    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the SR Performance Shock and Strut Kit, fitting your 1994 through 2004 Mustang GT and V6, '03-'04 Mach 1, and your '94 through '98 Cobra. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kit's going to appeal to, some signs of premature strut and shock failure, what you should expect to be spending. And then what's it gonna take to get these onto your car, where I'm gonna be giving these a pretty solid one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about two hours of labor. And I'll have a little bit more for you on that later. So if you're the owner of a '94 through '04 Mustang and your struts and shocks are on their way out, which I'll talk about in a little bit. Or if you're just looking to drastically improve your ride handling as well as quality, I would definitely suggest checking out this very budget-friendly option for your car, as it's honestly gonna make a world of difference for your driving experience. So before we get into the thick of the video here, just like I had said previously, I'm gonna talk about some signs of premature strut failure, and that could be characterized by excessive nosedive, which is self-explanatory. When you're getting on the brakes, you're literally gonna feel the body leap up off the chassis and run forward. That's not only gonna be bad for you and for performance, but it's actually gonna be making your front brakes work that much harder and overtime. And considering that they're usually stopping the car more so than the rear brakes are, you're gonna be running through pads and rotors that much faster. So secondly here is gonna be a little bit more of a rocking feeling, and this can be easily characterized by like when you're hitting a set of train tracks, maybe a pothole cover. But I notice it personally the most when I'm running a car through the turns. As it just has a little bit more of a loose and not-so-connected feeling, which, at the end of the day, it's not gonna make you that much more of a confident driver when you're running your car either on the track or some backroads. Now, if your struts are in good order and you're just looking to lower your car as well as drastically improve the handling dynamics as well as the ride quality, it might be a good time to look into getting a new set of struts. As pairing a lowering spring with a factory strut is just not gonna give you the best overall driving experience. And let's face facts here if you're gonna be taking the time to either pull your springs or a strut, it's definitely gonna be a good idea to just do everything at once. Now, on the flip side here, guys, if your shocks are on their way out, some of these signs can be characterized by the following. Now, it's gonna be some excessive rear-end bouncing, squatting, and I don't mean like the good kind where you're getting off the line at the track. Not only that, you may actually be seeing premature tire wear, which is gonna be due to the OE shocks not putting the tires on the ground and making them hit the road that much more effectively. Last, but not least, if they're physically leaking oil over the place, it's gonna be a really great time to have those swapped out as well. So in terms of the performance here, guys, by swapping your factory components with something that's gonna be fresh, have a custom valve setup, it's honestly just gonna make your driving experience that much more enjoyable. And that can be anything from just hitting the back roads on your way home from work, Friday night grudge night racing, or even just doing some road course or autocross work. Now, just to add on hitting some road courses or doing some autocrossing, I gotta mention that these are not gonna be fully adjustable or adjustable in any way. Right out of the box, these are gonna have a custom dampening setup. And that may or may not appeal to you as, if you're gon

    Increases Handling Performance. Are you experiencing excessive bounce or bottoming out when driving over bumpy roads? If so, it sounds like it is time to replace your Mustangs old failing shocks and struts? Engineered with pre-set damping, these non-adjustable SR Performance Shocks and Struts are more than capable of handling the rigors of everyday and occasional performance driving. SR Performance designed their Shocks and Struts for the budget minded SN95 or New Edge owner that is looking for good quality upgrade replacements for their 1994-2004 Mustang.

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

    Application. This SR Performance Shock and Strut Kit is designed for use on 1994 to 2004 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and 1994 to 1998 SVT Cobra. Does not fit the 1999 to 2004 SVT Cobra models with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS). Includes (2) shocks and (2) struts.

    Will they lower my car any from stock height if so how much? Thanks in advance.

    • No, the SR Performance Shock & Strut Kit will not lower your car however this item paired with the SR Performance Progressive Lowering Springs (53150) would provide a drop of 1.5" in both the front and the rear. https://www.americanmuscle.com/sr-springs-7904v8.html

      Great upgrade

      They perform quite well, handling seemed better and the ride quality was a great improvement from the stock ones. Replaced because my rear right shock was seized. I was a little disappointed that there was absolutely no instructions however. I had to guess through my entire installation.

      Pretty Awesome

      These did what they were supposed to do in the sense that they replaced some old worn out ones I had in place before. There was a difference in handling from before, but nothing too crazy. They fit like a glove and improved my ride quality but don't expect anything too luxurious. I'm really happy with the way they came out.

      um shocks?

      In theory it is a pretty easy install. Just need to be sure to have all the right tools for removing old parts and installing new. It is a much softer ride again after 132k miles. Need to change the springs next to get where i want to be.

      bumpy ride

      I replaced the shocks and struts with this kit. To be fair, I also did the SR performance 1.5" drop kit with camber kit at the same time....the videos said not too much ride diffference....when you hit a bump in the road, they jar you against the seatbelt, feels like riding on 22" tires.

      I had worn out shocks, so these make a night an day difference. I would say they are a bit too soft but as a replacement for OEM they do great. I paired it with Steda springs and Eiback Sway bars

      I received the SR Performance Shock and Strut as a birthday gift from my Son's. I am 75 and they were going to install them for me, I did it myself. The front Struts went in easily, no issues. The rear shocks took more time due to the stupid trunk panels. Drove the car after and what a difference. Solid handling, smoother ride, no harsh road issues like before. Highly recommend. BTW this was on a 2001 Bullitt.

      Rear shocks don’t fit

      Front strut went on with new springs. Back shocks are still not on my car. Mechanic says I need a wider piece to attach the shock to. I don’t know where to get this piece. Highly disappointed that the rear shocks don’t fit.

      These were a nice replacement for my new edge and they weren't anything difficult to install. The ride quality has really improved to much stiffer ride. Recommend if you aren't looking to spend a lot but want a better ride quality.

      Bought these for my 2002 V6 Convertible, had them installed and what a difference in the ride. I didn’t think they would make that much of a difference but now it feels like a new car, would definitely recommend this upgrade.
