After a few drive cycles, the front end is about 3/8" higher with the new assembly (strut/spring assembled by the fine folks that work for Ford).

So, the springs were sagging a bit after about 118k miles. Glad I did it.

Aside: A few winds of the springs had some shiny areas - the inner wheel well has what appears to be a corresponding series of rubbed marks.

Could it be they were whapping??????????????

Aw, heck - you mean what I know...

Mods: Caffeinated nut behind the steering wheel
