hey guys! My names Andrey, i come from the states. washington state to be exact. Ive been building and driving my 1999 mercury cougar (or ford if you prefer) since i was 16.
today the car is fully build all solid suspension 3.0L swap port and polished heads, full exhaust, full bolts ons, custom tune, and plenty more. too much to list honestly. it legally is a street car but it is too stiff for the streets and i pretty much only race it.
i am here because my custom coilover suspension has cracked and koni struts are discontinued for my platform and i know mondeo stuff is pretty close that might fit.
i noticed a few companies selling mondeo mk2 and mk3 and st220 coilovers but i dont know if they will fit for sure. the front and rear struts on my cougar are both McPherson design. the rear doesnt have a separate spring. and also they both slide into the knuckle. My main concern is the outside diameter of the bottom of the strut housing. I need to make sure it will fit US knuckles.
would any body be able to measure both front and rear bottom of the struts for me? or better have any specific pictures of suspension parts? being here in the US i cannot find any info between mk2 mk3 and st220 suspension. i have posted what mine front and rear struts look like (with a cut stock spring perch). i just need to kno wif any mondeo struts will fit directly or with some modification.
