    "Speaker: The SR Performance Strut Tower Brace in black will be a great choice for the non-performance pack SF50GT and Ecoboost owners out there who are after an affordable strut tower option and don't wanna mess with the cal extension that does come along with the Ford performance option which is priced in the same ballpark. On the other hand, if you do have one of those performance-pack cars and you just simply wanna switch up the look of that factory brace, that would be a great option for you as well. Now speaking of price, this will land you just south of 200 bucks in regard to total investment and will get a simple one of three wrenches on the difficulty meter from me when it does come time to talk about the installation. So a strut tower brace is one of those easy and affordable ways to make a subtle impact on your handling helping to stiffen up the front end slightly, take some of the roll out of the car when cornering very hard. Now I do say subtle because in the grand spectrum of handling parts, I would argue that there are gonna be other mods out there that will make a bigger impact to your handling performance, such as your sway bars, your springs, or even tires. But 99% of the time a strut tower brace like this will be very affordable, along with being extremely easy to install, both of which apply to the SR option here. Now traditionally, SR is going to be one of your more budget-friendly or value-friendly brands here on the site, and sure that is the case with this particular strut tower brace, but that doesn't mean the construction or quality has suffered at all. In fact, that is quite the opposite. SR has incorporated aircraft-grade 41-30 Chromoly steel for the overall construction here, in addition to using one inch tubular parallel beam design. They have also incorporated mild steel plating to the bottom portion of the brace itself, this part right here, guys. And that's just to further help reduce any flex before finishing everything off in this textured matte black powder coat, which I personally think flows under the hood of the S550 rather well. Now, this is a great time to point out guys that SR does offer the same exact brace but in a brightly polished finish for the owners out there who might prefer a little bit more flash under the hood. You can find that on the site, it'll cost you a little bit more than the black option we have here. Now another question I see on the site concerning the SR performance brace here is that will this thing fit my 2015 V6 Mustang? And unfortunately, it will not, at least as it sits right now, and that's just due to the intake manifold on these cars sitting a little bit higher than the GT or the Ecoboost as 550 cars. Now, sure it might be possible to add additional spacing or spacers underneath this thing that clearl the intake manifold, but the moral of the story is, again, as it sits right now, this product will not fit the 2015 and new V6 Mustang. But let's quickly touch on the installation with the SR option, and as I mentioned earlier guys, this one is pretty much as straightforward as they come. So expect a rather simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here. Maybe 30 minutes of your time to get this bar in place. Two lines well, if you have a socket set, you're gonna be able to install this thing. First off, you're gonna wanna pump that hood and remove the battery cover trim panel that gives access to the necessary studs. At this point, you can remove the four nuts off of the upper strut mount studs. Now, SR does include a few spacers that will be used. However, guys, the number of spacers that will be used will differ depending on whether or not your car is a performance pack model, so just make sure you reference those included instructions to determine how many spacers you need for your application. With the spacers in place, set the SR strut tower brace on the studs, tighten down the four included nuts and your installation is complete. So to wrap this one up guys, if you're looking for a no-nonsense, affordable strut tower brace option to help you tighten up the front end a little bit and add some under hood appearance. You'll wanna check out the SR performance option in black right here at americanmuscle.com."

        Adding weight to the front of my ecoboost mustang is a small concern. What is the weight of this strut tower brace? I'm considering the aluminum gt350R brace because of this .

        • The SR Performance Strut Tower Brace will weigh in at 11 lbs.

        Does this fit RHD models?

        • We have not tested the SR Performance Strut Tower Brace on any RHD models, as we only have access to LHD models in the US. We do expect this to fit RHD models, however we are unable to confirm if they will due to a lack of test vehicles at our location.

        This seems odd to me, it say this fits a GT and and Ecoboost...why not a V6? Why aren't any of these made for V6's. How exactly would this not fit a V6, seems to me if it fits an ecoboost, it should also fit a V6. I simply want it for appearance, not function.

            Easy install and great look

            Installing the bar was fairly straightforward. No modifications needed to be done but the battery cable had to be pulled fairly hard to go over the bar (and wouldn't fit under it). Great looking entry level bar for the S550.

            This easily beats having no strut bar, definitely tightened up my steering and it took maybe 20 minutes if that to install.

            SR Performance Review

            The SR Performance strut tower brace was packed very nicely. Everything was nicely packaged and was not loose sliding around. The instructions was very informative and the brace fit perfectly. It's a great addition for anyone who wants to add some flare and stiffness under the hood. Its very heavy duty and very well built. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a strut tower brace. And it's under 100 buck to boot. Best bang for the buck in my book.

            You get what you pay for

            This is one of the cheaper strut tower braces so I can’t complain too much here. Overall, for the cost it’s great. Shipping speediness by AM was right on as usual. Regarding fit, finish, and function; it fit perfectly, the finish is excellent, and I can definitely feel my front end stiffen up a bit. There are 2 specific turns near my house where I notice the biggest differences. 1 is a freeway entrance where I usually start sliding a bit if I take it too fast. I take this turn every morning before work (even faster than before) and it doesn’t slide at all. The other is a freeway exit where it’s a sharp turn with a bump in the middle of the turn, the bump steer can be quite violent. I still experience bump steer but it’s minimal in comparison. It rebounds much quicker due to the additional stiffness. Here is why I didn’t give it 5 stars. I ordered a black powder coated product for a reason, it would have been great if they would have included black or black chrome nuts. The chrome sticks out like a soar thumb. The instructions pointed out how critical it is use the correct nuts on the correct studs so you don’t cross thread the studs which is great but mine were labeled backwards. Luckily I figured it out right away. Finally they tell you to tighten all nuts at 35ft/lbs. Well 2 out of 4 of them on each side are for the upper strut mount nuts. These should be at 46ft/lbs according to everything I can find. Make sure you use some loctite, as these will come loose very quickly.

            2 locking nuts do not fit

            Handling is much improved with this strut brace. Easy to install, less than 30 minutes. Only problem is that the lower locking nuts tighten way before they reach the bottom about an inch away. You will need to supply 2 different nuts to tighten properly.

            Easy install, looks great. The blank space in the middle of this strut tower brace allows for some customization. I had "5.0" badge laying around that I was able to attach and add a little bit of flair.

            Took 15 minutes to install only because I had to disconnect battery cover and terminal for fitment but it was worth it. Noticeable difference on turns. Much more stable now.

            Strut Tower Brace

            It was easy to install. Seems to be a well built brace. I did have to modify my strut tower caps quite a bit so they would fit. If I would have known that, I doubt I would have gotten this particular brace (even though I think it is a good brace at a good price).

            All Around Great Product!

            This strut tower brace is high quality, fit perfectly, and only took about 15 minutes to install! The front end on my '15 Ecoboost Performance Pack car is more settled in the corners after installing the brace. In addition, even with this brace in place, there is still good access to the dipstick, and oil fill hole. I also changed spark plugs after I installed the brace. Had to wiggle the engine cove out from under, and back in place, but could still do it. For the spark plugs themselves, I just had to use different length socket extensions to get to the plugs. Great product at an amazing price!
