Can't report any experience yet but just received a set of Tokico D-Specs from AM. Shopping for mild drop springs too. After much research current thinking is Steeda Sports or Ultralights. Any other recommendations/ favs?


Will be following w/ interest.

strange single adjustable front struts/rear shocks with cobra jet "Q" springs on my '05 mustang. Set them to +5 or +6 for daily driving use, and I can adjust them at the drag strip as necessary. The setup works well for me...

Sounds like a good set up man.

I'm running Tokico D-Spec Adjustable Struts and Shocks with Elibach Pro Lowering Springs and they work just fine.

You can adjust your ride comfort to a degree and your weight transfer!

The koni yellows are single adjustable, not double so they're not fully adjustable.

Most people don't need the double adjustable if you're new to racing, however, I see it as if you do it do it right.
