Whether you have just picked up a Ford Mustang for the strip or the street, one of the most popular modifications nearly every enthusiast seeks after is that of suspension. Be it for looks or for slaloming through the twisties, lowering the Mustang is a very solid and appealing change-up from the stock 4×4 ride height.

The Detroit Speed Ford Mustang is a classic project car that has been built entirely from the ground-up, with very little detail ignored by the crew. In the midst of the build process, the Aluma-Frame subframe assembly is completely taken into factor with painstaking measurement and precision application. From shock tower trimming to matching up to the framerail with some minor drilling, the Aluma-Frame has the capability to fit classics as well as many late model Mustangs.
There isn’t a whole lot more to say, other than the pictures from the PHR article during the installation process speak volumes of what this aftermarket suspension piece has to offer.

OK, everyone. Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past three decades, you know full-well the Ford Mustang has always been a treat to turn through the corners on the track or spin down the drag strip. Furthermore, one of the best ways to maximize the experience is via modification to any Mustang suspension setup from stock to “not so”. Kenny Brown Performance isn’t a stranger to the notion of refining chassis and suspension balance & performance to get the best out of every Ford Mustang from the advent of the Fox in 1979, all the way up to the upcoming 2013 Mustang. The latest 2012 Mustang catalog from Kenny Brown features a complete lineup of parts which also touch back to any of the SVT Cobra models spread about from 1979 up through 2004. It doesn’t stop there, however–even Shelby GT500 owners will have something to flip pages over and slap on their snakes with the offerings found within the catalog.

Ford Mustang fans who are nuts about autocross or road racing will want to take a good look at a nifty suspension product we stumbled upon just recently. DHR Fabrication has released their new S197 Mustang X-brace, available for 2005-2009 Ford Mustangs, including coupes and convertibles. This X-brace ties the front lower control arm mounting location to the sub-frame using all existing holes, which not only eases installation, but also shows fine craftsmanship. The X-brace also knits up key structural locations together for increased compliance under the extreme driving conditions commonly experienced on the racetrack. As a result, there is an improvement in driver confidence and as a direct result, faster lap times. A roofless car will benefit the most from chassis stiffening upgrades, as they have a tendency to flex more than their coupe counterpart. Additionally, DHR has produced a K-member brace, which can be used in conjunction with the X-brace for greater control of your Mustang, or it can be used separately if the budget is tight. Keep reading for all the gritty details in the official Press Release.
