The CorteX Xtreme-Grip Vintage Rear Suspension System 64-70 Mustang and Cougar is a complete redesign of the original suspension system and utilizes modern geometry that is suited for today’s performance tires.  Particular consideration was given to packaging, weight, and suspension geometry for the vintage mustang platform.  The leaf springs suspension was discarded in favor of a watts link, torque arm, and coilover package which does everything better than the original suspension.  When driving the car you can feel the reduction of unsprung weight and friction.  Rear grip is improved exponentially and power is put down effortlessly both in a straight line and coming off of corners.  The torque arm serves double duty and also virtually eliminates noise dive under braking.  Instead the entire chassis squats as the deceleration loads push the entire car into the pavement at its center of gravity. If you’ve never driving a car with well designed watts link/torque arm combination be prepared for a revelation.  You won’t be going back to anything else!

Vintage mustang have lightweight flimsy unibody chassis that can compromise handling.  The CorteX Xtreme-Grip Vintage Suspension System is design to install with minimal permanent modifications to your pony.   Other system require the car to be complete cut up for installation and actually make the vehicle even flimsier than it was from the factory while adding additional weight in the process.  To install our vintage rear system the only permanent modifications required are the installation of our weld-in subframe connectors and a simple modification to the rear trunk sheet metal just ahead of the gas tank to gain adequate for the watts link and coil overs.  All modification can be reversed at a later time if desired.

 

We engineered our suspension to increase chassis strength and stiffness for superior response.  The geometry optimizes the roll center height, lateral roll center migration, and minimizes bumpsteer all the while allowing the build to adjust ride height as much as 2.5 inches to achieve the optimal stance both at the track and on the street.

CorteX recommend that the Xtreme-Grip Vintage Rear Suspension System be installed concurrently with the Xtreme-Grip Vintage Front Suspension System.
