I've never heard of anything other than 428 Cobra Jet Mustangs having reinforced shock towers in 1968. That would include regular Mustang, HCS, GT/CS, and GT500KR. Cougars were different, I'm just talking Mustangs. Maybe a few other than 428s got the reinforced shock towers, but it was the exception. It had nothing to do with heavy duty suspension. It was R-code specific. 1968 G.T.-350 and 1968 G.T.-500 got welded shock tower bracing but not the wrap-around bracing that the GT500KRs got.
