You could go with Tokico D-Specs which are adjustable (from full soft to stiff) and feature a lifetime warranty, which is what I would suggest if you decide that you are ok with going with a stiffer ride for increased handling.
Thank you, after checking Tokico website, they don't have any for our car for 2011,2012.

As far as stuts, you can go with Koni STRT's (non-adjust) or Koni sports(adjust) or Tokico D-spec (adjustable). I run Tokico's and are very satisfied with their performance.
I checked with Tokico website and other websites. I can't find struts for 2011/2012 mustang. Where did you get yours?

The Tokico D-Specs for 2005-2010 fit the '11-'12, however it requires the upper spring isolators from the GT500 upper strut mounts.

We also have Pro-Action shocks which are not adjustable, but feature a good ride quality and increase in handling, that do not require the upper spring isolators from the GT500 upper strut mounts.

I got them from American Muscle, and yes the its the 2010 strut with GT500 srtut mounts or Steeda HD camber plates. Either will work just fine.
