Taking the Suspense Out of Suspension with Maximum Motorsports
Let’s be honest, deciding on a suspension system for your SN95 or Fox-body can be pretty overwhelming — especially if you’re not a suspension expert. There are so many options on the market, that deciding what might work best for your individual application can be tricky. Luckily, we were able to get the inside scoop on several suspension set-ups straight from the CEO of Maximum Motorsports, Chuck Schwynoch.
We asked Chuck to walk us through the technical advantages and disadvantages of the following rear suspension setups: an upgraded stock 4-link, a 5-link (which is really a 4-link with the addition of a Panhard bar), torque arm, and an independent rear suspension conversion. He also explained how these systems operate throughout entry, mid-corner, and exit, and what types of driving styles each system is best for. So, if you’re looking to invest in a new suspension system for your Mustang, read on!
