Paul P I did not think that was the case with mine the rear has more of a gap than the front. My Avatar has the suspension installed and you can see the gaps.

Paul P I put MX-3000 suspension kit on my ZX3 a while back now. I love it! I also installed a complete Prothane urethane bushing kit while I was at it. The only trouble i ran into was with rear lower control arm cam bolts in the middle of the car. I had to grind into the bushing until I hit the bolt all the way from one end of the bushing to the other. Once I got through and sprayed it they let go. They are totally covered with anti-seize now and should not be a problem. I did have to purchase 2 things to complete the kit. One of them has not been mentioned in this post the SVT dust boots for the front struts. I bought those along with the front strut mounts that are needed to complete the kit. Next was the 17" SVT wheels from Tasca Ford on an E-Bay auction that I got for $350! They were on E-Bay new for sale individually. I had 4 windows open bidding on them until they ended to make sure I got a set of 4. I got lucky and scored them for cheap. What a difference with some Hankook Ventus V12 Evo tires on them. Lastly was the Massive Strut tower brace. That was the biggest noticeable difference after getting used to the suspension. I highly recommend the brace for the front. It really ties everything together. There is a design flaw in the front strut mounts IMO. The plastic spring pocket locator is weak. A little wheel hop at the drag strip or on the street will break it. I have the Autozone mounts in there now so when the go bad it is just a swap.

rcksvtcontour Anybody deal with a 2003 FSVT that has been rust proofed underneath??? Just wondering what their nuts and bolts looked like and how easy/hard it was? Im about to do mine and it has been rust proofed. So far I have bought the M-3000-ZX3A Kit and strut mounts.

Mines pzev and I'm in Tennessee. How that happen beats me
There is no such thing as a non-PZEV 2004 ZTS Sedan - they are all PZEVs.

Blaz3 Yes you will still get gains from a tune and the more mods you add the more gains and safety the tune will add , will it do as much as most SVT no unless you have one of the duratec that is down on power because of a factory tune
You cannot change your car from a pzev but can change the tune to one that isnt

Djzx3 Tom said that? I could have sworn that the only thing that makes it a PZEV is the extra o2 sensor, and the cat on the header?

I could be wrong?
05-24-2012 02:57 AM
Blaz3 For now? I talked to Tom about that and he said you can't change a PZEV to a non PZEV. I guess the only real diff is a tune and exhaust.
