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.
Just a quick note to say what great people (Eddie Davis) are at Latemodel Restoration. I ordered and bought a set of Track Pack Wheels for my 2014 Mustang GT.Their prices and service is the BEST in the MUSTANG INDUSTRY, not only the price and service but the honesty. The wheels came thru with the wrong center caps one call to Eddie Davis corrected the situation in one phone call and the next day I had the center caps (FORD RACING) the correct ones no BS, they just did the Right Thing,whereas in this Day and Age you don't here that often. LATEMODEL RESTORATION is the only place for your Mustangs parts and equipment, trust me try them and you will see what I mean!!
