I couple of my fun cars have strut tower braces, one is in the trunk LOL, and one runs under the throttle body...

I was curious about this too. And after his post responding to yours I wonder even more. Stock tire, stock ride height Maverick being driven like that seems like a not great idea. And this coming from a life long hooligan.
You should've saw how we drove the ill handling 60's cars with old tires in the early 80's. LOL.

Im with you my man. I had a 70 Nova and an 82 Camaro. Both of which I had skinnies on and 90/10 front shocks if you know what those are. They didn't handle or stop for shit, but that didn't stop us from driving like maniacs

Ya buddy, 90/10's really helped get the weight to the rear.

It came in yesterday but I wasn't feeling well. I purchased a Steeda Strut Tower Brace. It came professionally wrapped,, as it is powder coated. It took about 30 minutes to install with 2 bolts, 2 spacers and 2 washers. Had to relocate a wiring harness.

The Results:
Took it out for a 30 mile test drive evaluation. The strut Tower brace has done exactly what I had hoped for. It has stiffened the chassis just right. Gone is the vague feeling on initial turn in, now quicker and more linear, but not twitchy at all. The ride quality is enhanced in that body motions now do not affect the steering as much. Also noticed a reduction in cruise control pull to the right, when the throttle is applied vigorously by the CC. AKA torque steer. Seems to track straighter all the time, as compared to before. Not wanting to spend thousands on suspension mods, I think this is my perfect solution to the IMO marginal front suspension, . It is the only thing I am truly disappointed in and this has helped.. This strut brace has exorcised some of the FWD gremlins.
I installed one on my 2022 Maverick Lariat hybrid with some amount of...... oh well...... I'll try it.

I have definitely noticed that the truck feels more confident at higher speeds through the usual corners. It even feels tighter going over railroad tracks. It was easy to install (30 minutes for me) and a reasonably price add-on for the handling boost it gives.
