Product Install Instructions

Chassis flex is one of the main enemies of good handling. Your front tires can't stay planted if your CD4 Fusion front strut towers are flexing. Put an end to front-end flex with this easy-to-install tubular strut bar. This bar ties your strut towers together giving you less flex and therefore better handling. Made from super strong 4130 Chrome Moly steel the brace comes powdercoated matte black with a wrinkle finish.

Fits; CD4 Ford Fusion 2013,2014,2015,2016,2017,2018

Product Benefits

  • Better handling with more stable cornering
  • Excellent bang-for-the-buck suspension piece
  • Will actually improve the ride of your vehicle

Note: This Strut Tower Brace will also fit the 2015 Ford Fusion Energi Titanium.

Noticeable difference
2017 Fusion AWD - Tightened up the front end, can feel the tires stick to the road on hard turns. Actually helped with ride quality for the driver, less vibration into the steering wheel. Makes steering a tad stiffer, but no complaints. I see that as a plus.

Excellent part easy install
The strut tower brace is a good addition to my 2015 Fusion 2.0L. The car corners much better with hardly any body roll in the front any more. The part fit like a glove and took 3 mins. to install with hand tools. Steeda my hat is off to you guys on every part I have bought and installed from you. Thanks for the upgrades.

Excellent Upgrade
I have to agree with one of the previous reviewers, it took me longer getting the bar out of the box and unwrapped than it did to install. Felt immediate improvement in steering/handling. Excellent, quick and easy mod. Highly recommended.

So I admit I was skeptical around buying a single piece of steel that was supposedly going to fix the roll of a 3,400 lb car. I have driven my car 70k miles so far and have had it since new. For the last 30k miles, the body rolls more than a deep ocean buoy. In 10 minutes and thanks to Steeda, it's like a new car. Felt it immediately. There is no harshness to the ride. It's firmer, but more of the road is soaked up into the suspension and tires. It's 10 times more comfortable in my opinion. It's crazy good. Buy it. Buy it now.

Fusion strut tower brace
I received this as a Christmas present and could not be happier. You immediately could feel the difference in the firmness of the car. It eliminated the flexing of the front end and feel like I can drive into corners faster and harder. It feels much firmer but no loss in the ride quality. It's another terrific product from Steeda and looks like it's a factory piece. The rear sway bar is next. Thanks John

'16 Fusion 2.5 Strut Tower Brace - A plus+++
Steeda Strut Tower Brace was an easy install on our '16 Fusion 2.5. Nice improvement of the car's slight body flex, gave more stability and firmer handling in corners and curves to give that planted feel to a decently riding car to start with. Thanks Steeda!

Noticed an immediate improvement
Easy bolt on. Took 10 minutes maybe. Fit was perfect. Nice touch giving heavier duty chromed bolts with the bar to finish the look. Noticed an immediate improvement even with my winter tires still on the car. Handling became crisper. Confidence to through into the corners more aggressively is definitely available.. Thanks to Jigar Patel and Steeda for getting me taken care of quickly and hassle free.

It honestly does make a big difference.
It honestly does make a big difference. I don't drive the car daily but the few times I've driven it with and without the brace, you could feel it immediately. Everything stiffens up quite a lot. You end up with a less comfortable but more confident ride is the best way I could describe it. Good quality brace too. Thick and heavy.

Easy install
real easy to install. However I would not recommend torquing the bolts over thirty-five foot pounds. Accidentally sheared one and had to take care of that (My bad not Steeda's)

I gave this a 3/5 due to its fit and finish. Let me start this by stating that I have always used and stood behind Steeda's solutions as I think they are very quality pieces, I just feel they missed that mark on this piece and either hurried it or I possibly got an incorrectly built piece... This brace does not sit flush with the strut towers across the entire area of where the bar mounts meet the towers? Also, where the cross bar is welded to the base plate, is not fully touching the strut tower? I would post up pictures but there isn't an option... How can this be the best design when half of where the cross bar puts pressure on the strut tower is not in contact with the actual strut tower? Also, there should either be washers to accompany the bolts or the holes should be narrower. When the bolts are lightly tightened the powder coating cracks and flakes off. The powder coating on my 2006 fusion was solid and could take some abuse, this one can't even take the bolts being slightly tightened without ruining the coating. In the end does the STB work, yes… Do I think they could have done a better job, yes… Will I continue to purchase Steeda parts, absolutely!

Noticeable improvement!
Just installed this strut tower brace, can't think of one bad thing to say! The fit and finish was spot on. Took all but 10mins to install. Took it for a test drive and wow! Very noticeable front end improvement! Very tight and spirited handling. I also ordered the rear sway bar to complete the package!

Well noticed
I recently began upgrading my Ford Fusion SE. It began with appearance and no I am stepping up performance mods. The Steeda strut tower bar was painted to match prior to installation and actually appears factory and the improvement is well noticed. Thanks to the design team at Steeda!

Very pleased
I was pleased with the strut tower brace from Steeda. The finish matched the other factory matte black components, so it looks like it came from the factory with it. Ultra easy to install with no modifications required to my 2013 Fusion 1.6T. Sharper turn into corners. First upgrade item chosen. Thanks Steeda for quality components, designed for the vehicle.

Amazingly simple upgrade that works!
I purchased this and the rear sway bar for my 2014 Fusion SE with 18" wheels, and installed this first because it was easiest and to see if it really made a difference or not. It made a huge difference. My car had felt like it was running on 15" skinny wheels prior to installing the tower strut brace. There was heavy body lean and the tires just didn't seem to grip. Most of that is now gone. Cornering is amazing, and even driving on uneven roads or over bumps / potholes (slow or fast) are far more controlled now. The body roll is not as bad, and mostly felt when I'm pushing the car (such as making slalom like movements on the road to test for body roll). My guess is that most of that will disappear once I install the rear sway bar. This is how the car should have handled from the factory. I'm completely satisfied. And, the quality is great and it looks good once installed. Highly recommended!

Great upgrade
This is a brilliant addition to the Fusion, especially considering the price and ease of installation. I can definitely feel the added rigidity in the front end when going around cloverleafs and even weaving through parking lots. I'd highly recommend it.

Great addition
I also reviewed the "'13-'14 Fusion rear sway bar," so I'll keep this short--coupled with said sway bar, the entire ride just feels awesome. Stiffer all around, but I don't get beat up on crappy roads. Excellent part, great ride quality, and I definitely feel like I have more connection with the road...sort of like a skilled fencer and his/her foil. Bottom line, if you have an 2.0 EcoBoost Fusion, and like to drive "spiritedly" at times, this tower brace and the rear sway bar will be a very worthwhile investment in your ride. Keep rockin' in, Steeda, I'll be back! -AD

Great product
I went from a 2013 Fusion Titanium AWD to a 2014 and installed this strut tower brace and the steeda springs before I drove the car and they made a huge difference in the way this car drives. Can hit corners quicker now with less noise from the front tires. This is comparing my 2013 with factory 235/40-19 tires to the new 2014 with my 205/65-16 winter wheels/tires. Front end also dips much less while braking.

Fits 13' Hybrid Too
I've used strut tower braces in older Mustangs and Focus' with great results. I inquired with Steeda whether this item will also fit my Hybrid. Rodney checked with the engineers who looked at CAD drawings and confirmed that indeed this brace will fit the Hybrid too. Shortening the story, it took more time to find the 10mm socket than it did to install this brace. Front end feels stiffer when cornering and the tires seem to complain less. I also have Steeda's upgraded rear sway bar with urethane bushings. The car is much more fun with these items aboard. Looking forward to other upgrades for this vehicle - maybe urethane bushings for the front sway bar?
