Wanting to stiffen up your S197 chassis but still want to retain your rear seats? Pick up this 2005-2014 Mustang rear chassis X brace by Steeda! This brace mounts to the rear shock towers instead of the sheet metal behind the rear seats for a more secure install. By using this method, the brace is more effective and distributes the loads between the rear shocks, springs, and chassis. This results in better chassis deflection reduction and improved suspension performance. With this kit, you can keep your rear seats to avoid having to obtain a rear seat delete.
Steeda is out with another great product. This brace really ties the rear end together, making the car feel much more 'put together.' Install took about an hour with the bolt-in method. Being 6'4" tall, it was a bit of a squeeze to get into the back seat where I could get to the nuts on the back of the top bolts. I recommend an 18mm box end wrench with the nuts taped into the box end. This allowed me to slide the wrench up into the hole and then ratchet the bolts much easier from the trunk side.

I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
