NEW! Shelby Rear Shock Tower Brace!

Recommended Posts

The Ford Shaker 1000 (I'm guessing that's what you have) blocks access to the shock tower, so the brace won't fit.

The Kicker subwoofer is $499.

There is no "package deal".

We use FedEx for delivery, the rates are set by them.

Jer,

 

The pic I saw of this brace installed appears to show it running along the floor of the trunk just behind the rear seats without blocking the folding action of the seats - is that correct? (I already ordered one...)

 

Sam

 

PS: I ordered some hood lifts from Champion - theirs are laser engraved "Shelby" - why not SPPs?

The seats fold as usual.

I'll check into the hood lift question.

 

BTW, everyone, we've added the Instructions to the Product Page as a clickable link.

That is interesting especially since the stickers on mine are already starting to peel. :-/

Just went to the parts page to look at the subwoofer-I see a 10" woofer, but no subwoofer. Price is the $499 you mention above. It says in that part listing that it's not for verts. Is there a Kicer subwoofer that works in verts, that allows the rear shock tower brace to fit?

Hmmm... Interesting conundrum. I'll look into it.

I don't own a vert - but I know a few vert owners. The kicker subwoofer does not fit verts and my understanding they do not plan to make one. I could be wrong - but there a a couple of threads on this around the forum somewhere.

Jer,

 

Correction to my PS! I just received the gas struts from Champion and

they are NOT laser engraved! They have a label/wrap and THAT says

Shelby on it! So they are slightly misleading in saying "laser engraved"!

Hey Jer so I was reading the instructions on installing this piece. Does it require removing sound deadening material? Is that what it means by "grinding away at the sound deadening material"?

Yes, just a small area of the "sound insulating spray" that's stuck to the metal in that area.

But removing that little bit won't effect noise coming into cabin correct?

 

Nooooo. You're removing an inch off the edge, at most.

I love the idea that there's a rear seat X-brace coming out - presumably you guys will be supplying the ellusive rear seat delete for 05-09 verts with this, not just for the coupes?

 

Next year I'll be putting the CS6 on a diet so this would definitely make the list :)

And since I'm getting the shelby trunk mat you guys sell, I'm assuming I could lay this bar right over it no problem?

Yup!

Maybe my question was so well hidden ......... Will the rear seat deletes be made to fit convertibles as well as coupes?

I have to do some homework on that. Sorry for the wait!

Ok, thanks - I'm sure there's a market for a convertible version.

I just checked. There is no convertible version, unfortunately.

Again, sorry for the delay getting back to you.

Oh I forgot to ask. What is this made out of and how much does it weigh?

 

 

It is steel, and weighs 5 pounds after powdercoating.

Rear shock tower brace arrived yesterday and I installed it today! No issue with the install, easiest to work from inside the cabin through the back seats. The brace adds a nice touch to the trunk, it's out of the way but very visible. As a non-professional, I doubt I'll notice any improvement in handling, but hey, it's in there!

I'll take a couple of pics tomorrow, but to tell the truth, it won't look much different than the "trunk view" here:

Instructions were minimal, but accurate and got the job done.

As I suspected, Ford Racing beats the competition;

M-6346612-A.jpg

It says "Fits 2011-2013" but I'm thinking it would fit earlier models too. Not any difference in the rear seat pan that I know of....

 

 

  • Fits 2011-2013 Mustang GT Coupe

  • Original equipment on 2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca

  • Includes X-Brace, Trunk-end trim panel and center luggage cover

  • No cutting or welding required

  • Kit includes all hardware

  • Off Road Use Only!
