    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.

        Are these shocks and struts stiffer than the stock ones or are these more of just a replacement

        • The KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit is going to be an upgraded replacement kit and it will be slightly stiffer than the factory struts and shocks.

        Are these pre compressed or not?

        • The KONI STR.T Shock & Strut Kit will not come pre-compressed. The compression will need to be made when installing the shocks and struts on the vehicle.

            Replacement for original 2001 Ford Mustang shocks

            Improvement of ride and handling on Georgia interstate, where avg traffic speed is 75-85mph, was significant; and on country roads here, where hills and corners are the norm, the improvement was equally impressive.

            Better then OE

            Great replacement and upgrade for worn shocks. Improves handling over the factory ones with a more planted feel, and only a little less soft compared to stock. Add in the lifetime warranty, and you have a product that I don't hesitate to recommend.

            Think of this as a 1.5 mod

            Throwing these on a sn95 V6 -> V10 build that's currently underway, so I can only comment on that particular vehicle but so much. That being said, I've had these on previous sn95s and they do well to cut out a lot of "sag" in the suspension. Noticeably less roll and a tendency to sit up under static or constant loads (think less squat under acceleration and braking). I picked these for my current build as those are the traits I'm looking for to deal with the additional weight (with both the engine and eventual ballast). Think of this as a 1.5 mod; one that can handle street up to medium track work.

            Orange Stand-outs!

            I'm not a car expert by any measure but I'll have to say my new 'orange Koni's' are helping me keep my uppers in place now while driving my 01 Mustang GT! I bought the car used about 2 yrs back.......it had been lowered and while it handled curves like a champ, it was a shocking ride for me! The new Koni's and new stock springs have helped the ride quality for sure. I might even rate the Koni's as 5 stars but I still have a few left over ride quality issues related to the car's camber plates.....when I get that straightened out I'll know more.

            Some issues

            I bought and installed these to replace extremely blown 24 year old stock parts. The install was extremely straightforward and took maybe an hour with basic tools, but I did have a few issues afterward. These may be a result of some other issues with my car, but both shocks are rubbing the quads and the slides are scraping the shock bodies. The car is also still pretty bouncy. Think I'll swap the shocks for some adjustables and leave the struts as I have no issues with those.

            Great product, my car was in serious need of new shocks and struts so while I had everything apart I also lowered it with Eibach Sportline Springs and installed the SR caster/camber plates. Great combination.

            First time KONI customer

            So I recently purchased a 97 cobra, currently has 134k Miles. It is lowered on Eibach sportline's. So the car is low, bouncy and I'm assuming on original Struts and shocks. After install, the car has improved greatly. I've driven it for approximately 40 miles and rides great. It's not like you're driving in "clouds", but comfortable enough for a daily driver. After all I have lowering springs and not stock or OEM. So if you're in the same situation debating JLT, BBK CAI vs Struts and shocks? Go with the struts and shocks!

            One of the rear shocks had so much paint on the threads that I had to re cut them with a dye to get the nut to work. One of the struts had a plastic protective cap that was cracked and had to be trashed. For the money I expected much better quality.
