    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with the SR Performance Front Strut for 1994 to 2004 Mustangs. The SR Performance front strut's gonna be for the budget-minded driver that's looking for an upgrade or a replacement front strut. These are gonna be a good option for someone that doesn't need a heavy-duty or an adjustable upgrade. But if you need a new front strut for regular maintenance or to go along with a new set of lowering springs and you have a budget, then you should be checking these out.Even though these are a non-adjustable strut, which means you cannot adjust the dampening, it's preset for you, they're still gonna be considered an upgrade over the factory struts. The big difference between these struts and the factory struts is that these have a larger diameter piston in them. The larger piston will give better dampening and rebound when you compare it to the stock strut. These still have the standard twin-tube gas pressure design and the dampening is set to still give a comfortable ride quality during normal driving conditions but also still be capable enough to work with a lowering spring and in more spirited driving situations. So these will work on both the daily driver and the weekend warrior. You're gonna notice a big improvement in ride quality if you've got a lot of miles on your current struts, especially if they're towards the end of their life or they're already blown. You're also gonna notice an improvement if you've lowered your car and are still running the factory struts, since these are a little bit more capable of working better with the lowering springs. And I say this because the internals are not set up to take the abuse of the lowered ride height on the factory struts.Another thing about these struts is that they are considered upgrades, and they will work with lowering springs, but the dampening is set to still give a smooth ride, so no harsh and bumpy ride quality that you can't adjust. And like I said before, I'm not saying that these are the best performing struts, but considering the construction and the product details, these are comparable to other non-adjustables at a less expensive price. So, can you find a better performance strut? Yes. But can you find a better one at this price point? Good luck. And seeing that these offer many of the same features that other non-adjustable struts offer, I still think that these are worth checking out. So speaking of price, these are sold individually, but you can expect to spend in between $50 and $100 per strut, which is much lower than the competition.So the install here is not a difficult install, it's all straightforward, and you won't need any tools out of the ordinary. You will need an assortment of different sockets and wrenches. And if you decide to tackle this yourself, you can expect to spend about a half-hour per each side. And this is a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Having a lift is gonna make things a lot easier here, but you can complete the install with a jack and stands. You're gonna need to get down to the spring and strut assembly. So everything like the wheels, the brakes, the ABS lines will need to be moved out of the way so you can pull the factory struts out of the car.There are only a few nuts for each strut. There's one on top and two below holding the strut to the spindle. Once all of the bolts are loosened, you'll need to have a way to hold the spindle in place, so you can remove the two nuts and pull the strut down and out of the car. You need to swap the dust boot and bump stops over to the new SR strut and then the new struts ready to be installed the same way the factory one came out. You will need to line up the mounting flange with the spindle and get the bolts back through to hold everything into place. The nuts can be tightened down to spec, and the top nut can be tightened as well. And then you can put your wheels back on, lower your car, and take it for a test drive.Wrapping things up here, the SR Performance Strut is a non-adjustable factory replacement upgrade. It's very budget-friendly, but without sacrificing any features of the ride quality. As always, I suggest you check this out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Increases Handling Performance. Just because your Mustang is your year round daily driver, that doesn't mean you don't like to go on a spirited drive every once and a while. It is just for this reason, that SR Performance engineered their non-adjustable replacement Front Struts with pre-set damping. Pre-set damping will provide capable handling during normal and performance driving situations. SR Performance offers their Struts at a friendly price for the budget minded driver.

    Quality Construction. SR Performance Struts were designed as an affordable upgrade replacement for the factory strut. Manufactured using a gas pressurized twin-tube design, this Strut has a larger diameter piston to provide better dampening and rebound, when compared to stock. SR Performance Struts feature an outer steel housing that is completed in durable black finish for impressive good looks.

    Application. This SR Performance Front Strut is designed for use on all 1994 to 2004 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models. Sold individually.

        Am i able to mix brands when replacing shocks struts? For example, if i use SR Performance front struts and KONI STR.T rear shocks. Will it affect anything?

        • You may mix brands such as using these SR Performance Front Strut and a different brand for the rear, or vice versa. This will however, cause the vehicle to ride differently, especially if one particular brand is valved differently than the other.

            Front sr struts

            Real easy to install never had to take brakes or rotors off .smooth ride feels alot better.if you have the original top mount still installed not bad at all.but like almost everyone said drop the three bolts on top then you can work on it anywhere just hold the old rod with visegrips then you can get the top nut off.when you cut the metal tie to the dust cover you can use a zip tie to reinstall the boot .you wont regret buying these SR struts. Prise was great and i got them pretty quick thanks AM.

            Not in pairs

            You would think they would come in pairs because you don’t just replace one strut at a time. I ordered front and rear struts thinking their would be 2 for each side of the car but I just got one of each. Sounds kind of dumb on my part for buying just one but it makes sense for them to come in pairs.

            Missing lock nut M.16 1.50

            I ordered 2 front struts. I was about to install them until i realized one of them was missing a locking nut. This set me back like a week which sucks because my mustang is my daily. I went to several hardware stores and none of them had it. One hardware found out the size is an M.16 1.50 lock nut.
