MM Coronavirus Update

We’re changing our phone hours to 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Pacific Time (Monday-Friday, excluding holidays) so we have more time to process orders and get them out to you.

Please be aware
Our supply chain is suffering major pandemic-related disruptions. Many of our suppliers shut down for a time, and like us are operating with reduced manpower. Meanwhile, demand for MM products has skyrocketed. Thank you! We’re a small company and we regret our website isn’t fancy enough to inform you of back orders when you buy something. Please understand that we’re working as fast as we can to fill your orders.

UPS Shipping Times As of March 24, UPS no longer guarantees the shipping time for any shipment. i.e., expect shipping time to lengthen.

Should I add a strut tower brace to my Mustang?

Stiffen the front portion of the chassis with a Strut Tower Brace. Handling will improve, becoming more stable and predictable.

  • Unique design provides a load path between the two individual strut towers, and back to the firewall. This keeps the strut towers from moving relative to each other. Flexing of the strut towers, both fore/aft and side-to-side, causes unpredictable handling because the flexing causes alignment changes.
  • Increased chassis rigidity from the strut tower brace will reduce firewall and dashboard vibration, metal fatigue, and noise.

Maximum Motorsports Strut Tower Brace features:

  • STB main tubes are made of rigid 1-1/4" diameter DOM tubing. This tubing is twice as stiff as the generally used 1" tubing, and DOM tubing is 30% stiffer than the more commonly used ERW, seamed tubing.
  • The brace rear support tubes bolt to the pinchweld that runs the width of the firewall. When attaching to sheet metal, the best mounting point is at a joint or a corner, such as the Mustang firewall pinchweld. This pinchweld is formed by folding and welding three pieces of metal (the upper firewall, the lower firewall, and the cowl floor) together. This provides an extremely stiff mounting point for our Strut Tower Brace.
  • Nearly all other strut tower braces attach to the very center of the firewall, its weakest and most flexible portion. Attaching there adds little stiffness, and leads to cracking and tearing of the firewall.
  • On 5.0L Mustang engines, MM Strut Tower Braces allow the use of all popular intake manifolds because no part of the brace passes over the top of the intake manifold.
  • Designed to allow the use of MM Caster/Camber plates.
  • Attached with high quality grade 5 hardware.
