Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with and I’m checking out a nice little gadget that’s sure to save a few lower chin spoilers, front air dams and even front bumpers thanks to this parking assist sensor for all model Mustangs. We’ve all been there, pulling into a new place or parking lot only to not notice those evil little concrete parking blocks resulting in a not so nice scratch on that front end. Well with this kit those incidents become a thing of the past. The sensor mounts on the front bumper or like we do with our 2011 GT here, under the front bumper, and by using advanced infrared technology it audibly warns you when your front chin spoiler is getting a little too close for comfort. Well, we can talk about this all day but the only way to get a true sense of how this product actually works is to put it to the test. Hey guys were out here in the parking lot of AmericanMuscle headquarters putting our parking assist sensor to the test to see if it works. *Beep* *Beep* *Beep*, Alright you aren’t missing that another spoiler saved thanks to this kit. The kit includes an infrared sensor itself and waterproof housing, an alarm, and also a control box. The install is made very straight forward thanks to the detailed instructions and thanks to the fact that there is no drilling required for this kit what-so-ever, all you have to do is run a few wires and find a place to locate the sensor after that its basic power and ground installation that should take you no longer than an hour, when you factor in time to calibrate the kit. Calibrating your new kit is very easy, all you need is a cardboard box that your kit came in to be placed in front of your vehicle at the desired location you would like the alarm to sound, once you have done that simply adjust your sensor while holding the button on the calibration box until you start to hear the beep, once you have that done you are all set and ready to go. So if you’ve been on the losing end of some of those parking lot battles and you’re tired of scraping up your ride you’ll definitely enjoy the extra protection from this parking assist sensor.

Avoid Curb Rash. The SpeedForm Front End Parking Assist Sensor is perfect for lowered Mustangs (or new drivers) to warn of a potential front end curb impact with an audible alarm. Making curb rash a thing of the past.

Modern Electronics. Using advanced infra-red triangulation technology and specialized embedded software you can adjust the SpeedForm Front End Parking Assist Sensor warning distance from 8" to 28" (bumper to curb). Designed to power-up automatically on vehicle ignition, the Front End Parking Assist Sensor won't drain your battery.

Straight Forward Installation. The SpeedForm Front End Parking Assist Sensor does not require any drilling for installation and can be easily removed from your Mustang with no after-marks. Kit includes sensor with weatherproof housing, sensor calibration procedures, all wiring, wire ties, user guide and installation directions.

Application. The SpeedForm Front End Parking Assist Sensor will fit any year or model of Ford Mustang, including the LX, V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, SVT Cobra and Shelby GT500 models.

What kind of range does this thing have . I'm not talking about distance but rather height or width, like for instance another car or a back garage wall? Of course the height range is the one that interests me most.


  • How this Sensor works: 1] It has a very narrow horizontal band (left to right) for detection of an object. Only straight ahead; like another car, wall or curb. 2] Sensor's ability to send a signal and wait its return is probably limited to perhaps 3'. 3] It can not detect or effectively detect narrow vertical objects such as a light pole. 4] Where you mount it determines its "field-of-view" of a target. If its mounted on the bottom of your car (front or back) it will detect a curb or any wide object depending upon the Sensor's angle but not safely beyond 3'. If its mounted (Example) on the front edge of your hood as a reference, it will detect a car's rear end or a wall if its within 3' or less. 5] False feedback signals seem common; such as a sudden glare reflection. Random alerts seem problematic. 6] Keep the Sensor clean or false signals will be common.

Wall detection? I'm wondering if this sensor would only detect curbs, or would it also detect walls just fine? I was planning to use it for reverse parking since it was mentioned that it would also work on the back end.


  • We carry a Rear Bumper Parking Assist Sensor specifically designed for reverse parking. I've included the link below for you so you can check it out.

Would these work for the rear end as well?


  • Hi Jonlucas, Yes it would work. The thing to remember is are you pulling up to curbs etc ... like the front end? I thought about the same safty aspects but then realized that the corners are potentially the most nicked up for me in the rear I then found multi sensor kits to cover the corners, for me the $ was a little hard to swallow. I then realized a camera was the way to go for me. You'll need to examine your needs & go the rout that serves you best. Hope this helps. H.T.

Would this work on a 2016 mustang?


  • The SpeedForm Front End Parking Assist Sensor will work on any year Mustang, including your 2016.

In the instructions it says to connect to constant power. Normally I would wire a device like this to a switched source. Is there any concern about power drain with this being connected to a constant power source? Is it not drawing current all the time? Yes it would be small, but if my car sits for a week or so will it start? Why does it need power all the time? Would it not still worked if it was switched?


Where is the firewall entry gland located? The installation instructions/pictures suck and are not very descriptive at all.


  • The firewall entry gland will be located closer to the driver's side towards the bottom on the fire wall. The Customer Submitted Guide may be more useful for the installation of the Front End Parking Assist Sensor. This customer used a grommet that is located on the firewall above the pedals in order to feed the wire into the cabin. I will supply the link for their guide below!

    Great peace of mind

    Installed this a few weeks ago and it's a great system. I only ran the speaker in the cab of the car and hooked the module up to the battery and mounted the module next to the fuse box under the hood of our '12 GT. I ran the speaker with across the firewall and into the foil rap around the sound tube area. Doing it this way was really easy. To hide the speaker wire I in cased it with 1/8th wire loom so you don't even know its there. One word of caution. Our car is not used in the winter and the battery is on a battery maintainer all the time. If you have your car on one of these maintainers you'll want to put Mini switch on the curb alert ground with and turn it off when attaching the maintainer because the curb alert will not turn it's self off hooked up to the maintainer because it still sees battery voltage. Love this curb alert!

    front end sensor works great

    install took 30 mins easy to do. came with everything you need . so far everything working the way it should. you do have to clean the sensor if it gets to dirty. so far on reg roads in the rain it has worked fine. would work better if it had 2 front sensors for off center parking curbs. will not pick up curb if it is not dead in front of the sensor.

    A little front bumper insurance

    The curb alert was easy to install on my car. I opted to put it under the air opening, and not under the lowest part of my Roush fascia. I think if you put it under the lowest point of the bumper and did accidentally scrub while going through a dip you would break it and/or lose it. I would recommend trying to find a place that absolutely will not get hit. Adjusting the sensor was a little tricky, or so I thought. I adjusted it as recommended and I thought, "there is no way this is going to work", but it did. It always stops me before I grind the curb.

    An Alert for Dummies

    The bottom of my front fascia looks like I drove the car in a trash collection facility. Very form of minor damage can be seen; so I decided to purchase the Curb Alert and install it prior to having the car's fascia finish restored. Works like a charm for Curbs but will not detect vertical sign posts probably because they are too thin. Mine is set to alert me when I am 10" from the Curb. For Dummies like me, this product will probably pay for itself.

    Needed a little help to calibrate

    Don't know what I missed in the calibration directions, but I had to contact Curb Alert for help. Thankfully, Bill got right back to me. His instructions (below) were all the help I needed. The sensor has to be aimed at an object to calibrate the distance alert. Suggest you place a larger box in front of the sensor and then press the red calibration button (I did this with the car running). You should then hear two beeps or a constant tone (but the sensor has to be aimed at an object to reflect the signal). You have just calibrated the distance. (now I turn off the car). Then allow the car to sit for 10 minutes with the engine off. (now I turn on the car again). Then adjust the sensor angle until you hear the distance alert when you slide the box forward toward the front of the car into your set alert distance. These notes (plus my comments) worked perfectly. Thank you Bill!! My install was a 2011 GT. The mount was below the license plate toward the back. The path through the firewall is along-side the sound tube. I used the spare connector in the center console (referred to as the convertible plug) and I plugged into the white wire with the blue line (which is on when the engine is running). Thanks again Bill!

    Great Product

    I purchased this product as soon as I purchased a new chin spoiler as I thought they would go well together. This product works great! The sensor was easy to calibrate and it beeps quite loudly when I pull near a curb (loud enough to hear over music). The only downside is that the instructions are poor quality. Also, one other thing I would change for anyone else who buys this- I would connect the sensor to an ignition-controlled power line that way the sensor turns off when you turn off the car. Otherwise the sensor will continue to beep even after the car is turned off for 20 minutes (it shuts off after that).

    This sensor alert was really simple to install on my Shelby GT 500. Took a little while to plan out the routing of the wires and just how to hide them all in a professional manner but after approx 2 hours it was done and it works great. Nice not having to cringe everytime I pull into a parking space.

    Poor Build Qualiy

    I purchased 1 of these in 2014 for my front end. My car is a daily driver so I wanted to make sure I didnt hit curbs all the time. However after 2-2.5 years the system began making continuous rapid beeping sounds. This eventually stopped and the unit no longer functioned due to cracked solder joints on the usb receptacle. I removed the unit and purchased a new one since the old one was good to me for that short time. However, upon receipt of the new one today which I promptly installed and calibrated, no shorter than 1 hour later this unit too no longer makes any noise and does not respond. In troubleshooting, I checked that the unit was receiving power, via opening the case and placing a volt meter on the exposed parts of the power wires, all was good. I then had a friend walk in front of the sensor and recorded a voltage change from the sensor to the board in the usb connector. I then tested the audio jack, and found nothing. Even when my there was voltage to the sensor the jack produced nothing. I then wiggled the audio plug in the jack and got beeping, but only at a certain angle. After attempting to secure the audio jack in that position only, the unit now does absolutely nothing, and I cant even get 1 peep. Upon inspection the prongs in the audio jack are so flimsy, im surprised they can even hold in the plug let along conduct electricity. Therefore, if you are considering purchasing this unit, take care. You may get 2 years or 1 hour of functionality and be out 3 hundred dollars all because the quality of the connectors on this unit are sub par.

    good product

    This product works well but was a little time consuming to install on my 2006 mustang GT. You have to remove the passenger side inner fender well to access the grommet to feed the wires through. My intent was to connect to a ignition wire but ended up connecting directly to the battery after consulting with the manufacturer. Calibrating was easy. It works well now. Sometimes it will beep when going in or out of sons inclined driveways.

    No More Carbon Fiber Disasters

    Ok it's a little hard to hear, but with the stereo off there is no doubt. But it works and I wish I would have bought this alarm 4, yes 4, spoilers ago. I had it professionally installed as my tech Ken at CarCrafters in Albuquerque told me that he was gonna quit installing spoilers on my GT 500 unless I did. It has gone off once going through a considerable dip but it for sure reminds me when road surfaces are dangerous to my chin spoiler. It's not irritating, it's a good thing! Buy it!

    Curb rash be gone!

    Product parts, including instructions received in timely fashion. Location instructions not ideal however after reviewing on-line instruction plus other sites, determined a location that works well for my particular front end. Adhesive sticks when you follow directions, align carefully. Calibrating unit is accurately outlined in instructions, so read and follow. Just push the red button after completing both the distance and height calibrations. Designed a mounting plate that bolted to the right tower that I adhered the control module to. Took less than two hours to install and calibrate, but was methodical. Overall, a cost effective and positive auditory warning system I hear every time I get within the 20inches of a hazard!
