Cortex Racing Xtreme-Grip Torque Arm System 2005-2014 Mustang S197
Installation in the 2005-2014 Mustangs is a bolt-in affair. Cortex Racing's unique mounting design also provides ample drive shaft clearance for most 1-piece driveshaft. The torque arm system allow you to eliminate the factory upper 3rd link on your existing suspension which can be a significant source of noise and vibration when aftermarket upper links are installed. Get the best of both worlds, and install this effective, quiet, and easy to install product. You will not be disappointed!
The Xtreme-Grip torque arm is a rear suspension component that delivers unsurpassed corner exit and straight-line rear grip without sacrificing cornering ability. You can also expect a significant decrease in front end dive under braking since the rear axle rotational loads are now applied much closer the center of gravity. These improvements are accomplished by changing the anti-squat and anti-lift geometry of the rear suspension. When a mustang is lowered from the factory ride height the rear suspension geometry is compromised reducing rear grip under acceleration. Relocating the lower control arms pivots on the axle is a step in the right direction, however more improvement is possible. Cortex Racing's torque arm system allows significantly more anti-squat to be added to your mustang than with a 3 or 4 link design while still having correct rear axle roll steer. With our torque arm the rear tires are loaded more evenly than a 3-link design further maximizing traction. The more power your vehicle has the more benefit you will gain by installing our torque arm system.
Note: Requires 8.8 rearend. If you are not buying the Xtreme-Grip watts link system along with the torque arm you will also need to purchase a Super Low Profile TA Performance rear end differential cover in order to install the torque arm.
