Description

Leave the starting line faster and reduce wheel hop when launching with Steeda upgraded vertical links. These Steeda vertical links are CNC machined from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and use CNC machined Delrin bushings to prevent any flex in the vertical links that would contribute to wheel hop.

Wheel hop is generated when the tires of your GT500 lose traction and suddenly regain traction. Flex in the suspension can change the angle of toe and contributes to the loss of traction and amplifies the wheel hop when you launch. By reducing or eliminating the flex in the IRS of the S550 platform, you can launch smooth and safe without wheel hop. 

Precise machining and sturdy construction that you can trust. The Steeda aluminum vertical links and delrin bushings are CNC machined to precise measurements in order to maintain the OE suspension geometry and retain the incredible handling that the GT500 offers. 

Heavy-duty materials used and ensure a durable part. The vertical links are made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum for a lightweight and strong product. The Delrin bushings reduce flex, have high tensile strength, and have a natural lubricity. Billet steel bushing sleeves and spacers provide additional strength and durability. 

Product Benefits: 
  • Reduces wheel hop
  • Easy installation
  • No flex under load
  • Made in house in the USA
  • No additional noise, vibration, and harshness

Hi everybody Brian from Steeda.com spotlighting our Vertical Links for the 2020 and later Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang. When Ford developed the S550 chassis and ultimately released it to the public in 2015 they really hit a homerun and when they're developing the GT500 there's a lot of pressure on them to follow up the last generations car with even more power and even more performance and they took a lot of what they learned through the first years of the S550 and put it into the GT500. For those of you moving over from an S550 Mustang or have researched them quite a bit you'll notice right away that the Vertical Links for the Shelby GT500 are substantially shorter and there's a good reason for this. When Ford spec the car with massive rear brakes to offset the ridiculously large front brakes, they needed some additional space at the back end. I mean again they're up against some lofty goals as we noted earlier. Most specifically about the rear brakes is they had to go to a separate brake caliper, an electronically controlled caliper for the parking brake. This is where they required some extra space. Now there's a point of contention here, not so much that the vertical link is needed in fact this is going to greatly help reduce wheel hop and get you off the line much faster but the point of contention is and tell us what you thought, did Ford do this because they needed the additional space or is there performance benefit to having a shorter vertical link. I wont tell you what we're thinking but we want to know what your thought is. Building on the functionality of the vertical links, their job is to reduce the amount of deflection that the wheel carrier has, versus the lower control arm. Now what's interesting about this is the lower control arm is designed to move up and down, again we're gonna leave all deflection out of this for at least the sake of this conversation. Whereas the wheel carriers designed to of course hold the axle and the wheel bearing. When under hard acceleration that wheel carrier wants to rotate forward. It's the job of the Vertical Link to prevent this. So really it's trying to keep two things they're trying to move different directions from doing so. It's kind of like keeping oil and water working together or Republicans and Democrats working together. Improving on the factory vertical links we've used the highest level of materials, starting with constructing the Vertical Links of CNC billet lightweight aluminum and for the inserts we use a high-grade nickel-plated steel for corrosion resistance and of course strength and now the real beauty behind these are the Delrin Bushings these will eliminate deflection. That deflection is what again causes things to move in different directions or doesn't allow them to move in different directions. This will reduce wheel hop and improve responsiveness and get the car off the line no matter how much power your making. We probably manufacture these in the USA at all Valdosta Georgia facility because Speed Matters! Now if you enjoy the content of this video please click like and share with other enthusiasts.
