Magnum IFS F.A.Q.
These are responses to our most frequently asked questions about the Magnum IFS range. For model specific data, please see the PDF tech data sheets available for download from the relevant page for the particular model you're interested in.
Do you have a power steering option?:
Currently the 48-52 Ford F1, 53-56 Ford F-100 and 55-59 Chevy models come standard with power steering. All other models are currently available with manual steering only - we are working with our partner Titan Engineering UK to develop a power steering option for these models in the future.
Do you have stainless steel control arms available:
No. All our control arms are made with Cold Drawn Seamless steel tube and powdercoated. As all our control arms are CNC bent in bulk we would need to do a complete run of stainless bends. If we receive enough demand we may consider a run of stainless steel control arms.
Do I have to cut the inner guards in my early Holden?:
All Magnum GT/GS units for early Holdens (FX through to HG) require cutting a window in your inner guard to allow clearance for the upper control arm. We also now make the GX unit for FE through to HG which does not require inner guard modification.

Why do GT/GS units require inner guard modification?:
Because early Holdens are essentially quite small cars. Most people these days want to fit a reasonable size wheel and tyre package under the front for handling and aesthetics, they also want to have the car slammed and retain proper steering lock. All these things require a narrower wheel mounting face than standard to get the wheels in under the guards in to their happy place. How can we achieve this? Two ways, either build very short control arms which results in poor suspension geometry, or as in the case of the Magnum IFS, move the control arms mounts inboard - hence requiring a clearance window to be cut in the inner guard.
What is the turning circle?:
Turning circle depends largely on the vehicles wheelbase so varies between different models. For steering rack ratios and turns lock-to-lock please see model specific data sheets.
