XTREME-GRIP COMPLETE SUSPENSION – FRONT & REAR, Street 2005-2014 S197 MUSTANG
The Xtreme-Grip complete suspension system address all the major shortcomings of the S197 platform. CorteX updates the dampers and springs, adds a watts link to the rear, updates the rear suspension geometry to correct the geometry for lowered right height and adds front alignment capability. Overall what you get is a chassis with a lot more mechanical grip that is better balanced for aggressive driving both on and off the track.

We do not recommend using other manufacturer’s K-members or Front Lower Control Arms with the Xtreme-Grip S197 Mustang Suspension Systems. Although they may save weight, the light-duty K-member and LCAs have more deflection and are of a weaker design than the OEM Ford units. Most of the weight can be saved by changing to aftermarket motor mounts and upgrading to the Boss 302S front lower control arms.
