TCI 1967-1968 Cougar Rear Torque Arm Suspension 531-5102-00
1967-1968 Cougar Rear Torque Arm Suspension
The Torque Arm features a unique slider on the front of the arm that slides for and aft and rotates as the car goes through suspension travel thus allowing the cars handling to be controlled by the coil-over shocks and the rear sway bar with no suspension binding variables. The kit allows for a lower stance, greater rear axle control and dramatically improved handling.
Performance and drag racing: this kit is rated up to 1000 HP. When combined with the TCI modernized front IFS your Mustang or Couger will pull skid pad and slalom course numbers similar to a C6 ZO6 Vette and with narrower tires! On the strip 60 foot times of 1.4″ have been achieved in a number of cars with sticky tires. 18″ street tire cars with AC and full interiors etc. were pulling 1.619s. Launches are straight and very controllable.
The kit is a fully bolt on application except for welding the shock brackets, panhard bracket, pinion aduster brackets and optional sway bar brackets onto your stock 3″ axle housing or a Ford 9Ã¢â‚¬Â housing. Also available is aN optional Currie Ford 9Ã¢â‚¬Â housing with all the brackets installed and heli-arced welded in place. 5x 4.50″ Ford bolt pattern standard, 5x 4.75″ is available at no additional cost. Base kit is for a non-tubbed car. Choose the tubbed car optotion above if you may or already have tubbed your car. This allows the use of much wider rims/tires. BUT, you can run up to a 315mm tire WITHOUT choosing the tubbed option if you tubbed your car! For hard cornering, the non tubbed bracket placement works better.
