PRANCING AND DAMPING: ENTHUSIASM IGNITED FOR PERFORMANCE-TUNED REAL TIME DAMPING SYSTEMS

Blue Mustang GT on Track

DEARBORN - Real-time adaptive damping systems first appeared nearly 20 years ago (gasp!), and what started out as a luxury vehicle application has evolved into a “dreams come true” scenario for performance vehicle enthusiasts. 

Today, real-time adaptive systems are common in the performance vehicle marketplace. In fact, virtually every Mustang model in the Ford stable offers (or is standard-equipped with) the renowned MagneRide Damping System. 

It’s easy to see why. The electronically controlled MagneRide system is so precise that it reads road conditions 1,000 times per second, automatically adjusting shock absorbers ten times faster than the blink of an eye. It is incredibly precise with extremely fast response times; delivers low-velocity damping control; and brings a better feel at force-velocity curves. 

Pretty trick. What else could you want? 

For Mustang owners, how about this: The Ford Performance MagneRide Handling Pack (M-9602-M). It’s been developed (by Ford Performance calibration engineers) to maximize the handling potential of MagneRide-equipped Mustangs. The kit includes unique springs, sway bars, and a Vehicle Dynamics Module (VDM) software update that provides a substantial improvement to MagneRide-equipped vehicles handling performance. The handling pack also delivers a lower (-20mm), more aggressive-looking stance. 

That’s really trick. What’s not to want? 

Every stallion in the Blue Oval’s stable – from EcoBoost®-equipped Mustangs right through to the all-new Shelby® GT500® – offers (or is standard-equipped with) the renowned MagneRide Damping System.

The Ford Performance MagneRide Handling Pack:

  • Includes Unique Ford Performance Springs and Sway Bars

  • VDM Calibration Ensures Compatibility Between Hardware and Software

  • Improves Handling and Suspension Capabilities

  • Lowers Vehicle Approximately 20mm Front and Rear, Providing a Much More Aggressive-Looking Stance

For Mustangs without MagneRide the Mustang Street Lowering Kit from Ford Performance Parts (M-5300-XA) enables a lower (-1”), more aggressive appearance for 2015 – ‘20 Mustang GT and EcoBoost-equipped coupes. It also increases handling dynamics while maintaining excellent ride quality
