Amazing Shocks and Struts

I was using the Tokico D-Spec shock and strut kit and swapped those out with this kit. I am very happy that I did too. This kit is the Ford Racing SVT Cobra kit which is also co-manufactured by Tokico

Will Eibach Sportline springs work with these? I very much like the idea of having adjustable shocks and struts, but these are the only ones you seem to have for a '12 Mustang.

  • I have a 2011 GT with Brembo Package. I have Eibach sportline springs and sway bars installed. I recently added the Eibach Pro-damper kit, but I did not like the ride or the noise they made. I just had the Ford Racing Adj. Shock & strut kit installed. Much better ride and no noises from the front end. I spoke with Ford racing about the install and the use of the Eibach springs. They said as long as the springs were the same drop as the Ford K-springs(1.5 inch), you will be fine. You will need the Ford Racing GT500 STrut Mounts to mount the Ford Racing front struts, part # M-18183-C. Very Pleased.

Can someone describe the two-way response and adjustability? These are single adjustable, but each adjustment can affect the compression and rebound independently achieving the desired damping? More information on how these work is appreciated.

  • Hello darreng505, to answer your question let's look at the scale of adjustment...hypothetically let's say the scale has 10 adjustments, 1 being like mashed potatoes & 10 like concrete. If 1 is like mashed potatoes, when the piston runs through the gas on a bump and bottoms out, the rebound is an opposite but equal movement, so it will run the same distance in the other direction. The single adjustment makes for an easy task of adjusting the ride. If you start at adjustment 5 & try the ride you can go one up for a more aggressive (stiffer) shock, try the ride, and if that isn't comfortable for you, go to 4 for a smoother ride. It may take a few times, but you are the Captain of your ship, adjust it until you're satisfied...

    Amazing Shocks and Struts

    I was using the Tokico D-Spec shock and strut kit and swapped those out with this kit. I am very happy that I did too. This kit is the Ford Racing SVT Cobra kit which is also co-manufactured by Tokico with many improvements from the D-Spec design. They are keyed like the D-Specs but the cylinder location is deeper in the front struts so it comes with a longer key for that purpose. The ride quality is much better than the D-Spec and that is amazing to me. I used these in combination with Ford K springs and the Ford Racing lower control arms. What an improvement this technology is over stock. Simply amazing.

    So my 07 GT had 100k on it and needed shocks and struts. I chose these for the adjustability. All I can say is WOW!!! Why did I wait so long. I put them on full soft and this car is so comfortable. I drive 100 miles a day round trip for work. The car is so much more comfy. Make a couple adjustments and now the car drives like a race car. This is a must purchase if your ready for shocks

    Great product

    After 80K miles on the stock suspension it was way past time to upgrade! I was unable to get the Tokicos (which these are based off anyway) and didn't want to go with something that didn't have the ability to be adjusted. Previous reviews were very favorable and I decided to give these a try. Also decided not to drop it at this time and used the stock springs. I'm three weeks in and couldn't be happier. The car drives so much better and eats up rough road like it should. I drove on full hard for a couple days and decided that was too rough for daily driving. I stepped down 2 turns and noticed a difference in rebound right away, however still a little rough for the roads in my area. I tried another 2 turns and it was much softer...almost too soft for my driving style. I'm still trying to find the sweet spot, but somewhere around 3-4 turns to soft is about right. In addition to the shocks/struts I also added the Ford Racing sway bar kit and rear lower control arms which helped with ride quality as well. I'm still getting some noise out of the front end which I originally attributed to the overall weakness of the stock suspension, however now I believe it to be the front control arms, specifically the ball joint. I plan on replacing those this weekend and will leave a separate review on the Ford Racing front lower control arms afterwards. After that I'm hoping my car feels better than new and it holds me off from buying a Boss or GT500 anytime soon! Overall I'm very satisfied with this setup and would definitely recommend it.

    Ford Racing Adjustable shock and strut

    These reduced wheel hop out of the hole, and gave the car more confidence in all turns. Vey easy to install on a 2013 GT with the GT500 strut mounts and K-springs. They did come with theTokiko D-Spec instructions, so I'm not sure if they are the same thing or not. The D-specs are almost half price if they are the same thing. Anyway, I love them!!!!

    Blue DSpecs?

    These are really nice dampers. The adjustment is easy and half turns are noticeable. The ride quality is great. They did come with DSpec instructions and adjustment tool, so I'm wondering if the big difference isn't the color. Regardless, they work well with FRPP springs, and sway bars.

    M-18000-C: The stance you want!

    I essentially had the M-FR3-MSVTA performance kit put on my 2011 Shelby GT500. The installation took less than 8 hours to complete everything. However, you will need an alignment if you opt to hone out the pre-drilled bolt guide (to the specs of the manufacture) so that camber could be added to the front end. This mill work will also require additional hardware (bolts) to complete the modification. I love the stance of the car and it corners like a rocket now!
