SPE Motorsport 2020+ Shelby GT500 Street Vertical links are the first step in helping
eliminate wheel hop.
SPE Motorsport's GT500 Street Vertical links are designed with CNC machined Delrin bushings and 304 stainless sleeves inside a 6061 billet aluminum housing. This design gives excellent performance with zero deflection. SPE has also engineered our vertical links to clear most 18" wheels to allow fitment of a drag tire on the back of your gt500.
These links also work great for street performance, drag race, and road race applications. When launching at the drag strip they help keep the tires planted instead of hopping while trying to grip. The stock vertical link rubber bushings flex under cornering loads giving you inconsistent handling characteristics.
SPE’s billet construction eliminates bushing flex, giving you much improved repeatability on the street, starting line, or in the corners. Delrin bushings are a precision machined component and hold a very tight tolerance; they help eliminate deflection and wheel alignment changes. SPE vertical links add zero noise, vibration, & harnesses (NVH) to the chassis unlike other links with heim style joints. Through real world and CAD simulations there is no gain going to a stiffer heim style rod ends, it only increased NVH.
** SPE Recommends our cradle lockout kit in conjunction with the vertical links to get even better results.
