in the newer Coyote engines has got Ford's attention right now along with the GT350 oil consumption issues. Its really a shame to read about these issues because I love the look of the Mustang but after my experiences I am scared to buy another right now

    The tick is interesting. But it doesn't appear to be universal. The vibration problem was far more pervasive than the tick. Many people do not notice the vibration. Everyone will notice a tick. if I wanted something that is thoroughly snug in almost all respects, I would have gotten a Camry. But my 2019 A10 is just so damn fun!

    It is really curious that Kia is the #1 ranked brand in quality now...

    Ford is actually way up there in many rankings...I think I saw it at #4 somewhere. In other studies, a bit lowe, but ahead of some other brands that I was surprised by.

    weird.

    Anyone knows the part number of the "redesigned" ds?

    I also wonder if the one that comes on the A10 can be installed on the A06?

    Good question. I would think the answer is "yes", but this may not be accurate. Can anyone please help him out?

    Please do not replace the driveshaft by itself. You should also replace the pinion flange with the updated 2018-up version. Otherwise, you are asking for trouble...if experience has taught us anything it's that driveshafts and flanges are matched sets. The front driveshaft is not a concern and should not need replacement.

    Whether you need the updated hanger bearing and crossmember for the 2018-up is another story. You can try replacing DS and flange and please do report back to us.

    That is unfortunate, if true. Not sure where to go after this in your research, unless its to contact a reputable performance shop that would know the ins and outs. Ford Racing might be helpful also...might be.

    Do a search for JohnVallo in the Drivetrain Forum. Seems like a nice fellow and has a ton of Mustang drivetrain knowledge.

    Help!
    Cardan shaft model 2015-2017 and model 2018-2019.
    Can the new 2018 be fitted to a 2015 car ???
    Are the dimensions the same? Are the mounting points the same?
    I would like to replace it with the 2018 differential driver!
    Does anyone have a personal experience ???
    Thanks for the info...

    SSM 46767 - 2015-2017 Mustang – 3.7L/5.0L – 6R80 - Clunk/Ping Noise When Shifting From ParkTo Reverse And/Or Park To Drive Engagement
    Some 2015-2017 Mustang vehicles equipped with 3.7L and 5.0L built on or before 1-Apr-2017 equipped with a 6R80 transmission may exhibit a clunk or ping noise from the driveshaft when shifting from reverse to drive or drive to reverse. A revised driveshaft which has enhanced NVH characteristics has been released. For claiming, use causal part 4K145 and applicable labor operations in section 04 of the service labor time standards (SLTS) manual.

    APPLICABLE VEHICLES
    2015 - 2017 CAR: ZG S550N MUSTANG
    2015 - 2017 CAR: ZG S550N MUSTANG


    So what part number is it?? There's only 1 part number for the ds of 15-17

    Update: Mine has had some minor vibration over time, but recently it seems to have gone away. Where it used to vibrate a little 55-60 mph, it's now gone and I've not done a thing. This happen to anyone else?

    Well I have a 19 and it has developed a slight vibration at about65-70 Mph, now I also have a a whomp whomp at 20mph. Im bring it in for service and its annoying but so far no other issues. The vibration is a very very low frequency,

    That sounds like a tire/wheel issue.

    A one piece driveshaft will not fix the issue. In some cases it made the issue worse for people.

    The only time a one piece MAY work, and I certainly have not tried this, is going carbon fiber. It's such a light/strong shaft with such a high critical speed, it usually smooths out any driveline.

    That sounds like a bent wheel or shifted belt or something. I certainly have no 20mph whomp whomps

    Hey Guys.. Our 2017 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible had this issue from the first day, now with 5000 miles Ford approved the buy back, hopefully the replacement 2019 will not have this issue.
