Ford Mustang Owners Manual: Axle information

Traction-Lok Axle (If Equipped)

This axle provides added traction on slippery surfaces, particularly when one wheel is on a poor traction surface. Under normal conditions, the Traction-Lok axle functions like a standard rear axle.

Extended use of other than the manufacturers specified size tires on a Traction-Lok rear axle could result in a permanent reduction in effectiveness. This loss of effectiveness does not affect normal driving and should not be noticeable to the driver.

Axle with TORSEN Differential (If Equipped)

This axle provides added traction on slippery surfaces, particularly when one wheel is on a poor traction surface. Under normal conditions, the axle equipped with a TORSEN differential functions like a standard rear axle.

Extended use of other than the manufacturers specified size tires on a rear axle equipped with a TORSEN differential could result in a permanent reduction in effectiveness. This loss of effectiveness does not affect normal driving and should not be noticeable to the driver.
