I ve been looking for strut and shocks for my mustang since I am going to be install steeda sport springs. I was wondering if the Tokico Mach 1 strut/shocks are any good. I can get them pretty cheap. Or should I pay the extra 200 bucks and get the Tokico 5 way adjust.?

for the price i think the mach 1's are unbeatable (set of 4 ~$180 online, local ford dealer ~$220). adjustables are nice also as your preferences change so can they.

Are they almost the same as the bullit shocks/struts offered by Tokico? Are they pretty good quality?

bullitt and mach shock/struts will feel about the same riding around town (firmer) but are valved slightly differently for the nature of the bullitt and the mach. basically the bullitt's are valved more for handling and the mach learns towards straight line. if you go with steeda sport springs and want better 1/4 mile times go with the mach 1 strut and shocks.

tokico's are very good quality wise. when ford figures out we're buying mach stuff for our gt's you can be sure the price will go up.

I was debating on the adjustables, but I primarly use my car for daily driving and only go to the track once in a while and really did not see the use of buying the adjustables for my usage. I think I will get the Tokico's because they are good quality and are fine for my application. Thanx

I would say if your car is lowwer than stock get the Bullitt Tokico's, If its stock hight then look around Mach 1's are not known to handel well.

Is it worth going w/the Bilstiens instead? From Ford the Mach 1s can be had for $210 to your door however the Bilstiens can be had for about $480 to your door from Bimmer.com. Is it worth the difference, I would say probably, right :confused:

Do the bilstiens give you good performance in the 1/4 mile or just handling? At the bimmer.com website they only sell the heavy duty bilstien for mustangs, is that the only type that bilstien offers or is there a high performance/sport shocks/struts?
