    Hi, I just installed the Steeda struts with the Steeda heavy duty strut mounts. The studs on the Steeda strut mounts are bigger than stock. Are the holes in the brace big enough to fit the bigger studs.

    • The Steeda Strut Tower Brace utilizes holes in that will have adequate clearance for stock or steeda strut mount/camber plate studs.

    Will this work with a 2014 GT, not C6?

    • This Steeda Strut Tower Brace is designed to fit the 2005 to 2014 Mustang V6s only and will not work with the GT models. We do have the Ford brace which is similar to the Steeda one and will fit your car.

    Will this fit on or over a 4.0 X-charger and under a stock hood

    • Unfortunately we have not tested the Steeda Strut Tower Brace (05-14 V6) with the X-Charger for the 4.0 V6 Mustang. By taking a look at some of the customer photos I see some customers were able to make this work with bigger intake manifolds and other applications. This brace may work for you but I cannot guarantee it.

      Steeda tower brace

      Fits great, doesn't rub the intake. stabilizes the rear end. I have a 2006 base Mustang with no rear sway bar, rear end was sloppy, now it holds tight.

      !!!!Will fit BOSS Manifold on 5.0!!!!

      Bought this with the hope that it would clear the Boss Intake Manifold on my 2013 GT, and it fits perfect! easy install no clearance issue, and looks much better than the factory Boss Brace.

      A perfect fit

      I had purchased a similar looking brace, which was much cheaper, but did not fit. This one was a bit pricier, but fit so perfectly that even I was able to install it easily, with one socket wrench, in about 15 minutes. It definitely stiffens up the front half of the car. A great deal, and a certain upgrade for any mustangs out there...

      Steeda Strut Tower Brace V6

      This brace fits great. I had bought another brand from another site that was made for a gt. That brace rubbed a plug and the top of my air intake. This brace does not rub at all.

      The Steeda Strut Bar

      It's been a very nice product. It's kept the body from rolling too much it helps a lot. It's also a little nice look under the hood.

      Steeda Strut Tower Brace

      Well made product with good quality finish. One bolt hole had to be elongated to make it fit. Easy modification to improve handling. Installed it on a 2012 Mustang which did handle better but the improvement wasn't as noticeable as the 05-09 models since the front suspension has been improved. Still a good value compared to other handling upgrades.

      Well made part, easy install

      This could not have been an easier or quicker install, maybe ten minutes including putting the tools away. Under very hard cornering, the nose feels a little better planted than before, but in everyday driving it's not a night and day difference. The fit and finish is very good, and it makes the engine bay look "complete" with the hood open.

      Incredibly easy to install and works great

      Installation was so easy and fast. The strut tower nuts came off and on easy with some PB Blaster. The bar went right on (had a lot of problems with brothers '08 Focus and Steeda bar). Immediately noticed a difference around street corners and down the interstate.

      Surprising improvement

      I really didn't expect much improvement with the strut tower brace but was pleasantly surprised to feel the diffference. First let me explain I haven't installed my after-market sway bars yet. I've installed Eibach Pro lowering springs and Tokico D-Spec adjustable struts/shocks and yes I can really feel the difference, not huge but noticeable. I imagine if I would have waited until after I installed my new Eibach F+R sway bars, I might not have been able to notice as much. That project is for the weekend, I did this in about 30 minutes after work. The holes line up perfect and no need to go out and buy or scrounge up some washers because the holes are the right size. It was litterally take 4 nuts off, put strut brace on, put 4 nuts on and done. The extra time was to install the little decorative "Steeda" plate on the top of the bar and clean off some goo that was on it. The other nice thing is it complements the engine compartment perfectly! It doesn't look like some gaudy over the top piece that wasn't supposed to be there, it looks like it should have been there. One thing, the instructions had a mention for 2010+ Mustangs to do something with a canister mount. My 2010 V6 Premium Pony package automatic didn't have that so I just ignored it. The hood shuts very easy. I was worried about there being binding or how much pressure I'd have to apply to get the hood to go down. At the same time, the struts provide great lift. BYE BYE Prop bar! As always finding the part on American Muscle was super easy and the selection is great, I love the web site, I always come here first. Shipping was super fast, 1 day for me living pretty close.

      Super easy to install - Looks bad - great feel

      Steeda rules so the look is killer. Handling somewhat better but you wont feel night and day after installing it. Couldnt be easier to put the brace on. Glad I got it and recommend it to anyone!

      Shipped and Arrived quickly. Noticed that it corners better and feels different than before. It does fit V6 models fine, its a bit close to the intake manifold but clears just fine.

      Could go either way

      If you're thinking of purchasing this part solely for performance and chassis stiffening, don't. You can use this money for something that will do the job better (control arms, sway bars, etc.) However, if you want something to dress up the engine a little bit and is actually functional, this is a good quality part that won't disappoint. American Muscle is also top-notch with their customer service, shipping, and product condition.
