Mustang Ground Effects Bracket Kit Installation (Fox Body 87-93 GT/Cobra) - Mustang Ground Effects Bracket Kit Fox Body

If the ground effects, also known as side skirts, are sagging on your GT or Cobra model Fox Body Mustang, this is because the brackets have rusted through. Often these rust over time and become brittle and break. Many times you might not even recognize this problem until you go to remove the ground effects on your Mustang.

Removing and replacing the ground effects on is a requirement for a new paint job. For those doing a 93 Cobra Conversion or 87-93 GT Conversion you will either need these if you have a LX model or will probably need to replace yours if you already have a GT model. Follow along in this video as we show you how our 5.0Resto Ground Effect Kit can help you tackle this project with ease!

Installation requires you to drill out the old rivets to remove the old brackets. Once the old brackets are removed you simply align the new ones and rivet them into place. When doing this installation on your Fox Body Mustang, it is a good time to tackle the job of removing the rust found in the ground effect area.

Ford Mustang - 1987 (87) - 1988 (88) - 1989 (89) - 1990 (90) - 1991 (91) - 1992 (92) - 1993 (93)
1987 to '93, Mustang GTs, as well as the 1993 Cobra, have metal retainers that hold the lower side skirts onto the body. There are five total per side, one long one that runs along the rocker, and then four short ones, two at the very rear of the front fender, and the other two are at the front of the rear quarter. These metal retainers are prone to rust and to severe damage, if the side skirts are removed improperly.

These 50resto ground effect brackets are direct replacements for the original and are available individually, as well as in a complete kit with attaching hardware. You'll definitely want to pick up a set if your GT or Cobra is on its way to the body shop.
