    like the title says.

    I'm trying to order the Hyperflex kit from summit. My strut bushings are bad.
    the summit part details just says that the kit includes front and rear shock bushings.

    just to be sure are these the same?


    thanks

    Yes and no. No, they are not the same. Yes, the kit (although in-accurately described) has what you need.

    What was the part # for the shock/strut package? I'm getting the same thing. I searched on summitracing.com and couldn't find it. Is there any keyword I should try?

    Thanks!

    I saw the 198.95 kits but I was wondering if there was a kit that JUST included the strut/shock bushings. And preferably with the hyperflex bushings.

    198.95 is a little too much if all I need are the strut/shock bushings.
    Is there any other place that sells em?

    Try www.suspension.com. They have just about any Energy Suspension bushing you could need.

    Maybe I'm just dumb/blind/both but I can't seem to find a kit for just shocks/struts... It seems easy enough to navigate but I just can't find it.

    Can somebody perhaps point it out? I found this page: http://www.suspension.com/mustang.htm

    I just looked. I didn't see a kit for just shocks/struts. They have the strut tower bushing kit, but I don't see anything for the shocks.

    the 198.99 kit from summit includes shock & strut bushings as well as the rest of the bushings for the rear and front end, it's a , master kit.

    everything but the sway bar bushings.


    good luck
