    Reduce Body Flex. Excessive body flex is a known issue on the older Foxbody platform, that is why BBK Performance designed this Strut Tower Brace specifically for the 5.0L Mustangs to reduce that unwanted body flex for a tighter controlled driving feel. This BBK strut tower brace is a "must have" for all Foxbody Mustang owners.

    Superior Quality. Manufactured from tubular steel for superior strength, this Mustang strut tower brace is completed in a bright chrome finish for durability, corrosion resistance and good looks.

    Simple Bolt-on Installation. The BBK Strut Tower Brace is a simple bolt-on that clears the factory intake manifold and is easily installed with just basic hand tools.

    Application. This BBK Performance Strut Tower Brace is designed to fit the 1986 to 1993 Mustangs equipped with the 5.0L V8 engine, including the LX 5.0, GT and SVT Cobra models.

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

    • The BBK Strut Tower Brace will have clearance for a tubular GT40 intake manifold, however there will not be adequate clearance for any intake spacers to be used.

    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.

      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.

      Strut brace

      It's a Christmas gift, I don't know how my son likes it yet. But it had a quick delivery time.

      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.
