Xtreme-Grip™ Watts Link System, 2005-2014 S197 Mustang, Track


SKU: CWL-40-2000

The CorteX Watts Link complete kit replaces the panhard bar in a few simple bolt-on steps.


What makes this ideal for track racing?

The CorteX “Track” watts link system has a spherical bearing at all pivot points to minimize friction and deflection.

Four possible pivot location points of the center pivot.  The pivot point of a watts link is the rotation center of the rear of the vehicle. Moving it up or down relative to the center of gravity of the vehicle allows the roll stiffness of the suspension to change. This enables balancing the front-to-rear grip of the vehicle so that the desired handling can be achieved.

Adding a CorteX Watts Link to your mustang will take your racing to a whole new level.

Say goodbye to the nervousness you feel at the rear of your car near its cornering limits, so you can focus on turning your mustang into a supercar killer.

Why Do You Need It?

A watts linkage locates the rear axle laterally, meaning it prevents relative sideways motion between the axle and body of the car. It is an improvement over a panhard bar because the watts link more closely approximates vertical straight-line motion of the axle assembly allowing the vehicle to behave symmetrically in left and right hand corners.

A watts linkage is a mechanism consisting of two near horizontal links and a center pivot. The center pivot allows the mechanism to work because it compensates for the curved rotation of the horizontal links as they move through their arcs.

Xtreme-Grip Watts Link System Features

  • Spherical joints throughout for superior control

CorteX’s revolutionary differential cover

*Two models of the watts link are available for the 2005+ Mustangs: Track or Street

For street cars that are concerned with NVH please consider the CWL-40-2000S, which uses poly bushings on the chassis ends of the links.

**2013-2014 GT500 Owners please see the optional plumbing kit that includes the fitting and hose needed to reconnect your OEM differential cooler to our watts differential cover.  We have added a threaded port for the temperature sensor for OEM installations.


Pro Tip: A Watts Link is ideally paired with the CorteX Coil-Over Systems and with the optional Adjustable Front anti-roll Bar, ARB-40-1003.
