Hotchkis 1965-1966 Ford Mustang Suspension System

Mustangs have always been America’s favorite pony car, but antiquated stock suspension derived from early ‘60s Falcons has always been a sticking point for Mustang fans that want to enjoy a spirited drive through a canyon or country road without seriously cutting or modifying their perfect pony – until now. Hotchkis Sport Suspension is proud to announce its new Total Vehicle System (TVS) for the 1964-66 Mustang that dramatically improves handling, driver control, safety and the overall fun factor. The TVS is engineered to install easily with basic hand tools and, unlike other systems on the market, does not require cutting or other permanent modifications. Systems for 1967-72 Mustangs are set to arrive shortly.

Hotchkis engineers spent hours on the track developing suspension components that were comfortable enough for the street but well tuned for track days, autocross events, or your favorite twisty roads. The result is razor-sharp handling and responsiveness without adversely affecting the ride quality of the car. Laying the foundation for the Mustang’s handling package are Hotchkis Sport Coil Springs up front and Sport Leaf Springs in the rear. The front coil springs provide a ½-inch drop with a stiffer 700 lbs/in spring rate while the rear leaf springs lower the vehicle 1 ½-inches with 180 lbs/in spring rates. This combination creates a more aggressive stance that lowers the vehicle’s center of gravity and improves front-to-rear weight distribution without compromising suspension travel and ride quality.

Most ’64-’66 Mustangs came equipped with either no front sway bar or a skinny single front sway bar from the factory, which did very little to control the car’s pronounced body roll. Working to keep this body roll in check, the upgraded, lightweight Hotchkis 1 ¼-inch (32mm) 4130 tubular steel front Sport Sway Bar delivers a roll stiffness rate of 740 lbs/in, comes with upgraded bushings and end links, and is a direct replacement for the factory bar. The new, adjustable 7/8-inch (22mm) DOM tubular steel rear sway bar has three levels of adjustment allowing you to set the rear roll resistance to 230, 280, or 325 lbs/in to match your driving style and tire setup. The sway bar kit includes premium mounting hardware including steel u-bolts, laser cut axle and frame mounts, polyurethane bushings, Grade 8 bolts, and TIG-welded steel “dogbone” end links with polyurethane bushings.

With this bolt on upgrade you can transform your Mustang in a single afternoon – unlocking the true handling potential of your car, especially when combined with the Hotchkis-Tuned 1.5 SPS Shocks by Fox Racing. Like all Hotchkis Performance suspension products, the ’64-’66 Mustang Total Vehicle System components are manufactured in the USA, come with all necessary hardware, and are finished in durable powder coat.
