Lakewood: Lakewood is largely known in amongst the drag racing pool, but they too have developed a mild street/strip strut for the Foxbody. Lakewood has engineered a nice blend of performance without sacrificing comfort or poise with their 70/30 labeled struts.
Bilstein: These bad boys are heavy hitters. They’ll cost you more, but accompanying that price tag comes undisputed performance, recognition, and popularity amongst the aftermarket Mustang crowd. Bilstein HD’s (Heavy Duty), of all the struts listed, are the most orientated to vehicle handling and performance. Due to this, their ride can be stiffer compared to the other struts. However, if you’re looking to carve corners like your car is on rails, you can’t go wrong with Bilstein HD’s. Among stock geometry suspension setups, Bilstein HD’s are among the highest performing.
When buying and installing new struts it is strongly recommended to replace the mounting hardware as well. MOOG provides a quality front strut assembly mounting kit with all the necessary components to get the job done right.
