Looking for information about IRS suspension

I've heard about the independent rear suspension but never really bothered to go and gather any real information.

So my questions are.
What's the handling power on them?
Any problems with the set up?
Is it mainly used for street, road course, or maybe strip?
Lastly does anyone have a sn95 with that setup? Or have a picture of one?

P.S I love how the exhaust goes under the suspension not over like on solid rear axles. Bump for a mean stance!

I don't know much about them other than they are great for a better handling street or road course car, but they break fairly easily if you launch them too hard with sticky tires at the drag strip. A lot of 03-04 Cobra owners who ran at the drag strips changed theirs out for solid axles.


To get more info visit the 99-04 forums and talk with the guys who own them.


Never saw one in an SN95, but since they share underpinnings with the 99-04 Mustangs I bet they could be made to fit fairly easily.

The IRS is JUNK. It's heavy and fragile from what I've read. It's very common to swap to a lighter, stronger live axel like Trojan said. I will move this to the SVT section as we have several Termi owners here, no need to create another thread.

Re: Looking for information about IRS suspension

Since his thread has to do with possibly installing one in an SN95, I was going to leave it here for anyone with the same interests.

Sorry For the hassle guys. Just have seen some sn95 guys with them figured I'd ask of anyone has one installed. From the sounds of it I'll just stick with the 8.8

It's no hassle and it's a perfectly valid swap for someone wanting to improve the road handling of their Mustang.

Alright. I'll prolly just stick with putting it down the strip. I've done enough left hand turns for one life time haha
