    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, Alex here from americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you my detailed review and breakdown of the KONI STR.T strut and shock kit, fitting your 2005 through 2010 Mustang. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kit's going to appeal to, what you should be expecting in terms of performance, what you should be expecting to pay, and then we're gonna take a look at the installation. We're gonna be giving this an easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about a two to three-hour job to get these onto your car. Then we'll have a little bit more detail for you on that later. So if you're the owner of a 2005 through 2010 Mustang and your struts and shocks are on their way out, which we'll talk about a little bit later, or if you're in the process of lowering your car or just overhauling your suspension, I would definitely take a look at this kit. So before we get in the thick of the video here, guys, we're gonna talk about some common signs of strut and shock failure, and if you've owned an older mustang or even an older car, you're probably pretty familiar with what your suspension's gonna be exhibiting. So first and foremost, one of the signs of strut failure is gonna be excessive nose-diving, which is self-explanatory and it can be characterized when you get on your front brakes, you can honestly feel the front of your car literally dropping down. Now, that's not only bad for corresponding suspension components but it's actually making your front brakes work overtime, which they already are. So you're probably gonna be running through them a little bit faster than you would be under normal circumstances. So, secondly here, guys, it's gonna be a little bit more of a rocking feeling, and I don't mean being characterized as when you're tagging a pothole or going over some railroad tracks, but more of like a swing feel, which on the '05 through '10, the car's a little bit on the nose-heavy side but it does have a tendency to sway as it's gonna have a higher center of gravity. It's not only gonna make you a little bit more disconcerted driving your car but it's not gonna make you a confident driver. Now, on the flip side, if your struts are in good working order and you're just looking to lower your car, it might be a decent idea to look into a complete kit as with brand new struts and shocks that are geared towards a lowered suspension. They're gonna work hand-in-hand with each other to give you the best drive possible. Now to piggyback on what I had just said, pairing a lowering spring with your factory strut isn't the end of the world. You can definitely get away with doing it, but I honestly wouldn't suggest doing it just because if you're gonna pair one with a factory component, you're not gonna get the best driving dynamics out of your car. If you're gonna overhaul everything, it's a really decent idea to do everything at once, as you're not only gonna be lowering your car for good looks, but it's gonna make your handling that much better, which at the end of the day, it's gonna make you a lot more of a confident driver. So on the flip side, some of the premature signs you might pick up if your shocks are failing, just like the struts, it would be nose-dive but it's more characterized by a real loose end bouncing all over the place. Not only that, if they're physically leaking, it's gonna be a great time to swap them out. Last but not least here, if your shocks are failing, they're actually gonna make your tires wear prematurely, which at the end of the day, your car's rear wheel drive. You're already putting a lot of hell to the rear end. It's just gonna make you burn through your tires that much faster. So in terms of performance here, guys, swapping out your factory components for an aftermarket set-up that's gonna be geared towards being a great replacement but something that's gonna work hand-in-hand with lowering springs, you're gonna feel this right off the bat. Take a look at the reviews all over the place, even on the website right here, and you're gonna see that it is going to be night and day in terms of the feel that you're gonna get behind the wheel of your car, as well as running it through its paces. Now, that can be either on a road course, autocross or just hitting the back roads on your way home from work. So one thing I do wanna mention here, guys, is that right out of the box, these are gonna have a fixed dampening rate, which essentially means that they're not adjustable. So if you're running your '05 through '10 on a road course a lot, or if you're gonna be hitting some autocrosses, you may wanna look into a fully adjustable kit as it's gonna give you the ability to custom tailor your set-up for whichever road course or whichever parking lot you're gonna be driving in. All right, guys, so taking a quick look at the pricing here, you should expect to be spending only about 350 bucks for this kit, which in my opinion is a steal. At the end of the day, you're gonna be greatly improving your driving dynamics. And if you're gonna take it a step further and install these with a set of lowering springs, it's just gonna make your drive that much more enjoyable. On the flip side here, there's a slew of other kits out there that we have on the website and you're gonna see that they're definitely gonna run up there in terms of pricing as if they're fully adjustable or based on the brand, it will fluctuate that much higher. All right, guys, so switching gears to the installation portion of the video. Just like I had said up top, you're gonna be looking at a pretty straightforward one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about a two to three-hour job to get these onto your car. All right, guys, so I do wanna mention that this is gonna be a really quick glance at what's entailed to get these installed. A couple steps might be missing here, but this is just gonna give you a decent idea of what's gonna be necessitated to get these pulled off. And if you've ever pulled a strut out of your Mustang or any car, you shouldn't have any trouble with this. But if it's gonna be your first time doing a job like this, might be a good idea just to get a second set of hands in there as it can never hurt to have them onsite with you. All right, guys, so looking ahead, some things I'd make sure to have onsite would be a basic socket set, a breaker bar, and most importantly, a spring compressor when it comes time to pull your struts, and these can be rented pretty easily from a local part store. All right, guys, so first off, you're gonna want to get the car on a set of jack stands, pull your wheels and tires, and then you're gonna need to pull off everything in terms of your brakes. It's gonna be calipers, caliper covers, rotors, you name it, that's gonna have to come off. So after that, you're gonna want to pull your [inaudible 00:05:37] bolts out and then I'd make sure to have a separate stand underneath your A-arm, as once you drop that down, it's essentially gonna be supporting itself and you're not gonna wanna damage any of your brake lines or any other corresponding hardware when you're removing it. So after that, the strut's essentially gonna be loose from the bottom. You're gonna wanna go up top, hold the four bolts holding this into place, and a good idea is to make sure you have a hand or at least you have somebody's that's gonna have a hand on the underside just so it's not gonna drop. All right, guys, so after that, you're gonna wanna move up top and then remove the four bolts holding in your factory strut. Pro tip here. Make sure you have your hand on the underside of the strut so that once you pull that last bolt, it's not gonna fall. So moving to the back of the car, you're gonna want to get into your trunk, pull up your liner in order to access the top of the shock, and then get underneath the car, remove your two bolts, swap them back with the new shocks and you're good to go. All right, guys, so just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. If you're the '05 through 2010 Mustang owner and you're in the process of replacing your worn out or broken shocks and struts, or if you're in the process of just overhauling your suspension and lowering it, I would definitely check out this kit as it's gonna give you some of the best handling out there possible without burning a hole in your pocket. So that's my detailed review and breakdown of the KONI STR.T shock and strut kit, fitting your 2005 through 2010 Mustang, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Roughly how many miles should the Koni STR.T (orange) last? I live and drive in Southern California, so I want to know if the costs justify the length of usage that I would get from them. I drive a lot of miles out here. My work commute is currently about 80 miles round trip. Or would the KONI Sport Adjustable Shocks Struts last longer?

    • It would be difficult to gauge how long the KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit would last as the life-span of these shocks and struts will vary per user driving style.

    Helpful (1)

    How would these work with Eibach Pro's or Sportline?

    • The KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit will pair up great with any set of lowering springs. They are definitely a great way to help improve your handling and ride quality after lowering your car on a set of lowering springs. I would recommend pairing them up with the Eibach Pro-Kit Springs Item #47503 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/eibach-pro-springs-2005.html) for a nice 1.5" drop, a set of Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates Item #47024 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/maximum-motorsports-caster-camber-plates-05-07.html) to help keep the front of the car aligned properly, and a BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar - Poly/Rod - Hammertone Item #102050 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/bmr-adj-black-panhard-0514.html) to keep that rear axle centered.

      Pretty easy install struts and shocks work great

      I have a friend with a car lift so the job was pretty easy for us with the car up in the air. I would recommend having an impact wrench handy to break the OEM bolts loose. Everything was pretty straight forward with the install though we both watched a YouTube video on how to do it and what the procedure was. I also installed lowering springs so we had to remove the original springs from the rear which was a little harder due to the stiffening braces on the rear for the car frame, mine is a convertible. The car rides good haven’t had the opertunity to really push it around the corners yet. I also replaced the front strut bearings with the GT500 bearings from AM.

      Excellent Product

      Got these to replace the original FoMoCo OEM front struts and rear shocks that came on my '09 GT when it came off the line (have 144,500 miles on them so I know they're in need of replacement)…..units still had the factory code label on them! Have always liked the Koni engineering design of their struts\shocks and I've especially digged the STR.T's orange\black color scheme as well. Since I've no plans to seriously track this car I went w\ the STR.T's. Install was straightforward and fitment was spot on. Installed a set of FR GT500 upper strut mounts on the struts to take care of this part as well. After finish of install I took her out on a run to allow the new struts\shocks to settle in.....could feel a noticeable difference in feel and ride quality from the start (which is understandable since I replaced well worn OEM parts) but they just kept getting better and better the more I drove the car. Took her down a back road that has some tight turns and twisties and here is where these Koni's showed themselves as they kept the tires planted--especially the rear end--to the road w\ very little to no body roll. Control was very smooth, precise and very responsive thruout w\ no nose diving during braking…...I LIKE that! Looking forward to getting a set of performance tires in the future to really put her thru the traps! This strut\shock kit is worth every penny!

      Great Ride

      Replaced original factory shocks and struts... Yes, original from 2007.... car was bottoming out and just wasn't handling that well... The ride improvement with the KONI's is beyond expectation. Still somewhat stiff, but doesn't dive when braking. Best aftermarket purchase yet

      Great with Steeda Ultralite springs

      This kit works great when paired with Steeda Ultralite lowering springs! The dampening seems to be set just about right for this combo on my daily driver/street car and there are some rough roads I sometimes drive on. Not harsh but not bouncy. I was surprised how nice the ride turned out. I also recommend upgrading your sway bars, they make more of a difference than you realize.

      Complete Ride Quality Overhaul

      (IMPORTANT COMPATIBILITY DISCLAIMER at the end w/ TL;DR) To start, I've had the SR Performance lowering springs installed on my Stang for quite a while now but have always had them on with worn factory struts and shocks. I'll tell you, to say the ride quality was absolutely horrendous is an understatement. Any element of the road that wasn't absolutely smooth made it feel and sound like the bump stops were hitting. In comes the Koni STR.T's, these little miracle workers fly in and save the day. The suspension as a whole now is eons beyond what it was in terms of comfort and handling. The STR.T's are stiffer than the factory shocks and struts, so I cannot speak on whether someone would prefer them with stock springs. HOWEVER, with lowering springs these are a must (in hindsight). After installing the lowering springs my ride quality deteriorated drastically. After installing these, it's the closest I've been to stock ride quality. I now only feel 1 out of every 20 bumps driving down the road compared to before. These may be expensive for some people, but are WELL worth it. TL;DR (too long;didn't read): STR.T'S: - Well worth the price - A Must have if your car is lowered - DRASTICALLY improve lowered ride quality - Improves handling/nose dive ! COMPATIBILITY DISCLAIMER ! It is required when lowering for people to purchase camber adjustment parts. Lower car = more negative camber, because of this without aftermarket camber adjustment the car cannot be realigned to factory specs. This is no problem if you buy camber castor mounts, HOWEVER, if you don't have $250 and decide to go with the $35 Eibach Camber Adjustment Bolts, like yours truly, BEWARE! The Eibach bolts DO NOT FIT THROUGH! DO NOT FEAR though, there is a workaround. All that was required to get the adjustment bolts through was to drill out (bore) the hole closest to the front (of the car) that it slides into EVER SO SLIGHTLY; so once on each strut. I reccomend also sealing the exposed metal after drilling to prevent rusting. I now have no issue running the STR.T's with the Eibach Camber Bolts.

      Solid Upgrade

      Purchased these to replace a set of Salen Racing shocks and struts which I put about 70k in miles on my former daily driver. No that it’s my weekender I decided to replace them. I pairs the KONI’s with a set of Eibach Sportline Springs, Ford Performance Strut month, and SR Performance adjustable End Links which I found to be a must have for optimal sway bay position. There was a very noticeable difference in the ride quality as the car is smoother over bumps and not as hard as my prior set up. There are stiffer than stock but worth the extra stability when launching or taking fast corners. They did not come with a dust boot but your springs should include these. Install is is pretty straight forward just takes time. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a solid upgrade with bang for its buck. Shared photos
