This SR performance strut tower brace has a tubular design that does an excellent job of reducing chassis flex and body roll without creating a harsh feeling in your suspension. It gives the car a more connected feeling instead of pushing or floating. It's also constructed from an aircraft grade Chromoly steel tubing and it's power coated black, which means it'll look great under the hood and give you daily driver cars protection from the elements.

It just does a really great job of tying all of these components together. Now installing this should take you about a half-hour or less. And it fits perfectly over the factory intake manifold without any issues.

Why would this not fit a 2011 v6?


  • Looking through the customer pictures of the SR Performance Black Strut Tower Brace I have seen a lot of people who put them on their V6 mustangs. We just can not confirm fitment from the manufacturer.

Does this shock tower put more strain on the 2 inside bolts than the 4 bolt tower will?


  • The SR Performance Black Strut Tower Brace will have a little more strain on the inside bolts as this would be where this strut tower brace attaches to and does not use all four.

Will this fit 05-09 Saleen Supercharger models? Pics of other braces show them going under the SC as there is a large gap under it for strut tower bars to feed thru and mount without interference. Can you verify if this is possible with this one or maybe another model you have? Thanks in advance.


  • The SR Performance Black Strut Tower Brace is not compatible with the Saleen Supercharger. At this time we do not offer a strut tower brace that would clear this supercharger.

    Strut Tower Brace

    I installed this brace last week and drove my 08 GT through the Texas Hill Country, and I have to say - I had a blast! This brace really stiffened up the front end. I also noticed that under 90 mph, the hood shake was less pronounced. This brace might not have all of the "flash" that the other ones have, but it does the exact same thing the 200.00 ones do... And ofcourse, American Muscle came through like always. I probably spent a total of 3500.00 dollars on this website - and it was worth it. I WON"T buy parts for my Mustang anywhere else but here!

    strut tower brace fits over plenum cover if you add a few washers, but be carefull when driving hard, the brace will rub on the cover just enough to leave marks on the cover. I took the cover off, there must be a brace that will clear the cover without such a tight fit.

    Great deal

    Bolted right up, tight fit, excellent look and craftsmenship. It tightens up the front end and makes the steering feel firm on bumps. Great suspension add-on for the price, now need to find good emblem for chrome center section

    I put a suspension kit on my stang before I bought the brace. I thought the brace would make the suspension feel more harsh. Not so ! The brace makes the front shocks feel like they are actually doing some work and absorbing the bumps better. This is a great product for the price and installs in 5 minutes. If I had to do it over I'd install the strut tower brace before doing a suspension kit. The diference is almost unbeliveable.

    beware of fitment

    Overall, quality of paint and fitment isn't bad. The central chrome piece on the black bar is a little cheesy, but does offer a good place to put some sort of logo. Feel less bumpsteer in car now. Bar WILL NOT clear factory plenum cover on GT models without modification. Either remove cover and replace with bolts above cover, or prepare to have lots of 5/16 inch washers as shims, to cheapen the entire engine compartment look.

    V-6 install

    I had read someones review of putting this on their 05 4 liter without mention of any problems, so I went ahead and ordered it. Got it mounted mounted and realised lack of clearance between it and intake manifold., also made strange noises when driving it. Really liked product and didn't want to send it back. So with a little creative use of washers and carefull grinding of intake manifold all is well. Nicely made and the price can't be beat . Just thought I would give a heads up on anyone with a 6 that it wasn't really designrd with us in mind, as it seems most things are not. Shopping at American is always a good experience.

    Doesn't fit plenum cover

    The brace itself is nice. The coating and material felt high quality. But be warned, if you have an 05-09 GT with the plenum cover, this brace WILL fit but barely, when you tighten it down even with washers it presses down on top of the plenum cover. After seeing this I returned the product and ordered one with more clearance. I do not recommend this product to anyone with a plenum cover.

    Fit 2013 V6 perfectly

    I took a chance and purchase this brace based on another customers review. I can confirm that it fits a 2013 V6 perfectly. No issues with space or rubbing against the motor. Pictures uploaded. The grabber blue dirty V :-) Car feels good and a little more stiffer. Not much but a little.

    This "least expensive" option worked just fine

    I have a 2006 GT convertible which I just bought with 62 k miles on it. It has been partially re-skinned and has a noticeable rattle from the disassembly & reassembly of the drivers side door. I obsessed over which strut tower brace to buy. I decided on this one because it is the least expensive. I was worried about potential fit problems with a "four bolt per side" brace. I figured that, since the Boss 302 & Steeda braces are only two bolts per side, I'd be okay. No clearance problems at all with the stock manifold. No shims needed. Pretty tight fit with the metal A/C plumbing near drivers side firewall. The difference is astounding. Much less rattle and vibration. I now realize how much cowl shake I used to have. Car feels more solid and planted. Even that darn door rattle is reduced. If you have a convertible, you must get a strut tower brace & this least expensive model is well-made, good looking, and EXTREMELY functional!

    Product looks good however if you take it off a few times the paint will start to peal away at the bolt site. Flake not just get worn down. Also This brace will not fit over the Ford Racing Intake

    fits the 3.7 perfectly.

    item arrived 2 days after ordering, dropped in place in minutes! PLENTY of clearance with the 3.7 intake to get your hand in there for cleaning. i sprayed mine to match my car with duplicator spray cans. the car feels a bit tighter now when taking turns at speed, but that maybe just knowing it is there? i plan on doing more chassis bracing and suspension upgrades in the future, this part was my first step!

    Fits 3.7 v6

    This brace fit my 2014 v6 perfectly, looks like it was designed for it. Best bang for the buck handling upgrade that I have made. Adding a strut tower brace really improved steering feel and makes turn in sharper and more precise. Car stays on line better in rough corners. A strut tower brace should have been standard on all Mustangs.

    Did more than expected

    Thought this would stiffen the chassis, and improve chassis life... And it did/probably does. What I didn't expect was the increased power delivery. Because it keeps the front squared, both front tires remain planted, which has noticeably increased torque on the back tires. Before my tires would slip if I hit 3000 rpm off the line, but now my tires can lose traction in 2nd as well. Obviously I need stickier tires, but it's a noticeable torque difference. Before installing, my mustang would pull hard left off the line. After install, that problem disappeared.

    Totally worth it

    First off, I thought this was fitted for all models. My bad. When I laid it on, it made contact with the manifold. But, as others have said, a couple of washers on each bolt and it fits perfect. The improvement in handling, particularly body roll at low speeds, is really noticeable. definitely worth the price.

    Bar doesn't clear the plenum cover even with two shim washers. Can't use until I can figure out how to extend the strut bolts.
