Koni STR.T or Eibach Pro Damper sport shocks

Looking to upgrade my shocks and struts in my 06 GT. but I'm undecided on which ones to get. Help?!?!?

I'm also replacing the stock springs with Eibach Pro-kit.

I would just keep all the same brand if possible. I'll love to hear which way you going and the results...
I'm also shopping around for some shocks and struts. So far I bought my springs from SR and also my camber bolts. Need the shocks to put everything on my ride

Everything I've read or heard is koni is great. I went with koni. Although I haven't installed yet. Also went with the sportline kit. I wanted that extreme drop. Haha. But if you didn't already know. Camber plates and panhard bar are also highly suggested when dropping. I was told they weren't absolutely nessassry with the pro kit because it isn't a huge drop.

Get the gt 500 strut mounts! The stock stut mounts on these mustangs are junk! I read a couple of threads were guys bought them and needed them, so I did the same and glad I did. The stock strut mounts just came apart when I was replacing my shocks and struts. Had Ball bearings all over my garage floor. I went with the Koni STR.T and Tousley ford had the Gt 500 mounts for $83. I just had AM price match them cause that's where I was buying the shocks from

That sucks. I guess I will have to keep that in mind. Where is it that you find them so cheap? Or do you know where can I get the best deal?

Thanks 610sWolf for posting up that link, great deal I'm placing my order right now.
There should be a treat called "special of the day" anyone who finds a great deal should post it up and all forum members could benefit.

haha, I've never purchased from tousley ford but I did do the price match with am like Sully08gt said. I just trust AM more not to mess up my order and I know it'll be there within a days time usually.
