  • It appears that you can but some modification maybe necessary. See Travis' photo here: http://3.cdn.customerpics.americanmuscle.com/image/sku-16250/68723-steeda-seatdelete-xbrace-0513coupe.jpg

    This is great for handling and chassis fanatics

    Installing this takes about 10 minutes with the proper tools. You will need to re-use a few bolts, however the install is extremely simple. The bottom part of the seat comes out easily, no bolts. The upper portion is bolted, and that's where the need for tools comes in. It's a few T-50 Torx bolts So, beyond that....what is it like? OK - to start. I have a 2007 GT with lots of bracing in the suspension and chassis already, with urethane bushings and motor mounts, etc. I was needing a way to tie the parcel shelf (and the upper part of the rear wheel wells) in the back to the rest of the body, and this fits the bill perfectly. It's a great price, and if you're serious about handling, this is a great way to tie the inside together in back. The biggest improvement I noticed was in corners going uphill. The look is amazing as well. You can mount items to it with screws. While I have not done anything yet, I have some ideas. Now - there are draw backs to this. Noise is one. You will hear everything the seat blocked - and that is quite a bit. if you're planning on using this in a daily driver, you will seriously want to think about sound dampening. Items in your trunk will be items in your center console if they are small enough and the brakes are applied hard enough at speed. You can't fold this down either.

    SOOOOO MUCH SMOOTHER....

    Upon installing this wonderfully designed peice of excellance, i was abit doubtful of how this would affect my handling (i thought this because this part was designed sooooooo well that it literally just fell into place and was natrually aligned with the holes) however...flying through corners and diviing into hairpins became much more friendly with this brace installed, now that both sides of my rear end are tied together, to both react with eachother in unison, making it much easier, friendlier, and refined. i love this product and i would buy it a thousand times over, i would even go as far as paying more for it

    Slick, great looking bolt-in install

    This is a great handling upgrade to compliment other handling upgrades on your Mustang. It's not going to be a huge seat of the pants feeling if it's done alone. Tied all in together with a strut tower brace, suspension mods, and whatever else you are doing, it's really going to bring everything home. It is quite a vacant hole to fill after removing the rear seats, and while the body is quite a bit better than some older Mustang's I've had, this does tighten up most of the body flex and roll, especially once you start putting the grip to the road. The rear seats are fairly easy to remove on newer Mustang's, which is really nice. Bolting this in is simple, though you will need quite a large T50 torque bit to get the seats out and the brace in. That's about all there is to it. The part oozes quality, looks great and has a nice plate to mount a fire extinguisher or whatever else you'd like to put on it. As for weight, the brace still weighs less than the removal of the rear seats so you'll still be a few pounds ahead. Yes, road noise is more apparent, especially with a loud exhaust, but that's why we drive Mustangs :)

    Thanks AM!

    My 2012 GT's main role is road racing and since the "X" brace from Ford Racing came out, I really wanted to add strength in the back but could not justify the price. Steeda's brace is well made, I had no issues to install it with my delete seat and has the right price. I welcome the added rigidity and the quiet rattle free support!

    This product improved handle.

    No more sloppy body roll feeling from the rear of the car. It installs really quick if you already have the back seats out. It does not fit with the rear seat delete kit, but after minor modification to the bottom part of the kit, it looks really good. It was a great addition if you run canyons and everyday driving on the roads. No noise comes from it at all.
