Product Description

Torque Box Reinforcement Kit - Upper & Lower
Torque boxes are the area in the rear of your Mustang where the upper and lower control arms attach to the chassis. Combined with V8 power and increased loads of torque, these areas can easily become fatigued over time and can begin to crack. This can be harmful to your driveline and overall performance in track and drag racing environments.

Additional
This kit reinforces the stock upper & lower torque boxes to add strength & durability to your rear end. Constructed of 11 gauge steel, these heavy duty plates can be bolted in for increased reinforcement, but we recommend welding them in order to provide maximum strength. Kits include all mounting brackets, hardware, and installation instructions.

Note
Upper Reinforcements will not work with factory convertible chassis braces.

Application
- Fits 1979-2004 Ford Mustangs

    4 Stars   Fit good
    By on 4/28/2014
    Bought brake lines and torque box reinforcements. Brake lines fit like a glove other than unbending where they packaged them and getting them to fit snug against body. Torque boxes fit okay. No locknuts on 1/2" bolts and the bolts stick down to far and hit upper control arm. Had to cut down bolts.

    Lowers much easier to install than uppers, just need a second pair of hands for the uppers. Definitely can tell it does as advertised. Well worth the price.

    By on 3/17/2014
    heavy duty quality. a must have for anyone looking to take their fox to the strip. install is challenging. lowers are moderate difficulty and the uppers are difficult. make sure you have a quality drill bit ready to go for this install. you can do a direct bolt on but i would recommend welding the uppers.

    Nice but they didn't line up properly. I only used the lower torque boxes since I decided to go with a torque arm (no upper control arms). It could of been the car I bought (which was a stock 4 cyl) but the control arm holes were off a bit.

    With the fear of damaging the poorly reinforced factory torque boxes with hard launches, this reinforcement kit from LateModelResto is perfect to not have to worry about that again. Best prices around with the quality to back it up!

    5 Stars   Stop the cracks!
    By on 11/27/2015
    With aged bodies comes fatigued metal and cracks can easily form along the main stress points of the rear suspension. Avoid it altogether with adding some reinforcements. It doubles as additional weight in the back for a touch more traction too!

    By on 9/9/2014
    I added these to my 1994 GT before purchasing a set of drag radials. The only "mod" I had to do was on the the vehicle torque boxes themselves. The actual products itself was packaged with all the instructions and hardware needed!
