We’ve teamed up again with our friends at J&M Products for another Mustang6G Giveaway Contest!

After several years of revisions and testing J&M Products/Hotpart.com has finally released its S550 Mustang rear shock mounts.

J&M Products manufactures these performance shock mounts from high strength grade 50 steel and then fully TIG welds them. These high strength bearing mounts replace the weak cast aluminum shock mount. Unlike the factory mounts, the J&M mounts use a specially designed heat treated Chrome-Moly spherical bearing that stops the deflection caused by the soft rubber bushing. By removing the rubber, J&M mounts eliminate the deflection that gives the car a bouncy feeling when using stiffer shocks or lowering springs.

The Mustang GT / Bullitt has been named a Car & Driver 2019 10Best!

For 2019, the Mustang GT replaces the spot vacated by the Camaro, whose transcendent chassis failed to prop up its awful outward visibility, practicality, and looks in the face of withering 10Best competition. Why now? Though eligible for 10Best last year, the updated-for–’18 Mustang wasn’t available in time for testing. The GT350 was, thanks to its 2017 win, but failed to retain the award; its lack of changes rendered it ineligible this year. Read Car & Driver’s full review inside!

Inside Ford’s new Advanced Manufacturing Center in Redford, Michigan, Ford Motor Company previewed the innovative technologies that will help to build parts for its next-generation vehicles, including the 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang.

We don’t have much information yet, but Ford revealed that the next GT500 Mustang will receive at least two brake parts made from a 3D printing machine while the F-150 Raptor built for China will include a 3D printed interior part.

As the company notes, 3D parts will no doubt become increasingly more prevalent as 3D printing becomes more affordable.

The Drive has discovered a new trademark filed by Ford which may the be replacement name for the much maligned (and since scrapped) Mach 1 name for the upcoming Mustang inspired hybrid. If so, the upcoming hybrid may be called the Mach E.

The Mach E would seem to be a fitting name considering the upcoming crossover’s electric hybrid power plant, while avoiding stepping on the legacy of the Mach 1 name. We like the name, but what do you think? Share your thoughts inside.
