Ford F150 SHOXSpeed Strut Tower Brace

Sometimes sports car technology bleeds over into the off-road realm, and when it does it usually hits in a big way. Over the past several years the auto manufacturers have been switching things up and changing our beloved pickups from the tried-and-true coil spring and torsion bar to the new-to-trucks coilover or strut-type front suspension. This has been great as it has allowed us to more easily lift our late-model trucks. But when we lift a truck and add larger tires this adds weight, which forces the chassis to flex more, which in turn minimizes shock performance creating a harsh and unstable ride. There is a cure for this however, and it comes in the form of a strut tower brace.

Strut tower braces have been around for decades in the sports car and off-road racing world. Seeing the need, SHOXSpeed has developed a line of strut tower braces specifically for late model pickup trucks. Installed in less than 30 minutes the SHOXSpeed brace not only helps improve handling and steering response but also reduces chassis and body flex resulting in a smoother and more controlled ride. The SHOXSpeed strut tower brace comes complete with all the necessary hardware, excellent instructions, and is powder coated with a high-temp coating in a classy high gloss black which looks great in any engine compartment.
