Our friends at Kenny Brown have released a new Heavy-Duty Rear Shock Tower Brace designed to fit 2005-2014 Mustang, Boss 302 and Shelby GT500. The new rear brace features a 3-point mounting design and can be neatly installed without significantly affecting the rear seats and trunk areas.
While their new Rear Shock Tower Brace is not as ornate as the BOSS 302 X-Brace that has become the rage lately, it performs much the same function of stiffening up the rear chassis when using using coil-over shocks or submitting your Mustang to heavy track-day use.
“Our Heavy-Duty Rear Shock Tower Brace comes from necessity, according to Kenny Brown. This is just one of several new components that have been spawned from our GT4 Mustang program. Anyone that converts to coil-over rear shocks should strongly consider some additional bracing at the rear shock towers, but it also makes a huge difference in the overall feel and dynamics of the car”.
The Rear Shock Tower Brace is designed to reinforce the shock mounting points and the mid-section of the car over the rear axle. The unique three-point design ties both shock towers together, and mounts to the mid pan just in front of the spare tire.
By triangulating this area together you create a much more rigid structure that improves ride-quality and handling, while also adding the reinforcement needed for coil-over or racing shocks. The three-point design also allows for minimal weight addition with maximum strengthening.
Installation uses the OEM hardware for traditional type rear shocks, along with other additional pre-drilled mounting locations, and is compatible with coil-over rear shock assemblies. The component is manufactured from high-grade steel, finished in a durable powder coating, and includes all required hardware.
