Product Reviews

This strut brace does two things well! Adds a nice touch to the engine compartment. The black powder coating with the chrome Steeda plate installed really makes the engine bay look great. But more importantly to me, it helps with the handling and turn in of the front end. I really like the way it has returned road feel to the steering. I now know exactly what the tires are doing! Before, I would occasionally catch the electric power steering "unprepared". No longer. I had family members drive the Mustang at a Fourth of July picnic and they all commented on how well it handles. Nice piece and job Steeda!!!

This is my third install of a strut "tower" brace on one of my cars. Just like the other two, I noticed the extra firmness pulling away from my house. It also add so "road feel" back that the electric power steering has removed, I also have mine set at sport on my 2012 V6. The car tracks beautifully on just about any of the New Hampshire roads I tested it on. The two reasons it got 4 stars are;1. I had to guess at the torque settings for the bolts. I set my torque wrench to 30 ft-lbs.
2. The Steeda "insert" is very cheesy looking.
A good investment other wise.

Installed in ten minutes and looks great. Best part: a tremendous improvement in ride quality, reduction in chassis vibrations felt through the steering wheel, and I also noticed a lessening of body roll in aggressive cornering and emergency avoidance swerves. Bang for the buck? Huge, and I'd expect nothing less from Steeda.

I bought the stage 3 suspension pack worried that the only part that wouldn't fit would be the shock tower brace over the top of my Kenne Bell supercharger. To my suprise it fits with plenty of room to spare. It looks awsome. Especially with the polished Steeda nameplate. I can't vouch for other blowers but for all you out there running around with one like mine, go ahead and get the brace......IT FITS!!!!!!!!

I purchased this as a father's day gift for my Dad and we installed it on his '05 GT convertible. Very, very simple 10 minute installation. This product does add some front end stiffness and reduces body roll in heavy cornering.
It also looks great in the engine bay and is a very nice visual upgrade.

The strongest and best looking brace out there. Fits great and looks good!Definetly helped stiffen up the front end of my convertible.

THIS IS A GREAT UPGRADE PART FOR MY '06 MUSTANG GT. THE DOUBLE BAR STRUT TOWER IN THE BLACK FINISH LOOKS GREAT AND IS CONSTRUCTED WELL W/ GOOD CLEAN WELDS. IT IT WELL WORTH THE PRICE!
