Product Install Instructions

You asked and Steeda listened! We were lucky that our 5 in-house S550 Mustangs all came with the rear subframe aligned properly from the factory. But, what we noticed was a lot of people out there were not as lucky. The team here at Steeda went hard to work when we started fielding calls of the rear subframe being misaligned from the factory. So here you have it, Steeda's new S550 IRS subframe alignment kit!

The S550's subframe mounting holes are very large compared to the subframe mounting bolts. Since there is a large difference in bolt and hole size, the subframe can be mis-aligned from the factory up to 1/2" left to right.

The Steeda S550 Mustang IRS Subframe Alignment Kit is made from CNC-machined Delrin to avoid putting two dissimilar metals next to each other, preventing corrosion. Delrin is also less weight then aluminum or steel inserts and therefore keeping performance in mind. The Delrin sleeves slide into the subframe mounting holes, and fill the extra space left between the subframe mount and bolt from the factory.

Our Steeda S550 Mustang IRS Subframe Alignment Kit guarantees that the subframe will be bolted to the same location every time it is lowered. Eliminating the need for unnecessary alignments.

Note: Customers running the CB005 Kit will need to purchase this part Steeda Mustang Alignment Kit for the S550 Rear Subframe for BMR CB005 Kit (15-17 All). An alignment is needed upon initial installation, due to the fact it could have been mis-aligned from the factory and with it now being squared in the chassis, some adjustments might need to be made.

Product Benefits

  • Aligns subframe to chassis
  • No increase in NVH
  • Easy to install
  • No permanent modifications
  • Lifetime warranty
  • No additional hardware needed

Honestly, the fitment is so unbelievable
Added even more STEEDA!!! IRS Brackets and Centering spacers. Lucky for me, we set the IRS properly and the centering spacers went right in, easssyyy. The brackets also went right in. I had a slight snag with the front OE bolt, WD40 did the trick. All looks unreal. Spent the day washing both my cars, so no driving impressions, but I just love the idea that everything is so fastened. Honestly, the fitment is so unbelievable, that sometimes I think Steeda help develop the car. lol.

The car feels so much more planted to the road
This is the first time I've ever done anything suspension wise to my car, David @ Steeda helped out greatly with all my questions as well as getting me setup with an install at their Pompano location with a tour of some badass shop cars and their facility. Everyone @ Steeda - David, Patrick, Matt were great and made sure I was happy with everything. I can't recommend their shop enough to anyone in the area and Matt did an awesome job with everything on the install, even tack welded my Gibson exhaust and turned their clamps a bit to help out. I won't have a chance to do pics this weekend of my spot on the beach as that will give a good before/after comparison when I put them together. The car feels so much more planted to the road, even just turning out of their parking lot I could tell everything felt more connected and precise to what I was telling the car to do. It basically now goes where I want it instead of reacting to what I'm asking it to do if that makes any sense at all? I had some open highway and did a little bit of careful back and forth in my lane and I felt completely planted and not bouncing around back and forth in my seat. Almost found myself doing slalom in between some construction barrels but given how my morning went I decided against it. The springs give the car the look I wanted and make the Vossen wheels look that much better. Nice tighter rebound than stock PP springs and reduces the overall bouncy ness on some of those highway stretches where it feels like you're hitting hydraulics for a half a mile. Also any bridges or overpasses with rough spots where you enter/leave them were solid. The MT-82 bushing insert is noticeable and I had much easier downshifts for highway passes on the way home, feels like a much more solid shift that I had to get a bit used to in a good way. I didn't do any hard launches or try to break the rear end loose at all since I was just getting used to it, will report back later on that. I can't really report on some of the individual IRS components since they all went in at the same time, but I am noticing a slight (and I mean slight) gear wine from the rear with the Black bushings. It's only really noticeable if you try to make it happen and barely push the gas at cruising speed. Nothing I'm worried about and after 4 hours of driving it home windows down and up for a few sprinkles it does not bother at me all. It's not all the time either or in any specific gear so no biggie as far as I'm concerned.

The handling of the car is just perfect
I am beyond please with everything that Jamie did for the installation and alignment. David was an absolute pleasure to deal with in buying and setting up the appointment for me. Everyone at Steeda has been a joy. The car has been completely transformed. The ride quality with the progressive springs is 3 times better vs. the stock GTPP springs. The handling of the car is just perfect. It is so, so flat now when pushing the car hard in any type of turn. Brake dive has been greatly reduced. I would say by 80-90%. I can mash the brake pedal and it just stops, so tried and true. The front-end barely dives at all. This is from 70-75mph and just mashing the pedal. It truly begs for more speed when entering turns. Of course, this only on roads and not a race track or autoX course. Wheel hop has been greatly reduced. I still have a couple more parts to order to virtually eliminate it all together and those will be ordered at a later date. Shifting hard to 2nd gear, I just now get wheel spin and no hop. Only time I get a little hop is via a hard launch. But again, it is greatly reduced and doesn't happen all the time. The car is so quiet, no increase in NVH in anyway. This has been some of the best money I have ever spent on any car mods, PERIOD. Their parts deliver what they promise and produce outstanding results. Anyone on the fence, I highly recommend you go ahead and purchase their "stuff".

wheel hop on my car is 100% elimated
A couple of months ago, I started looking into overhauling the suspension of my 2015 GT PP. Up to that point, I had put about 7000 miles on my Mustang which allowed me to get a good sense of the issues with the IRS and overall suspension in stock form. Specifically, I wanted to stiffen up the entire rear end and eliminate the dreaded wheel hop while keeping NVH as close to the stock levels as possible. I also decided to replace the stock PP springs and sway bars in order to improve the overall handing, reduce body roll/brake dive and get rid of the bouncy ride. After going through a ton of feedback on the various solutions from the aftermarket (a lot of which came from fellow mustang6g members), I decided to go with Steeda. Below are the parts I chose to go with. Differential Bushings (Red/Street) Subframe Alignment Kit Subframe Bushing Support Vertical Links Rear Toe Link Subframe Suport Braces Linear Sport Springs Front and Rear Sway Bars and Billet Sway Bar Mounts Bumpsteer Kit I already had the Extreme G-Trak Brace installed. Now to the most important part...the results. The handling of the car is on a whole different level after the suspension upgrades. Minimal pitch and roll during braking, turns and transitions. Overall, the entire car is very tight with much better turn in. As expected, the biggest improvement is the rear end. The power delivery through the IRS is fantastic. The wheel hop on my car is 100% eliminated. The rear tires feel as if they are glued to the ground. Coming out of corners, I am able to get on the throttle earlier and more aggressively without any drama. In terms of NVH, I hear some gear whine in 6th gear under minimal throttle between 75 and 80mph (windows closed/stereo off) as a result of the differential bushing inserts. Apart from that, I can't tell a difference compared to stock. Even the ride quality feels great. My fiancé couldn't tell that anything had been done to the car. Overall, I am very happy with the results. Props to Steeda for the excellent work they have done. In the near future, I am looking forward to adding a quality set of performance shocks/struts and hitting the road course.

I am a Steeda believer
The car is a totally different handling car. Took the wife for a ride today and she said it is smoother than before. Much less bouncy. That is good news to me. Cause if the wife is happy I am happy. But I will say that these mods have really changed my confidence in the car. I had one little 30mile spirited section with S curves on my way home that normally when they say 45mph.. you can take them at 55mph... I took them at 70mph and the car was just planted solid. No roll, no rebound and no breaking loose on the rear when I accelerated from the apex. It just transitioned smoothly and predictably. Now the only thing the wife did notice was the gear whine. Yes the Red differential bushing will cause some gear whine, but I have been told that replacing the stock gear oil in the rear end will help quiet that noise down. We will see as I will most likely change mine out here in the next week. Amsoil or Royal Purple is what a lot of people recommended. So, all in all, if someone is on the fence about these suspension upgrades, just do it. The guys at Steeda are top notch and know their stuff. Almost all of them have Mustangs and the owner even races them. A final shout out to [email protected] What a great help he was. He made sure everything was ready and there, his recommendations were spot on. David, again, Thank you man. I can hardly wait for the next batch of Steeda goodies come out.. Count me in already. I am a Steeda believer.

What an amazing difference
Installed the Steeda IRS Subframe Alignment Bushings, and Steeda IRS Subframe Bushing Support this weekend. What an amazing difference, and not too difficult of an install. I definitely recommend anyone that is thinking about these to knock them out at the same time.

This is the way the car should be with the PP
Since I was going to have the car up on jack stands in my driveway, I figured I'd do just about everything at once. Installed the Steeda IRS subframe bushing supports, alignment inserts, differential bushing supports(black), transmission bushing insert, and the Steeda shifter base bushing bracket along with the FR touring cat back. I had to have the upgraded bushing in the knuckle done at the Ford dealer. The bounce is gone! This is the way the car should be with the PP.

These mixed with the IRS bushing supports from Steeda and you have a lot of your wheel hop resolved
These do two things: (1) they force the IRS cradle on-center to each of the bolt holes in the vehicle's frame. This makes sure your rear wheels and wheel gaps/fitments are even on each side and improves your ability to get a quality performance alignment and install other Steeda (or even competitor) parts. (2) These shore up/reinforce the inner part of the IRS bushing. You will read misinformation on the forums that this is not the case, yet the competition sells a product that fits into the IRS bushings to do just that. These mixed with the IRS bushing supports from Steeda and you have a lot of your wheel hop resolved and a much more connected IRS.
