Best suited struts for Sportlines?

So I installed my eibach sportlines this weekend on my 12v6. I only installed springs, an adj. pan hard bar, and camber bolts as I wanted to get some use out of the stock equipment before going aftermarket.

I am impressed with the difference just the springs made but after seeing the factory struts/shocks and mounts I'm concerned with how long they will really last so I plan on getting the rest of the setup now so I'm not waiting for it when it does blow.

The mustang is really just used to commute to work and never sees any track time so I'm not wanting to go to crazy with the shocks so I'm considering:

-Eibach pro dampers
-kyb gr2
-Tokico D-Spec
-Koni STR-T

As well I'd like to upgrade the strut mounts to camber adjustable units so I can ditch the camber bolts. When I was shopping before there was only the steeda and maximum motorsports available now I see J&M offers camber only top mounts.

These seem ideal as i dont care about caster and are much cheaper but I have not seen any reviews of their quality on them. Any experiences before I buy?

I have had the sportlines on my V6 for almost 7000 miles. Stock struts and shocks. Adjustable panhard bar and lower rear control arms. Didn't use the camber bolts, just had it aligned and it is within spec so alls good so far. You can definitely feel everything on the road which is fine for me. I do drive the car about 100 miles a day, still no issues. I plan on doing the Koni SRT struts/shocks soon but not because the OEM are getting worn out.

Koni! I have nearly the same setup you do and it's (IMO) a perfect balance between handling and comfort.

I just bought the steeda proaction shocks/struts and steeda heavy duty strut mounts. I was thinking about the str.t's but the steeda guys talked their stuff up pretty good and I wanted 2011+ strut mounts for the future.

Panhard | GT500 Axle-Backs w/Resonator Delete | Ford Racing STB | American Muscle GT500 Black Machined 18x9/10 Nitto 555
