    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?

    JuanT

    • The Eibach Pro-Damper Shock & Struts do include bump stops as well as a dust boot/cover for both the front and the rear. The front mentions the cover and bump stop in step three and the rear mentions the bump stops and dust boots in step one.

    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

    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.

      I had 176k miles on the original shocks and struts plus I had installed Eibach sportline springs 2 years ago. So I could feel every little bump and hole in the road. Now my ride feels much smoother and my body doesn't feel like it's taking a beating. Great product!

      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.

      My last set of shocks kyb brand were horrible! I could literally have my rear bumber shake up and down 7 times with one hard push down. In two years I hope these eibach pro dampers shocks and struts remain firm. If they do, then I know the brand to remain loyal to.

      Eibach pro-damper kit review

      My car needed shocks and struts really bad and this kit did the trick. I had them installed at a local shop and I got it back the same day. As soon as I got the car back and pulled out I noticed it right away. This is probably the best thing you can do to this car. You can automatically tell a huge improvement in handling and the way it feels going down the road and over bumps.

      Surprised it wasn't better

      These are by no means bad shocks/struts. I just was expecting better. They still allow the car to wollow and don't provide the sure footed suspension feel that I was expecting. Improvement over stock, look to be a quality product. I perhaps should have gotten something more performance oriented, but they are a nice compromise for shocks that are still friendly on normal roads. Getting the nut and bushing assembly off the top was a huge time sink. If you don't have an air gun, save the time and take the struts in to a place that does. The majority of my install time was wasted trying to get the nut off, otherwise I would assume this would be an easy afternoon job with the brakes and rotors. Also, you will have to do some cutting of the old bushings to use the stock metal parts. Time consuming and tough if you don't have the right tools.

      My baby has an extra bounce in her step

      Got these to replace the stocks that were almost completely shot, as a few have said in recent reviews the spacers aren't needed but they do help even if just a little, the install was fairly easy and only took a few hours at most but the only trouble we had was that the rear shocks were seized when we went to remove them and ended up cutting through the bolt because we didn't want to waste time heating the bolt when it's quicker to cut. We used the old spacer sleeves at the top of the shocks instead of what came in the box because the ones in the box were too short. The overall ride quality has gone up drastically with it being more solid and less harsh over speed bumps/potholes and handling in corners feels much more secure. This is the first major addition to putting more life into my car.

      great upgrade

      I've got an otherwise bone stock 1998 GT with 52K original miles. I combined the install with a set of Ford Racing "B" springs and Eibach anti- sway bars. The handling is superb although there is some trade off for ride quality. One item to note though is that this kit does not include the quad shocks. You'll need to get those separately.
