        Will this work with carbureted cars?

        Will this fit with a go 40 tube style manifold with a 1 inch spacer?

        Is this bar “solid”? Or is it hollow? The current one I have is hollow and I can bend it without max effort.

        • The BBK Strut Tower Brace will be tubular steel, as will all of the other strut tower braces we offer.

            BBK Strut Tower

            The BBK strut tower was nice finish to my build. Not only was it stylish but also increased handleing of the car. I recommend this product to any one looking for car handleing and style.

            Product misrepresented in photo...

            This item has no BBK badging or markings of any kind. I bought it to match up with other BBK under hood items that I have, only to find that this product had no badging of any kind. Also the bars had some slight yellowing of Chrome or discoloration in different areas on the brace. American Muscle was good in paying the return shipping, and taking the item back for refund though...

            Makes a difference

            I have an 88 GT Convertible. Already with suspension goodies along with Crate engine, I'm down to the small details of my Mustang. So I was looking into what else can make my car ride better. I started reading up on strut tower braces. So I ordered, installed, and was finally able to take a good drive to see what a difference it made. I'm happy to say, I made a good purchase. Before, I still had body roll with Ford Racing springs and KYB struts all the way around. It's MUCH better now. If you have a convertible, this is a must have. Can't speak for the other Mustangs. The reason for only 4 stars. Yes, install was mostly easy. But not as easy as it says in the description. If you take your time and double check the locations you need to drill, it won't be a problem. Thank you American Muscle for another good buy.

            Perfect Suspension Upgrade

            The BBK strut tower brace does exactly what it is designed to do. It made my 1991 Notchback LX handle like it was literally on rails. I can now take tight corners with ease. It takes the side roll feeling out of cornering. Great product. Highly Recommend. It looks awesome under the hood too.
