This is the time now to do it. Not to be biased but we all know that the Ford mustang is capable of making some serious power but now the mustang just has to be further improved for handling.

Oh yeah for sure the leaf spring suspension even did a number back in the day lol funny how they call it drifting these days but back then we didn't have a choice.

it was rumored it's going to have weight distribution near 50/50 and a lower center of gravity all playing into how well it handles. This will be a very different mustang but an amazing one for sure.

There are some who still believe a sold rear axle is the way to go for drag cars due to strength.

I'm not sure if Ford kept the Mustang this way with the same belief.

The truth is that there are many very powerful cars with independent rear suspension that do just fine on the track...

So independent rear suspension! Bring it on.

In all fairness a Solid Rear lays down power WAYY more efficiently than an independent rear. Its a fact that is un-changeable, and if the new Independent rear is set up stiff enough for track use the S550 will still give you the same jittery skittishes on the road. Stiff suspension and road bumps still behave the same way...

I much rather have an independent rear suspension than a solid rear.

I'm rather indifferent, but IR vs SR seems to be the issue most have latched onto.

I would think that many would be outraged if they still kept a solid rear axle in the s550.
