Mustang IRS Components 1999-2017
As you know, the Ford Mustang is not built like most vehicles. If you want the biggest difference that sets the pony car apart from the pack, look no further than the rear suspension. Because the Mustang is a rear wheel drive car, the power from the engine is sent to the rear axle, and in turn, your rear wheels put all of that horsepower and torque to the pavement!
No rear wheel drive system would be functional without a proper rear suspension, and since the turn of the century, the Mustang IRS has been prevalent in pony cars. In a stark performance contrast to the old solid rear axle setup, the Mustang independent rear suspension allows the tires to move independently from one another, which offers significant improvements in both cornering and overall handling.
The Ford Mustang IRS system allows for one tire to remain in constant contact with the road's surface, which is especially prevalent on uneven driving surfaces. While a solid rear axle might lose contact with the surface, the IRS allows the vehicle to maintain traction, which allows tires to wear more evenly and not put too much stress on one or the other.
If you are hoping to improve your pony car's IRS setup, you are free to invest in new Mustang independent rear suspension components. Ford Mustang IRS parts consist of bearings, races, and seals, as well as all of the hardware components that enable your rear axle to stand the test of time. The right aftermarket Mustang IRS upgrades can allow you to enjoy those performance driving events like never before while giving you peace of mind knowing that the rear axle will have a solid foundation for many years to come!
One of the biggest downsides to a Mustang rear suspension setup on many SN95 or S197 ponies is that the shaft is rather delicate and it cannot hold as much power as an SRA setup can in some cases. Similarly, the tendency for wheel hop and other violent subframe movements while the vehicle is accelerating in a straight line is a major gripe in which S550 owners had about the redesigned IRS for 2015.
With new Mustang IRS components, however, you will not have to worry whether or not the rear axle can handle all of the power that you are hoping to put down. Additionally, if you have any future suspension upgrades in mind, your trusty new Ford Mustang IRS components will ensure that the rear axle can adapt to all of that newfound power.
