Improves Handling Performance. Improve your Mustang's handling performance by reinforcing your rear shock towers with a SR Performance rear shock tower brace. A SR rear shock tower brace will stiffen your Mustang's chassis to reduce suspension flex and improve traction for impressive corner carving handling.

Superior Construction. The SR Performance Mustang Rear Shock Tower Brace is made from heavy duty tubular steel to keep your rear end from flexing under g-load and is completed in a textured black powder coated finish for aggressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

Application. The SR Performance Rear Shock Tower Brace is designed to fit all 1979 to 2004 Mustangs, including the LX, V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, and SVT Cobra models. Technical Notes. Some modifications and welding may be required for installation. 1979-1993 hatch back will require light trimming of factory inner quarter panel sight plugs over rear shocks. All other models will require trimming of factory inner trunk liner.

Fitment: 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 Details

    SR performance rear shock tower brace 79-04

    I am not happy with this product it's supposed to be a simple bolt in and it does not fit it's a 1/2" to short so I have to figure out a way to lengthen it in order to make it fit properly between shock towers I would send it back but it got scratched trying to get it to fit.

    Review from SR Performance Rear Shock Tower Brace - Chrome (79-04 All)

    This product worked great.

    I bought my first Mustang, a 99 GT and found that the car already had quite a few suspension mods already done. It had lowering springs and weld on frame rail connectors and has 275/40/17 tires on 17x9 cobra wheels. Car handled great but i noticed that in a real tight turn at higher rates of speed there was a lot of upper body flex. Installed the SR performance rear shock tower brace and took care of the body flex in the rear. I can't wait to get the front brace installed to see how much better its going to get. Love what the MOD did to the cars handling.

    Review from SR Performance Rear Shock Tower Brace - Chrome (79-04 All)

    SR performance rear tower brace

    its too short for a 2003 mach1, photos are uploaded, the brace is approx 1/4 in short on both sides to meet up with the shock housing, if this is normal and accepted then its still short, no way can this be welded except with an extra piece of metal to fill the gap. love you AM, but this is the last sr performance part i will regret to order., if i am wrong, ok, but see my pics then you decide if you want this part, its too short. remeasure.

    The SR PERFORMANCE REAR SHOCK TOWER BRACE - CHROME is a nice add on to your stang especially Chrome so it could stand out in any events. I didn't feel that much of a difference on the rear tower brace.

    03 Cobra

    Fits very well. Took about 20 minutes to install (while taking my time). However, I don't know if it actually helps any without being welded in place. I can move it around a bit with my hands even with bolts torqued down. May be best to weld.

    Right on!

    I own a convertible so I need as much bracing as I can find. This fits perfectly on the rear shock towers and stays hidden behind the trunk matting. This does not interfere with my trunk space or when I lower the rag top. I do notice the different and compliments the other bracing that I added prior to this one.

    nice addition!!

    This was easy to install and looks great in the trunk. Won't be able to test the handling until I get the car back out this spring after the roads are no longer snow covered to check out the handling improvement..

    Nice quality piece

    I installed this in under an hour , I don't know if it makes a difference yet , but I figure any extra bracing on a convertible can't hurt . It certainly feels sturdy and I can rock the car back and forth by grabbing the brace .

    Rear Tower Brace

    This is a pretty cheap and simple product to install and use to help tighten up your rear. To realize the full benefits, weld it in. While you will not notice much difference in normal driving, this piece helps keep your rear planted under hard cornering.

    Sr performance rear shock tower brace

    I did not see a huge difference when installing on my 2000 3.8l mustang. It does eliminate some body roll in corners. It fit great went right in. And wasn't a bad price. I would recommend it and am hoping when I get the front strut tower brace I will notice even better results.

    Good Product, good price

    Improved stability and reduced convertible squeaks and rattles. Installation took about 30 minutes. I had to trim both trunk side covers and the front trunk cover. No fitment issues but it took a bit of effort to get it fully seated on the shock bushings. Plan to weld it in this winter.

    2001 Mustang GT

    I bought this while it was on sale this month, I got it in the mail and it looked good. The next morning I decided to install it and followed the directions and it took about 1 hr. In the picture it was flush around the frame and strut but on my car it was not flush on the frame. I had a half an inch gap on both sides and took it out. It did help a little but it did not fit well, would be nice if it fit correctly..

    Took me a while to install by myself but once you get it it's easy sailing. Only had it on for a day and I already feel less body roll and it's pretty low profile in the trunk. Got it on sale so I'm happy.
