Description

This Mustang leaf spring kit is designed to control wheel hop during braking as well as acceleration. The springs are arched to set a 64-6 with a 1″ lowering block to roughly an 8″ ride height from the pinch weld under the door. 67 and up can achieve the same height without lowering blocks. These springs have been designed by the crew at Mike Maier Inc and are manufactured in the U.S.. Mike Maier has been designing leaf springs for twenty years and these are the best ones yet!

  • This Mustang Leaf Spring Kit is a Maier Original Design (MOD). Developed exclusively for your Mustang by Mike Maier.

Mike Maier Inc understands that wheel hop is created by multiple components in the rear suspension.

  1. Poor leaf spring design
    • Poor leaf spring design allow the front half of the leaf to deform/deflect causing axle wrap up which snaps back and induces wheel hop.
  2. Lack of dampening in your shocks
    • Inexpensive/poorly designed shocks usually do not have enough control to keep the axle housing firmly planted to the ground.
  3. Soft front leaf spring bushings.
    • Soft front leaf spring bushing allow the leaf spring to travel fore and aft allowing the rear axle to misalign under hard acceleration

 

Mike Maier Inc urethane bushings for the front eyelets of your leaf springs are designed to help control wheel hop in your early model Mustang.  Wheel hop is caused by 3 major components of your rear suspension.

 

Mike Maier Inc chooses to use a stock rubber shackle kit in the pursuit of suspension compliance.  When using a hard bushing shackle kit (Delrin, Aluminum, etc) bind is induced in the suspension system during roll/corning which artificially increases spring rate and induces poor ride quality.  In many years of R&D Mike Maier ended up where he started, with a factory shackle kit.  Great for the daily driver or the hardcore track nut with a panhard rod kit.  Sometimes you just need to keep things simple.

    Not many upgrades have made the difference that these springs made to my 1970 Mach1. I had upgraded springs in the car but it still felt like a dump truck out back. After I installed (super easy) these springs the ride and rear end feel is much more compliant, smooth and predictable. Yes these are expensive compared to other springs out there but so worth the extra money and the customer service at MMI is off the charts. Mike actually picks up the phone! You just don’t get this type of service anymore.

    I’m not sure where to start, I bought my 65 mustang in 1994 and it was my daily driver through college. During that time I rebuild the suspension but was never really happy with the set up. The car bounced, flexed through turns, had gnarly wheel hop, and just never felt right. Over the years I researched just about everything on the market and was convinced I wasn’t going to go with leafs. That is, until I met Mike and learned about his products. Mike took the time to explain how his leaf springs worked, and the history behind his leaf springs. These leafs springs have years of R&D and track time. So I trusted Mike and threw a pair of his leaf springs on along with his shackles, bushings and Bilstein shocks. During installation I noticed the difference between my last aftermarket front eyelet bushing and Mikes. Wow, what a difference, super tight fit! The install went fast, now time to test it out.
    I instantly noticed how the car didn’t bounce all over the road, and the sloppy roll from the rear of the car was gone!! I also noticed the vibration during acceleration was gone, meaning my pinion angle was good and held strong! During acceleration the power feels like it goes to the ground and the car wants to go straight. Finally, the wheel hop was gone. Yes, you read that right, NO MORE WHEEL HOP!!! 25 years of wheel hop and it’s gone with the first upgraded part from Mikemaierinc.com.

    I highly recommend these leaf springs, and shocks. Five stars all the way. I have a lot more work to do on this car and I can guarantee you my suspension will be from Mikemaierinc.com. Thank you Mike and team!!!
