Steeda in The News
Make sure you always visit your local newsstand for copies of various automotive magazines or subscribe to these great publications so you never miss a beat of what is happening in the Ford performance world. Recently, two great publications (5.0 Mustangs & Super Fords and Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords) each had informative and non-biased articles about Steeda Autosports and the vehicles/products we manufacture. With their extensive automotive evaluation experience and their commitment to their readership to report on a factual basis the latest and greatest in the Ford performance world, both magazines had nothing short of rave reviews about what Steeda Autosports delivers to you the Mustang performance enthusiast.
5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
The May 2009 edition of 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords has an update on PROJECT Vapor Trail – Editor Steve Turner’s latest performance modifications to his 2008 GT500 project vehicle. This time the pony gets a major suspension makeover that completely transforms it’s handling and ride to a level that completely impressed the editor.
The article includes step-by-step illustrations of the the suspension modifications including installation of the Steeda Coilover and Watt’s Link suspension components. Steve Turner provides some non-biased commentary that clearly demonstrates the superiority of the Steeda parts superiority over the competition with comments like:
“Project Vapor Trail carves corners, the front end feels lighter, the rearend is locked down, and most important of all, it rides better than you could ever imagine for a slammed S197 on 20s”
“Of course, the parts list was a bit more involved than just coilovers, but the end result was flat out astounding”
“After some rigorous research I fancied Steeda’s adjustable suspension system for the GT500. Not only does the system allow you to tweak the ride height to your liking, but coilovers, by nature, allow you to cherry-pick your spring rate for its intended use.”

Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords
The March, 2009 edition of Muscle Mustang & Fast Fords had a six page evaluation on the aggressive Steeda Q500. Written by Associate Editor Steve Baur, this article titled “Storm Surge” is an outstanding documentary on the supercharged pony that simply leaves the competition in its dust. Steve tested and thrashed the Q500 over a few weeks to make sure he had ample time to give it a comprehensive evaluation over many different driving scenarios and conditions. From daily driving to work, trips down the quarter mile, or on an autocross course – he was blown away with its performance and value. Some of his comments included:
“For the money, you simply can’t ignore the Q500 as a performance-per-dollar bargain……it’s the complete package that rocks the competition.”
“Behind the wheel, we enjoyed the short-throw Tri-Ax shifter. It has to be one of the best we’ve tested for the S197 Mustangs.”
” …it’s those high-speed corners at Sebring where you’ll most appreciate Steeda’s full compliment of suspension components.”
