2013 gt , koni str.t and gt500 mounts

Hi...shout out for preinstall advice. I have a 13 gt and bought the koni str.t struts(new versions made for 2011+) I also bought the gt500 strut mounts. Looking to install tomorrow , does anyone know if the gt500 mounts will work with these new version koni struts? I know they are required for the old versions. Thoughts?

No the gt500 mounts won't work with 11+ struts they only work with 05-10 struts!

Application. This pair of Ford Racing Strut Mounts are a direct fit upgrade for the 2005-2010 GT, V6, and 2007-2014 Shelby GT500. They will also fit 2011-2014 GT and V6 models, but will require 2005-2010 Ford Racing lowering springs and struts/shocks for installation.

Whoa slow down dude. They made a mistake and they will make it right for you. They always have for me.

Unfortunately it may have screwed up your timing or scheduling. Sounds like you planned on doing the install this weekend? It is not the end of the world yet and spring is still around the corner.

They will price match everything and still provide shipping and handling and really do have good customer service in my opinion. Keep that in mind if you plan on making more purchases in the future.

The will price match what is advertised, many more out there that you can get better pricing from. I would also question the person who placed this order, it would have been a simple email to ask, just my thought.
