Fitment with SR lowering springs and struts? Do these strut mounts work well with SR lowering springs? Also will I need to upgrade my struts to eliminate that annoying front end popping sound after car is lowered?

  • Your OEM struts are not the problem regarding the popping. Your MOUNTS are the problem. These mounts have high grade ball bearings, and the insulators fit the springs perfectly, which the OEM mounts don't. Not only will the SR springs fit the mounts, you can keep your stock struts, and use the mount and springs together. I fitted this mount with Ford M-5300-P springs, and it is ultra quiet under all conditions, and the steering is smooth as glass. THE PROBLEMS ARE NOT THE SPRINGS (LOWERED OR NOT), NOR IS IT THE STRUTS. IT IS THE STOCK MOUNTS. THEY ARE JUNK. GET A PAIR, AND YOU WILL REALLY LIKE IT.

strut/shock With 2014 Mustang V6, can I install Koni STR.T struts with Ford Racing GT500 style strut mounts with still using stock factory springs, or do I need to also replace the springs now as well?

  • Honestly all springs are the same, just different spring rates so yes...all a cobra jet spring set is is GT front springs, v6 rear springs and are shorter lol. On my drag car gt500 I'm running lakewood drag struts (90/10)and shocks (50/50)with BMR 1" lowering springs for a gt up front, viking performance coilovers with adjustable perches rear( pretty much a v6 spring rate, made it softer in the rear to make my slicks stick! But yes no problems at all a V6, GT and GT500 spring are all the same, just different spring rates, but they ALL are made the same way...

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

  • 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 ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
