Product Description

Add some needed stiffness to the front of your 05-14 Mustang with a strut tower brace from LatemodelRestoration.com.Mustangs have been notorious for having front end chassis flex and this strut tower brace is a quick and easy way to strengthen them back up.

These strut tower braces simply bolt on to the front shock towers of your Mustang. This helps to strengthen the front chassis, eliminates suspension flex, and reduces cowl shake which means less wasted horsepower and more grip for your 'stang!

Easy 15-minute bolt on installation.

Will not fit vehicles with factory plenum cover or GT500.

5 Stars   It Does The Job
By on 9/13/2013
I just received and installed this brace on my '12 V6. While it may not be as pretty as some of the other braces around, it does what it's supposed to. I could feel a difference backing out of my driveway with it's huge curb-cut: the steering wheel didn't jerk. The other big differences I noticed are the improved steering response, especially in higher speed curves such as freeway exit ramps, & I can almost tell you the type of paint used on newly-striped intersections and how many coats were used...pretty amazing for a mere 60 bucks!

5 Stars   Best Upgrade for Your $!!!
By on 2/12/2015
I bought this thinking that it'll do for now until I get a better one because honestly, it doesn't dress your engine bay, but after installation installation, I instantly felt the difference. I've had other ones before on my 87-5.0L my 96-4.6L and though pretty, they were always bulky, heavy and no one really commented on it anyway. This one is light with strong welds and definitely stiffened my handling. It doesn't look bad either. For my 2013 V6 Pony, it was perfect. I want to keep it as light as possible.

4 Stars   Quick Install, Good Fit

Image uploaded by Gil M. Easy installation, a bit tight with the Kenny Bell supercharger. I added a 3/8 spacer under the brace after the photograph. I run Nitto 305 drag radials during the summer and with MUCH better traction I'm not sure how much motor rock will cause interference under hard acceleration. In the dry with 255's no problem. I'll put some witness clay under the brace with the drag radials installed to make sure there isn't a problem...

5 Stars   Just What I Needed
By on 2/15/2015
Recently undertook a complete overhaul of my 05 S197's suspension, and this was part #1. I wasn't looking for flash, or pizzaz under the hood...just function, and this simple part performed perfectly.
Before I had even replaced anything else, this was bolted on, and test drive around the block performed. All I can say is "WOW!" What a difference one simple part can make! The entire front end of the car suddenly felt completely buttoned up, and much more responsive. If you don't have one for your pony, don't wait, just order one now. You'll be happy you did.
As always, shipping from LMR was fast, and the price is always right.
I will add, that a small corner of the brace was slightly bent upon arrival, but that was such an easy fix, I'm not going to bother dinging a star from the review for that.
Keep it up LMR!

5 Stars   Great value

Image uploaded by Stephen M For $60 this strut tower brace gets the job done, it doesn't look as good as some of the more expensive ones, but still looks pretty clean. It does make a difference by making the steering and front end feel stiffer but I wouldn't spend any more than $60 for one.

Image uploaded by salvatore g. When I first bought my car it did not have a strut bar, after grabbing a wrench undoing 4 nuts I installed the bar and mins later I did a few test runs around my block and could feel a much sturdier car! Great easy improvement for my 2012 v6 suspension
