Default Best struts for Eibach pro kit springs?

I'm definately due for new struts. I have probably used my springs for about 3,000 miles now and the car alone has about 75k. I'm considering going with the koni yellows front and rear struts. What would be the best match for the eibach pro kit springs?
Thanks

I've heard good reviews on the Koni yellows. Ive been recommended in the past to get Tokico D specs and Strange.

Both the Koni Yellows and Tokico D Specs are great.

Yellows are for the track imo.

So the Koni's and the Tokico D specs are a good match up for the springs. I'll have to check out what they have to offer. And whats the difference between the yellows, sport, and str t's? Anything else I should consider when buying struts, i.e. strut mounts, panhard, etc?

My motorcycle has adjustable suspension and sometimes I wish it didn't. You may find you are constantly adjusting it and never quite happy.

I'll be doing nonadjustable for the mustang. Get the gt500 strut mounts.

Haha. Well, seeing as how I have a Buell as well I set mine once and it hasn't changed since.

Most will tell you that the softest setting on the yellows = the str.t's jay.
I don't think they ride better than the str.t's, they can be adjusted for stiffness which I can tell you...is not needed for street performance and will not ride better, just enhance handling. The question you need to ask yourself is, do you push the handling of the car enough to justify the cost.
