P springs..what shocks?

I snagged a set of P springs, I don't want to go too low as this is my daily. I just wanted to firm the ride up a bit and take some of the horrible wheel gap away. I was considering using my stock shocks, but I see too many threads about them blowing out early with aftermarket springs.
I'm considering the Steeda Pro Action, but I see very few reviews about them. I like the fact I can use the stock mounts up front with them.
P spring owners, let me know what you're using and how you like them.......

Does your 12 have the Brembo Brake Package? If it does, you probably could get away with it for a reasonable amount of time. Otherwise Koni Yellows.

There's lots of guys who are running p springs with stock shocks as I am myself. To be completely honest, I think this is just perfect for me as it is. I do a fair amount of city driving with bumps and potholes. I just can't imagine driving in that type of road condition with anything stiffer which aftermarket shocks will probably do. If your driving is mostly on good roads then I say definitely look at aftermarket shocks such as koni str-t, or even adjustable version to suit your style. Just going to p springs will stiffen up your suspension noticeably. Something to think about.

I personally like my Koni Str.t with my Ford P springs. Did not really need to adjustability of the Yellows but definitely wanted to replace the stock struts and shocks.

I drove around with the P springs and stock shocks for a few months before swapping them out. I noticed my car would almost skip sideways when going over bumps. Very strange feeling. Now it feels planted to the ground and the ride is pretty comfortable for a high performance car.

Stock shocks and struts are hopeless at controlling body motions in the Mustang, let alone one that has stiffer springs. Upgrade the shocks to increase suspension control and eliminate bounce and floatiness. Koni's STR.T are a superb bang-for-the-buck option for a street driven car.

My choice would be Tokico D Specs, best ride quality and performance. For nonadjustable I would go with our own Pro Actions.
