Hey. First post so please pardon any gaffes. Sold my awesome 2019 PP2 red Recaro 401A car a month ago. It wasn't getting much drive time and we have a loaded 2018 GT premium auto for the daily so it was not used often enough.

The Recaros got old quick and the manual and PP2 suspension was only fun without passengers if you know what I mean.

Hey Tony,
The rag top Mustang is a great looking car, best of brand . Recaros, do look nice, (race, belts) falls short getting in and out of the car

Disagree with regards to the 6sp, am curious to learn more abut the suspension & passenger comment..

Tightening up the body flex, in the front think the 4 point K member is a better choice.

The rear, thinking I remember seeing a photo & saw the reason Steeda bracing is a no go.

But don't remember why, how about posting photo of that. Showing the front of the wheel well and


@Bikeman315:

Wheel & tires stiffing body ......... yes when removed, car sitting on the body.. LMAO

I just put the 2 point and jacking rails in...significant is right. So much better. mustang6g to the rescue.
Did you install yourself or have dealer do it?
The Steeda rails for $179 and 2 point subframe brace for $109 greatly improved my rides structural stability. There are other companies that offer similar products. I'm sure they're good too.
I. too, cannot find a two point Steeda subframe brace (neither description or price turn up anything obvious)...Thanks if you can help with a link!

I've said it before, I'll say it again - get the 2 point front subframe brace from steeda and the rear IRS braces / connectors. They bolt right on and the difference is ridiculous.
Do you mind pointing me to links to the two mods you mention above? I'd like to stiffen and improve cornering with my '16 CT vert w Roush SC as much as possible. Thank you!

The IRS braces don't fit on a convertible. There's factory bracing in the way.

FWIW: I do not know if the extra bracing under my 2020 GT, PP1, MagneRide, Vert is there because its a vert, or a PP1 car. I know I can't get to the torque boxes in the back because of the brace(s).

Last year I installed the Steeda Jacking Rails just to make it easier to raise for maintenance. I don't track my car or drive it hard so I haven't noticed any difference.

BTW: Nice Vert - lol.
I installed a light bar recently. Even though it’s decorative, I feel like it tightened up the car a little. It’s mounted pretty solid and connects the passenger and driver side of the car In a manner like the strut tower brace.
