California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
The STR.T are also commonly known as the KONI street or the KONI orange are an excellent replacement shock and strut for your 1979-1993 Fox body Mustang. These will work great with a lowered car. They also make a great replacement just for the high miles originals you might have on your Fox body. Both the strut and shock have fixed damping. It'll work great for daily drivers or performance cars. It'll give you a nice mix of excellent comfort and a high performance ride.
For this installation today, a lift, a jack and a pole jack, or a jack and jack stands, 3/8th ratchet, 17 mm socket, 18 mm socket, 19 mm socket, short extension, 1/2" ratchet or impact gun, 13 mm socket, 21 mm socket, 24 mm socket, 18 mm wrench, 21 mm wrench, 24 mm wrench, 6 mm Allen key and a small handler. First up in the process is to get the car off the ground and remove our front wheels. Then we're going to remove the caliper and remove everything else we have to, so we're going to remove the original strut. Then you want to safely support it out of the way. Now before you remove the strut, you want to put a jack underneath the control arm to support, because the spring cylinder and springs are under a lot of tension. Now we can remove the strut and slightly lower it down to get it off the car.
Now we're going to remove up top and remove the strut nut, so we can remove the strut itself. These are all the components from the factory strut. In our case they were after market, but these are all the original parts. We'll put the strut aside. Now normally all of this stuff with the exception of the nut, because it comes with a new one will be transferred over. In our case, we're actually installing Caster Camber Plates as well. We aren't going to be using any of this stuff here. All we're going to use is just the boot. In our case we only need the boot. We don't need this rubber part here. We're going to move this metal clamp and just keep the boot.
Now we're ready to put our KONI strut back in the car. Again we're using a Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plate. We're using our original plates. Put the factory spacer on her from the top. In our case we're using smaller spacer that work with the Maximum Motorsports parts. Now the strut through the bearing plate, same thing up top. Small washer, large washer and then the nut. The strut hanging loosely now, we can reconnect the spindle. The final step down here is to re- install the caliper. Now to lower it place, we can tighten the strut nut up. Then we're going to repeat the process on the other side and move on to the rears.
Moving on to replacing the rear shocks we're going to start off by supporting the rear axle itself, so you remove the bolt that holds the shock to the axle. Okay, I'll just lower the car down. Everything else will support it. Now we're going to go into the trunk to remove the top. The top shock mounts are under these covers. Stick a small screwdriver underneath and pop them right off. Sometimes you've got to move a little sound batting out of the way. You can see it sitting right there. We'll put our new shock up into place. Now put the new bushing on. Washer and then the new bolt. Okay, now you can reinstall the cover. Just pop back into place and move back under the car.
Now move the shock over, lift the rear into place. Okay, we'll repeat the process on the other side and your installation is finished. The KONI STR.T were the perfect choice for our 1992 Mustang GT. The fixed style in the use of the shocks will work fine with the factory springs. It works even better with the lowering springs like the Pro-Kit we installed on this care previously. The installation is fairly straight forward. Probably taking between two and three hours. You'll be back on the road in no time.
