    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview of the KONI STR.T Shocks & Struts Kit, fitting all '94 to '04 GT, V6, and Mach 1s as well as the '94 to '98 Cobras. In this video, I'll be going over the performance and benefits added to your suspension when upgrading to the KONI Shocks & Struts Kit as well as all the materials and construction that goes into the kit. I'll top the video off with the install. Which I'll let you know upfront here gets a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, simply because this isn't the hardest job in the world, but it is a bit more involved than a direct bolt-on. The KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit I have with me today will be for any '94 to '04 GT, V6, or Mach 1 owner as well as any '94 to '98 Cobra owner who's looking to pick up a pretty serious suspension upgrade to improve their ride quality overall without picking up something as expensive as a fully adjustable ride setup. So the first things first, I wanna point when exactly it may be a good time to pick up a new set of shock and struts. If you're currently driving your New Edge or early SN95 Mustang and you're feeling a sense of poor ride quality or if you're feeling kind of every bump on the road, it may be time to upgrade those factory shocks and struts. Now, if that's the case, the KONI STR.Ts, otherwise known as the KONI Orange, as you can see by their finish, are a perfect upgrade for the guys out there currently running factory shocks and struts and want a better ride quality without having to feel every bump in the road. You get a sense of more stability, while also getting a sense of better ride comfort. This is even gonna be a really good setup for the guys out there running a daily driver, a weekend warrior, or maybe just the occasional track queen. So the KONI STR.Ts, or the KONI Orange, like I said, are one step below the KONI Sport adjustables, which actually have a full range of adjustability. Now, these KONI STR.Ts do not have that. These are actually a fixed dampening, basically meaning they have the exact same dampening you'd get right out of the box with no adjustability. Now, like I said, this is perfect for the street guys out there, maybe the occasional track queen. If you're looking for a bit more, if you're going to the track a lot more often, or if you're taking hard corners a lot more, you might wanna think about picking up the adjustability option with the KONI Sports, simply because you can actually fine-tune it a lot more to your preference. So I, firsthand, can actually tell you I have this exact kit installed on my '95 Cobra, and you might actually recognize that from the November Hot Lap. But with that said, I can tell you firsthand that this is a very comfortable ride suspension for the front and rear. You don't feel many bumps on the road, and I'm actually very, very happy with their performance. There isn't very much in the world that I'd trade these for. Now, as far as materials and construction goes, this option here, both front and rear, are designed with a gas-pressurized twin-tube design with a larger-diameter piston, which gives this all the more comfort and ride stability. Now, KONI has been making shocks and struts for literally decades now, so it would not be a KONI option without the orange finish with the KONI logo printed right on the tubing here. My personal opinion, this is one of the best suspension upgrades without actually going up to a Sport Adjustable. Now, one of the great things about this particular option is they are made to work with either your stock ride height or lowering springs as well. Now, if you're picking up lowering springs, this is a perfect time to pick up a KONI Sport Adjustable and vice versa since the installation is very, very similar. You are gonna have to remove the springs and what-not in order to get these installed. And you do the exact same thing with the opposite side, if you're picking up lowering springs. Now, with that said, these are made to work with any ride height in particular, so no matter what your spring rate is or whatever your spring drop is, these are gonna be working perfectly with that. Now, with that said, if you're looking to pick up a fully adjustable option that you can tweak on the fly, depending on your personal ride preference and what you're doing with that particular day, you might wanna check out the KONI Sport Adjustables, which I just mentioned, which are actually going to be a yellow finish. So if you check those KONI Yellows out, they're gonna be on the site as well. So if you're looking to pick up the KONI Orange setup for yourself, expect to be spending somewhere in the $400 region, which is actually kind of considered a more budget-friendly option. Now, as you can see when you're looking around on the site, there's a lot of adjustability options out there as well as some fixed damperings like this one here. Now, if you're not looking for the adjustable option, I would definitely point you in the direction of the KONI Orange. Shifting gears over to the install portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, this isn't something that is going to be a direct bolt-on. It's a little more involved than that, but it's not the hardest job in the world. I'm gonna give it a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter and give it something you can expect to finish in about four hours or so, maybe the better part of the afternoon. Now, with that said, you're gonna wanna have some very specific hand tools on deck, like a ratchet and a simple socket set, as well as a jack and jack stand or a lift if you have access to one. And you'll definitely want to have a spring compressor on hand to safely and properly remove and reinstall your springs. Just to give you an idea of a rough overview of what you'd be working with as far as the install is concerned, you're gonna wanna make sure your car's in the air safely and supported on jack stands. For the front, you wanna remove one of the wheels, drop the entire brake assembly out of the way, remove the top strut tower from under the hood, remove the bolts holding that top strut, remove the bolts on the bottom where the end links are, and, of course, pull the whole strut out of the system. Now, you're gonna have to use that spring compressor to safely and properly remove those springs and, of course, transfer them over to the new KONI setup. Now, you're gonna reinstall everything in the exact reverse order, pull the brake assembly back up into place, bolt everything down to spec. Now, the top and bottom of the struts will actually torque down to somewhere around 85-foot pounds, but you wanna make sure you're consulting the user's manual or some kind of installation guide before you actually torque it down to any spec. Moving on to the rears, this is going to be extremely similar to the front with the exception of a few minor changes. The top of the shock can actually be found inside the trunk liner, so you wanna keep that in mind while you're tackling this. And if you're handling lowering springs at the same time as well, which is highly recommended since it's so similar of an install, you're gonna support the weight of the differential housing in order to slip out the rear springs. And once that's all said and done, you can wrap it up doing the exact same thing in the reverse order to install the KONI setup. Repeat the process for all of the wheels there, and you're good to go. Now, I am gonna give this one a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. And like I said, it's a little bit more involved than a direct bolt-on, so you're gonna wanna have a little bit of mechanical expertise or some kind of knowledge on hand. If not, just have a helping hand on deck. All said and done, four hours on the install, the better part of an afternoon, and you're good to go. Wrapping things up, if you're the owner of a '94 to '04 GT, V6, or Mach 1 or a '94 to '98 Cobra and you're interested in upgrading your suspension package, such as your shocks and struts a lot more comfortable and street performance ready, you might wanna check out the KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

      Great improvement over stock...

      Just bought a 2004 GT convertible and it still had the stock suspension on it and it was bouncing all over the place. These made a drastic improvement and the car handling is night and day vs before installation. My son and I did the install and it was fairly straight forward. We installed the Vogtland sport springs at the same time, so it took a while. Probably would have been a lot less if we were just doing the shocks/struts. Plus, there were some difficult bolts we had to work through (14 years of grime and rust) to get the job done. But definitely helps to have someone else around when tightening down the shocks and struts.

        We are sorry to hear that these were not what you were looking for. These struts and shocks are a performance upgrade so they will be slightly stiffer and less comfortable.

      Enjoy them much stiffer ride really feeling the road. At first the car will need to adjust depending on how much your plastic has dried out. Heard some pops and cracks but it has stopped all is good, really complaints my sport coil kit. Worst part was removing the old struts, shocks came out easily. Lots of removal in trunk. I'd say my mechanical experiences are up there but still set aside 4-5 hours bc stuff happens unexpectedly.

      Perfect upgrade for stock up to high rate springs

      Needed better struts and shocks for the lowering springs on my car but didn't need anything adjustable or capable of supporting a coilover conversion. This kit is perfect, they are firm but not harsh and improved the control of the car with the stiffer springs.

      Okay could be better...

      Had 187k on the pony still on the factory shocks/struts. Time for a change. Was very tired of feeling every single bump on the road. Install was pretty solid and straight forward even though no instructions were included. Packaged pretty well probably the best thing I am writing about on this review. Was giving this product high expectations but sorry to say I was very disappointed. I can still feel pretty much every single bump on the road although it feels slightly better but not a whole lot of improvement over the old worn out ones. Do not know if it's the product itself or the fact that I still have my factory springs but not what I was expecting it to be.

      My back loves them!

      Long story but here goes... Lowered the car on HandR super sport springs, replaced stock (blown) shocks/struts with autozone replacements. Ride was HORRIBLE! After research and suggestions I was told to go with 79-93 fox body length shocks/struts because they are shorter and respond better to a lowered car for non adjustable shocks/struts. After hurting my back I decided to pull the trigger on the 79-93 koni STR.T shocks/struts. After removing the replacements I compared them to the Konis, the Konis were WAY softer!!! Put them on and it no longer feels like I’m using a 4x4 block of wood for shocks/struts. These absorb 90 of the bumps with zero issue. Also, now the car has some serious traction issues. Went from spinning 1st and halfway through second, now I spin completely through first, halfway through second and chirp third hard. This is on 295/35r18 Michelin pilot super sports. Bottom line I’m extremely happy with them and would suggest them to anyone. Next step is new BMR upper and lower control arms.

      Bought a set of 4 to replace 13 year old stock parts. Also, changed to lower springs at same time. No issues with assembly or missing parts. Pretty easy to install. The ride is much more responsive without being too harsh. The annoying nose dive under braking is now gone! Just get them, cant beat for price.

      Noticable improvement

      I'm sure they don't compare to a coil over kit, but the price point is way friendlier. If your suspension is due for replacement anyway, I would spend the extra $ on these vs stock replacement. They look great under the car and seem to be a step up from stock. I'm the 3rd owner of my car, by the looks of the shocks I was replacing they were originals and were in need of replacing. Paired them up with a set of BMR lowering springs, ride is tight, stiff, but not harsh. I wouldn't replace stock parts with miles left on them with these just to upgrade. But if you're doing the work anyway, these are a fair prices improvement. Time will tell on durability, I only put a couple thousand miles on the car per year, so hopefully they'll be around for a while. Install for me took a full day in the garage with a jack and two stands, but I was doing the springs as well. Just the shocks alone would have been maybe 20-30min per tire.

      I picked up a set of ford b springs along with these, Great suspension. smooth but soaks everything up nicly. I was hoping for a touch stiffer setup but a buddy just said he thought it was a bit stiff. Guess it depends on what your looking for. either way i cant see anybody having any major problems with this setup. The car rides and handles great.
