    Features & Details

    • Adds Strength and Durability
    • Stamped Steel Lower Reinforcement Plates
    • Welding Required
    • Fits 1979 to 1995 Ford Mustangs
    Strengthen Your Chassis. The "Torque box" is the point where the upper and lower control arms attach to the chassis and after years of hard driving and punishing drag racing this area becomes weak and starts to crack. So reinforce your Mustangs lower torque boxes with a set of Competition Engineering Plates for increased durability and strength.

    Application. These Competition Engineering Torque Box Reinforcement Plates are designed to fit the 1979 to 1995 Ford Mustangs.

    Technical Note. These Torque Box Reinforcement Plates must be welded into place.

      Directions say to pull the rear axle but I didn't, these are weld in and do require some bending to fit. Make sure you put these on before the subframe tie in!

      Every little bit helps

      Already installed torque box reinforcements before welding in subframe connectors oh well these plates on and then the subframes and then it's going to be a roll cage so every little bit helps because this car is going to launch hard

      Nice produc for restauration

      This is a very nice think to buy if you dont want to broke your tracktion box. If you do a lot of burnout you need it.

      Good product

      The torque boxes are good. Really needed if you plan on doing mods. Fit good and i recommend you do the subframe connectors at the same time as these, as well as control arms since you'll be in there anyway.

      About what I expected

      Had to do some trimming for a good clean fit but glad I installed these before my frame ties. The torque boxes are thin from the factory so this helped stiffen them right up have to wait till spring for anymore testing.

      Must have if you drag or compete

      Simply a must have if you drag race or compete, these plates will add significant reinforcement to where your car feels the brunt of the punishment torque puts on your car. Comes well packaged and is about an hour labor at competent shop.

      cheap insurancwe j

      Product fit well and looked good once welded into place. No performance gain but does give a piece of mind when you drop the clutch that the control arm will stay in place.

      A must with Subframe Connectors

      I bought this the same time as the subframe connectors and I am glad I did! If you don't put these on first you will have to weld onto thin sheet metal instead of this think gauge! It brings all the thin corners together to make a real solid foundation.

      cheap mod

      I added these plates with the intention of later installing torque box reinforcements to really strengthen the torque box area. The plates fit good and are a good price.

      Makes the lower torque boxes like new again!

      These were a must for my stang. The torque boxes had multiple cracks from years of abuse and these made them like new. Easy install as long as you can weld. Also they come wrapped in a coated paper to prevent corrosion which kept them ready for welding right out of the package. Just remember to put a coat of paint or undercoating on them to prevent rust after they are installed.

      Great Product

      Think steel plates, precision cut fit, overall nice part. Only downside is if you do not have a welder you're going to need to get them professionally installed.
