New member. St parts on an se?

New to forums. Have been a ford tech in Washington state for about 6 years. Mostly powerstroke stuff. If I can help anyone would be happy to lend a hand if I can.

Curious about suspension component swap on st to se. Are there differences between the cars as far as sway bars shocks n springs?

the front struts and springs will work from an ST to and SE however the spring height winds up being different. it's better to use ST struts and than use lowering springs for the SE.

I am a ford tech. And we don't automatically know what fits what. We can request from the parts department if the part numbers are the same or not but most of the time they are running and don't have time for that. Where my dealer is located we primarily deal in pickups and with me working mostly on 6.0 6.4 and 6.7l diesels I don't see these cars very much. I bought one as a commuter and it only has 2800 miles. The other techs haven't done anything but clutches in the autos and oil changes so they are not a good source of info either

Hmm so some stuff. Thinking I will order steeda front a d rear sway bars for now. Wasn't pleased with how the car handle out of the box. My wife drives it as well so don't think I will upgrade springs/struts. If I do they will be mild
