I am having a typical escort gt problem which is my strut assembly and springs. First, my strut is coming through the metal, since the mount broke. Second, I am unsure of what to do with the problem. Everyone keeps telling me something different and I really am totally uneducated in this area of cars. I dont know whether I should just buy two rear struts and springs OEM or would it be better to go with coil overs or just four new lowering springs all around? I just dont know what to buy, I have been looking around for weeks and still do not have a solution. Please any feedback to solving this problem is highly appreciated, thank you.
So your rubber upper strut mount failed? You need to replace it then, and check the others to make sure they are not on there way out also. Do you want the car lower or stock ride height?

Well I would say replace the top mounts and get some lowering springs. If you have to buy springs, you may as well get some lowering springs. I ran Eibach lowering springs on stock struts for almost 4 years and never had a problem, so if you want to save some money just do that, but if you want the best without buying coilovers, get some eibach springs with a set of SR struts and I think you will be pleased.
