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.

Note: This Strut Tower Brace will also fit the 2015 Ford Fusion Energi Titanium and the 2017+ Fusion Sport.

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

Steeda's Strut Tower Brace for the 13-14 Fusion is easy to install. Follow along and see how easy it is. On the left and right strut towers are 2 exposed bolts. Remove them and set them aside for use during this installation. Set the strut tower brace into place and line up the bolt holes. Start all 4 bolts by hand. Tighten all 4 bolts to a snug fit and you're done. With Steeda's precise engineering and attention to detail, this part not only improves handling but looks great as well.

great for 4's. Not for sports
loved this on my 13 se. Took it off to put on my new (to me) 17 sport and it won't work. Hits the brake reservoir.

Worth it
Super easy install and makes a big difference. Keeps front wheels planted on the ground, definitely worth it.

Instant difference
When I installed the strut tower bar I instantly felt the front wheels be significantly more planted and the car now takes turns with confidence. The fit and finish of product was factory quality and would highly recommend to anyone starting out. Very easy to install the comments saying it took longer to take it out of the box is not an exaggeration very easy and very worth it!

Hit the apex
As I saw the 5 star reviews for this strut brace before I bought it I first thought, aha paid testimonials, not ! I’ll repeat what others have said “ it should be an OEM item”. The Steeda item is the single best item in my opinion you could put on your Fusion and noticed better day in and day out handing. Im not looking to make a modified vision of my 2019 se with sport package but will now head to the larger sway bars to really plant this car. Bigger feel improvement to handling than the cold air intake did to power.

Money Well Spent
Some of the reviews for this part already mention some of the things I'm going to list, but they are all worth noting. I have a 2014 Ford Fusion Titanium with the turbo 4 and front wheel drive. I was somewhat impressed with the handling of the car when I first bought it in 2016. But coming from a Mazda 6 S, the Fusion drove like a well set up big car and not the sporty sedan that I was used to. Now, after over 60,000 miles of driving, the car started to feel a little heavier in the corners. While the suspension was still good, I wanted something to make the car feel more nimble for those rare occasions where I really get a chance to toss it around corners. Having had a good experience with the Steeda CAI on my Fusion, I decided to pick up the strut tower brace. I'll start with the bad: - As mentioned in other reviews, it does make the steering a little heavier. However, I don't mind the change and my wife doesn't have any problems with the small amount of additional effort it takes to turn the steering wheel. - I had a little bit of an issue with one of the new threaded bolts during installation. When trying to screw in one of the new bolts, I couldn't get it to start and ended up messing up the thread and rendered the new bolt unusable. Now the good: - Definitely feels better planted in the corners. There is still some body roll, but with a car of this size it is expected. - Car has more grip around corners, even on wet pavement. - On rough or uneven pavement, the car feels less like it wants to pull to the side of the worst of the road surfaces. Some reviews have mentioned that the car can be less stable on rough pavement, but I have not observed that. - Other than the issue I had with one bolt (which could very well have been my fault), installation was a breeze. It too me longer to find my freaking 10mm socket than the whole install took. You really don't need to be mechanically inclined to install this, all you need to be able to do is turn a wrench. Overall, I am highly satisfied with the product, the speed of delivery, and the ease of installation. Steeda has made another quality product that works exactly as advertised and is fairly priced for what you get.

Steeda did it again with another perfect product. Not only was it easy to install, the change in the car is very noticeable. Steering is more responsive, corners are flatter, and confidence is much higher. I did already have the Steeda jack rails on my car. Should one come before the other? That's up to you but in combination it's a perfect match. The Steeda sway bars are next!

Great upgrade
I installed the STB on my 2017 Lincoln MKZ. Although it's the mechanical twin of the Fusion, I quickly discovered that the bracket for the lower end of the hood lift strut was in the way. Not a big deal, I got a 10mm ball stud from AutoZone and tapped the end of the STB. Problem solved.

Precise Steering
Helped cleanup steering of my Fusion. Not that I push it, Energi Hybrid, but it is a noticeable improvement!

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)
