DSS One-Piece driveshaft for the Hellcat Challenger adds strength and reduces weight over the factory unit. This Aluminum driveshaft handles up to 1000HP for modified or heavy duty use applications. DSS uses special dampening to reduce noise and vibration. Replaces the stock 2pc unit for better drivetrain feel and strength.

In order to reduce or eliminate this noise, we have been testing a new internally dampened version of the 2015+ Dodge Charger/Challenger 1-piece driveshafts. The verdict on most people trying the dampened shaft is that it does help. Being that the noise is actually being caused by the vehicle's differential and not the driveshaft itself, it is hard to take it away completely unless the differential itself is rebuilt correctly.
This single shaft is the same design that we have been using in most modern muscle cars for the last 2 years and is a proven and trouble free shaft for the Challenger, and now the Hellcat too. This shaft will replace the stock 2 piece shaft and eliminate the disconnected feeling you get from the stock shaft with its Giubo (rubber drive) and soft hanger bearing rubber. The stock shaft has to have the Guibos twist, then the hanger bearing moves up and only after all this happens the car will start to move. With this new 4" aluminum driveshaft that uses a 1350 joint on one end and a Custom CV on the other will make the car feel more connected or more athletic. The response from the gas pedal will be more responsive and will increase 60ft times at the track. This shaft will require a small spacer installed under the front mount of the diff (simple as removing the bolt and slipping it in) to ensure clearance on the rear section of the shaft. This is balanced like all shafts on our 9500rpm balancer so you know it's done to the best standards available today.
***Some of the 2015+ Dodge Charger and Challenger models are prone to an inherent drivetrain noise that is being caused by the stock differential. The noise is present with the factory driveshaft but can be made more noticeable with the installation of a 1-piece driveshaft. Not all of these cars have this issue, but we are offering an option that may help for the ones that do.
