Mishimoto Radiator Brackets
Mishimoto has developed these 1997-2004 Ford Mustang aluminum radiator stays to replace the OEM upper radiator brackets. These are a must have for any 1997-2004 Mustang owner looking to install an aftermarket radiator. The stock OEM Ford Mustang brackets have a rigid design that does not allow them to bend and move in harmony with the Mustang's uni-body when it is being torqued under hard driving conditions. These forces, combined with the Mustang's rigid upper radiator brackets cause performance aluminum radiators to crack and leak. The Mishimoto 1997-2004 Ford Mustang radiator stays are made out of thin gauge aluminum and use a softer rubber bushing, allowing the bracket to bend and move with the radiator, thus preventing damage. These Mishimoto radiator mounts are a simple bolt in installation and are Designed to fit both OEM and after-market radiators.
Fits perfectly. Bought these mounts for my SVE radiator. They handle the extra thickness great and have bit more flex than the factory mounts. I think this will help reduce strain on the radiator and handle vibration better.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
