The S550 platform created an awesome opportunity for the aftermarket community to come together and make a great car even better! Being such a popular platform, it wasn’t long before people began installing aftermarket shocks on their S550s. However, people all across the country ran into issues breaking the factory rear shock mount. Whether it was drag racing or road racing with very stiff shocks, customers were having all sorts of issues. That’s when the team at Steeda got together to come up with a solution – our S550 Billet Rear Shock Mount.
Featured in the latest issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, our S550 Billet Rear Shock Mounts help to prevent breakage and improve performance, without breaking the bank. Made from billet 6061 aluminum, these mounts are designed to replace the weak cast factory units. Unlike the factory mounts that have a rubber bushing that binds and will deteriorate over time on lowered cars or cars with aggressive shock settings, these units feature a Steeda spec stainless steel spherical Teflon lined bearing for optimum performance and control. Steeda also designed this kit to provide 1/4″ more clearance for wide rear tires on S550 Mustangs.
As Evan Smith points out in the article, our mount is designed for the S550 chassis specifically and offers more strength and rear shock control than you can get from the factory mount. Best of all, you can use them with factory or aftermarket shocks so its suitable for all setups.
