Decrease tramlining! Steeda G Brace works!

Good Lord what a difference! I have no idea why this simple 15 minute add-on works so well on tramline reduction but my R drives night n day easier now!

Thanks Steeda!

Dude it's on the bottom of the car... I'd have to lift it again to get pics.

And you are talking about part #555-5533 right? The 2 point bar? I read the 4 point and it has a little note that directs you to the right part just want to clarify so no one goes all click happy and orders the wrong thing.

Yes, the 2-point lightweight bar.

What does it do exactly? Newbie here. Is it worth using on a street car?

BMR also has a good offering. I'd look into both.

Interesting, I didn't realize these braces could provide those benefits. My 17 GT seems to experience a bit of wander when going from on throttle to off, would a brace like this or one of the cradle braces help with that?

I hate to say it like this as I can't imagine an R needing anything more in the suspension department but it shores up the front end nicely. The car is more taught on transistions from one lane to the next.

I can't explain more, but maybe David from Steeda will come along and explain it in detail.

I have a feeling that if you have really bad tramlining, your toe alignment may be off. My '16 pulled really hard but my '17 over the same roads is nearly completely neutral. They didn't change components between years, I just think the factory alignment probably has a tighter spec and/or they're more competent now.

my toe was pretty bad from the factory. I had it aligned properly and noticed better manners but my car still tramlines like an SOB. Frankly, i don't mind it...it's part of the car's charm ;-)

Not to be a downer, but I always wonder why Ford (or any manufacturer) would overlook something this cheap and simple if it improves the car so much. I always wonder if it will do some harm to other components over time. That being said, I may look into it.
