i heard that some people are runing a right front strut out of a car with a v8 in it.
does the v8 cars have a better strut than a 4 or 6 cyl car? if so would that be a better choice to go with?
thanks in advance

if u want to spend some money the best ones i ever had was koni yellows worked wonderfull until i smacked wall then i went to stock struts again i used 4 cyl struts because u r running a 4cyl work with your springs in the front to get it to turn better the struts difference wont help u to get the car to handle better unless u spend sometime on suspension if you have any questions i have other tricks for setting up stut front end email at

One of the best things you can do for the Mustang front end is get the right lower control arm from '89 V8 car. It is about 1" longer and will give you more camber on the right front. There are some other year models that will do this also. Just don't remember what they are. This is the one we used.
