Unfortunately .... I didn't come across the suspension issues in my research .... my fault, and now I have to live with it unless Ford finally fixes it once and for all, which as of now ... seems unlikely IMO.

At least you have driven both.

They should just replace it with the ST suspension, that doesn't have any issues and is a few hundred in parts.
