Description
Reduce Body Flex. A Steeda Rear Chassis X-Brace is a great and easy way to increase the chassis rigidity of your S197 Mustang to eliminate power robbing body flex and to improve handling performance.

Retains Rear Seats. Unlike other rear x-braces on the market today the Steeda Chassis X-Brace does not require removal of the rear seats for installation allowing you to still seat four passengers.

Quality Construction. Manufactured from 4130 chromoly steel for superior strength, this Steeda X-brace is completed in a black powder coated finish for impressive looks.

Bolt-in Design. The Steeda Rear Chassis X-Brace bolts into location using existing stock factory mounting points with no cutting or modifications required for a straight forward installation. Can be welded into place if desired for additional strength.

Application. This Steeda Rear Chassis X-Brace is designed to fit 2005 to 2014 Mustang Coupes, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models. Does not fit convertibles or vehicles equipped with Shaker/Mach 1000 stereo systems.

Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Details

Steeda Rear Chassis X-Brace

This is a very quality manufactured part. Install is a breeze, I didn't have to use a jack to install it like the directions say. I can definitely tell there's a difference in the way the car handled prior ...

will amps mounted to back of rear seats interfere with this? I have an AMP mounted on the back of each rear seat, am i correct to assume there will be an issue with installing this product?

  • Unless you're tracking this car all the time this upgrade is not for you. You actually want some flex back there. Yes your amps would interfere with this. If you're mainly on the street I would recommend the rear shock tower brace if you feel you need bracing back there.

will rear shock tower brace work with this? could this be used in addition to the steeda rear shock tower brace?

NickB818 Year: 2011 Model: GT

  • Not without modification of the products - bad move to willingly void product liability....Besides, There isn't a need for the addition or use of the shock tower brace when using the Chassis X-Brace. However they both work well - one better than the other. The Steeda Chassis X-Brace attaches to the shocks and shares impact with the rear pan; and the x-y moments of deflection at the top of shock, to include impact are absorbed by the cross chassis bulkhead panel (top attachment) quite well. In the end you have a choice - pick one.... stiff , stiffer with design tolerance of shock bushing movement intact. X-Brace is definitely more ridged.

Which would be give a stiffer suspension this X-Brace, or a rear strut tower brace in combination with a Seat removal* X-Brace

    X marks the rigid spot

    I was pleasantly surprised when I received this brace. I did not expect it to be so heavy duty and still very light in weight.With this and the front strut tower brace, my stang handles like a whole different machine, like its on rails. Thanks AM, you did it again, quality products at a fair price!!

    Steeda X-Brace

    Awesome x-brace. Retain back seat, retain most usuable trunk space, increase handling, super look, and relatively easy install. (Tight work space in trunk, but no jack needed. Feel right into place.) Considering all this, why wouldn't you...

    quiets some chassis noise.

    It arrived well packaged with detailed instructions. Took me about 1.5 hours to install. I would recommend using a 1/2 inch drill bit instead of the recommended 7/16. Once I took it out for a test drive I immediately noticed I difference in chassis stiffness. Be prepared to lose some trunk space, however.

    As always with Steeda

    This is a well made part and performs as expected when it comes to Steeda parts. However, you are going to need an air impact to tighten up the top shock mounts. Even with an electric impact, I was not able to get both snug and tight...just keeps spinning the shock stud around and around. Anyhow, with an air impact, this is a one hour job..tops!

    Looking for Perfection

    The Steeda Rear ChassisX-Brace balances and distributes the stresses induced by each of the shocks through-out the rear of the chassis. Once you view the installation the lightbulb will flash for you. Engineered perfection! And, if you're serious about occasional road course adventures, this bolt-on X-Brace will surely impress you. Best of all you'll maintain the option of keeping your rear seats functional and intact. I believe you can expect longer than normal longevity from all components attached to this X-Brace. Feel and hear the difference.
