Stack Racing Mustang Strut Tower Bar Install

Stack Racing Mustang Strut Tower Bar
In an effort to utilize more black accents on the car. I called up the guys over at American Muscle and had them ship a Stack Racing Black Mustang Strut Tower Bar. This bar is made from aircraft-grade 4130 chromoly alloy steel to help keep your front end from flexing. The team at Stack racing have the right idea when it comes to Mustang Strut Bar design. This bar not only comes in two color options but the center plate in the center of the bar is removable. They provide a GT plate and a blank plate. Thanks Stack for making a superior bar that also caters to guys who want show and go.

I painted the eight nuts with flat black rustolium paint so they would match better.
Use a 13mm socket to remove and replace the eight nuts holding the brace on the car.
Stack Racing Black Mustang Strut Tower Bar Clearance I placed a white card behind the strut bar and took a picture.  I also have the 3.7L engine cover on the car. There is about 1/2 to 3/4 inch clearance.
Stack Racing Black Mustang Strut Tower Bar Hood Test To test aftermarket hood clearance I then took a small piece of double sided tape with only one side exposed. I then closed my RK sport hood. The tape did not stick to the hood so I know it has a decent amount of clearance.
