I was doing an under carriage inspection & noticed my right side rear support brace is so rusted I can stick my finger straight through the middle of it. I went to the Ford stealer & they want $1,200 for a set of 2.
Part #'s 76102-B/54 & 55... They're insane!
So I've been researching some solutions & would like your feedback & advice. Btw in the Haynes manual it states that these braces are only found on convertibles .
Solution 1: Junkyard. Cannot find a convertible mustang anywhere so that's out.
Solution 2: Get this or something similar to this BMR subframe connector & have it welded on... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BMR-SFC011R/
Solution 3: Remove both braces & take them to a machine shop for repair and/or reinforcement
Can you guys give me a DIY tip or solution? If not, maybe someone on here knows of a good shop in the NYC area that has experience with chassis modding & reinforcing
Thanks in advance
