Features & Details

  • Increases Rear Wheel Traction
  • Improves Launches and Eliminates Wheel Hop
  • Improves Handling and Cornering Ability
  • Perfect for Street, Strip or Road Racing
  • Fits 1986 to 2004 Mustangs with a 8.8" Solid Axle
Improves Traction. If you can't "hook up" you are going nowhere fast. That is why Maximum Motorsports designed the Torque-Arm suspension system. A Maximum Motorsports Torque-Arm will dramatically increase rear wheel traction to improve launches, eliminate wheel hop, improve handling and cornering ability and as an added bonus decrease your 60ft. times. Making this the perfect suspension upgrade for street, strip or road racing.

Required Upgrade. The Maximum Motorsports Torque-Arm requires that either bare metal or black powder coated welded-in style sub frame connectors are installed along with a Panhard Bar before installation of the Torque-Arm.

Recommended Upgrade. It is highly recommend to upgrade your rear lower control arms as the stock rear lower control arms allow far too much fore and aft deflection for proper axle control. We offer both 94-98 Rear Lower Control Arms and 99-04 Rear Lower Control Arms from Maximum Motorsports.

Application. The Maximum Motorsports Standard-Duty Torque-arm is designed to fit the 1986 to 2004 Mustangs with a 8.8" solid rear axle, including the GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and 1993-1998 SVT Cobra models. Does not fit 1999-2004 SVT Cobra's with IRS.

Technical Note. Installation of the Maximum Motorsports Standard-Duty Torque-arm requires removal of the upper control arms. Minor exhaust modifications maybe required for installation.

I have a 99 GT That has been lowered roughly 2", I already have subframe connectors and I'd like to know if this is going to cause be a lot of ground clearance issues. You also need to install a panhard bar I noticed. Does that take the place of the control arms or is it an additional piece?

  • The panhard bar does not take the place of the control arms. Though, you may have some ground clearance since you did lower the car.


hi im looking at the panhard and torque arm but was also looking at the lakewood track bars (part #20161) and was wondering if the mods would be compatable or if they would interfere and cause binding or take up the same space and would this setup be sacrificing cornering for launch speed (i want an all around performance setup as a fun street and ocasonal Track car project)


Helpful (0)
  • Unfortunately that part number was not bringing anything up in my system so I am unable to say for sure. If you can email us the link to that other part and this part we may be able to better answer your question. I will put the link to contact us below.


Can this be installed without a panhard bar? If this needs a panhard bar for installation, does it come with one included or do you sell the required panhard bar?


Helpful (0)
  • It does require a Panhard Bar for installation. Since you remove the upper control arms you will need something to control the lateral movement of the axle. I don't believe AM carries the Panhard Bar right now.


Will this work with the Swarr Automotive swarr bar? Thinking about different options for upgrading suspension components and everyone says get the MM torque arm but I don't know which one to get or if they'll work together


Helpful (0)
  • By examining the customer pictures of the Swarr bar and comparing it to the picture of the installation instructions of the torque arm, it appears that they would try to occupy the same space if you attempted to install them at the same time.

    Transforms Mustang Rear suspension to Supercar status!

    The MM Torque Arm in conjunction with their Panhard bar allows for removal of the Upper Control Arms and Quad Shocks. The rear end actually travels now resulting in a much better ride. It now hooks behind 633 hp/ 629 tq. Turbo'ed Stang. I am on my second year at this power level and it performs as well now as when installed. The car invokes much more confidence in corners as the rear steer or floaty rear end feel and requirement to counter-steer has been eliminated. Our mustangs should have came with this style set-up. Maximum Motorsports builds high-quality, well engineered products, with detailed instructions, for the long haul
