The 1999-2004 Mustang Cobra IRS Differential Cover is cast in aluminum, a material prized for its unique property of strength without the weight of steel or cast iron. Yet aluminum is not as flexible as steel, so when you push your Cobra to the limit in the corners or at the drag strip, you may be applying enough force to twist the cover beyond it's ability to flex. Repeatedly doing this causes the cover to fatigue & ultimately crack. You see the signs of this flex early on with the evidence of gear oil leaking from the diff cover seal.
Without resorting to a replacement cover made entirely of steel or iron, BilletFlow designed the steel brace offered here. Installation is straightforward using the supplied grade 8 hardware, and BilletFlow even thoughtfully included a hole to permit easy access to the differential fill plug without the need to remove the brace.
I've done the majority of my aftermarket mustang parts shopping at American muscle, recently finding out about this website I'd just like to say it is a great experience to shop here, the lay out is easy and simple to navigate, and you have thousands of parts that no other website has. The shipping is very fast and all te updates are great. I will be doin much more shopping with y'all, so thanks for being so badass haha
