Product Description

Ford Racing Strut, Shock, & Springs Kit
This Ford Racing M-18000-C-K Adjustable Strut, Shock & Spring Kit for your 2005-2014 Ford Mustang GT or 2012-13 Mustang Boss 302 improves handling, reduces brake dive, & lowers the ride height - all without sacrificing ride quality.

M-18000-C Adjustable Struts & Shocks
The dampers included in this Mustang suspension kit come from Tokico with a unique Ford Racing performance tune and are designed specifically for lowered Mustangs. These shocks and struts will improve your factory suspension and handling while controlling the aggressive spring rates associated with lowering springs. They are a single adjustable, two-way response design so you can fine tune your suspension performance. These Ford Racing Struts and Shocks feature a blue powdercoated finish for durability and great looks!

M-18183-C GT500 Strut Mounts
Original equipment on the 2011 SVT Shelby Cobra Mustang Track Pack, these Heavy Duty Strut Mounts fit all 2005-2010 Mustangs & are a needed component for installing the M-18000-C Struts on 2011-14 Mustang GT & 2012-13 Boss 302.

M-5300-P Lowering Springs
These Ford Racing "P" Springs tighten up your fender gaps and improve your Mustang's handling & braking performance without sacrificing ride quality. Ford Racing "P" lowering springs will drop your 2005-2014 Mustang GT coupe or convertible & 2012-13 Boss 302 approximately 1" which will decrease body roll and enhance the looks of your Mustang's overall appearance.

Because this is a lowering & performance spring you will experience a slightly harsher ride quality compared to stock springs. These are progressive style springs with increased rates, designed for increased handling and performance.

Note: Some factory fasteners are one time use. Please reference a Ford service manual for reuse information and correct torque specifications.

Fits 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 Mustang GT Coupe and Convertible as well as 2012,2013 Mustang Boss 302.

The reference for this review is a 2014 GT with Brembo suspension. The Brembo suspension is roughly 10% firmer than base. In stock form, my car was skittish on curves with rough pavement making the live axle clearly evident. This package together with Ford camber bolts and the alignment set to the Boss 302 specs transformed the handling. It is much more european feeling and one would be hard pressed to identify a live axle set up. It is much more well controlled on higher speed bumpy curves and has much less brake dive. Turn in is excellent as well as straight line tracking. This is with - 1.05 degrees negative camber and 0.20 degrees total toe in. With the dampers set on full soft, the ride is noticeably more firm than the stock Brembo suspension, but not harsh on highway expansion joints. Ambient temps at about 40 degrees F - it will be softer when it warms up. Rear axle was off center about 1/4 inch and corrected with a Steeda adjustable panhard rod.

Now the caveat. If you are going to do this, do it right. I ended up with - 2.5 to - 3.0 degrees negative camber. To correct this I removed the new struts and elongated the lower hole with a die grinder per the FRPP instructions. Adding the 05-14 Ford Mustang camber bolts added $180 to the cost and was more work. I should have done this first and only once. Ford camber bolts are heavy duty and safe in my opinion in contrast to some other aftermarket camber bolts. Another solution is to face up to the cost and purchase Steeda or similar camber plates and install them with the struts.

Bottom line, this is a vast improvement in handling and feels like a much more sophisticated suspension. But surely, this is the result of strut mounts, springs and dampers engineered to work together as a system and the ability to precisely adjust the camber and toe in to the Boss 302 specs. This system improves the car as a daily driver (summer) and will substantially improve handling on the track - the sole purpose of this upgrade.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
