    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the SR Performance Rear Shock, which will fit all '99 to '04 GT V6 and Mack 1s, as well as the '94 to '98 Cobras. In this video, I'll be going over the performance and expectations of the SR performance rear shock, as well as its material and construction. I'll take you through when it's a good idea to pick up a new one in general, and I'll top the video off with the installation, which I'll let you know up front will get a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. If you're the owner of a '99 to '04 GT V6 or Mach 1, or the owner of a '94 to '98 Cobra, you may be interested in upgrading your suspension to overall improve the handling performance of your daily driver or weekend warrior. One of the first ways to do this to make a more comfortable and high-performing suspension is to upgrade your front struts and rear shocks, in addition to a set of springs if you haven't already. Now, one aspect of the equation I have with me today is the SR Performance Rear Shock. This rear shock from SR Performance is a non-adjustable option that helps to improve your overall handling and performance of the rear end of your SN '95. Now, with that said, it acts as an ideal replacement for those factory blown out parts and helps you take control in those hard-driving situations. As I mentioned a second ago, the SR Performance Rear Shock is a non-adjustable option, which basically means it has a pre-set damper that is more than capable of handling the life of a daily driver, the light track use, or maybe even some autocross runs. Now with that said, if you're looking to fine tune your suspension to your customized preference, you might wanna check out some of the adjustable options out on the market in order to stiffen or loosen the damper to your personal preference. Now, a question you may be asking is, when is it a good idea to upgrade your factory shocks and pick up a new set? It's definitely a valid option because not everybody wants to spend the money on a new shock if they don't have to. You'll know it's time to pick up a new rear shock if you're experiencing some poor ride quality. Now, if you've experienced excessive squatting at the rear while braking or accelerating, it might be time, and of course, if you notice you have a dented or leaking rear shock, it is definitely time to pick up a new replacement. The SR Performance one is one of the most budget-friendly options on the market and act as an ideal OEM replacement for street drivers, and like I said, even light track or autocross users as well. Now, another good time to pick up a rear shock replacement like the SR Performance one I have here is if you have lowering springs installed or if you're looking to pick up a set of lowering springs in the near future. The SR Performance Rear Shock is better suited to handle the firmer spring rides and lower ride heights, and overall will improve your performance and ride quality by picking up an aftermarket shock like this. So, as I mentioned, when it comes to materials and construction, this one is a direct OEM fit replacement manufactured out of a twin-tube gas pressurized design, with a larger diameter piston for better dampening and rebound compared to the stock option. On top of that, it's got a durable outer steel housing and a black powder-coated finish to give it some impressive good looks on top of that. Now, as far as the price goes for this particular option, again, SR Performance parts are typically the most budget-friendly options on the site and on the market in general. This particular rear shock from SR comes in right around 50 bucks a piece. Keyword there being a piece of course, as in a set of two [inaudible 00:03:18]. Just about 100 bucks there. Definitely, the most affordable price on the site, as some of the options can run you 100 bucks a piece, such as KONI and even the Bilstein options on the site as well. One more point I wanna make before moving on to install, is that this will work perfectly with the SR Performance front strut when paired with the rear shock from the same company. Now, if you're looking to pick them all up together, there is a convenient packaged kit for you to pick up on americanmuscle.com. And of course, if you're looking to pick up lowering springs, these will work even better with those installed as well. Now, when it comes to the installation of a rear shock, it's definitely something that requires a certain level of mechanical expertise and the proper hand tools to get the job done. Now, of course, if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, there's no harm and foul getting it over to a professional to get done properly just to spend a couple extra bucks to make sure it's done right. However, if you are a do-it-yourself, you might be tackling this one at home, you wanna make sure you have the proper tools on hand. You'll need a ratchet and a very lengthy socket set just to be safe, and of course, a spring compressor to properly remove the factory springs, or if you have lowering springs, it's the same case there. You wanna make sure you have that on hand, just to be safe. When all said and done, you're looking at spending a couple of hours in the driveway at home if you're tackling this yourself. I would definitely give this a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter because it's not the hardest job in the world but it's a little more involved than a simple bolt-on mod. Well, just to wrap up this overview and install, if you're the owner of a '99 to '04 GT V6 or Mach 1, or the owner of a '94 to '98 Cobra and you're looking for a way to pick up a very, very budget-friendly rear shock just to improve your overall suspension and handling of your rear end, you might wanna check out the SR Performance Rear Shock, which of course is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

      Bumpy Ride

      I replaced all 4 corners with Sr performance. (i also added SR 1.5" drop with camber kit all at same time) car is very bumpy in the rear and every pothole launches me up from the seat and into the seatbelt. Don't know if its from the shocks or the lowering kit. Car does handle great though. 2003 GT

      Love them!

      My shocks were totally shot so I bought these to replace them and they are amazing! My car is lowered and the shocks aren't too soft or too stiff, they're perfect for my car. I don't have to worry about my rear end slamming on every bump in the road now, I am so happy with them. They were installed with no issues in my driveway in under two hours. I'm glad I didn't spend more money than I needed to on shocks when these get the job done perfectly! I hope they hold up.

      Rear shocks

      I love these! I got the struts to go with them, and my car drives and handles amazing! I’ve had them on for about 3 months and they have held up great. They were also cheaper than any other of the ones at the local part stores.

      Handles great

      Performs great. Goes perfect with my SR performance lowering springs. A lot easier to install than I would have thought. Purchased these in combination with SR lowering springs and SR caster plates. All went on in just a few hours with basic tools. Looks great. The only small down fall was that my ride quality suffers a bit. The springs are made for a coupe and the convertible is heavier. Looks great because it is lower but rear bottoms a bit on hard impacts like railroad tracks. still great performance and bang for the buck

      I tried them on my 98 cobra vert with Vogtland lowering springs and they were too soft. I switched to bilstien HD's and am much happier with the Bilsteins. These may be better suited for a coupe.
