Installation of front coilovers on 1994-2004 Mustangs, as well as 79-93 Mustangs w/ 94-04 front control arms, may require clearancing of a flange near the driver's side frame rail. The flange is on the oval-shaped hole on the inboard face of the driver's side upper frame rail.
Dust boot for shock/strut must be removed or modified for installation.
I purchased this kit through Maximum Motorsports, but the kit for the Bilstein struts. I have 255/40R17 tires on my Fox with an SN95 Cobra brake upgrade. I was having a lot of problems with the tire touching the fender at mild bumps and whenever I turned and was braking (had Ford Racing B lowering springs).
Install is a breeze, but you will have to modify the hard to soft brake line location. The comfort of the ride is better than ever, and turns are amazing. I can now take bumps like they're nothing! This kit is perfect for street and keeping stock height to a 1" lower (can go more if you want). I kept it at a half inch lower from stock and it's perfect. This kit is far superior than any other kit I have seen, so it's worth the money.
A few things to keep in mind though: you will have to move the soft to hard brake lines if you have a fox, you may want to strongly consider upgrading your A arms because it will put a lot more stress on the lower ball joints (the driver side ball joint came out about a week after I put this kit in. Cars get old, so you may want to consider that strongly while you're in there), strongly consider if you want to have to adjust your struts (if you know what you're doing go for the Koni kit, but if you don't go with the Bilstein struts because you will make the performance worse if you do not adjust your shocks and struts correctly), and give yourself time to install this properly. It's not hard, but it can be time consuming if you've never done it before. If you have any questions, call Maximum Motorsports to get the optimal kit for you.
