P Springs and Tokiko D spec If I use the Ford Racing P springs and the Tokiko D spec shocks/struts will I be able to get a correct alignment? Just wondering if the D specs would work with these and if I would have to use camber bolts or not. Thanks

ninja920

  • Yes they will work, and here is a PROVEN trick for + .5 positive degrees camber...point the arrow/notch TOWARDS the engine instead of away as usual. This will most likely get you in spec. As far as the cc plates, not sure on the j&ms, but with maximum motorsports cc plates is as simple as remove the top plate,replace and you have both...probably the same with those,not sure 100%, but most companies copy each other lol ;)

Will i need to buy caster and camber plates if i use the ford racing gt500 mounts with s/r lowering springs and koni front struts.

Emitt

  • It is a good idea to get caster camber plates whenever you change the suspension of the vehicle. We also suggest getting an alignment as well. Caster camber plates will help get your car back to the perfect alignment.

Question Resolved

I live down a dirt road and my OEM strut mounts last 30k before the dust kills them, so I bought these to try out. I'm aware I need to get a set of 2005-2010 struts to go with these, but will that make the front end of my car sit higher than current? I'd like to do SR springs at the same time and lower the car all around.

CoreySimo

  • If you have a 2011-2014 GT or V6, you will need to install Ford Racing Lowering Springs and Struts. Your front end height should not be lifted with the proper parts installed. If you do plan to go with SR Springs, you will still need to get different struts. The Ford Performance GT500 Style Strut Mount Upgrade (05-14 All) will not mount correctly to 2011-2014 stock struts.

    Just Ok!

    I have a 2008 gt500 w lower set up and I just installed these struts and noise is gone but not completely, the car still having the noise when it makes close turns like U turns, I'm very sad cause that noise is very frustrating. I was advise by the shop where I installed them that those struts may work 100 on my car, I guess they were right

    Solid upgrade

    Bought a pair of these with new struts to upgrade my 2011 stock upper strut mounts. I'm surprised that Ford stopped using these as mounts for all versions of mustangs as they're clearly built a lot better than the upper strut mounts that came with my 2011 V6 mustang. Larger bearings and a lot more rubber material to absorb impacts. Can't say for sure how much they impact the ride quality because I changed other stuff at the same time but it's clear they're built a lot better. Additionally, at $100 bucks or so they don't cost much more than the stock 2011 upper strut mounts but are built much better. It's a really good value upgrade

    After slamming my car a full two inches and installing thicker diameter GT500 sway bars, my 07 mustang developed a loud clunk coming from the shock towers. me and my 13 year old brother installed them in about 2 and a half hours and after that the car rides much quieter and doesnt sound like its falling apart. definitely reccomend if you're gonna lower your car or if you have a front end clunk

    heavy duty upgrade at an affordable price.

    The GT500 strut mounts allowed me to install a set of Tokiko D-spec struts and shocks that I had on a 2007 Mustang GT, on my 2012 Mustang GT, without spending more money for caster/camber plates. I also used camber bolts to correct alignment after installing lowering springs.

    Well worth the money

    I just recently installed the Eibach Sway Bar kit this past summer and OMG the ride quality was soooo terrible words cannot describe. It handled amazingly however at such an impractical cost. Everything under the car can be felt up front and it was so noisy and clunky, it almost felt like my car was falling apart. Hate to imagine what it would of felt like if I lowered it too. THEN I saw these babies on sale for such a cheap price and the other guys review. Had them installed this past weekend and what joy it is to drive the car again. The rough ride and clunky sounds were almost completely eliminated and made the car much more stable. Its been raining so I cant state how much of a handling gain these offered but I mainly bought them to hush my front end suspension which it did very well. Shop install was a little over 200 including taxes which is for about 2 hours of labor. I'm sure anybody could do these though with proper tools and some time. At this price, you can't go wrong with these. They honestly are the ultimate solution to clunky front ends. If you lowered your car youll deff feel a ride quality difference in these even stock ride heights with minor suspension upgrades like mine will benefit as well.

    together with Eibach pro handling kit...

    My stock mounts were completely broken after 80000 miles. The ball bearing fell apart when we disassembled the old struts. If you think about lowering your car with new springs and struts, get these mounts and you will not even need the spring compressors which makes the installation quite easy and fast.

    Replace those OEM strut mounts!

    If you are going to do SERIOUS track time, I'd go with strut mounts that you can adjust the camber on. These are just excellent replacments for those OEM strut mounts and worked perfectly for me when installing racing springs on replacement struts. Well made, excellent finish.

    Don't expect big changes installing this mounts, unless the old ones were completely broken. Is always good idea to change the mounts if you change struts, but I frankly didn't see nor feel any difference.

    No noticeable difference

    I bought these strut mounts in an attempt to fix the clunking I have from my front suspension due to the poor design from Ford in 2005. Unfortunately, my car still clunks. In terms of handling I don't notice any difference when compared to my stock mounts with 90,000 miles on them. I'm sure these mounts do what their supposed to, but in my case they didn't fix the problem. I can't hold that against the GT500 mounts. I just can't recommend them since I gained nothing in the end. Your experience may vary.

    opens possibilities for your suspension

    not many companies make a strut specific for 10+ cars. this allows you to use a front strut from a 05-09 and gives you greater selection for your suspension setup.

    Great handling

    I put these strut mounts on my '05 GT after upgrading my suspension with some Bilstein shocks and struts. What a difference it made! The front end was making a lot of noise, getting very clunky with lots of popping noises when steering at low speeds. These strut mounts smoothed everything out and gave much better road feel. It's amazing how much more fun the car is to drive all of a sudden. Highly recommended.

    05-10 gt500 style strut mounts

    A must have if using 05-10 style/spec front struts on a 2011 or new s197. The stock 2011-14 stock mounts are ONE TIME USE ONLY! I installed these with the koni srt.t's and SR springs and couldn't be happier. These mounts a lot heavier duty than the stock mounts and do what there supposed to do! I have the springs installed a few months before installing the 05-10 mounts and struts. After installing the new mounts and struts the car sat about another 0.5 inches lower in the front?? I have a few friends with 2011 and newer cars with similar set ups and noticed the same 0.5 inch drop as well after the springs settle in. We all think there's a slight difference in height between the stock struts and mounts verse the 05-10 spec koni's and 05-10 mounts on 2011-14 cars. Either way the stance is KILLER and the ride quality is GREAT! And the car handles like a DREAM!!!!

    I'm somewhat iffy on these

    I needed new Strut mounts because I lowered the car using SR Performance Lowering springs, and because I kept reading that the clunk in the front end would be gone after putting these on. They didn't work at all, they seem almost exactly like stock. Not really anyone's fault but my own that the clunk is there, but I'm hoping that when I finally add struts and dampers that the clunk will finally go away.

    Played with the rules a bit...

    I found myself in a bit of a jam by not paying attention when ordering suspension parts. I bought the 2011 GT Eibach sport line lowering kit, and the 2010 J&M adjustable caster camber plates, which won't work... The threaded area on the 2011 struts is too short and there is no reusable bushing from the old factory strut plate... I used the bushing from the GT500 plates on the J&M plates and it worked perfectly... The longer of the two adapters for the J&M plates had to be cut down, but otherwise, a solid solution to my issue... Moral of the story is order your parts carefully.

    One of my stock pieces had failed with less than 40,000 miles on it and these were the ideal replacement since I didn't want to put on adjustable plates. No more clunk clunk clunk...... With the right tools these can be installed in 2-3 hours pretty easily.

    Get rid of the Stock struts and get the reliable GT500 strut mounts

    When I lowered my car with Steeda springs, STR.T Shocks and struts, and much more, I used the isolators from these mounts along with the J&M adjustable caster/camber plates from AM and man what a difference. I'm hitting corners on a rail. When lowering your car, and using shocks/struts that are for 2005-2010 model these are a must. Improve the weak stock strut mounts and get a more reliable mount. You will not regret.
