I promised I searched.

Will this setup work on an 86 TC? I plan on lowering the car about an inch, and was hoping these would be good upgrades:

Front Tokico struts - gas-pressurized, Hydraulic, unique valving, 35 mm piston

Rear Tokico shock absorbers - Unique axle damper, gas-pressurized, hydraulic. Vertical with horizontal axle dampers, unique valving, 30 mm piston

No. Mustang shocks are too short for TC's. You could get a T-Bird specific set of Tokico's, lower handling springs, a caster/camber kit, and more from Maximum Motorsports.

Front struts will work, but you would at the very least need to upgrade to the 87+ 11" front brakes or the 94+ stuff.

The rear shocks are too short to work on a TBird
