Does anyone know the difference in length between 2003 Cobra Bilsteins and stock Fox struts?

I am using 2003 Cobra Bilsteins on my 1990 Mustang with SN95 spindles and MM CC plates...will I have any problems with 2003 Cobra Struts being too long? Will they bottom out?

Nope use spacers on top of the strut bearing on the strut to get the top of the strut threaded end as high as possible without hitting the hood.

This is what I did with my bullitt struts 20k miles ago and I have had no problems.

What did you guys use for spacers? I met a guy at the track today with an all stock Fox GT and I told him a good, relatively inexpensive suspension upgrade was the Bullitt or Mach1 kit, but that I thought there was some issue with the strut length. If it's as easy as using spacers to fix, then I think he would be good to go. I just want to make sure I give him the straight gouge.

Thanks!

Well pat they come with the cc kits, but if you didn't have a new cc kit. Its a round tube about 1" diameter with a decent size gage thickness that can be cut with a hacksaw.
