    Here is an informative video showcasing Steeda's S550 Mustang Rear IRS Subframe Support Braces for the S550.

    Connecting in three (3) strategic points & triangulating the points help eliminate deflection from side to side & front to back. It also offers rigidity - helping the subframe to become more planted in place.

    This video gives a great overview of what is taking place & how the IRS Subframe braces can be integrated to give your S550 the support it needs!

    Check them out here & where they are currently on sale - link!

    I put those on a few months ago. The back end feels like it's planted more solidly since I added them.

    There was one minor issue with the install. The forward slots on the driver side wouldn't quite line up with the bolt holes in my chassis. I used a drill to widen the slots about a sixteenth of an inch and then it went right on.

    Aside from that one little nitpick, it was a real quality product with beautiful workmanship.

    Looks like you modified the design for easier installation (elongated slots for the bolt hole). Nice touch.

    Two thumbs up for these braces. They stabilize the rear perfectly for a GT street car all on thier own.

    I did these, along with a few other Steeda goodies.

    Can't say enough about it all, it's a massive difference.

    Does the car have to fall off the lift to get that massive difference or can you skip that step :giggle: :crackup: :cwl:



    sorry, too easy, couldn't resist

    The last time I spoke to manufacturing (R & D) they were still working on them for the convertible. I will circle back & see where they are.

    I find it interesting that they fit so well it's almost like they were meant to be there. I haven't seen them in person, but watching the video it looks like there is a slot the brace fits right inside.

    Well, the convertible crowd may have to wait a little bit - I spoke to Scott & there are other projects ahead of these. We have to see what the demand is for the convertible owners ... there is a lot of time they will need to invest in these before they could make it a reality. They aren't ruling them out but for the moment, they are not taking precedence over there other stuff (K-member, etc.)

    As a fellow Convertible owner, I will see what I can do :)

    Yep, money well spent on these IRS braces. I have Steeda parts all over my car and can honestly say I never had any quality or fitment issues with any of their parts. They perform as they were designed to.
