Competition Engineering Mustang Engine Torque Link Kit ('79-'93 5.0L) - Installation Instructions

Installation Time

60 minutes


1. Loosen and remove the power steering pump and a/c brackets. It is not necessary to disconnect the lines. The supplied Engine Bracket mounts on the stud that goes through the power steering pump bracket and the a/c bracket into the cylinder head.

2. Mount the Engine Bracket on to the stud so that it sits flush against the cylinder head.

3. Re-install the power steering and a/c brackets.

NOTE:It may be necessary to trim the power steering and a/c brackets in the area that mounts to the stud. 1/4" is the total amount of material that should be removed.

4. Remove the two bolts that retain the driver's side sway bar frame mount. Discard the bolts and nut plate.

5. Install the supplied Frame Bracket onto the top of the sway bar frame mount. Make sure that the mounting tab is in line with the Engine Bracket. Secure it in place with the 3/8"-16 bolts and locknuts.

6. Assemble the link using the 1/2"-20 clevises and jamnuts. Measure the center to center distance of the new mounting brackets and set the link assembly to this dimension.

7. Install the assembled link using the supplied clevis pins and clips.

8. Road test and re-tighten all bolts.
