Product Description

Torque Box Reinforcement - 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 lower torque box 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.

Application
- Fits 1979-2004 Ford Mustangs

    4 Stars   Great product but bad fit on a 95 GT
    By on 8/5/2015
    The product looks great and a good job was done in producing the item. I would give the product 3.5 stars.
    On my 95 GT i had to enlarge the box opening to get the lower plate in with i was expecting but the problem came in with the bolt hole that goes to the lower control. The control arm hole was off by a quarter of an inch. I kept enlarging the hole in small increments and checking the fit so i don't make the hole too big.
    Plus i would suggest painting the parts that go on the outside before installation. Another tip, the instructions say to put the bolts through the bottom but i put them from the interior and had plenty of room for the control arm bolt to go in.

    4 Stars   Nice Quality

    These torque box plates are a good gauge thickness, with quality welds. Haven't installed them yet, but I'm pleased with the product. Only complaint is that they are bare steel and had surface rust on them when they arrived. Not a big deal. Just shot them with some paint and they look great. If you weld them the paint will come off
    anyway.

    product was clearly not designed to fit a convertible without some modification. with a bit of work, some large hammers, and a welder they fit just fine and should do the job. What else can you say they are metal plates. seems like quality hardware

    Product came as described, well mad and fit perfect. I welded the parts in place instead of bolting them on.

    5 Stars   Fit Okay~ But Quality product

    1992 Notchback Lx: I blame a bit of twist on my drivers side torque box because the edges weren't flush so the bracket sat funny. I had to drill another hole to accommodate the angle. Like any old girl I never expect bolt on to be easy. One thing to note is when putting on pay attention to one side of the lower bracket being angled and know that the upper piece that goes in the cabin sits underneath the rear seat bars. I was so confused because the holes would line up. Then I noticed it sat a bit underneath the rear seat bars.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
