Ridetech 4-Link Bolt-on 1965-1970
- Improves Ride Quality
- Improves Handling
- Minor Welding Required
Ridetech Bolt-on 4-Link for 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mustangs.Replace the outdated OEM leaf spring system with Ridetech's bolt-on 4-link setup. Ridetech's 4-link system will lower your vehicle while improving handling and load capacity. The 4-link simply bolts into your Mustang without any cutting or fabrication. There are just four small tabs to weld to the axle for your upper bars. The entire system can be welded to the car if you prefer. Ride quality will be dramatically improved over stock. With the addition of Ridetech coilovers or air bags, you will experience a crisp controlled ride instead of a wallowing soft ride that the stock suspension gives.
Ridetech's bolt-in 4-link setup typically lowers a Mustang's ride height by approximately two inches. This new stance will give your Mustang a great look while lowering the car and increasing handling aspects. By installing the 4-link, you will lower the vehicle's center of gravity which helps prevent body roll. The largest improvements are handling and cornering performance. The 4-link bars offer more precise positioning of the rear axle to eliminate flexing and increase stability through corners. Standard polyurethane bushings fight deflection while decreasing a harsh ride and road noise.
Ridetech's 4-link is designed to fit a variety of Ridetech shock and spring solutions. Equip your Mustang with either coilovers or air springs. Air springs can give you adjustability on the fly but require more work as an air tank and electronics must be installed as well. A show car will benefit from air springs as you can deflate to approximately five to six inches lower than stock. Ridetech also offers coilovers for a simple installation and great handling. Non-adjustable and adjustable coilovers are available. Adjustable shocks allow you to tune in your preferred shock damping for ride quality or performance. Non-adjustable shocks are tuned for the best ride quality possible.
If you want your classic muscle car to ride and drive like a modern performance car, the bolt-on 4-link system is the perfect solution. Ridetech thoroughly tests all of their components before releasing them to the public. The cars are regularly used in a wide range of performance driving environments along with normal highway time. With multiple suspension parts and setups available, Ridetech has something to offer for the weekend cruiser to road race warrior, and everything in between.
*Coilovers/air springs NOT included.
