Product Description

Torque Box Reinforcement - Upper
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 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.

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

Application
- Fits 1979-2004 Ford Mustangs

    4 Stars   Good Product, U Will need help

    Image uploaded by Steve O. Installed this product on my 95GT. It seems to be a good product but I haven’t drove the car to tell if it has done anything to help. Some tips: have a friend help you with this install…easier to get the bolts in place. For my 95, I had to notch my seat support bracket to clear the bolts that stick out (also shaved the bolts down so they weren’t too long), and they don’t touch the seats when the seat bracket was reinstalled.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    4 Stars   Just what I needed.

    I purchased these along with J&M uppers. They got right in and really brace the boxes. They stopped a lot of creaking from my floorboard. The pictures in the directions were a little hard to see but they turned out nice and stiffened things up.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
