When it comes to ensuring stability at speed, extra bracing and support is always beneficial and this goes for the performance in the 2011-2014 Mustang chassis as well. Under the hood, the use of strut bracing will help your car handle and corner smoother while also adding some performance-oriented flair when you pop your hood open around others. This upgrade can be beneficial for anyone who drives their car quickly on and off the street by stiffening up the front end of the car, making it tighter than ever before. With this, you can confidently take corners at a higher speed.
The front strut bar is designed to tie the front end together and brace across the engine which helps keep the front end from flexing under heavy g-forces. These braces help keep the car in line when cornering and helps stabilize the car at higher speeds, ensuring better front-end traction. Many S197 Mustangs come with bracing from the factory when they are new n order to better perform when being driven on road courses or back roads as many enthusiasts do. With the addition of one of these strut tower braces, your Mustang will be able to corner more smoothly.
Here at Steeda, we have been modifying, racing, and upgrading the Mustang platform for over 30 years and in that time we have seen which types of parts are beneficial in modifying your Mustang’s handling. These upgrades are incredibly useful when paired with other handling upgrades like the rear sway bar upgrades help stabilize your car, eliminating extra vibrations and tying the car’s points together for extra rigidity. We run these parts on nearly every car we build as well as every car we own to ensure quality and to stand by our promise for better performance.
