    It happens to every brand. Both my M3 and M4 had rattles/creeks. My M4 wasn't bad, but my M3 was worse than my GT350 is.

    Crank up the tunes, roll down the windows, sport mode. It hides the rattles nicely ;)

    I never noticed any tramlining on my stock wheels/tires until I switched over to the 6G R-Spec wheels and R-Spec Cup 2's. I was talking with fuhrius a while back when he mentioned the tramming in his R. Now I know what he was talking about!! If this brace fixes that, then I'll spend the $80 something for it. I wouldn't want to "mask" some other issue though.

    I guess I don't understand how a bar reduces the car's wheels tendency to follow the contours in the surface of the road.

    The idea of this brace helping tramlining is simple, more rigidity equals less flex which in turn keeps your alignment in order in situations where lumpy roads would have otherwise caused the front end to flex in a way that affects your alignment.

    That is the concept here.

    Also, dont knock it till you try it.

    Not knocking it. I understand tightening the frame up as helping with body flex. I just see the front wheels as designed to turn, making that the reason for tramlining.

    I'm a novice to this so...Take that with a grain of salt

    I may buy one for my friends s550 5.0. He's running gt350 replica's with 295/35/19 mpss fronts and he has pretty bad tramlining. If it makes a differance on his car i'll definatley be getting one for my shelby.

    How many miles on your tires?

    I notice that tires always need a run in period. After that they settle down a lot. So if the tramlining is on tires w less than 1000 miles - maybe run them in a little more. Maybe whatever ills exist will calm down some. I have about 600 miles now and will withhold judgement for a while. Right now, yes, it does tramline. I found going from an Audi A5 (they have their own odd steering characteristics), the GT350 mustang feels a little disconnected and or numb. But on the other hand the level of grip is beyond belief. The first thing I felt in the 350 was it was like driving a 526 HP brick. I don't mean that in a bad way either. It was just strange to dive into corners, apply heavy braking, etc, and not have any perceivable body roll - at all.

    There has to be quantitative data to prove their is an improvement before millions are spent on engineering a component.

    [MENTION=25806]SteedaTech[/MENTION] Can you chime in on this topic and maybe provide more feedback on this and why it reduced the tramlining?

    contis tramline very little, I went to a 305/325 setup and it is all but gone. Softer sidewalls I suspect.

    All I have to say is this Steeda Mod helps the this 350 I also had Steeda G-Track Brace on my GT and you can feel the difference with The Steeda G-Brace on the car. OK so you have the Ford Performance Strut Brace on the top end of the car to take out body flex, so I feel this Steeda G-Brace Is doing the same for the bottom end of the car. If you take time to study how this Steeda G-Brace is bolted to the bottom end, I truly believe it's helping the bottom end. Maybe Someone at Steeda can can jump in and explain more on how this helps your car....... :ford: cheers:

    And if and when I buy another Mustang I'd have the Steeda G-Brace on that car to guys.... :thumbsup:

    LOL. My brand spanking new Porsche used to squeak so loud that it was embarrassing. I couldn't believe it.

    Now, I've owned 2 F10 M5's and no squeaks rattles or anything. It was very well built.
