Cadillac CTS-V 1st Gen 4” 1350 Series Aluminum Slip Shaft with solid cross non-greaseable U-Joints and hardware
2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V: Sedan
MUST HAVE A 2ND GEN DIFFERENTIAL, REAR FLANGE WILL NOT MATE UP TO 1st GEN DIFFERENTIAL *NEW PRODUCT/SOLUTION COMING SOON*
We build each 1350 series driveshaft with 3.5” x .125 wall Kaiser KDS4-T8 aluminum tubing*, aluminum yoke shaft and spline sleeve assembly, weld yoke, and flange yokes, all components from Sonnax, 1350 series solid cross non greaseable u-joints from Spicer, and hardware with Loctite. All driveshafts are high speed balanced for performance application.
**Our 1350 series driveshaft DOES NOT require additional adapters. We build each driveshaft with aluminum adapter flanges from Sonnax. Our driveshaft will bolt directly into your existing OEM flanges on your transmission and differential. This eliminates the need for any additional parts and hardware. **
Sonnax tubing from Kaiser is the best foundation for a driveshaft that’s easy to build and balance. It’s the ideal way to increase strength and critical speed, whether you’re replacing thin wall OE aluminum/steel tubing or converting from a steel two-piece to an aluminum one-piece driveshaft.
*The tubing material is KDS4 T8, Drawn Over Mandrel seamless, made by Kaiser in Richmond VA. This differs from the 6061 T6 tubing which was previously the only tube on the aftermarket scene, made by Arconic (previously Alcoa). The KDS4 T8 has the same weldability and most of the same material properties as 6061 T6, however, in our testing, we found it to have about 20% higher tensile strength. It visually looks a little different due to the different processes the two manufacturers have, and Kaiser’s roll straightening / checking on every tube.
