Total Control Products Aluminum Adjustable Shock Tower Brace for 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mustangs.
TCP's multi-stage shock tower bracing system reduces chassis flex and increases handling performance. The system is made up of three different braces that work together to add rigidity between the firewall, shock towers and inner fender structures.
Mounting brackets and bracing rods are all made from 6061-T6 aluminum and clear anodized for corrosion resistance. Brackets are 1/4" thick and tubing ends are swedged to increase wall thickness and strength at the threaded ends. The use of aluminum keeps the weight down so the shock tower system doesn't add much weight to the front end. Lightweight mild steel rod ends provide adjustment to adapt to your Mustang, even if the body isn't perfectly square.
- Tower export brace
- Monte carlo brace
- Truss brace
The main component of the system is the export brace. TCP's adjustable export brace triangulates the firewall and the shock towers. Adjustable length radius rods simplify installation by providing the proper fit for your Mustang. A 1/4" thick firewall bracket utilizes four existing mounting holes on the firewall/cowl seam but uses three additional drilled holes for increases strength. Shock tower plates also use existing mounting holes and they can be used with factory style suspension or TCP front coilovers.
TCP's monte carlo brace is used to fix the distance between the shock towers. Monte carlo bars resists movement of the shock towers toward each other during braking and cornering. Overall rod length and bracket placement is adjustable to provide flexibility during installation. A zinc plated, steel back-up support bracket is installed on the backside of the inner fender for additional strength. Adequate clearance is provided for large diameter distributors but modifications may be needed to clear A/C compressors or superchargers.
Tying the export brace and monte carlo brace together are the truss braces. Truss braces complete the system by connecting the shock tower plates to the central span of the monte carlo brace. Split-collar clamps secure the braces along the monte carlo bar and bolt directly to the shock tower brackets.

Please Note: Does NOT fit late model 5.0 EFI conversions. Also, some centrifugal supercharger models and A/C compressors will interfere with installation of the TCP Monte Carlo Brace. With proper equipment, the brace can be modified (bent) to work around these accessories. Examples of possible solutions are illustrated in each installation guide.
