The 06 Roush needs a suspension upgrade!

Well my silver bullet needs some new suspensioN! obviously i am gonna be limited so i will go with the massive adapter to use any suspension. being that i have a roush i was considering the roush struts (you can get em for cheap right now) with eibach springs for a nice aggressive ride. maybe throw in a better sway bar and some stress bars.

My problem (or lack of knowledge) is what the options really are. How is the Ford racing kit, svt kit (are they the same?), eibach's kitt.

Basically want a nice ride with an aggressive stance, but not have any rub or issues with the roush body kit. I want to do the occasional autocross or 1/4 mile but don't want to go coil over (too much money and i've heard you really sacrifice daily driving). Thanks!

There's a good chance the Roush suspension is identical to the FRPP spring and shock kit. If you want something more aggressive the Ford Racing Multimatic kit with the Dynamic shocks is one option. This is the kit that the NASA Spec Focus's use. The other is an Eibach Pro System or Sportline kit (springs and shocks) for something lower. While the SVT kit is an option, the spring rates will be less firm than either of the kits above or the Roush springs. It also only drops the car about a half inch, but is a screaming deal at around 250.00 for springs, shocks, and a SVT rear sway (not sure what sway they put on a Roush).

I thought the Roush suspension parts were made by Progress.

Roush does most of Ford Racing's R&D. Now who builds their kits is up in the air (at one time it was KW) but my best guess is that they go with whoever gives them the best bid at the time. That's how the auto parts system works...the bottom (cost) line. And i bet it changes day to day.

Or if the roush springs are gonna do what i want than sweet!

So, i rather stay all roush, but if their is a HUGE or noticable diference between the kits i've named, let me know please. If the diference is minimal, i will just pay the extra money to get the roush springs so i can remain all roush.

To say it again, i want a nice aggressive ride but still be enjoyable for everyday driving.
