I installed the koni yellows, eibach sportlines, jandm caster camber plates and pan hard bar and the mixture of all of them are great! On the softest setting the ride quality was just like stock with huge handling improvements. Going on on ramps I feel like the car is on rails. Very impressed with the adjustability in these shocks and struts.Helpful (6)

Great shocks and Struts
Koni Sport Adjustable is a great choice if you really want to feel the road. I have these set in the middle, which is not suitable for everyone, but I love it. I also had 410 gears, lower control arms, and Panhard bar. More suspension Improvements are coming. It’s not a GT but it’s fun. I went to buy a GT and wound up with a Roush DUB , not stock.Helpful (6)

Nice improvement to ride quality, but concerned
Great improvement to ride quality over OEM shocks and struts. Concerned that original lower mounting hardware on received struts fell apart when local auto shop was performing installation. Replacement mounting kits had to be ordered so that installation could be completed. Concerned about if any other issues will occur down the road, only time will tell.Helpful (6)

Great shocks and struts
I paired these with the Eibach sport line springs and love the way the car handles now. I have them adjusted half way right now and it is definitely much stiffer than the track pack shocks and struts I had with ford racing k springs. There is noticeably less squat and less bounce. The car is still fairly smooth on rough roads.Helpful (7)

Great upgrade for improving handling
These dampers immediately changed the feeling of the car for the better. You never really realize how much body roll and bounce the stock dampers impart into the car until you swap them out with something like this. With the stock dampers, when I took hard turns the entire car seemed to roll and pitch into the turn and shift its weight over the entire course of the turn. This made the car feel very loose in the corners, and hard turns were very unpredictable because the weight transfer was all over the place. Depending on how you started the turn, the weight wouldn't 'settle' for a while and would make it almost impossible to predict how the car was going to react. These dampers really help to eliminate that uncertainty. Now the car feels firmly planted during hard turns and is much more stable. I can't describe it very well, but with the new dampers the removal of the weight transfer uncertainty makes it much easier to focus on the traction that you have instead of the pitch and yaw of the body as you make turns. Before, because the stock dampers had so much bounce and rebound, the car would let go seemingly at random during hard turns. One moment you had great traction, the next the wheels are slipping and you were never really sure why. The additional movement of the body in the turn made it really difficult to accurately judge the forces on the car, so you'd end up pushing further and harder than you thought you were. With these dampers, the body feels locked in place, so you can tell with great certainty when the car itself is at its limits. The wheels no longer 'let go' on you without warning, and with a little practice you can very easily tell when you're at your traction limit. Adjusting them is extremely simple. They come with adjustment knobs (the front and rears are different, so make sure you keep at least one of each). You can adjust them on the car without removing or unscrewing anything. Pop the hood for the fronts, pop the trunk and pull the carpet out of the way for the rears. You can adjust all 4 dampers in less than 5 minutes. The adjustment range is 720* (2 full rotations). They come at full-soft from the factory, I currently have mine at 360* (one full turn) in both front and rear. Full-firm should probably only be used on a track because the ride is so firm that on a bumpy highway there is a very real risk that you'll go airborne. Full soft is still firmer than the factory suspension, but not unpleasant. Overall, the adjustability range is large enough that you will likely not find yourself thinking that it doesn't get soft enough or firm enough, which is great. At my setting of one full turn, the ride is 'harsh' but not too unpleasant. I probably wouldn't use that setting when driving other people around but just for me I like it. Ford has done a great job constantly updating and improving the performance on the engine for our cars, but the suspension has been a little neglected, and it really shows with a 420hp car. These dampers are a huge improvement over stock, and they really change the driving dynamics of the car for the better. A common theme in most of the reviews I read is 'these are the dampers that should have come from the factory,' and from a purely performance standpoint I'm inclined to agree with that. These dampers make it feel like you're driving a different car, and their adjustability allows you to dial in whatever setting you want to make the car handle exactly the way you want. They're expensive, but I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to improve the handling characteristics of their Mustang.Helpful (14)

Awesome control on the street and track
On the softer setting these shocks/struts are much better than stock and then you can quickly adjust them for the track. Awesome!Helpful (7)

The wisdom to choose Koni
The question you might ask yourself is..... Can I buy cheaper shocks and struts that will work as well as these Koni's? I don't know, maybe... But with my 65 years of owning , driving, and using various brands of shocks, I can tell you quality and performance that lasts always comes at a higher cost. Why? because the internal components and engineering are not compromised when Koni builds their shocks. The moment I rolled out of my garage and hit the first bump in the road I felt a rock solid car underneath me for the first time. With shocks left on full soft as they come from Koni, the body control and motion dampening was significantly firmer. Gone was the bobbing and wallowing motions. Any dip or bump was met with instantaneous rebound damping that was sorely lacking in the factory shocks. I do not know anything about the internal design of these shocks but i can tell you its obvious the valving is velocity of movement sensitive. Fast shock movements result in high dampening. Yes, the ride is compromised especially on a rough road, but you can really drive and control the car at will. My set up is a 2012 mustang v-6 with Eibach pro spring kit, Whiteline panhard bar, and Ford Boss 302 shock tower brace. The transformation from stock is amazing and I now drive a true sports car that can handle better than most cars on the road. My car is a daily driver so i now consider my mandatory suspension mods finished. Oh I almost forgot, I painted the Koni's semi gloss black before installing them so they matched the black Eibach springs, so they look stock under the car. In summary if you want shocks that will work and give you superior dampening, then these Koni's are an excellent choice. If you are looking for a soft smooth ride then maybe you are driving the wrong car! Make your Mustang gallop and corner with Koni !Helpful (11)
How hard/easy is it to adjust these while on the car? Also will they work with rtr lowering springs?
The KONI Sport Adjustable Shock & Strut Kit can be easily adjusted on car via the adjustment knobs used at the top of the shocks and struts.
Does this kit bring dust guards?
The KONI Sport Adjustable Shock and Strut Kit will include dust guard sleeves for the rear, but will not include any type of cover for the front struts.
I have heard there have been squeak issues with the rear shocks. Any advice on what to do if this happens
The KONI Sport Adjustable Shock & Strut Kit should not make any noise. Though, if it does happen, you can replace the bushings with a softer compound. This will get rid of any noise.
Hi will I be able to use these with the gt500 strut mounts?
Hello! The Ford Performance GT500 Style Strut Mount will only work with Ford Racing lowering springs and struts/shocks.
How will these do on a 1/4 mile car?
These will be a good addition to a quarter mile car over non-adjustable shocks and struts because you can fine tune the Mustang to ride the way you want it. For example: you can make the rears as stiff as possible while making the front's soft so the vehicle can plant better. You would not have that ability in non-adjustable suspension modifications.
Yes, these shocks and struts are designed for use with lowering springs or stock springs.
Hi, You can reuse the stock mounts as long as they are in good shape with this KONI Sport Adjustable Shock & Strut Kit.
I personally installed Eibach springs that droppd my car about one inch. I reused the stock strut mounts with no issue. I later added the Koni shocks and still retained the stock strut mounts. The camber did not change so I did not touch the alignment. Some negative camber is normal with some toe in. I checked the camber with a standard bubble level braced against the sidewall of the tire before I changed the springs and then I rechecked afterwards. There was no measureable change. Tires still wear straight across with no edge feathering so toe is good, and was checked with a tape measure to be sure. Track bar is a necessary change to center the rear end. I recommend the whiteline bar . Nothing else is needed. I bought Eibach adjustable camber bolts just in case...but did not need to install them.
