Does anyone have the GT500 Style Strut Mount on their car does it make a big difference i need to upgrade my front struts
Where can I get a good price on them I swear AM had it for 85 now they went up I don't want to pay 110 when im getting the struts for 110 eachw4fang22 said:If you're upgrading front struts I highly suggest you get the gt500 mounts, even if you weren't upgrading struts, I'd still suggest a gt500 upgrade. The stock ones are cheap, like the base speakers in these cars.. Makes all the difference.
I heard that the GT500 strut mounts didn't mount with the eibach damper kit? I might have gotten them if I knew that.Florida3.7L said:They are worth every penny! I just installed them along with Eibach Sportline springs and the Pro-Damper kit. The stock strut mounts are so cheap and puny compared to the GT500 mounts. cjponyparts has them for $98. Here's a pic off of AM to show how stock (right) compares to the GT500 mounts (left)
That's what I thought at first too because most sites say that to use them, Ford Racing lowering springs and struts are required. Then I found reviews where people had all kinds of different setups like Eibach, Tokico, Koni, and Roush, all with the GT500 style strut mounts. If I had to guess, all that's really needed is some sort of lowering spring/strut combo because these mounts are a bit beefier compared to the stock mounts and wouldn't allow enough of the top nut to be threaded onto the struts.I heard that the GT500 strut mounts didn't mount with the eibach damper kit?
