Ford Mustang X-Braces
Chassis flex on the S197 Mustang is a well-documented problem that can often seem like it has no easy solution. Flex is encountered when a chassis bends and moves under pressure and everything from hitting a pothole, to running on a road course at high speed can encourage chassis flex. When a chassis moves, it causes the suspension and tires to take on more of the work to keep the car level and pointed straight ahead. This trait can leave drivers feeling less connected to their Mustang and can enhance an undesirable, unsettled feeling. Yes, even though your American muscle machine is a well-engineered piece of iron that’s designed to hold the road with ease; it could be better.
