CorteX short-long arm (SLA) suspension systems (also known as a double wishbone suspension) are a no-compromise solution to anyone that wants the ultimate handling solution for their vehicle. There really is no substitute for a properly designed SLA suspension. Compared to a front struts suspension an SLA has superior camber gain, roll center stability and in most cases additional tire clearance. Here are some key benefits to a properly designed SLA suspension:

 

 

  • Lower lap time by 2-4 seconds depend on the length and features of the track on a back to back test with the same tires!
  • More tire rubber on ground at any given situation.
  • Reduced entry and mid-corner understeer without loss of rear end grip!
  • Reduced static camber requirement
  • Roll center much more stable both vertically and laterally making handling more consistent and predictable
  • Much less sensitive to changes in ride height. For example, lowering the chassis one inch only causes the roll center to drop one inch.
  • High-quality damper significantly less expensive –  e.g. double eyelet coilover shocks are nearly half the cost of equivalent struts which nearly pays for the conversion to SLA.
  • Inherently stronger design since components are in tension and compression instead of bending
  • Experts agrees:  Nearly every supercar uses this suspension type for a reason

    I don’t write many reviews, and everyone knows Cortex has great race parts, but this SLA is something else. We do endurance racing and one of our drivers has 2 Rolex 24hr wins. His first time in the car with this SLA was at Road Atlanta. He was amazed how well the car handled. He never thought that an American muscle car can handle that good. Our times were 4 sec faster than before at same track with same tires across every driver. The car was so easy to drive that it gave everyone confidence to go faster. Our Boss 302R was faster in the rain than Ferrari 458 Challenge driven by professional drivers. No other pice of bolt on equipment made as much difference as this SLA. It transformed our Mustang. Highly recommended.
