Ford Mustang (2005-2014) 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 manufacturer’s 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 manufacturer’s 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.
