Wanting to stiffen up your S197 chassis but still want to retain your rear seats? Pick up this 2005-2014 Mustang rear chassis X brace by Steeda! This brace mounts to the rear shock towers instead of the sheet metal behind the rear seats for a more secure install. By using this method, the brace is more effective and distributes the loads between the rear shocks, springs, and chassis. This results in better chassis deflection reduction and improved suspension performance. With this kit, you can keep your rear seats to avoid having to obtain a rear seat delete.
Steeda is out with another great product. This brace really ties the rear end together, making the car feel much more 'put together.' Install took about an hour with the bolt-in method. Being 6'4" tall, it was a bit of a squeeze to get into the back seat where I could get to the nuts on the back of the top bolts. I recommend an 18mm box end wrench with the nuts taped into the box end. This allowed me to slide the wrench up into the hole and then ratchet the bolts much easier from the trunk side.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I already had the fully adjustable Ford racing suspension setup on on 2013 mustang GT when I added this brace. Adding this brace to my car completely changed the handling characteristics of the car. The car feels more solid all around in a very noticeable way, and my entry and exit speeds on corners went up a great deal as well. I can't say enough about this mod, for the money it is a no-brainer.
I installed this myself in about an hour, the toughest part is getting the nuts started on the bolts, I just taped the nut to my wrench and took my time.
