Wauconda, IL – Kenny Brown Performance recently released their updated line of Advanced Geometry Independent Rear Suspension Components designed to fit 1999-2004 SVT Cobras. Along with new manufacturing, several changes have been made including a re-designed upper control arm and other updates to weight, strength and function.
“Increased demand for pre-engineered IRS suspensions has prompted us to update and continue our line of Advanced Geometry Systems for the 1999-2004 SVT Cobra", according to Kenny Brown. “The quantum-leap forward in technology that the Cobra IRS represents provides the perfect platform for open-track enthusiasts who can now find these cars for a reasonable price. We raced IRS Cobras starting in 1999 all the way through 2004, and we still have several customers who compete with it today. We know exactly how to make that architecture work for the street and race track, and we are the only company that has ever supported it whole heartedly".
Kenny’s Advanced Geometry Independent Rear Suspension is designed to replace the OEM suspension components offering; racing-inspired suspension geometry, 40 percent reduction in weight, and conversion to coil-over shock design. A complete independent rear suspension upgrade consists of; Tubular Rear Lower Control Arms, Tubular Rear Upper Control Arms, IRS Rear Steer Kit, IRS Forward Torque Brace, Aluminum IRS Differential Bushings, and Coil-Over Rear Upper Shock Mounts. There are also a range of coil-over shocks available depending on the application.
The extended performance benefits of the Kenny Brown Advanced Geometry Independent Rear Suspension are; improved handling, reduced wheel-hop, eliminates rear steer, reduced weight, improved strength, and clearance for coil-over shocks. Everything you need to transform the car for aggressive street or full blown open-track is available in one simple system, or combination of components depending upon your application.
Tubular Rear Upper and Lower Control Arms are designed to replace the 1999-2004 Cobra OEM control arms and are available for street and competition applications. The tubular rear control arms feature urethane bushings for reduced deflection and upgraded rear sway bar links for improved strength and performance. The new control arms eliminate the rear spring seats, allowing for conversion to coil-over shocks and much greater adjustability.
IRS Rear Steer Kit is designed to replace the OEM rear tie rods and inner tie-rod ends with heavy-duty competition-grade hardware. The rear steer kit eliminates the rear steer factor allowing the car to exit corners better with improved grip and helps to eliminate wheel-hop.
IRS Forward Torque Brace is designed to strengthen the area where the differential assembly mounts to the IRS carrier assembly. The forward torque brace improves traction and helps eliminate wheel-hop.
Aluminum IRS Differential Bushing Kit is designed to replace the OEM rubber bushings to eliminate deflection at the rear differential housing. The aluminum bushings improve traction, help eliminate wheel-hop and act as a heat soak to pull critical temperature away from the fragile rear differential.
Coil-Over Rear Upper Shock Mounts attach at the OEM rear upper shock mount and allow for fitment of competition coil-over rear shocks. The rear shock mounts are bolt-on and will work for most aftermarket coil-over shocks. When running coil-over shocks in the rear it is strongly recommended that you also use the Heavy-Duty Rear Shock Tower Brace.
