For what it's worth, when Magnusson installed a blower on my 2011 GT, they had to remove the strut tower brace. I missed it because of the way it looked, but not because it was less stable. (Not a drag racer.)

I bought a GT strut tower brace from Roush for my wife's 2020 GT. (They evidently sell the parts they remove for there kits on Ebay) Definite difference in front end handling with stock 235 Pirellis when cornering.

The strut to cowl brace is the important one.
Most important. I agree if you only have one, the strut to cowl makes the most difference. But ~triangles rule.

Dealer is installing the Roush Phase II. I have the Performance Pack. That has the strut tower brace. The brace no longer fits because of the SC. I called Roush and they were NO Help. Unfreakingbelieveable.

Does anyone have a solution for a tower brace that will fit over the SC? Gotta solve this ASAP as I'm picking up the car next week.

Really appreciate the help.
The guys at Steeda suggested this to me.

While I’m down with Steeda, I think the lower brace tackles a different issue than the shock towers moving. ...maybe it will fill the gap in feel so much you’d never be able to tell, idk.

I don’t think it’s a replacement so much as just something else to buy.

The lower brace will let you feel how loose the rear is, prompting you to buy the IRS bracing. Everything is tight like a tiger after installing both. Ask me how I know.

Very sad to hear about Ba'al.

I almost have the entire Steeda catalog under my car including the Road Race K-member so I know.

Do you have experience with these mounts, or are you just guessing?
I have experience with these types of mounts. I have the nearly every part that steeda sells installed in the car. Dropping the engine, especially on urethane mounts, is not something I would recommend on primarily street driven cars. Everybody is different and there are folks who don't mind added noise and vibration.
