The CorteX S197 Mustang Xtreme-Grip Watts Link replaces the panhard bar in a few simple bolt-on steps. What makes the CorteX Xtreme-Grip watts link so affective is the 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 be change. This enables balancing the front-to-rear grip of the vehicle so that the desired handling can be achieved.
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.
- Improved dynamic stability
- Increased cornering grip
- Ability to tune front/rear balance of vehicle
- Less lateral tire movement allowing larger tire fitment
Fits 2005 to 2014 Mustangs
