    MN12/FN10 Diff Cover Braces and Rear Shock Tower Braces

    A limited supply of both of these braces will be available starting on March 27th (next Monday).


    AzzKicker Cars Rear Differential Cover Brace: $135 shipped anywhere in the continental U.S.

    These braces reduce the load on the weak rear differential cover, preventing the cover from breaking under load. These are made from 1/4" thick steel, are painted gloss black, and come with the four required longer bolts. This brace fits any 89-97 Tbird/Cougar as well as any 93-98 Mark 8.







    This is what can happen without this brace installed:







    AzzKicker Cars Rear Shock Tower Brace: $45 shipped anywhere in the continental U.S.

    These braces strengthen the rear shock towers by connecting them. The end result is less body flex, for a much more stable feeling in the twisties. These braces mount to the strongest part of the rear shock towers. The supplied hardware goes through several layers of sheetmetal for a strong, secure attachment. This brace fits any 89-97 Tbird/Cougar. It may fit 93-98 Mark 8's, however I have not confirmed this as of yet. This brace can be installed without removing the shocks, though a compact or right angle drill or a short drill bit is necessary due to the confines of the area. These braces come painted gloss black.








    Depending on the demand for these, we may consider making other braces for MN12's and FN10's in the future.

    I accept paypal or money order. Buyers will need to cover the paypal fee if they choose that payment option. The paypal fee for the differential cover brace will be $5, and the fee for the rear shock tower brace will be $2. Please contact me at rodsv6cougar@cs.com for ordering information.

    I just want to make sure everyone sees these. I've already received a few "pre" orders on both braces. I should have enough of both braces in stock on Monday to start shipping these out.

    If anyone else is ready for either of these braces, please send me an email for ordering info. I'll need to know whether you would like to use paypal or money order.

    Thanks,
    Rod

    These braces are officially for sale now.

    However, I've had so many "pre-orders", that all of the diff cover braces that I had in stock are already sold. If you place an order for a diff cover brace, we should be able to have it made for you in about one week. These are being made on a first come first serve basis. As soon as I receive your order for one, we'll start building one for you.

    We do have plenty of rear shock tower braces in stock and ready to ship.

    What About Subframe Connectors Or Front Strut Tower Braces?

    We are looking into making other MN12 related braces. We just want to see how well these two braces sell before we start building jigs for other braces. So far, these things have been selling like crazy.

    I will certainly take note of your suggestion. I know that I would like to have a set of subframe connectors on one of my personal cars, so my vote lies there, too.

    Got mine!

    I picked up my diff brace at the post office today. Might install it this weekend. Any suggestions on the best way to install it while losing the least amount of diff fluid? I was thinking of slightly loosening all the diff bolts so the cover doesn't "open up" when only one side is relieved.

    pablon2, I can't answer that with complete certainty, since I installed mine while the centersection was out of the car on a workbench. However, I would imagine that if you just remove those four cover bolts it shouldn't leak any fluid out.

    White Lightning, whenever you are ready for one, just send me an email at rodsv6cougar@cs.com, and I'll send you the payment information.

    Just don't go selling your dog for one.

    Thanks,
    Rod

    We were able to build another batch of each of these braces over the past couple days, so we have plenty of both on hand and ready to ship.
