The Ultimate In Early Mustang Front Suspension
If you’re looking for the ultimate front suspension for your early Mustang, this is it. By completely redesigning the front suspension from the ground up, we’ve been able to extract modern-day performance and ride quality while accommodating larger power plants like the 2011+ Coyote (or even a NASCAR engine if that’s your thing).
This is the same suspension you’ll find under the front of Mike Maier’s Ol’ Blue, the shop’s development car and winner of everything from Optima to Goodguys. Designed for the track yet comfortable on the street, this suspension has been refined and improved to create a no-compromise option for those who want only the best.
Make no mistake, the install is involved, but the improved performance is worth it. We start by removing the original shock towers and replacing them with our MOD 2 designs built to create maximum space in the engine bay while maintaining the strength Ford designers originally intended. Constructed out of thicker gauge metal than similar kits and always TIG welded, these are designed to keep the shock mounted much higher (and closer to the original location) to enhance overall shock travel, resulting in better suspension geometry and performance.
We then replace the lower control arm mount with a new design that locates it in the most effective position and helps to tie the rest of the kit together. As fans of adjustability, we installed our keyed mounting points, offering you the ability to raise or lower the mount for the lower control arm resulting in improved alignment specs. Keeping the longest control arms possible combined with vertical control arm mounting adjustability ensures that you will have the best combination possible. Of course we built in our preferred JRi Racing shocks (with your choice of adjustability and Hyperco springs.
Tying the shock towers and lower control arm mounts together you’ll find a tubular crossmember designed to clear a front sump Coyote oil pan like those from Canton or Moroso.
As for steering, the kit is designed to use your stock steering box along with our MOD centerlink. So why not go with a typical rack-and-pinion type setup so common these days? It all has to do with steering geometry, or the math behind why your car feels twitchy and unpredictable instead of solid and confidence inspiring. Unfortunately, feel often takes a backseat to packaging constraints (and consumers who say “I want that” without really being sure why). What everyone seems to be missing is that most rack and pinion systems actually make the original steering geometry worse. If you wish to upgrade to power steering, we can make that happen by adding on our power steering kit. If you’re looking to drop a Coyote in, we offer a Coyote specific pump and reservoir that’s works extremely well with this setup.
