    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. Stephanie, with americanmuscle.com, here with an overview and an install of this Ford Performance Track Handling Pack for the 2015 and newer S550 GT and EcoBoost Mustang. In this video, we're gonna cover a few topics with this handling pack. We're gonna talk about the different components, the performance you can expect, and the install as well. So I'll get into more detail later, but I can tell you right now that the install for this kit isn't hard. But there are quite a few pieces so it is gonna be a little bit time-consuming and a little bit of work. That being said, I'm going to call this install a two-out-of-three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The Ford Racing Assembled Handling Pack is gonna be a good option for the S550 owners out there. That are looking to do some more serious handling upgrades, but that wanna make sure all of the components are gonna work together and that all of the most important areas of the suspension are taken care of. There are a few different handling packs on the site, but this is gonna be one of the more complete and aggressive ones. So it's a good option for those that are looking for a touch more performance-over-ride quality, and more of a complete package. This kit has some of the most important suspension upgrades that are really gonna change the handling performance of the car. It has Ford Racing's Track front and rear shocks and struts, a set of Ford Racing Track lowering springs, adjustable front and rear sway bars with poly bushings. And rear toe links as well as new performance pack spec upper strut mounts. The factory suspension is set on more for having a comfortable ride quality and being easy to drive than anything else, which is why there's so much room for improvement in the minds of some. Performance-based minds want something that's more than comfortable. They want effective. Usually, in order to get better suspension performance, you need to take away some ride quality. Since a lot of the ride quality comes from soft rubber bushings and components that allow for twisting. Taking away too much comfort, however, leads to an uncomfortable ride, noticing all the little bumps in the road and a jarring ride. Overall, this kit does give a stiffer-than-factory ride quality,, but the kit is paired to not be too harsh. So, still comfortable, but also able to perform when you want it to. These are all gonna be Ford Racing parts, and the first thing that we're gonna be looking at is the Ford Racing "Y" springs. These springs are gonna have an even one-inch drop, all the way around the car. Which doesn't sound like much but it's a pretty decent drop from the S550 chassis. The S550s respond a lot more to a little bit of drop from the lowering spring, so it doesn't take much to get these cars looking and driving better. The springs are enough to make a noticeable difference in both handling and in looks. And I'd say that this package is more geared towards handling improvements than appearance improvements. The "Y" springs, though, just to be clear on their intended use, are not intended to be used with the factory shocks and struts. These springs are a little bit different than the street springs are. The street springs are gonna be a touch softer, and not geared as much towards track-like performance, so just keep that in mind. I still wouldn't say that these have a harsh ride quality, but they are firm, for sure. And they do give you the best of both worlds between comfortable and functional. So these are the Ford Racing Track shocks and struts that are designed to be used with these springs. You're looking at pre-assembled fronts with a new upper strut mount. Which is nice because Ford Racing is taking a little bit of the work out of the install for you. You won't need a spring compressor now. These are just ready to go, right into place. Then you have your rear shocks as well. These are also specifically designed to not only compliment the Ford Racing springs but the sway bars as well. And we all know that all these parts work very closely together. So when you start upgrading things like lowering springs and sway bars, you have to keep in mind things like spring rate, and sway bar thickness, and setup. With an assembled kit like this, you have the comfort of knowing that all of these components work well together. Moving on to the front and rear sway bars, these are an upgrade over the factory sway bars. These are also solid steel construction bars, which are a big upgrade over the factory bars. But the downside here is that they do have some weight to them. These bars are two-way adjustable which is different than the other Ford Racing Handling Kit that's available. These also come with polyurethane bushings. The adjustability means that you can set the bars as you like to. You can soften or stiffen the bar, depending on how you want it to feel and perform. The poly bushings are gonna help add some much needed stiffness and reduce deflection. But they aren't gonna be so solid that they don't allow for any movement which would create NVH. We're always trying to find that balance between better performance and NVH. The sway bars are also gonna include the frame brackets, which gives you more of that complete upgrade. The last thing we're looking at here are the toe links, and these are gonna help you a little bit with wheel hop, and even in the corners. They give you some stability to the IRS and help reduce some of the unwanted handling characteristics. Keep in mind that while all of these components are the major suspension upgrade and they are designed to work together to improve handling. They're not the only components that you can upgrade. There are always other ways to improve up on the S550 platform based on how you'd like your car to perform, but these are still a good step towards making some big changes. You can expect to eliminate some wheel hop, have less nose dive during hard braking. Have better cornering ability, a lower center of gravity for an all-around more planted car. And having a more stable rear which is gonna allow for harder launches. And keeping the suspension more consistent and planted no matter what you're doing with your car. As far as price, this kit is gonna be just south of $1,300. I will say that picking up an assembled kit will save you a few bucks over purchasing each component of the kit individually. Now, you probably could mix brands and piece together your own kit. But you do run the risk of missing out on some ride quality and performance just from the fact that these pieces are all made to work together. But piecing your own kit is always an option if you don't have the budget for a kit like this. You also have to keep in mind that Ford Racing components are always top-notch, so you can expect a perfect fit and highly functional components. So, the install here is a lot of work, but I wouldn't say that it's a difficult install. Like I said earlier, I'm gonna call this a two-out-of-three wrenches, just because you are doing a bit of an overhaul here. It's all straightforward and you won't need any tools out of the ordinary, especially since the front springs are already installed in the struts. You just need to get your stock springs out. You will need an assortment of different sockets and wrenches and, if you decide to tackle this yourself, you can expect to spend about six hours. Having a lift is gonna make things a lot easier here, but you can complete the install with a jack and stands. You also have to keep in mind that you'll wanna go for an alignment after the install's all completed. You're tweaking, pretty much, the suspension here, so it's necessary to get that alignment. So, ultimately, you're going to need to get down to the spring and strut assemblies. So everything like the wheels, the brakes, the ABS lines will need to be moved out of the way so you can pull the assemblies out of the car. The front spring and strut assembly is very straightforward. The rear's a little bit different because the IRS subframe will be dropped along with the rear shock mount. So you can slide the rear springs out and get your new shocks in. You might need to pop out your air box to get to some of your bolts for the front sway bar. And the majority of the bolts can be removed from reaching down through the engine bay, except for the unlink bolts, of course. And the rear's even easier to get to, you can get to all your bolts from below the car. All these parts reinstall the same way as the factory ones came out. And, like I said, this is a good amount of work to get this all done but it's not difficult. Wrapping things up here, the Ford Performance Track Handling Pack comes with lowering springs, front and rear shocks and struts, front and rear sway bars, and rear toe links. This kit is designed to give you track-like handling performance. And, as always, I suggest you check it out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Track Car Handling. Lowering springs alone are fine to change the appearance of your Mustang, but if you want your Pony to handle like a true track car you need to upgrade your entire suspension. The Ford Racing Handling Pack is a complete suspension upgrade kit to turn your S550 into a corner-carving machine.

    Pre-assembled Struts. No spring compressor is required, this Ford Racing Handling Kit comes with the front struts and springs already pre-assembled so they are ready to bolt-in with no hassle or headaches.

    Complete Kit. The Ford Racing Handling Package has everything you need. The kit includes pre-assembled front struts, rear shocks, lowering springs, front and rear sway bars. All these components were designed to work together as a package to deliver improved handling without sacrificing ride quality.

    Ford Racing Quality. When adding suspension parts to your Pony, trust the folks that know it best to provide top quality components that are made to out perform and out last the competition.

    Application. This Ford Racing Pre-assembled Handling Package is specifically tuned for use on the 2015-2018 GT and EcoBoost Fastback models that is not equipped with the MagneRide Suspension, it will not fit convertible models.

    Please Note. Your Mustang may require a new alignment once this Track Handling Pack is installed.

    • The sway bars and struts on the track suspension kit are stiffer than the GT Performance Pack stock specs and the springs are lower and stiffer.

    A previous question stated that all necessary hardware is included. However Ford Performance is saying that you also need their part number M-FR3-FASTENA as most of the original nuts and bolts are torque to yield which apparently means one time use. I don't see them in the photos. Are they included or do I also need the M-FR3-FASTENA Kit?

      Worth every penny

      I put this suspension package on my brand new 17 GT with only 500 miles on the car. IMO the car should some with this package from the factory. I chose this over the street package because the street package was basically the same as the performance package, but lower. The car looks amazing and the ride is just right. I was a little concerned that the ride would be too harsh/ stiff for my wife, but I get no complaints. The car handles like its on rails, very responsive. Had the local ford dealership do the install for $750 that included the alignment.

      Upgrades

      So far I have really loved this product. I installed it with the ford performance shaft upgrades also. It gave the car a more aggressive stance, and it really hugs the corners now. I'm really glad I did the upgrade! The reason it took me the whole weekend is because I wanted to take my time and make sure I did it right.

      Handling improvement at a cost

      I had my mechanic friend with a lift install this for me - It's a little too involved for my skills. It took him a few hours to do and said it wasn't super easy but the instructions were good. The handling will get tighter and you'll stick to the road better, but you'll feel a lot more of the bumps than the stock suspension. No surprise there but if I were to do it over again I may have gotten the street handling pack instead of the track. I really can't tell much of a difference in the height of the car. I should have done a before and after measurement. Overall this seems like a decent value for the price and I would recommend them to anybody looking to improve handling at the cost of a little comfort and ride quality (but come on, you bought this car for performance, right??)

      Major Improvement in Handling.

      My car is a 2016 non/PP GT. The handling was kind of non-existent with body roll and there wasn't any kind of actual dampening over bumps; all this made the car feel really clumsy to drive. Upgrading to this kit practically changed it into a different car. There is no body roll and the car does not pitch down severely as you brake. Bumps are also dampened out without being too harsh. The 1" drop is not too extreme and I haven't had any problems with scrapes. I would never go back to the original setup because the car drives so much more confidently. The ad warns it may affect ride quality, but honestly, it rides better now that there is better control of the car. FRPP also supplies a different alignment that offers better steering response but it might cause your tires to wear a little bit faster. It does steer quicker with that setup, so you can offset that with the sport-mode steering if you weren't using that already so that the car doesn't feel so nervous, especially if you have the 18x8" wheels. If you have the garbage Pirelli All-Season tires, you may want to consider better tires in the near-future because this suspension kit far outpaces them.

      Worth every penny...

      I went back and forth with this and the Performance pack and I'm glad I choice this one. It does however stiffen the ride but I prefer it this way. Cornering at high speeds is nothing. I feel very safe and comfortable now with this kit installed. Plus the 1 inch drop makes it look great. Only one thing I would like to mention that I didn't see anyone say yet, is that because of the 1 inch drop, I needed Caster Camber plates to make the alignment spec on the front right. It wasn't really a big deal, like the left side was 1.4 (Green) and the right side was 1.5 (Red), so 0.1 made it go from green to red. All in all still worth it and I'm loving how it handles now.

      Couldn't be happier

      Had this installed by Ford soon with stage 2 power pack, to make sure my warranty wasn't voided. I bought my 17 GT with the 20" wheel/Goodyear f1 pkg, and there's very little space between tire and wheel well. The track pack lowered my GT by about an inch, and it looks really good/aggressive. The car handles great, no body roll, like riding on a rail. I only had 500 mi. on car when installed because I felt this was a necessary addition. I was almost going to go with the street suspension but after reading the other reviews, I opted for the track pkg. And so glad I did. Cruising, not much different than stock, but it's when you start cornering with speed is when you really feel the difference. So glad I went with the track pkg.

      Serious suspension upgrade!

      I was able to install this kit by myself (I didn't have patience to wait for help). It's straight forward and everything fits perfectly. The car sits just under an inch lower and the handling is a night and day difference. Well worth the cost and effort. The ride is stiff, but not harsh. No complaints about ride quality from the wife, so it passed the most important test. The car sits nice and level during take off and hard braking. Buyer beware: This kit comes in 3 boxes. Somehow, I received TWO box 1 of 3's, and no box 2 of 3. I had to return to AM TWICE to get all 3 boxes correctly. That's right, not one retry, but I didn't get the correct items until the THIRD attempt to ship this to me. After all the back and forth shipping, it took weeks to get it right. AM was good to work with to get it fixed, but the inconvenience was very frustrating, and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else.

      Best Bang for the Buck

      I have a 2016 GT with the Performance Pack and felt that the suspension and handling could be a lot better. There was a lot of dive under heaving braking and the roll through the corners was not desirable. I installed the kit with a buddy and I would recommend having one other person if not 3. The hardest part was getting the springs in the rear and getting the Rear IRS low enough to slip them in. Total time was about 7 hours. Take your time and get ready to fight. Now the gains. What a night and day difference. After I got the car aligned I played around with it a little and was impressed. That evening I had a track event over by Road Atlanta were I could really test out the gains. What a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! The Turn in was perfect. Tons of grip and the car went exactly were I pointed it without any complaining. No diving under braking and the car was completely flat through the corners. I was able to out perform 90 percent of the other cars. Was even able to catch and pass a base C7 corvette. This kit performs fantastically and for the money it is a steal. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who has a S550 even those with the performance pack. You will not be disappointed.

      Get some serious handling improvement

      I was a sitting on the fence between this and the street handling pack. I'm glad I fell this way as the ride on my 2015 GT is now noticeably more firm but not like a race car. You could still take a long trip with this setup and be comfortable. Personally I like hitting a bump and having the car recover quickly and stay planted vs floating over a bump. I think this still allows a comfortable ride (on most road surfaces) and man, you can stick corners like a slot car. The Ford shop manager who installed this for me has a Rousch and he said he was very impressed with the handling on my GT when he took it for a test ride. When I got in it, I could tell instantly that the car was more planted and would shoot wherever I pointed the wheel. I didn't really car about lowering the car, but now that it's done, I don't mind it, it does look a bit more serious. I need to upgrade my tires :) I don't think you'll regret this if you are looking to make your mustang more of a "sports car". It takes the inherent handling characteristics of the GT and improves them a great deal.

      Smooth Ride

      I own a 2015 ecoboost Mustang. When I added the ford performance track handling pack fastback it changed my car into a smooth ride. No more hard bumps, a firm but easy steering change which allows me to be more relaxed while driving. The stance is sporty and aggressive I love it. The car holds on to the road, no more sliding all over the road during accelerations.

      Great kit!

      Wish this was stock suspension! I was expecting to sacrifice ride quality after installation. I was wrong. This made it stiffer, absolutely but in no way is it to bouncy or rough. Secondly, save yourself 600 in installation costs and do this one with a friend. Took us about 20 hours but we took our time and took many breaks since we were working with a jack and jack stands. The process is long but straight forward and everything fit like a charm. The hardest part was the rear toe links as we had to rent a ball joint press from our local autozone in order to get out the bearing for the link. Got an alignment and all was well! Other than that, not enough can be said about the difference! I have a GT premium but non PP and there is no more wheel hop, curb roll or the overall floaty feeling that came with the stock GT suspension. Worth the money!

      Nailed It

      Ford Hit the nail on the head with this Track kit. drops the car about 1 inch for a perfect stance, and the handling is killer. As far as install goes, again great Kit. Front sway bar is a little tricky with out dropping the subframe.
