      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys, Stephanie with, here with the review and the install of the Ford Performance Adjustable Shock and Strut Kit for 2005 to 2014 GT and GT500 Mustangs. The Ford Performance Adjustable shocks and struts can either be used with the stocks springs or with a set of lowering springs, while most other options out there are better suited to be used with lowering springs. This means that they can be paired with the stock springs for those of you out there that are looking to keep the stock ride height and ride quality, but that want a little bit more performance handling. Or they can be paired with lowering springs that have both ride height and handling performance improvements.Either way, a set of adjustable shocks and struts like this kit here, can really change the way a car handles. To be clear, of course, these shocks and struts will complement Ford's racing springs and sway bars, but to be perfectly honest, any set of adjustable shocks and struts will always compliment other supporting mods like springs and sway bars. What's nice about these is that they'll still have an impact on handling performance without the help of other supporting mods and it's really good news for those of you out there that aren't looking to run lowering springs.Ford does have some specific recommendations though if you're looking to get the most out of this kit. Your supporting mods will include a set of lowering springs, an anti-roll bar, and a strut tower brace. The exact items will change depending on if you're shopping for a GT or GT500, but the exact product numbers are listed on the product page if you're interested. These were designed to fit the 2005 to '10 GT and the '07 to '14 GT500. They will also fit the 2011 to '14 GT Mustangs if they're used with Ford performance upper strut mounts, which are sold separately. These are adjustable components and what that means is that you can adjust the rebound and dampening to make it stiffer or softer. And these are all on-car adjustable, so you can do this without having to take things apart. Your adjustment points are gonna be right here at the top. The cool thing about this is if you have a streetcar that you wanna take to the track, or the strip, or autocross with, whatever it may be, you can have one setting for street driving and another for performance driving.When it comes to price, you can expect to pay a touch over the $800 mark for these shocks and struts. For a set of adjustable shocks and struts, this is pretty close to the competition. The KONI Yellows are adjustable and are less expensive, and close in performance to this kit here so they're always an option if you don't want to spend this much.And the install here is going to be your normal shock and strut install which should take about four hours to complete. I'm gonna call this a two out of the three wrenches on the scale. You will need a spring compressor, and a lift would help you out here as well, but the job can be done on a jack and jack stands. You need to get down to the spring and strut assembly, so everything like the wheels, the brakes, and ABS lines need to be moved out of the way, so you can pull the assemblies out of the car. You have to unbolt the calipers, and slide them off the rotors, and tie them up, so they aren't hanging on the brake line. Then you can unbolt the strut at the knuckle.Next, you can unbolt the strut at the strut tower. You can then slide the strut out of the car. Once you have the fronts out, you can remove the spring from the strut. You wanna compress the new spring so you can install it onto the new strut, and bolt it down into place. Once the spring is on the strut, it's ready to be installed back into the car the same way you uninstalled your stock ones. Slide the strut into place, bolt it down at the strut tower, and then at the knuckle. After that, your calipers can be reinstalled.Once you're done with the fronts, you'll start the rears off the same way, by removing the wheel and dropping the brake system out of the way to access the factory shocks. You may need to drop the rear sway bar out of the way because it may interfere with your access to the lower shock bolt. Once you remove the rear sway bar, you'll have access, and you can unbolt the rear shock. The top bolt you'll tackle next which can be found by moving the trunk liner out the way on the bottom and the sides. You'll also support the differential housing during the next process. Then lower the jack just enough to remove the rear springs. At this point, you can reinstall the new shocks and your springs in the reverse order using the same torque spec, and you're good to go.Just remember that you will need a full alignment after the install to realign your car, and get everything back in spec. Wrapping things up here with the Ford Performance Adjustable Shock and Strut Kit. This kit fits 2005 to 2014 GT and GT500s, and you can check it out more online right here at

        Nice Upgrade

        Excellent fit and a breeze to install with the correct tools. I have it set on setting 3 (1-6) which is slightly stiffer than the stock set up. Results is slightly quicker rebound which for me, is the difference of preventing my headers from contacting speed bumps

        Super great addition to my 2005 Foose mustang GT

        I'm not sure if the struts and shocks needed replaced or not but they sure made a great difference. Pulse now when the wife ride with me i can soften the ride for her and return to the ride and handling I prefer.

        I bought my stang slammed and after a year I finally decided to do something about it. I paired these with Roush lowering springs and I love it, I have them on the 3rd stiffest setting and there’s no excessive body roll or nose diving but it’s still a comfortable ride

        On the fence

        Im on the fence with these shocks so far. As we all know these are tokico made shocks with that ford has placed there nifty ford racing stickers on, which by the way arrived half falling off as the other reviewer sighted. I hand compressed the both rear and front shocks. The rears on full stiff arent very stiff by by hand but I have yet to install these so we will see. The fronts however feel very firm by hand and it was near impossible to compress them by hand. When I tried out the adjustment feature all you do is remove the cap from the top of the shock or strut piston and insert the allen key tool and turn in either direction to increase or decrease firmness. However there is no clicks or stops in the adjustments. The screw just free turns with very little resistance. There is grease packed into the hole Im assuming to keep the adjuster screw from moving but cmon tokico and ford... for 800$ what the heck. When making adjustments to the rears and compressing by hand I can feel no difference. I was worried I may have had the wrong shocks but after checking part numbers they appear to be correct. Im hoping once on the vehicle I will be able to notice the changes in adjustment as others have claimed. I will update after giving them a try.

      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.

      I'm looking to replace my shocks. I want to maintain stock height. better yet... I'd like to raise it 1 inch. any suggestions?

      I have a 2007 Shelby GT. It came with Ford Performance Shocks and Struts, front and rear anti-sway bars, and Ford performance lowering springs. I would like to change the everyday ride to a more comfortable one, but still have the ability to return the stiffness and handling to what I have now. Will these satisfy my needs? Also should I purchase Ford Performance Jounce Bumper Kit and GT500 Strut Mount upgrade for optimum performance? Thanks.

      Does anybody make an electronic controller to adjust these Shocks and struts?

      Hey I'm new here and looking to upgrade my shocks and struts but I wanna know will these be a good replacement for my stock ones and if I were to purchase these set will I have any issue or is there something that I would have to change out and will I also have to buy a new set of strut Mounts for the new set or can I use the same ones, and also will I have to upgrade anything else or can I keep it as stock with a issue

      • This Ford Racing Adjustable Shock & Strut Kit is designed to fit on the 2005-2010 GT and 2007-2014 Shelby GT500 Mustangs. It will also fit 2011-2014 GT Mustangs when used in combination with Ford Racing Springs and M-18183-C upper strut mounts (sold separately). If you need replacement shocks and struts, these will do the trick without the need of needing to purchase anything else or modify anything for proper fitment relative to the information I lent above.
