        Had some older Lakewood shocks with same part number and used them with coil over assembly. New shocks same part number will not work because Lakewood has made the body of the shock bigger in diameter, also changed the shock eye. Wish they would have changed the part number along with the design.

        no more holding the reigns on my mustang!

        Before i installed these 50/50's i had to hold the reigns back on my pony. Now i can let her cut loose and she handles beautifully. Fast shipping. Great price. Easy install. No more wheel hop. Great tire lay down. Very very impressed, perfect fitment!

        Bought these cause my old one we're wore out! Only drove around on them for a little bit but these shocks seem to be really nice. I'm switching to coil overs all around now

        Glad I bought these rear shocks

        My last rear shocks were almost non-existent on my new 90' 7up Fox. Im a college student on a budget who still wanted a good quality shock when I put down some power. The Lakewood's fit perfectly and it only took about my buddy and I an hour to throw the Lakewoods on the year. It improved the the handling and helped to put the power to the ground. I like the red finish they even gave a few stickers to post if you'd like. I will definitely suggest this product to someone who is on a budget and still wants some performance in the rear.

        5 1993 GT - IzzyP Installation Time: Afternoon

        feels like the 1st day we met

        Liviing in a busy city with pot holes and brocken road really did damage to the handling of my 93 mustang. I purchased these struts and they are the best thing ever. the suspension if as firm as the day I met my 93 mustang, back in 1994. Awesome product! Lakewood was well know then and still rockn now! Love my new ride! thanks!
