  • Some but not all Mustang Coupes from 2007-2012 may have this brace already installed from the factory. Unfortunately, it's not a cut and dry split so we encourage everyone to check their Mustang prior to purchasing to eliminate ordering something you don't need. Hope this helps!

    Super easy installation and improved support up front.

    I was looking to stiffen up the front of my 2007 Mustang GT and the Ford Racing lower control arm brace helped. This brace comes stock on 2007 - 2009 Shelby's. I installed the brace with my front wheels up on ramps. The brace installs with the threaded studs facing towards the rear of the car. Torque the nuts to 46 ft-lbs and you're done! I also installed a BMR strut tower brace for added stiffness. Great overall improvements.

    This LCA bar takes about 10 minutes to install & you probably dont even need jack stands. It stiffens up the front by bolting to the k-member right behind the a-arms. A more noticeable difference with a Strut Tower Brace installed over it on the top of the struts to really tighten up your front suspension. All in all only 100 bucks so very affordable and definitely lives up to its claims

    Product was cake install

    It took literally 10 minutes to install this brace. The holes are already in the car where this brace needs to mount, so it is just holding the piece there and screwing on the 4 nuts. Car feels a bit stiffer in the front end, though due to bad weather, haven't been able to really get on it. But I can certainly see how it would help the suspension.

    Inexpensive improvement

    The LCA brace gives the front end a more solid feel, definitely noticeable improvement. Every S197 should have it. 10 minute install!

    This is a great addition

    I didn't think that adding this brace would do much, I also thought that it could not hurt either. Amazingly, this brace was the "missing" final piece of the suspension/chassis upgrades I have done to my car. It compliments the strut tower brace nicely, allowing the front suspension and tires to be more effective. I would now call adding this brace an absolute "no-brainer" if you are taking the time to replace or upgrade the other parts of your suspension. Install is very easy, takes less than 10 minutes once you have access to the underside of the vehicle. A deep socket or ratcheting box wrench makes it almost too easy.

    Easy installation and decent gains

    The installation was very simple. Took my all of 15 min to do. I took it for a test drive after and noticed a slight bump in front end stiffness but nothing crazy. For the money it's just a nice little piece to help tie your suspension together.

    Great combo'd with a strut tower brace

    This bar really helped out with the overall feeling of the car. It's much tighter, turns are sharper and more confident, and it even feels like body roll was reduced a bit.

    Lower Control arm brace

    Great product stiffens the front up and it was easy to install just take the bolts off and slip it through the holes that are already there and then put the bolts back on it really is that easy. I would highly recommend this product.

    Stiffen up your front end.

    This product does what is says. If you're looking to stiffen up your front end you can't go wrong with this product. I had to replace my Front Lower Control Arms so I went with the FR Lower Control Arms and I figured for $50 I'd thow this on too. Couldn't be happier with the results.

    My 2005 did not have the bolt holes for this brace

    So unfortunately my 2005 GT does not have the brace holes like the newer cars do, so I was not able to install this. I am sending it back and installing the Steeda G-Trac brace instead. American Muscle has been excellent in the return process though. I emailed them about the issue and they quickly responded back with an RMA to return the product for a refund.
