ok, can I use fox body stang struts up front?
can I use sn95 body stang struts up front?
thought I saw something about using the newer if lowering, and I'm not lowering
maybe the monroes or kyb's are good choices but I am really looking at doing this on the cheap (ebay stuff?)

thanks all

You can use either, std height or lowered. Ive used Fox and SN-95 struts...never had any bottoming out issues, even with the car lowered.
If you're not lowering and want to play it safe(even though there is not issue) use 94+ struts. Some of the larger Mustang-only salvage yards sell take-offs from "new" cars that you can get pretty cheap. I have a small stock-pile of SN-95 front struts from my old job to use on my drivers....

Yep,you will want the 94 to 98 ones if you are going to keep it at stock ride height.Fox ones if you are gonna drop it.
