    I was given a set of barely used shocks and struts from a 2014 GT. Will these fit on my 2006 V6? Thanks, - Curt

    Shock absorbers are cheap to build, can last tens of thousands of miles under your vehicle, and does a decent job of absorbing shocks. But they aren’t perfect. They wear out quickly, losing performance as they wear. They also aren’t the most tunable part of the suspension. It’s difficult to make...

    Hello 5.0L Tech! So I replaced my shocks, struts and springs with the Bilstein b6 and B12 Pro-Kit from Americanmuscle.com and the ride isnt nearly as soft as i thought it was going to be, granted ive only driven on it for about 30 minutes so im thinking it wont be as bad when things settle into...

    I recently bought a 2003 V6 Mustang. I like the car a lot, but the ride is uncomfortable, so I'm thinking about buying some new shocks/struts to make it more comfortable. What type of shocks or struts should I get? I'd like to be as comfortable as possible when I drive my Mustang. I've heard...

    After months of research, I finally had my appointment yesterday to lower the beast. The install went very smooth yesterday. In fact it even reduced a driveline noise (documented in another thread). Anyhow, I got the Eibach Pro-Kit springs installed with an adjustable BMR panhard bard and BMR...

    1966 Ford Mustang 289 V8 Help! I have this really bad squeak in my front end, so I decided to try and find it myself. I detached the two shock bolts from the shock tower, bounced the car up and down, and the squeak was gone. I figured it was the shocks. I got a set of KYBs, put them on, and...

    Hello all, I lowered my car about 5 months ago with the SR Performance lowering springs. I only replaced the springs & panhard bar, I left everything else stock. When I replaced the springs, the bearings fell out of the mounts but we just put them back together and re-installed them. I also...

    I took my 1998 Mustang to the shop due to a leaking manifold gasket, and while there the mechanics gave me a laundry list of undercarriage issues to deal with. I just spent a bunch of money on the engine, so I thought it best to decline the other jobs and just do the work myself. I am a...

    I was putting front shocks in my 1965 mustang and lost a bolt. What size are the threads on the bolts. I know the heads are 1/2 but that doesnt tell me the thread size

    So my friend and I installed the DSS one-piece driveshaft, Stiffler's driveshaft loop, Ford Racing 4.10 gears, and Ford Racing adjustable shocks yesterday (struts going on later this week). I've definitely noticed an increased amount of noise with the driveshaft, especially around 40 mph and...

    It's time to replace the front brakes and rear shocks after 33,000 miles. Any suggestions on aftermarket upgrades or stock replacements for both? I think I might want a firmer rider and response than stock, most noticeably up front, so struts/springs may come into play. Looking for input...

    Hey guys, I am going to Florida this Christmas and I have been back and forth on what to do with my Mustang while I am there, and I have decided lowering it is what will give me the most bang for the buck. My budget is set to 1000-1100 dollars. I made a list and plan on ordering everything from...

Basically i have a 99 gt convertible 5 speed that needs new shocks and struts, there are a tons of threads and write ups on how to do the installation and removal but all of them are for hard tops. Is there anything i need to know about...

    Looking to replace my original shocks and struts. 2005 GT pretty much stock. Hope to restore some of the lost crispness and ride quality that seems to be lacking as of late. Searched forumn and was surprised I didn't see any comparisons. Am particularly interested in any comments on: Koni...

    I currently have a 1990 Mustang GT and I need to replace the shocks this spring. I am just wondering if anyone can recommend a good model or brand that has worked well for them in the past. Thanks.

    My GT is hitting the 65K mark and I am looking to replace and upgrade the shocks and struts. It is a DD but I do take it to the strip quite a bit. I have been looking at the Strange 10 Way adjustable shock/strut combo and also the Tokico D-Specs combo. Both seem to generate favorable reviews in...

    My car was already lowered when I purchased it and it gets real bouncy when I even hit or run over the smallest bumps on the road.. I was wondering if i replaced my stock shocks and struts, will it make the ride smoother? I'm looking at these two items because mainly I'm on a budget for now...

    Hi, I have started collecting parts for the suspension on my 2012 V6 Performance Package and I'm looking for opinions and advice. So far I have UMI LCA's, UMI adjustable panard bar, Steeda sport springs and Steeda HD upper strut mounts (05-10) I'm also upgrading the shocks and struts, and...
