so I've had the prokit for a while and I have a few questions from anyone else that has it. Do you notice a lot of noise from the bushings. Also I took it to Ford today for a knocking noise and they said it was just natural aftermarket antiroll bar mount I had on. Can I replace this with the Ford part? Eibach part? Is it just natural? thanks

If the kit is installed properly there should be noises. Double check to make sure the springs are properly seated and then double check the torque on strut shaft nut (the big one in the center of the mounting plate). This uses a special lock nut which often doesn't get adequately tightened all the way. Many people stop when if firms up and there's still a ways to go. If loose this can cause the spring to move in the upper mount and cause noises. I'm not sure why an after market sway bar link should cause noises as well unless it uses heim joints which are always noisy because there metal on metal (no rubber or urethane bushings).
