From my reading, if you install the mounts 180 degrees from the correct way, you gain camber so then you wouldn't need the camber bolts. I think this is what Grabber meant by "correct way". Not sure why you wouldn't come out and say it. Then again, I'm not sure why my reply to the strut tower thread ended up on this thread (#26, sorry TJ!)


Don't think you can go wrong with Koni or Steeda.

You V8 owners are sure a "STRANGE" and "WHINEY" bunch.

1) You will pay $5,000 more for a V8 Premium but act like you have been shot in the rear, when you have to put in 8 quarts of oil.

2) Instead of using the using parts that are for your particular model (Struts, Shocks and Mounts), 2011 GT, you put on parts for a 05-10 GT Mustang. The money you save might not be worth it. You can bet if you have a part failure and are in a very bad accident, Ford will be looking at the car. Once they find out you don’t have the proper parts installed, they will deny any claim for a part failure. You own insurance company will also be off of the hook.

3) You “Whine” on how much better the V8s sound but one of the first things you do is gut the factory exhaust system.

Yep, a "STRANGE" bunch.

Dude, I haven't said anything about your erratic posts but I think I'm finally going to have to.

You should stop and read your posts before you hit the submit button. Your comments are so far off sometimes I wonder if you are drunk when you post. Seriously man. You are an angry, cranky dude. Your comments never ad value.

Running 05-10 struts will do nothing. Maybe if you had any experience with them you could comment. Until then maybe just keep to yourself.

Says the owner of a V6 that's done everything to make it anything but a V6. Lol, you have some good points but insurance claims and warranty claims denied? If the part is proven to be the factor that caused failure. Very doubtful if it's a Ford part. Don't want to hijack the awesome thread and get off on a tangent though.

Rides like it's on rails with 255/285 tires. No more nose dive when braking! Plenty of drop without being slammed and all of the associated problems. Completely happy with Steeda springs!

Did the 05-09 with GT500 mounts as well.

Dude you have more mods on your V6 than I can even read from that sig... Probably more than the "$5k premium" for the V8 and the stock V8 will still wreck your ride in a race.

Not to mention that the GT500 struts are a performance upgrade and they are OEM.

1) Nope, all mods are listed, although I don't have any room for future mods.

2) Didn't buy the car for racing. Never been on a drag strip or road track with it. I have however, been really close to a drag strip. Of course that would be in 2014 and 2015, at the American Muscle Car Show.

Add value.

Don't drink.

Last time I checked this was a FORUM. Which means I can express my opinions on here.

You are right it is a public forum. And people are allowed to disagree.


Keep it civil as it states in the ToS we all agreed to when we signed up.

Hey Red - Drop me a line and I'm happy to cover the shipping back on these. Believe me I know it's a pain to have the car apart only to need to button it back up for something that pops up like this. I can see TJ's getting you some help.

Grabber - If there's profanity or if someone goes on a..tirade, polemic, fulmination, for example the review wont get posted as it doesn't pertain to the part itself.

I've seen negative reviews in the past on them as well but they've since changed manufacturers. If you're ever looking for reviews filter them by the rating. See below.






Hope this helps guys.

I find it helpful to see some bad reviews but you also need to read them. A while back my Love and I did a big trip including the Grand Canyon. We booked a rafting trip and overall Trip Adviser folks had good reviews but I like to look at the bad ones...besides the few where the company messed up their reservations and an understandable mistake/bad review there were two "terrible" reviews one complained that the river was too cold, the other mentioned the sun was too hot and they got sunburned.

I've never ridden in a car on rails. What's that like? Do you work for the railroad? I know their maintenance trucks ride on the rails.

A V8 Mustang will always sound better than a V6 Mustang. Doesn't matter if it's the stock exhaust, aftermarket exhaust, or a couple coffee cans as mufflers. And running '05-'10 struts with GT500 mounts is perfectly safe, if not safer than the factory setup. I've never seen anybody on here complain about 8 quarts of oil, not sure what that's all about

I'd just like to point out that the only difference between the 05-10 and 11-14 struts is the length of the threaded portion at the top of the strut.

Buying 8 quarts for an oil change sucks

GT500 Strut mounts don't work on stock struts?

8 quarts isn't bad at all.
