KYB Shock & Strut Kit
Restore your 1979-93 2.3L and 1979-1986 5.0L Mustang's ride quality with KYB's Gas-a-just shocks and Excel-G struts! KYB non-adjustable struts and shocks greatly improve handling performance and are capable of retaining a nice firm ride when daily driving or part time racing. The Excel-G front struts are a twin tube design to maintain factory ride characteristics while the rear Gas-A-Just shocks are a monotube design to keep the rear end firmly planted to the road. This kit includes two KYB front struts and two KYB rear shocks.
KYB manufactures and builds high quality shocks and struts that meet or exceed OEM standards. Each Mustang shock and strut is designed and built with valving for your specific vehicle. Whether you're looking to restore factory ride quality or upgrade handling, KYB has the shock or strut you need to get the job done. All KYB struts and shocks carry a limited lifetime warranty.
Reasons To Replace Your Shocks & Struts
Vehicles are generally designed to handle a broad range of purposes: Passenger ride comfort on one side, load and terrain capabilities on the other. When your typical use of a vehicle sometimes or always stresses heavier loads, top heavy, towing or off-road conditions, you may want to consider replacing the shocks with units that exceed original equipment capabilities. KYB offers many higher-performing “Monotube” shocks for this purpose.
Even on well paved roads the shocks can move up or down 1,500 to 1,900 times every mile: In 50,000 miles that can exceed 75 million cycles. Over time, performance tends to decrease gradually and the motorist usually doesn’t realize how much handling and control is lost. Replacing shocks and struts after 50,000 miles can keep the vehicle performing as well as it was designed and extend its life expectancy.
3. Ride Control Conditions-Based
Worn shocks and struts eventually causes ride control conditions to worsen to a degree that impairs the drivers ability to control the vehicle. Road testing and vehicle inspections by a qualified technician every 12,000 miles is recommended to identify and keep the motorist informed about these conditions.
4. Repair of Failed Units
Shock or strut failures are a driving safety hazard. If you can’t control your vehicle, then it controls you. Evidence of failures includes things like; excessive bounce, units leaking to the point of fluid dripping, tires that are cupping and visual component damage.

Purchased these shocks for my 83 mustang GT. I will be installing them as soon as I take it out of storage, probably within the next month. They appear to be of good quality shocks and did come with good reviews.
