    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.

            Easy install

            Easy to install, rides nice and looks good. Purchase the lowering springs and the suggested GT 500 strut bearings that did not fit. So I went back and discovered that other people had the same issue. Next time I will do better research and not just take the suggested items.

            Great upgrade to Stock

            I installed these pair of shocks and struts along with BMR rear control arm to my 2011 GT. I still had OE part after 100K and needed to upgrade. I would feel every bump, some bottom out. Wheel hop was horrible on take off and would eat up tires extremely fast. After the install, the BMR control arms complimented and reduced wheel hop completely. the Koni shocks and struts gave a smoother ride. Bumps were not as painful anymore. The car handled better on cornering and reduced dive on stopping. I did an alignment immediately after install and needed a camber bolt kit. The hole for the camber bolts needed to be drilled bigger to fit the tabs of the new camber bolts. The OE strut mounts fit with the Koni struts with no problem.

            Great Fitment!

            Fit really good! Everything lined up pretty straight and they seem to be a quality product for the money. The ride seems almost stock , not too rough or bouncy. I coupled them with the Ford Racing lowering K- springs and I'm very happy with the results! Also I didn't need the GT500 strut mounts either, those are only needed if you are using the 2005-2010 shock and strut kit on a 2011-2014 mustang.

            Amazing!

            Feels as close to stock ride with all the handling benefits of upgraded suspension! Tied all my aftermarket suspension components together so now I can push it faster around corners without the feeling of spinning out. Doesn’t ride harsh either with the car being a fairly driver as well.

            Perfect with Eibach Sportlines!

            My GT was still on factory shocks and struts at 105k miles and paired with the Eibach Sportlines, the ride quality was terrible to say the least. I installed the Konis about a week ago and the ride quality is way better. When you hit a bump you no longer hear the whole car shake and rattle. You still feel the bumps but they're nowhere near as violent now. The handling has improved some too! I didn't have any major body roll beforehand but now it feels a little more confidence inspiring (even for a Mustang!) the install is also pretty easy. Doing all 4 took about 2 hours and didn't give me any major problems. Only time will tell how they hold up but so far I highly recommend these! The only con is when going over some bumps you can hear the plastic dust cover on the rear shock rattle.

            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.

            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.
