rambleon84 if going Ford Racing, I'd suggest these over the SVT springs:

They will sit about .75" lower than the SVT's

Exactly the infol I was looking for thanks for the help

cdh_3752 Yeah I know if they are the originals I really don't expect to get anything out of them. But honestly they look brand new compared to everything else under there which leads me to believe they had been replaced at some point in time(could very well be wrong) . but the coil overs are dgr and besides over tightening the upper rear shock mounts( completely my fault) I'm extremely happy with them.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but w/ 120.000 miles & being stock= nothing. Scrape them. Thats what I did when my car was new= 2 weeks later, I was on frpp's springs/dampers to start. What coilovers did you end up w/? How do you like them?

cdh_3752 I remember seeing them. But there over in my moms garage so I'm bit sure what they are right now. Ill try to check tomorrow and get a couple pictures.
