That should teach me to do my research

I'd heard that the GT500 strut mounts were a big upgrade over the stock GT ones... so I bought a set from a private seller... nothing wrong with them, they're in good shape, but guess what? They're identical to the ones I already have. As it turns out, from 07 and up ford already put in the upgraded GT500 mounts. Same part number and everything.

So... anyone with an 05 or 06 want to upgrade their strut mounts?

This wasn't meant as a selling ad, I'll put it in that section when I really want to sell them.

Odd, mine were different part number than the gt500 I upgraded to. I have a very late 07 gt premium. Think the studs on the gt500 are painted green instead of yellow on the top for another quick ID. What part number did you take off? Are you sure you did not get stock gt mounts as replacements?

I am not sure about compatibility with the gt500 mounts and stock/aftermarket gt struts tho. I have gt500 struts/steeda ultralite springs and gt500 swaybars and have not tried the gt500 mounts on the stock struts.
