Product Description

Shelby Performance Parts Rear Strut Tower Brace for 2005-2014 Mustangs.

Just as the front strut tower brace stiffens the chassis and enhances the handling characteristics of your Mustang, so does this rear shock tower brace. This task is accomplished without sacrificing available trunk space. Simple hand tools are needed for installation but you can also weld the brace in for additional rigidity.

This rear strut tower brace fits all 2005-2014 Mustangs and 2007-2014 Shelby GT500s.

Available in a silver powder coat or natural finish. The natural finish is VERY raw and oxidized. It is not brushed or finished in any way.

*Note: This brace does NOT fit with factory Ford trunk subwoofer, but DOES fit with Shelby/Kicker upgraded subwoofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy. Works Great! What a nice quality Product . Great Bang for your buck. Super easy install and I could tell a difference right away. I bought the unpainted version so I had the hassle of painting it. But.. That did not take away from how it installed or worked Seemed to stiffen up the rear and I can feel a difference especially with a convertible. I don't understand why these things didn't come from the factory. Well worth the $$$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suspension mod I bought the raw version which was ready for paint. Installation was straight forward. After painting the brace and removing a small amount sound deadener from around the base of the struts all that was left to do was to tighten the 2 shock nuts. The extra rigidity has made a noticable difference to the handling on my Shelby coupe. Great value at just over $100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and does tighten up the rear-end... Excellent Item from Shelby and CJ Pony. I painted mine textured matte black and it matches the trunk interior. Fit great and flush with a little putty removal from area. Does tighten the rear-end up, so good bang for the buck...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Product I bought this a year ago. The install was fairly easy. In a couple of place I had to remove putty from around the top of the strut locations in order to get the strut brace properly seated. I have not been to the track with the car since I installed the brace so I am unable to say if the handling was improved or not.

will this rear brace fit a 2010 mustang gt with a 4.6 without any modifications or welding?

That depends upon the specifics of your Mustang, and any other mods you have done, but you should be OK in most situations.

Shelby Performance Parts Rear Strut Tower Brace 2005-2014 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: Bill: We have a special guest in our studio today, Keith Chriswell from Shelby Performance Parts is here to tell us a little bit about the company and a couple of new parts that they offer. Keith thanks for coming.

Keith: Thanks for having me, Bill. I appreciate it.

Bill: Shelby is obviously an iconic name that everybody is familiar with, but what can you tell us about the performance parts division?

Keith: Yeah, the actual performance parts division was re-launched back in 2007. They cater specifically to 2005 and newer Mustangs. We actually did it as a result of wanting to offer the parts to our customers that we use on the cars and the vehicles we build there at our world headquarters in Las Vegas.

Bill: What can you tell me about these two parts you brought with you today?

Keith: What I brought along with me was two of our suspension related components and then there is a transmission cooler scoop. Really any opportunity you have in the suspension to triangulate it to increase stiffness makes it a much more performing vehicle both on the street and on the track.

In this case this is our rear strut tower brace. This is for our 2005 to 2013 vehicle. One of the unique design features of this is that actually it's low clearance in the trunk and doesn't sacrifice trunk space while also offering you stiffness in the rear chassis.

This one here is our transmission cooler scoop. This is for manual transmission 2005 to 2013 Mustangs. This one here is actually for any kind of track day you're actually out there increasing heat under the vehicle from this abuse and long term use without a lot of stops to cool it off. This is actually instrumental in the cooling of the transmission itself on a manual vehicle, which doesn't typically get a lot of attention.

Ford actually incorporates a version of this design in the 2013 Boss Laguna Seca model edition. We actually took that idea and made it a lot larger, put in a lot more air, to service a need in our vehicle, such as the Shelby 1000.

Bill: Both these parts will fit both standard and Shelby Mustangs?

Keith: Absolutely. One of the nice things about both of these parts is that you do not need to own an actual Shelby to actually have one and install it on your vehicle. It's just an added performance benefit to your car whether you own a Shelby or not.

Bill: We know Shelby makes a lot of performance parts. You guys do a lot of dress up stuff as well.

Keith: Absolutely Bill. We do exterior, interior, and engine dress up components just to add a little bit of Shelby style to your '05 and newer Mustang.

Bill: Great. Thanks for coming out today, appreciate it.

Keith: Thanks for having me, appreciate it.
