For many of us, the Fox Body Mustang was the first real muscle car around for us to buy. Easy to modify and build for drag racing and road course racing, as well as on the street, the 1979-1993 Mustang was a seriously capable car. When people began to add horsepower, improve the performance, and customize them to their heart’s content, the cars needed to have the proper supporting upgrades as well. Upgrades along the lines of suspension, tires, brakes, and most importantly - axles are must-have upgrades after adding horsepower or when building a car for dedicated track use.
Heavy-duty axle kits are a great way to manage massive horsepower and serious driving abuse. With a tougher design, thicker bar, and more, these upgraded axles are enough to handle well over what the factory axles could do. Additionally, upgraded axles are a popular upgrade is because many people switch from 4-lug to 5-lug bolt patterns. This adds additional strength at the dragstrip, but also a host of more wheel offerings since it shares wheel fitment with SN95 and New Edge. With parts from widely recognized names like Yukon, Dana, and Ten Factory, you can be sure that your Fox Body will be in safe hands when being pushed to its limit on the track. A wider axle with an upgraded spline will ensure your car not only hooks properly but also will not break under all the power as well between gears.
Here at Steeda, we have been upgrading and modifying the Mustang for over 35 years and in that time we have seen what upgrades work best for them. We got our start with kits like this for the Fox Body when we started racing and we still stand by these upgrades today. When it comes to properly building your Mustang, using these quality parts is a guaranteed way to keep it safe for longer. We have run these axles on our Fox Body Mustangs and we know firsthand how good they are.
