    Gabrial Ultra

    I purchased the Gabriel Ultra on 5/3/2015. I took the car to get it aligned after putting 25,000 miles on the shocks and was told that I have bad shocks. I do not recommend this brand unless you do not mind replacing them every year. now I need to upgrade but not sure what brand to get.

    2001 GT Mustang Shocks

    11 of 11 people found this helpful

    After doing length research on which shocks to buy for my 2001 Mustang GT I decided on Gabriel Ultra Shock and Strut. Shocks for back and Strut for front. Pretty straight forward to install with the right tools and know how of course. Caution needed with front installation due to preload on coil springs. Look at a YouTube video if you will do it yourself. That's what I did. The use of a 21 gallon air compressor with impact gun is a plus but you can use a breaker bar too. My GT Mustang needed the shocks badly. They never been replaced so I had bad swaying and terrible control. I decided to install the shocks after checking the tie rods and rack and all checked out so had to be the shocks. After I installed the shocks had a noticable improvement. Better control. Some stiffness but that is to be expected on regular and sporty cars. And the car does not sway as bad. Overall great for the money. So far so good. Will see how long they last. Shocks normally need to be changed every 50,000 miles. I feel better driving my Mustang now. I recommend them if you are on a budget. I am sure the KYB's and Monroe's might be better but for the money these shocks do the job right just as well. Places I price compared are American Muscle, Ebay, Auto Parts Geek, PepBoys, Napaonline and AutoZone. I compared and double and tripled check and in the end along with the sales AutoZone had I saved a ton of money especially when I learned how to do it myself. If I would take to a mechanic to install they will charge betweem 35 to 45 bucks each wheel plus tax. But that's fair it's a service you pay for. But if I can do it myself than I will as I did here. Have a great day! =)

    Pros: Improved ride overall

    Cons: None
