'79-'07 Ultimate Mustang Parts
Carbon Fiber Taillights
Now owners of '94-'98 Mustangs can upgrade their rear panels with the new three-light carbon-fiber taillights from American Muscle. The high-quality taillights are direct replacements for the factory version, giving the SN-95s a more modern look. Sold in pairs, they retail for $139.99.
Lethal Performance's Hubcentric wheel spacers and extended lug-nut kit was designed for running wider tires and wheels on '99-and-later IRS-equipped Mustangs. Typically, larger wheel and tire sizes don't have enough clearance from the subframe bolt, leading to dangerous rubbing. With billet-aluminum spacers, the wheel and tire have enough clearance and a more aggressive stance. The kit, available for $75, includes a pair of wheel spacers and 10 extended lug nuts.
Get a Grip
For racy good looks with the added benefit of grip, dress up your Fox-body's pedals with billet-aluminum covers from Brothers Performance. Easy to install in 10 minutes, they brighten the floor and prevent slippage, especially when the bottom of your shoes are wet.
For increased horsepower, the '93 Mustang Cobra used a special intake manifold that became a popular upgrade for '87-'93 5.0 Mustang owners. A replica version is now available from Ford Racing. Offered in a standard finish (PN M-9424-Z51) or polished (PN M-9424-Z51P), the two-piece Cobra intake flows enough air for engines up to 350hp.
UPR's chrome-moly K-member and A-arm for '79-'04 Mustangs provide greater strength and weight savings compared to mild steel competitors. Fully TIG-welded, each unit is powdercoated in silver for a show-car look while offering maximum corrosion protection. The unique under-frame design allows maximum header and oil-pan clearance while retaining factory wheel and engine locations. A coilover kit utilizes an exclusive setscrew design to maintain settings. Premium Eibach springs are included.
In the Clutch
Fidanza clutches are available in four different levels of performance, from mild to wild, for '83-'04 Mustangs. They come with everything needed for installation, including the pressure plate, disc, throwout bearing, and pilot tool. Best of all, there's only one part number to reference per kit, making selection a quick and easy process. Performance clutches are available for the '86-'95 5.0L, '96-'98 4.6L Cobra, '99-'04 4.6L Cobra, '96-'04 4.6L GT, '01-'02 4.6L GT Bullitt, and '03-'04 4.6L Mach I. Separate kits are available for vehicles with the 26-spline TKO transmission.
Steeda reinvented the short-throw shifter when the Tri-Ax shifter was developed for the early Fox-body 5.0Ls. Now versions of it are available for all production Mustang five-speeds, as well as the upgraded Tremec 3550 and TKO. Tri-Ax benefits include a precisely calibrated spring tension that finds Third gear for you, two-position adjustable height, an exclusive BootGuard to prevent damage to the factory rubber boot, adjustable positive stops, and CNC-machined billet construction. A Tri-Ax shifter handle and hardware are included.
Now you can get rid of those dull, foggy, or yellowed headlight lenses with Latemodel Restoration Supply's reproduction six-piece headlight kit for '87-'93 Mustangs. Available with factory-style amber or clear sidemarkers, the headlights are made for a long-lasting finish, unlike the originals. At $79.95 per kit, you can't go wrong.
The Mustang rear-seat delete kits from K Dezines Audio are designed to allow removal of the rear seat while keeping a clean, custom look. Available for '79-'86 hatchbacks, '87-'93 hatchbacks and coupes, and '94-'04 coupes, the kits are designed with removable doors that allow access to the space created by removing the rear seat. The kits are constructed of either 1/2- or 1/4-inch MDF board and are covered in your color choice of carpet. Kits can be special-ordered to fit specific needs. Also available are stereo enclosures that fit the rear-seat delete kits. They fit a 10-inch subwoofer and amplifier, two 10-inch subwoofers, or two 12-inch subwoofers.
Master Power now offers a complete 9-inch Ford rearend assembly with disc brakes for '79-and-later Fox-body Mustangs. Available with standard and nodular cases, they include stock suspension brackets, a limited-slip differential, 31-spline axles, a big-bearing nodular pinion support, a yoke, and a choice of 3.50, 3.60, 3.70, 3.89, or 4.10 gears. Drilled and slotted rotors are optional.
Canton Racing Products was the originator of high-performance and conversion oil pans for '79-and-up Mustangs. Today, Canton's competition and high-capacity oil pans are used on Ford Racing and Roush Performance crate engines. Available for 302, 351W, 351C, FE, 460, and 4.6/5.4L applications, the Canton oil pans are available in aluminum and steel, and with or without power pouches and main supports. Multi-baffles are also available for road-race applications.
Clutch for the Extreme
SPEC Clutches and Flywheels has introduced the Super Twin clutch setup for street and track use in '03-'04 Cobras and Mach 1s with extreme horsepower and torque. It has set a new standard in near-stock driveability, tremendous life expectancy, a no-shimming setup, bolt-in installation, and maintenance-free operation. With all-billet construction, the units are smooth and quiet. Friction is provided by dampened, full-faced, carbon-graphite discs. Organic or full-metallic options are available.
