    New Weld In Shock Tower Reinforcement for the 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang

    New pair of weld in shock tower reinforcement plates cut from 11 gauge steel (1/8") for the Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang. It is common knowledge that one of the main design flaws of the early Cougar or Mustang are the shock towers. Because of this design flaw, it is common (even with pampered, low mile, completely stock cream puffs) for the shock towers to have some degree of cracking as they were never designed to fit an oversized wheel and tire package, be cornered hard or handle the heavy weight or high torque of a big block. Many attempt to offset this front end flex by replacing the two shock tower braces with an export brace. While this does greatly improve the rigidity of the front end, it does not address the flex that occurs in the center portion of the shock tower where cracks typically tend to form. These braces triangulate the towers with the rest of the chassis to add much needed strength where it is needed most, the mounting points of the upper arms. Because of the headaches cracked shock towers can cause (as well as a significant hit in your car's value), we consider these units to be one of the best single investments you can make for your Cat or Pony.

    These reinforcing plates are easy to install and fit at an angle on the inside lower portion of your shock towers. Even if you do not regularly corner your Cougar or Mustang hard, they will keep the shock towers from cracking on your increasingly valuable vehicle. When you combine these units with our reinforced lower crossmember and one piece export brace, you will not only have a much better handling car, but you will also have a cheap insurance policy for your shock towers as they are very unlikely to ever crack. They are an especially good investment for you 69-70 convertible owners out there too! To learn more, read the BOSS 302 Chassis Modification book we have listed in our manual section

    I am extremely satisfied with the weld in plates for the shock towers for a 67. The fit and material were excellent. This was an easy task as I already had all the front suspension removed for replacement.

    Pros:
    • Great fit
