Question Front strut tower brace & Front sway bar

I was thinking about doing some upgrades to the suspension on my 2005 v6 for some better handling when it comes to the highway and corners. I am not really to interested in springs and lowering my mustang. So I wanted to get some thoughts on if I should go with the Front strut tower brace & Front sway bar, will I see a difference in handling on the highway and corners? Also should I consider a Rear sway bar or will it not really make a difference?

Thanks that's great to here. Do you think I will notice a difference with just the stock springs?

When it comes to strut tower braces, one brand vs another won't make any difference, they all do the same thing. If that's the one you like and it fits, go for it.

Alright thanks, I have been doing some more research regarding sway bars and have comes across some people stating that a rear sway bar does not make much of a difference on the 4.0 that only the front sway bar does is their any truth to this?

I put on a rear sway bar on my 6'er and I noticed quite a difference.
A couple of months later I put on a front strut brace and noticed quite a difference again.
Do it.

I got a strut tower brace for my 2011 v6 and it tightened things up nicely. My car is a daily driver so I didn't want to lower it either. Rather than add a bigger sway bar change out the shocks and struts. I just did Strange Engineering adjustable shocks and struts and it made a huge difference. They're really easy to adjust as well, so I can make the ride as firm/soft as I want. Plus they don't cost any more than a typical good quality non-adjustable shock/strut Click image for larger version

I just put in a pair of rear shocks and noticed what could be a problem.

I have 17" Bullitt takeoffs. My sway bar easily clears the 17" wheels. If you have the 16" factory wheels, the sway bar might clear, but it could be close.

I have this bar.

Anyone have any thoughts?
