What Type Of Suspension Does A Mustang Have?

On late-model Mustangs, those built after 1979, there were a few different suspension setups to choose from. For 1979-2004 Mustangs, the front suspension featured a modified MacPherson struts setup that used struts, lower A-arms, and coil springs mounted between the K-member and the A-arms. The 1979-2004 Mustang utilized a triangulated four-link rear suspension, except for 1999-2004 Cobras which featured an independent rear suspension.

For 2005-2014 Mustangs, a strut front and three-link rear suspension were used. In 2015, Ford switched to an independent rear suspension as a standard feature on all Mustangs.

Do Mustangs Have Independent Suspension?

From the factory, only select Mustangs came with independent rear suspension. Cobras built in 1999-2001 and 2003-2004 featured independent rear suspension or IRS for short. All 2015+ Mustangs came equipped with independent rear suspension, giving the S550 a track-ready suspension perfect for road racing.

Do Mustangs Have Shocks Or Struts?

Ford Mustangs came equipped with both shocks and struts from the factory. Shocks were used in the front suspension setups, while the rear used shocks in both the 4 link, 3 link, and independent rear suspension setups.
