Special Notes

TRU TURN - Musclecar Steering Components

An upgraded steering system that includes StrongArms, steering arms, spindles, draglink bracket, and tie rod assemblies 

What will this system do?

The early Mustang frontends have very poor suspension geometry ... the tires lean outward around turns, the bumpsteer is bad, and there is little room to run a wide wheel.

The TruTurn system resolves ALL these issues ... the tires now lean INTO the turn, the bumpsteer is 0.000" through 5" of suspension travel, and you now have clearance to run up to a 245mm Tire.

 What does this system include?

  1. Spindles – taller overall to improve the camber gain
  2. Steering Arms – designed to eliminate bumpsteer, improve
    ackerman angle, AND allow clearance for up to a 8" wide wheel with a 5.5" backspacing.
  3. Draglink bracket – bolts onto your oem draglink to relocate the inner tierod end to minimize bumpsteer
  4. Tie Rod Assemblies – integrates with your new steering arms and centerlink to provide a true "no fab" bolt on steering system.
  5. StrongArms – incorporates an adjustable spherical bearing for stability, and dropped cross shaft to improve camber gain


General Features

• StrongArm tubular lower control arms [incorporating an adjustable spherical bearing]
• StrongArm tubular upper control arm [incorporating a dropped crosshaft to improve camber gain]
• RideTech spindles, steering arms, and geometry corrected steering linkage
• Compatible with OEM manual steering, AND with the Borgenson power steering conversion box
• Ridetech tall spindles are only compatible with GM A/F body brake systems
• Allows the use of a 17x8 or 18x8 wheel with a 5.5 backspace and a 245mm wide tire

Product FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I have to modify my oem subframe?
    No modifications are necessary at all.

  2. Can I use my existing OEM or other aftermarket dropped spindles with this system?
    No...the RideTech spindle is a critical part of the whole system. Using a different spindle will create highly unfavorable suspension geometry and would be incompatible with our steering arms. 

  3. What is "bumpsteer" and why should I be concerned about it?
    Bumpsteer is a term that refers to the control arms and the steering linkage moving in different arcs as the suspension moves through its travel. When this happens the tierods will move the steering arms [and therefore the wheels] in directions that the driver does not intend. This leads to an "uneasy" feeling car. Some OEM cars [especially older musclecars] can have a lot of bumpsteer...as much as 1"! Imagine the toe setting on your car changing unpredictably as you go down the road! The Tru Turn system nearly eliminates this situation...the bumpsteer is 0" over the entire 5" of suspension travel. This leads to a very stable and comfortable feeling vehicle. 

  4. What is camber gain and why should I be concerned about it?
    Camber gain refers to the rate of camber change the spindle will see through the range of suspension travel. With most OEM cars [especially older musclecars], the OEM suspension geometry will lean the compressed wheel OUT when turning. [Take a look at an early Mustang taking a hard turn] With the Tru Turn suspension the compressed wheel will lean INTO the turn, keeping the tire squarely on the ground thereby offering more lateral grip AND offering a more stable turning experience. 

  5. Is the Tru Turn system compatible with my OEM control arms, or other brands of control arms? 
    No, the TruTurn is specifically engineered to work only with Ridetech StrongArms.
