    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Adam here with Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the Pedders sports ryder front strut, available for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. So in this video, of course, I'll be going over the benefits you can expect when adding this front strut from Pedders to your handling and suspension package. Now, I'll also touch on materials and construction, and top the video off with the installation, which I'll let you know up front here, gets a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, making it just one step up from a simple, you know, cold air intake bolt-on mod. The Pedders sports ryder front strut will be for any '05 to '14 Mustang owner who might be looking for a direct fit replacement to a factory damaged or blown out front strut. In this case, you're gonna be looking at a non-adjustable direct fit replacement that will upgrade your suspension to give you a better performance where the handling and suspension is concerned. So, while you're looking around in the aftermarket world for a front strut replacement, you'll notice there are quite a few options out there and some of them range from fixed to adjustable, some of them are different colors, some of them have different fitments. Well, this one right here is gonna be a perfect direct fit replacement for your '05 to '14 S197, giving you no trouble at all with the installation which I'll touch on a little bit later on. Now, I do wanna mention that it is a non-adjustable option, so if you're a guy out there looking to, you know, get a little bit more wide range of adjustability to fit your personal preferences on the fly, you might wanna check out some of the other options out there. This will gear toward the guys out there looking to run a daily driver setup with an upgraded suspension slightly over the stock, to really just beef it up around the corners, stiffen up that suspension of course, while also staying true to a budget-friendly price. Since it is gonna be extremely similar to the options such as the KONI STR.Ts, you're looking at a twin two gas pressurized design from head to toe, something that is extremely durable just as your OEM option would have been. Now, as far as the pricing goes, it is more of the budget-friendly option as opposed to some of the adjustables like the KONI Yellows, which means it comes in right around the $130 mark. A very typical price tag for non-adjustable options with a durable built construction. Now, as far as the installation goes, it does come with everything you need to get it on, and of course, I did give it a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, simply because it is just one step up from a simple cold air intake bolt-on mod. Now, with that two out of three wrenches in mind, it shouldn't take you longer than about an hour to take care of each side. Now, of course, the $130 only does get you the one strut, so you wanna keep that in mind, moving forward. But either way, very simple install, affordable price, really well-built construction, and a very good mod for the daily driver or the light strip or track usage. So, since it is very similar to the KONI's, honestly, it'll come down to two factors. Do you want adjustable or non-adjustable? If the answer is non-adjustable, the options are pretty much Pedders, KONI and a couple other ones out there as well. In which case, it kind of comes down to brand. As for shocks and struts of the aftermarket world, typically, the materials and construction don't really stray too far from each other, so that really narrows it down to, again, price or brand. If you've used Pedders in the past, there's no harm sticking with the same thing since it is familiar to you, but if you'd like to mix it up, you can go with KONI or you can stick with this one as well. The KONIs do go in orange, this one is in red. Color, in my personal opinion, shouldn't really be too much of a factor when we're talking about suspension parts, but if that really floats your boat, then, of course, you can go with this one. The good thing about a front strut is that the installation pretty much always stays the exact same. Now, again, I did give it a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, not because it is a harder installation, but it is just a little bit more involved than a simple direct bolt-on, like a cold air intake as I mentioned before. As far as hand tools, a simple ratchet and socket set would do the trick, and then, of course, a jack and jack stands or a lift. Overall, it shouldn't take you more than an hour to get one side done. Of course, two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. First things first, you wanna jack the car up in the air and support it on jack stands or put it on a lift to make your life easier, if you have access to one. After that, you wanna remove the front wheel to gain access to the entire brake assembly. Remove the caliper, drop the rotor assembly out of the way to gain access to the front strut. Once you've got that out of the way and you hang the caliper up just so it doesn't drag down on the brake lines, you wanna make sure that you're jacking up the lower control arm to remove the pressure from the bottom strut bolts. Once that's taken care of, pop open the hood and remove the bolt at the top of the strut tower. This will break free that top portion. Now you can go back down low and remove the two bolts holding the bottom of the strut into place, and pull the factory option out of the vehicle. Once you put the Pedders sports ryder option into place, of course, just replace all those bolts at the bottom, torquing it down to spec, replace the one at the top of the strut tower and then, of course, put everything back together the exact opposite way you took them off. Overall, it shouldn't take you more than an hour to get the job done, which is why I give it a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Just to wrap it up here, if you're the owner of an '05 to '14 Mustang, you might be looking for a direct fit replacement to a blown out factory front strut. If you're looking for a non-adjustable option to keep it budget-friendly while also getting a decent enough upgrade for your suspension and handling performance, you might wanna check out the Pedders sports ryder front strut, available right here at

    I see most of the struts listed say (ecludes GT500) what makes this strut compatible with the GT500 where others aren't?

    • The GT500 has a different strut mounts, so this Pedders Sports Ryder Front Strut is designed to fit universally with both the GT500 strut mounts as well as the strut mounts on the rest of the Mustangs.

      Great nice and stiff

      These are great if you have a 2011-14 gt you will need gt500 strutmounts. They feel real good taking corners a little too stiff for the daily driver but if you want great handling these are what you're looking for.
