    Normal Stock Item - Next Business Day

    Scott Drake used the original Ford prints to makes these exactly as the originals with heavier gauge steel than the other reproductions we have seen. Unlike the reproductions of the past, these actually fit without the need for modification or the need to jump on the front of the car to install. They are the best braces on the market today by far... Greatly reduces twisting of the chassis. Also strengthens the front end and helps reduce shock tower fatigue and cracking. Also available in Chrome and Satin Chrome Finish. Does not come with hardware.



    Replaces Ford Part # C5ZZ-16A052.



    *TRIVIA* These are called "Export Braces" because all Mustangs and Cougars exported to Europe were required to have them. They were standard issue on all Shelby's and an over the counter item for Cougars and Mustangs not equipped from the factory with them.

    4.00 out of 5
    Pros:
    • price and fit
    Cons:
    After watching the video and reading all reviews I decided to take a chance and buy this since you can't beat the price! I may never see the benefit of reduced roll while cornering, since that's not my driving style, but I often go with Don's recommendations if he says it's an improvement.

    Apparently I have no issues with my shock towers, since the brace actually fit without much "persuading". Be aware that you need to remove the shock tower covers since the new brace is a complete circle using all 3 mounting studs instead of the original open style that only uses 2 studs. I lined up the 4 cowl bolt holes first by using screwdrivers to keep the bracket and cowl holes aligned while I worked on the shock tower mounts. It helps to know that the mounting studs can be moved a bit to allow alignment into the brace mounting holes at both shock towers.

    With just a little effort all fasteners were installed without any major issues, so Don is right that the brace is not the problem if it doesn't fit, it's your car. I just got lucky that my car had no issues with the shock towers, otherwise I can see how this would be a struggle to get everything aligned.

    Good product, very sturdy and well-made, excellent value for the price!

    Pros:
    • Stiffens up the chassis.
    Cons:
    • Sharp edges
    Edges of the metal are too sharp. They should knock them down prior to paint.
