you would want to use something made for a lowered suspension.. i'm about to go with Eibach Sportlines on my 2000 GT and will be using KYB AGX adjustables and Maximum Motorsports C/C plates which are supposed to be some of the best next to Steeda.. you will bottom out stock struts/shocks with 2" springs (hence the bending of rods and breaking of C/C plates)

Those are UPR"s and there actually pretty decent. And i think if you wanted to you could use fox struts. They will be a little shorter and not stick up so much.

well if they are decent, do you think that they could have broke because i used the stock gt mustang struts??.....my bullitt comes only 3/4" lower STOCK than regular gt's, and it had upgraded tokico struts on there STOCK.....lol i downgraded to a stock gt strut when i changed my springs because my stock struts were bad, i couldnt offerd anything else at the time

I'm looking at the QA1 or something... And the only reason those broke is cause the strut was being bottomed out against it

Eibach makes struts for lowered mustangs, I am going with pro kit shock/struts with sportline springs.

looks like UPR.. they are decent quality.. i have a UPR quick release quadrant/firewall adjuster for my clutch and it was just as nice as the steeda and cheaper.. and a upr shifter.. both good quality for the price.. they're probably broken because of being bottomed out on.. hope you didn't do any other damage!

I hav mm cc plates with stock struts slammed on coilovers and my struts bottom out atleast once a day, cc plates held up great I'm getting kyb agxs on Friday wooo payday
Why kyb's? Im just curious you can get strange adjustables or lakewoods for the same price and there better for drag racing which is what im guessing what your going for..
