I had one of these on my '91 mustang and it made a huge difference, on that car there wasn't a ground clearance issue with that kind of brace. I saw the one in the BST section, but I dont want to sacrifice clearance plus it looks like doing an oil change would become a bitch. If the SVT wasn't my DD then maybe.

The cfm 4-pointer is copy cat of the old HT performance, that I was going to get, then HT performance went broke & CFM stepped up a few months later, & I go one to replace the Fwerks 2-pointer. I have the Sportline system w/ no issues w/ bumps or speed bumps. I went w/ gloss black one. I also have Dom's 4-point rear brace too. I say go for this mod over the strut tower brace 1st. Another great mod is CFM's tubular control arms & the rear toe-links. Make your foci feel more positive.

The lower one is a lot stiffer than the strut tower one. Just make sure you have desent dampers.

wait until you kick up a rock or something on the highway and it smacks into the brace...lol, scary sound.

There's pretty much no way you're keeping that thing looking pretty, it's going to get roughed up pretty bad.

I like it mainly as protection for my transmission more than anything. But I have the fswerks 2-pointer. Might have to get this one now instead.

And combine this with ES bushings and you'll be so amazed.
