ugh why... WHY?!?!

So Found out yesterday the lower control arm on my 07 Sedan is busted... I am beginning to hate replacing parts... good news is I am going to be ordering a ford racing suspension kit from Hilbish soon which means its time for a post over in the suspension forum to find out about alignment stuff for it lol.

Always get it realigned after lowering a vehicle.

and buy the adjustable camber bolts. You won't need camber arms, just the bolts, for anything under I think 2 inches. That way your mechanic can adjust the camber and you won't get uneven wear.
