Back-in-the-day, Mustangs, Camaros, ’Cudas, Challengers, Cougars, Javelins and Firebirds were all competing in the SCCA Trans-American racing series during its golden era, 1966-72.
These original domestic pony cars raced on road courses all over the United States and all were equipped with plenty of torque and horsepower, but it was their braking and cornering performance that was disappointing. The Mustang front strut independent suspension and rear straight axle, leaf spring suspension didn’t add up to an ideal handling package. –
Let’s accelerate forward to the current age of pro-touring, road racing and autocross. These types of competition, whether racing door to door or against the clock, calls for superior acceleration, braking and handling, they must be equipped with the complete package. Until recently, all rear-wheel drive domestic pony cars had straight axle leaf spring rear suspensions that tended to hamper cornering performance.
Heidts Hot Rod and Muscle Car Parts has designed and developed an independent rear suspension (IRS) and independent front suspension systems (IFS) that will dramatically improve the cornering and braking characteristics of the early model 1964 ½-70 Mustangs (and the other muscle cars from that era as well.) The Heidts Pro-G bolt-in IRS and IFS kits delivers true high horsepower cornering and braking performance.
Heidts Automotive Group provides brake parts & kits, suspension and related chassis component solutions for the professional and hobbyist car builder or installer for variety car models and year of production. The Heidts suspension kits comes with everything you need to transform your car into the ultimate apex-hugging canyon carver and autocross cone blazer.
