The crew at Steeda Autosports is hard at work developing upgrades for the latest Mustang. We recently shared the companyâ€™s new IRS Subframe Bushing Support System, and now they are back with another clever new product for the rearend of the 2015-and-newer Mustangâ€”S550 Mustang Rear IRS Subframe Braces (PN 555-5754; $194.95).
â€œWhat we did was tie together three very important points on the S550 chassis. We utilized existing threaded holes in the rocker panel (the strongest part of the body) and connected that to the front mounting location of the IRS subframe and the rear mount of the lower control arm and toe link,â€ says the company. â€œConnecting these three points together not only adds rigidity that was lacking in the rear, but also more control of the whole car.â€
Packing a lifetime warranty, these easy-to-install braces are said to offer improved handling and reduced wheel hop with no added noise vibration and harshness.
