Best front driveshaft?

Hello all,

Been a while since I last posted. Hope y'all are well. I'm looking for the ford part number for a new front driveshaft. Maybe some suggestions on what is the best front driveshaft for my vehicle?

Vehicle is 2005 f-350 DRW 4wd. Thanks in advance!

You planning on racing ? If not then the one the truck
was born with should be more that up to the job.
Now if you not going to the races and truck pulls the
only other reason I could see would be if you went
with a very tall lift. Look how long Anthony and Julie
went with what they were pulling year round from snow
and ice to blistering heat.

I replaced mine with a Woods out of Oregon.My old one kept making a noise at 35 in 4-wheel drive. Your welcome to the old one,but freight would be a killer.It has new u-joints in it.Thinking it was out of balance. Faster to replace than repair.

Thanks for the prompt responses. No I don't intend on racing but I was thinking of something longer lasting. Maybe a driveshaft built from thicker material?

Thanks.

Heaver shaft = more weight and faster ware of other components.

PM Anthony ans ask him how many miles they got out of the
one that is in the truck that has so many miles.

Ask him how long he got out of a front driveshaft that doesn't spin unless you are locked into 4wd? That is pointless

thanks man. would love to use your front driveshaft, but if i'm not mistaken, they changed the front driveshaft when MY 2005 rolled around. i could be wrong on this but i think thats what i saw when i glanced at an article.

i meant longer lasting than what it is right now. if this lasted 10 years, i want my next piece to be pretty much tougher than the oem in my opinion. i would like to see a company slap a lifetime warranty on said part and stand behind it. tat sort of stuff.

Take in to that account the fact that he spent a lot of winter drive
time towing in 4WD.

Just use the Advance Auto or O'Reilys front driveshaft or have a local rebuilder take care of it.
