I will be doing my front struts this Sunday coming up. What parts will I need to replace with the front struts. So here is what I'm planning to buy. I was going to purchase a new KYB 235913 GR-2 Strut, and a upper strut mount(same as strut bearing?). Can I use a new motocraft strut mount with a new KYB or should they be the same brand. Fords strut mount is only $10 while the KYB is $25.00. Do I need a new strut bellow(cover) or the insulators for the springs? Does anyone have a parts list for what I'll need? Possibly parts list with part numbers? :shrug:

Depending on mileage most of the parts you listed can be re-used. But new parts if you can afford are always a good idea since you have them in hand.

Make sure you have a spring compressor set and you might need an alignment when done...

Yeah it's got 100k miles. So I think I'm gonna just replace all bushings and mounts. Might do the ball joints as well.
