Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scott Drake strut tower brace I bought this item a month ago and I am particularly pleased. The stability and the car's steering precision are enhanced. The item is very well done. It is positioned perfectly, everything is perfect. The only problem for France is the $108 paid in addition to customs fees. When CJ Pony Parts store in Europe !!!

will this fit a 2015 gt with the moroso air/oil separater?

Asked by: wynem
We do not currently offer the Moroso Air/Oil Separator so we have not tested that fitment and the vendor has not made any special note regarding it.

Will this part fit my 2017 Australian Mustang GT

What does this weight? And how does that compare to stock (steel one)? The Ford aluminum version (GT350R) is 12.5 lbs lighter than the steel version (GT). This looks beefier which is good but lighter is good too.

Asked by: Hoosier Daddy
We did not weigh this one when it was out of the box. But the weight of the strut brace, box it ships in and packaging material is 12 lbs.

This seems to use the strut studs instead of the separate studs Ford uses for their brace. Is that right? And if you are using the strut studs and have the cowl brace, how do you get a flat surface on the tower to mount this brace? Do you use spacers?

Asked by: Hoosier Daddy
That is correct, this uses the strut studs. The backside of the machined billet ends have the correct reliefs for the cowl brace and contours of the strut towers. It sits flush without the use of spacers.

Hello, this item is suitable if my vehicle (2016 Mustang EcoBoost) is already equipped with original cowl extension ? Thank you in advance for your answer. Cordially.

Asked by: Chris1708
Yes.

Why do all of the s550 strut towers fit every model but the v6? Is it because the shape of the v6?

Asked by: alexs2015sanic
Yes, the intake manifold of the V6 sits up so high that there is not enough room to create a worthwhile strut tower brace that will fit between the manifold and hood on the 2015+ Mustang.

Drake Muscle Cars Strut Tower Brace 550R Aluminum EcoBoost/GT/GT350/GT350R 2015-2017 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: For years a strut tower brace has been a great way to stiffen up the front chassis and improve the handling on your mustang. If you have a 2015 and up Mustang GT and order the performance pack option, you get a factory strut tower brace. If you have a base GT or EcoBoost and want to add one, today we're going to show you how using this 550R brace from Drake Muscle Cars. This 550R strut tower brace from Drake Muscle Cars is made of 6061 aluminum. Features built with end sections that are C and C machined and extruded center section making it extremely strong. Best of all, it's a direct bolt-on for your EcoBoost or nonperformance packed Mustang GT.

Begin the installation under the hood by removing these three strut nuts here. You want to make sure the car is on the ground. If you have it up in the air and remove these, the suspension's going to fall out. Make sure the car's on the ground. With pressure on it, they're not going to go anywhere. Then do the same thing on the other side. You want to remove this battery wire from this stud here. Simply pull up on the clip and it will free itself. Let's just push that off to the side a little bit. The strut tower brace has holes for three nuts we removed and additional hole for the factory studs. Just lay it in place. We reinstall the factory nuts. Get all 6 started by hand, then we're going to torque for 46 pounds for you of torque.

Now your installation is finished. We had the shock powered dress up kit on our car previously. The pieces that go on here obviously will not fit. The centerpiece still will. The Drake Muscle Car's 550R strut tower brakes do a great job at stiffening up the chassis, and it looks great under the hood as well. As far as installation goes, the only tool you're going to need is a 15 mm socket and a correct torque wrench. Installation should take you no longer then about 30 minutes. You'll be back on the road in no time.
