    Prevents Cracks and Damage. The Mustangs factory upper radiator brackets have a very stiff rigid design that can actually damage an OEM or aftermarket radiator leading to cracks and leaks under hard driving conditions. Replacing your factory brackets with a new set of Mishimoto brackets will prevent this damage and prolong the life of your radiator.

    Designed To Be Flexible. Mishimoto Mustang Upper Radiator Brackets are made in the U.S.A. out of 0.050" thick 5053 anodized aluminum and feature a soft rubber bushing, allowing the bracket more flexibility preventing costly damage to the radiator.

    Application. These Mishimoto Aluminum Upper Radiator Brackets are specifically designed to replace the OEM Upper Radiator Brackets in the 1997 to 2004 Ford Mustang and work with both OEM and aftermarket radiators.

    Mishimoto's "No Questions Asked" Limited Lifetime Warranty

            Upper Radiator Brackets

            They aren't nearly as stiff as original but that is what is needed more flexibility. They fit great.

            you need these mounts....

            This aluminum mount installed easy with my new radiator. If you are installing one of the all-aluminum 3 or 4 row racing radiators in your SN95 Mustang, you need these mounts! If you try to use the rigid FORD factory mounts, it will hold your new radiator too tightly and in the case of chassis-flex, it will cause the radiator to break the welds. Why spend $300 plus on a new radiator and not spend $25 on new proper mounts? Cheap insurance!

            good product.

            Worked for me. The aluminum looks out of place in my engine bay. A bit pricey. When I purchase my car the own ones were missing so I can't compare the two.

            Flimsy is apparently the selling point.

            I bought these to install an aftermarket radiator. The stock brackets are rigid steel with no flex to accommodate variances in thickness or mounting tolerances, and the rubber bushing is tight in its mounting hole. These brackets hold the rubber bushings (included) very loosely to allow for minor variations in mounting the new radiator. Additionally, the thin aluminum of the new brackets is easily flexed to gain any further adjustment that may be required.

            Light Weight and Strong

            Perfect fit and look great. I would highly recommend these and get rid of the rusty hold downs and dry rotted rubber isolators.

            This product works really well and fits better than factory supports. I recommend you buy this product along with the radiator

            Looks Good

            I used these radiator brackets under the chrome covers that are also available to help dress up under the hood.

            These work, Period.

            When my OEM Radiator for my 03 Cobra failed, I got a mishimoto radiator with the independent stabilizer system that is designed to prevent damage to the radiator by chassis flex. However, I wasn't going to put my full hope on the stabilizer system alone. I needed to give these brackets out a try. I LOVE THEM! I know by a fact they are working because whenever I pop my hood and try to move and twist the radiator from where the brackets are, it moves semi-freely allowing that movement to prevent damage should chassis flexing occur. Perfect for peace of mind plus they are lighter than the solid OEM brackets which in my opinion any weight taken off the front end can't hurt the car at all : )

            Fast install, great flexibility

            These were easy and straight forward to install. Remove the radiator cover, remove two bolts, and pop off the old ones. I feel confident driving the car and that the radiator can flex and not be stressed with the stock mounts. Also these are a lot lighter, which is weight savings, even if it isn't a k member or battery swap. i recommend this item, and even with the cover off, they have a great shine to them.

            Great Fit

            Bought a new radiator and these fit the new Core Support and new radiator just fine, If you are looking to dress up your engine bay or just replacing stock ones. these are the ones you should buy, look great and fit perfect

            Very flexible

            My car is salvaged and the radiator core does not align well with the stock brackets. With the flexibility of these they fit well onto the hole where the bolt is supposed to go. Definetly recommended for those that have cars like mine.

            Good in theory but fitment seems off

            The brackets would be perfect for keeping the radiator stable while preventing cracking. However with the radiator itself (Mishimoto 3 row) being off center these nor the factory brackets align up right. Even with the radiator sitting in the correct holes it is still off center and makes he brackets twist. Not the brackets fault. Mainly something with the radiator.
