Default 2005 GT time to change out the struts

I am getting ready to do my front end. I think I am going to put Koni's on what do you suggest I also plan on changing my lower control arms.
thanks

Good time to lower the car too since everything is pulled apart

Don't forget to replace the stabilizer bar bushings while you are at it. They are solid so they require the stabilizer links to be off in order to slide them off/on the bar. I just replace them on my 08, the bushings disintegrated in my hands when I took them off.

Replacing them also resolved the majority of a log rolling sound I had going over bumps.

I assume you mean that you're planning to change out your front control arms?

Hey Su - I'm a little curious as to this as well! Are you Looking to do Front Control Arms along with Struts?

Let me know if there's anything I can help out with!

with 100,000 miles I am planning on doing the struts along with the control arms. I was told lower control arm but maybe the correct terminology is front control arms. along with the ti rod ends. I am looking at the summit catalog and was told that Koni was the best. I want to upgrade from stock. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
thanks

I like these Strange 10-way adjustable struts. They perform well, for close to the price of regular stock replacement struts.
