    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with an overview of the KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit for 2011 to 2014 GT, V6, and Boss Mustangs. In this video, we're gonna over a few topics when it comes to this shock and strut kit. We're gonna talk about the benefits of this kit, the performance you can expect from the kit, and we're also gonna talk about the install as well. I'll get into more detail with the install later, but I can tell you right now that the install for this is going to be a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit is gonna be for the S197 owners out there that are looking for entry-level performance from a nonadjustable shock and strut setup. This kit would be a good option for you if you're looking for an OE replacement, or they can complement a set of lowering springs, or if you're looking for a smaller upgrade and you're on a budget. Now, I say that about lower springs because, usually, when you lower your car with set of springs, you also shop for shocks and struts. If you run your stock shocks and struts with lowering springs, they'll not only wear out the shocks and struts faster, but you also won't get the most performance or the best ride quality from the springs. Shocks and struts like the STR.Ts here are more capable of working better with a lowering spring because they're designed to work with a firmer spring rate and lowered ride height. So it's nice that this kit'll work in both cases, whether you're just looking for a stock upgrade replacement, or you're looking for something that'll work with lowering springs. These are considered the entry-level kit. These are the KONI Orange, which is one step below the KONI Sports or the KONI Yellows. Even though this is an entry-level kit, you are still getting a bump in performance over your stock components. Now, while these are performance oriented, you aren't getting the most performance-based kit with these here, either. These are nonadjustable, as opposed to an adjustable option that you have. That means that they have a fixed damping rate, and these have a standard twin tube gas pressure design and a steel body. But like I said, these are still upgrades over the factory shocks and struts. When it comes to price, you're looking at spending just south of $500 for this kit. Now if you're just looking for a basic set of shocks and struts and you're really on a budget, there are some other options on the site that are even less expensive, but just know that the KONIs here have been around for decades, so they're tested, proven, and reliable. The install here is gonna be your normal shock and strut install that should take about four hours to complete. I'm gonna call this a two out of three wrenches on the scale. You need a spring compressor and a lift would help you out here as well, but the job can be done with a jack and jack stands. You're gonna need to get down to the spring strut assemblies, so everything like the wheels, the brakes, the ABS lines will need to be moved out of the way so you can pull the assemblies out of the car. A spring compressor will help you remove the spring from the strut and install the new front struts, which install the same way that the factory struts came out. The install's the same for both sides. The rear is where things are a little bit different, but it's nothing crazy here. Just like the front, the rear springs and shocks install the same way that they were uninstalled. No surprises here. Once that's done, you can bolt everything back up and you're ready to go. Wrapping things up here with the KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit. This is KONI's entry-level kit, but it's still gonna offer performance benefits over the factory components. This can work as a factory upgrade replacement, or it'll work with a set of lowering springs to give you better handling performance. You can check this kit out more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Will these work with the Ford performance K Springs?

    • They are not compatible with the Ford Performance Lowering K-Springs (item 24022), as the springs will only fit 2011 and newer GT Coupes when used in combination with Ford Racing M-18183-C upper strut mounts and M-18000-A dampers.

      Good quality but no bushings with the kit

      The appearance and quality of the struts/shocks is great but the kit didn’t come with new rear bushing but other than that great product!

      Handles like a new car again

      Got these to replace the worn out factory shocks and struts. No surprise that the car handles and rides much better now. Had some problems getting the nuts loose, but otherwise the installation was pretty straightforward.

      Perfect daily upgrade

      If you don't want or need a shock and strut upgrade that is adjustable (track use) but still want to eliminate body roll, this is a fantastic option. Ride quality improves (when paired with SR or Steeda springs) as well!

      Koni strt

      I just did a huge suspension upgrade which includes lowering on sportline springs and all I can say it the ride quality is great. I was very skeptical because of other cars that I had lowered on different springs ang shocks and struts but this combination is just great. Well worth it.

      Works well as expected. Does not come with new bushings and caps for rear shocks. Sort of expected that for something like this. Had to reuse old one, which was a little disappointing. Otherwise, vast improvement over stock!

      You may need an extra pair of strut mounts handy

      Everything installed with no issues with the product. Just had a strut mount come apart during transition, but was able to get it back together seemingly issue-free with some luck. Paired them with the Eibach Pro Springs which really stiffened up the ride quite a bit while dropping it about another inch from factory Performance Pack springs.

      Big difference over stock struts and shocks, especially if your lowered. Would recommend upgrading bump stops while struts are off if your lowered.

      Night and day difference

      The body roll on my 13 GT was really bad stock. It drove like a boat. With the koni socks and struts the body roll was all but eliminated. When you turn the wheel the car responds , when you hit the gas there is no more squat you just launch forward and same for nose dive during hard braking. Solid investment!

      Great Product

      I purchased these shocks and struts for my '12 GT and paired them with HandR Super Sport Lowering Springs. I thought I was going to lose a good amount of ride quality; I did not. The car rides great and handles really well. I am very happy with these. They took about 5-6 hours to install with one mechanic and a few knowledgeable helpers.

      Decent

      Rear shocks went in easy enough (2 bolts, 1 in trunk, 1 underneath). Torquing the trunk bolt is a pain, might need crows feet. Also be sure to torque at ride height otherwise you can damage the bushings (which are already fragile compared to stock ones). Front struts are a pain because of trying to torque the replacement lock nut. (DO NOT USE THE STOCK TOP NUT - THE THREADING DOESN'T MATCH). Didn't include any instructions or values, so I used Ford OEM recommended values. My stock suspension was leaking everywhere, and now it's a lot more responsive and stiff.
