Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with these Eibach Pro-Damper Shocks and Struts for '79 to '04 V8s, minus the '99 to '04 Cobras and the '94 to '04 V6 Mustangs. And we're gonna go over the benefits that these offer, how much they cost, and what things are looking like install-wise. And I can tell you right now that I'm going to rate these as a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. The Pro-Damper Shocks and Struts are going to be a good option for anyone looking for a set of shocks and struts to work with a set of Eibach's lowering springs and sway bars. When you start doing handling upgrades, you want to make sure that all of the components are gonna work together, and shocks and struts are gonna work very closely with the lowering springs. There are a few different shock and strut kits on the site, but usually you want to make sure that your setup is designed for the performance that you want. So while these will work with other lowering springs, they'll work best with Eibach components. Across the board, I'd say that the factory suspension is set up more for having a comfortable ride quality and being easy to drive than anything else. Now that means that there's a lot of room for improvement in the minds of some. If you have a performance-based mind, you probably want something more than comfortable. You're gonna want effective, which leads you to upgrades like lowering springs. Where you can run into issues is if you leave a component out, and if you upgrade lowering springs you really need to also looks into new shocks and struts that are designed to work with lowering springs like these Pro-Dampers are. If you don't, you're gonna be missing out on the full effectiveness of the springs and on some ride quality. Now a lot of times you can get away with running your stock components if they're not already blown, or they don't have high miles on them, at least for a little while, anyway. You're not gonna to be damaging anything, per se. Maybe not getting the best results, but you're not ruining anything besides the shocks and struts themselves, you'll be shortening their lives. What it comes down to is the fact that the internals are not set up to take the abuse of the lowered ride height. These, however, are. They're made to take full advantage of the increased spring rate in the Eibach after market springs, and the lower center of gravity that the springs will create. These are tuned, which means that dampening characteristics have been changed to work with lowering springs, and so that they can be a high performance shock and strut without having to be overly harsh. Taking a step back for a second, usually in order to get better suspension performance you need to take away some ride quality. You need to make things stiffer so they perform better, which means no more flexible components like soft rubber bushings or components that allow for twisting. Taking away too much comfort, however, leads to a large amount of NVH and a harsh and uncomfortable ride. The goal tends to be finding the middle, where you have parts that will perform but won't give you too much of an uncomfortable ride quality, and that's where Eibach places these shocks and struts when paired with their lowering springs and their sway bars. They're made to give you the best of both worlds between comfortable and functional. When it comes to price, you can expect to spend just over $400 for the set. This is pretty much right in the middle of the road for price. You can find a stuff that costs a little bit less and a little bit more, and you can purchase individual pieces if you want to as well. But I will say that these are specifically designed and tuned to work with the spring rates of Eibach's lowering springs, so you're gonna get the best results from these suspension upgrades if you pair them correctly. So the install here is a lot of work, but I wouldn't say that it's a difficult install. It's all straightforward and you won't need any tools out of the ordinary, besides the spring compressor for your springs. These do fit a wide range of Mustangs, but the install will be nearly the same. You need an assortment of different sockets and wrenches, and if you decide to tackle this yourself you can expect to spend about two hours. Wrapping things up here, the Eiback Pro-Damper Shocks and Struts are specifically designed to work with Eibach's lowering springs and sway bars to make for a nice handling package. These shocks and struts are precision-tuned to be effective without providing a harsh ride quality. And, as always, I suggest you check this kit out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improves Handling. Eibach developed their Pro-Damper shocks and struts to complement their Pro-Kit and Sportline springs, taking full advantage of the increased spring rate and lower center of gravity. The end result is an improvement in handling and performance, with a controlled compliant Ride.

Precision Tuning. Eibach engineers precision tune the Pro-Damper shocks damping characteristics to achieve maximum performance, without unnecessary stiffness or ride harshness for use with the Pro-Kit and Sportline springs. Eibach Pro-Damper Shock Absorbers are truly the pinnacle of shock absorber technology.

3 Steps to Handling Performance. The Pro-Damper Shock Absorbers are an essential part of Eibachs Three Step's to improve your Mustangs performance and handling. Step One - Pro-Kit or Sport-Line Springs. Step Two - Pro-Damper Shock Absorbers. And Step Three Anti-Roll Kit. When combined together your Pony will achieve Super Street Performance without sacrificing ride quality.

Can you use a different brand of springs? I bought some new springs a while back, and I'm wanting to get some new shocks and struts. I saw that these are specially designed for the eibach lowering springs, so I was wondering if these would work because the new springs didn't lower it much.

Ryan1212

  • Although Eibach sets up their shocks to work best with their other products, using a different manufacturer's springs will not hinder them from doing a great job! You should not experience any problems mixing.

What bump stops are for the rear and which ones are for the front? And is the dust boot included for the rear struts or the front struts?

What lowering springs should I get with these?

Anonymous

  • If you are looking to purchase lowering springs to work with these shocks and struts, I would recommend purchasing some of the Eibach Pro-Kit springs which are item #47500 on our site as these springs are made for those shocks and struts.

Hi, I have SR lowering springs ( 1,5") and SR caster camber plates. installed on my Mustang GT 01. I am thinking of installing these dampers. Will it fit on my car ?, i am most concerned about the caster camber plates. Best regards Patrik

Patrik

  • Yes, these are compatible with what you have going on. You would have no problem with this setup.

do these shock and struts reduce bouncing?

AmGT

  • Yes this kit will reduce bouncing (after hitting a bum)p and aid in stability when cornering - when coupled with lowering springs, the lower center of gravity will also help dramatically in corners, launching, stopping, and over-all handing. I installed the kit on a 2006 GT and the difference from stick shocks/struts was incredible.

    Easy To Change Out

    This is a easy to use replacement kit for the existing shocks and struts. One thing to be aware of is the extra shims that comes with the kit for the front end struts. The additional shims were overlooked until after installing the first strut. But the installation was very easily for a novice to undertake.

    What a Difference

    I bought my 98 GT and it was dropped with Eibach Sportline Springs yet the dummy never upgraded the shocks and struts. Bought these and put them. Made a big difference. Matches up with the eibach springs perfectly. Must have if your car is dropped.

    Eibach Pro-Damper Shock & Struts Rock!

    The Eibach Pro-Damper Kit gives you ALMOST everything you need for a clean install. The only issue was that the instructions included are not overly clear. I did see another review that mentioned pretty much the same thing. It was a bit of a guessing game with the bump stops and the two shock boots. To help you guys out, I will pass this on directly from Eibach: 1. you don't need to trim bump stops to match your factory ones, they will be twice as long 2. the boots fit on the back shocks, not the front struts. Other then that, they are fantastic. Awesome ride and handling improvements/

    No guts no glory!

    I bought these and actually installed them myself which saved me about $500 bucks. They now compliment my Eibach Sportline springs and trust me this kit rocks! Say goodbye to nose dive, body roll is severely reduced and the ride quality is firm but comfortable. I love this kit! I can\'t wait till I get my sway bars to complete the ensemble.

    Expected better

    Looks like Im the unfortunate one here but these shocks and struts went bad about 3 or 4 months after installment. I have again, a squeaky suspension. Any bump or hole (big or small) I go over, it squeaks bad. I checked it myself along with 3 other mechanics and they all said these shocks and struts is whats causing the squeaky suspension. Ball joints and bushings were in great shape so this was the only thing left.

    Better option that stock replacements

    Having issues with vibrations from road affecting handling. Ford dealer recommended replacing the original shocks and struts as had over 60,000 miles on them. Compared pricing of the Eibach Pro Dampers to Ford OEM and found I could get these performance shocks and struts for about the same cost. No-brainer..went with Eibach. Had them professionally installed. Feel it lessened the problems i am having with handling but may need to do more upgrades.

    An easy replacement, but do read the installation paper work. Lay out the parts involved matching them to the correct front or rear shock. Watch for the correct rebound pad to shock placement.

    great shocks, must if lowered

    since no one has reviewed these i figured i should. first off, if you\'ve lowered your car you want these, the shorter shocks/struts will last you longer as they are engineered for the lower ride hight and will handle better for that same reason. you cant go wrong with eibach, and these coupled with thier prokit springs is a killer set up and i highly recomend it to anyone who\'s interested in dropping their car the right way, stock size shocks are not good when lowered. am\'s price isn\'t too bad either.
