If your car is lowered, you might want to get foxbody (87-93) shocks. They're a little cheaper too. Just something to think about.

I would wait until its lowered. The fox shocks and struts are shorter than the ones you have on there now.

98mustang11,

The most affordable shocks and struts we have available are the Koni STR.T's. They're not the highest performance strut/shock out there, but they're a decent quality and more importantly- safe to use. Check them out when you get a chance. They're going for $139.99 Front struts & $79.99 Rear shocks.

Hope this helps weight out your options!

Shane

Thought the KYB shocks/struts were a lot less than that?

They have a set of shocks and struts on AM that went on clearance for 550 and I have a coupon for 10% off if you want it. It's the black set for 99 to 05 or something like that.

Don't want to take over the thread. Jus a quick question, is tokico HP series a good brand to go with for new struts & shocks? For a 2004 mustang GT do you want adjustable or non adjustable?

Tokico is a great brand for the money if you have it to spend...and if you need the ability to adjust then go for it but you dont need it

Thanks for your help, was just wondering what which was better and if it mattered. Wanted the bilstein HD strut & shock package but $600 too much money right now. So think I'm going to go with tokico package

Im one of the ones that does! Ive run both ways, and by far prefer the feel of the fox struts and shocks. The stock ones are just not designed to be on a lowered mustang. A shorter shock has the shorter suspension travel accommodated into the design.

My car now is an absolute blast in the twisties. Stays firmly planted and flat as can be..
