Fabrication Releases the First X-Brace Available for the 2005-2009
S197 Ford Mustangs
NH. July, 2009. DHR Fabrication LLC, a subsidiary of Dad’s
Hot Rod and Fabrication Shop LLC, introduces its exclusive
line of sub-frame X-Braces for the 2005-2009 hardtop and convertible,
S197 Ford Mustang. The introduction of the X-Brace, to the
high-performance parts industry, is a highlight for DHR Fabrication
and Dad’s Hot Rod Shop. The X-Brace is the first offered
for the Ford Mustang model years 2005-2009.
DHR Fabrication X-Brace mounts under the vehicle for
torsional rigidity. This unique design triangulates
the floor-pan and increases the strength of the sub-frame.
X-Brace diagonally ties the lower rear control arm mounts
to the front sub-frame mount, incorporating 1”
by 2” box tubing and 3/16” thick steel plate
suspension mounting points.
X-Brace is installed using ten existing bolt holes in
just one 1 hour. No drilling or welding is required.
The X-Brace is epoxy primer coated and all mounting
hardware is included.
X-Brace design is a one-of-a-kind for this model. It
has been developed for our demanding customers who race
solo and auto-cross events. It delivers added rigidity
and reduces rattles, particularly noticeable in the
convertibles. We are confident this brace hits the mark,”
said Chris Brown, owner of DHR Fabrication and Dad’s
Hot Rod and Fabrication Shop.
X-Brace is patent pending and retails for $395. The X Brace
is currently available for purchase at www.dhrfabrication.com.
Fabrication also manufactures a four point, steel plate, K-Member
Brace. The K-Member Brace is also the first of its kind available
for the 05-09, S197 Ford Mustangs. The K-Member Brace is designed
to reduce front sub-frame flex. The K-Member brace is epoxy
coated black, includes all mounting hardware, and installs
in about 30 minutes. The K-Member brace can be used alone
or in conjunction with the X-Brace. The K-Member Brace retails
for $129 and is available for purchase at www.dhrfabrication.com.
