        What's the difference between 93 and 94 Lakewood strut

        • The difference between the '93 and '94 Lakewood strut is that the '93 strut is made for the weight and handling characteristics of the Foxbody Mustangs whereas the '94 strut is made for the SN95 and New Edge body style and handling characteristics.

        Will this fit my 1985 mustang with coil over conversion kit and tubular Qa1 a arms and k-member.

        • The Lakewood 70/30 Front Street/Strip Strut is designed for 79-93 Mustangs, so this will physically install in your Mustang, however we have not tested your specific setup, so you will need to ensure your coil over kit is compatible with these struts, and will not cause interference with the tires.

            Instant results

            As soon as I left the driveway and punched the gas I felt an immediate difference in weight transfer. Match these with Team Z rear drag springs and you won't b disappointed. Comfortable street ride and handles my Vortech T-trim powered coupe very nicely.

            Well, I can only say that I tried purchasing the a replacement drag Strut at the local Late Model Restoration Store in Waco which is only seven or ten minute's away on my lunch break a few day's ago and to my surprise the Gentleman at the counter suggested that I would be better off getting it at another Car part supplier on line. So, I turned around and that's what I did. I purchased it from you guy's and the shock was even cheaper compared to LRS price on line. So,I will not be wasting my time checking with them anymore. I have purchased allot of parts from LRS in the past from a rebuilt five speed transmission to interior parts but I will rely on you guys for future purchases. So,much for customer service.
