Description
Improves Handling. Reinforce your rear strut towers and improve your Mustang's handling with a Steeda rear shock tower brace. By adding a rear shock tower brace, you'll reinforce your Mustang's chassis and improve traction for better, faster, crisper handling.

Made to Perform. Like all of Steeda's products, this shock tower brace is made to the highest standards to guarantee performance. Constructed of 4130 chromoly steel and finished with a durable zinc plate, this brace gives your trunk area a no-nonsense look.

Perfect with Coilovers. If you're adding coilovers, high performance shocks, or an IRS rear to your Pony, a shock tower brace will help you get the most from your new suspension.

Application. This brace is designed to fit all 79-04 Mustangs including V6, GT, Cobra, Mach 1, and Bullitt models. Note that some modifications may be required for installation.

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.

Will this rear shock brace make a difference to me? I own a 2000 GT 4.6 convertible; I have already installed a front tower brace, an Eibach roll bar kit and new shocks. These have made a big differencein regard to handling...both strauight line and in cornering. Is the addition of the rear tower brace a bit of overkill or will I feel a difference in handling so that the cost/install is worth the effort?

Palamino1 Year: 2000 Model: GT

  • It is not overkill if you are a driver that pushes a car to the limit. Especially since you have a convertible, the body has a lot of flex. Since you have tightened up the front you have put more strain on the rear. A tower bar on the rear is really a good thing to balance out the suspension.

What extra hardware will I need? Does it use the existing bolts, or will I have to drill and place new ones in?

TholomewPlague Year: 2004 Model: GT

  • existing shock bolts are fine. There is no extra hardware required for this kit.

    steeda rear shock tower brac

    The rear shock brace definitely improves stiffness on the rear of the chassis, much much better handling, no flex. I recommend anyone to get this item. I didn't have to weld anything i drilled 3 holes on each shock tower and just made sure it cleared the shocks and bolted some bolts on there, it took a couple of hours but it was easy.

    No more tail wag

    Super easy install, definitely reduced the tail wag. Only took about 15 minutes to install. Didn't weld in, and I can still tell a difference.

    Good for the money

    This is a good cheap way to enhance your rides handling as well as give it a trick custom look. I definitely recommend this to any one who's on a budget and still wants to do small mods to their car.

    REAR SHOCK TOWER BRACE

    THIS PROCUCT IS A VERY NICE SET UP WITH THE FRONT STRUT TOWER BRACE. I COULD REALLY TELL A DIFFERENCE WHEN CORNERING AND JUST THE OVERALL FLEX OF THE VEHICLE. MY CAR IS ALOT TIGHTER AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW NICE IT WILL BE WHEN I PUT MY NEW LOWERING SPRINGS IN.
