That car looks great. Throw svt suspension/ brakes on that and it'll bring you down some, and handle like whoa!!

SlickWilly 10-30-2013 12:17 PM

That's quite a clean car, looks great.

GBear 10-30-2013 01:32 PM

Yep, my next step is lowering it! I'm curious how much handling will improve.

Ford Racing vs SVT? Any preference?

Gav-O-SVT 10-30-2013 04:59 PM

SVT FTW! Eibach is really good too, thats what I have on my SVT, sportline springs (2" drop) and im soon to get some Koni yellow shocks... Im still running the stock SVT shocks with the Eibach springs... Its a little rough due the shocks being compressed but it handles like a boss!

Exact same

Also, you will need to find out the MFG date of your car. Early 2005's use the same suspension as 2000-2004, later 2005's changed the knucles

You just saved me a lot of future headaches. I'll look around for the date and see what's up.
