Sorry to be a bugger to you about your sale, but the front and rear springs for the SVTF are NOT interchangeable!! They have different sizes, shapes, and most importantly different spring rates. There are several threads here detailing the SVT springs.

I am only noting this because it would be unfair for some one to pick these up, pay for em, and have them shipped only to find out they got something that wont work.

With regards to what your dealer guy said, everybody makes mistakes, even Ford service center guys. AND With regards to your assumption of him being right and infallible, EVERYONE should know what happens when you ASSUME things. (ASS - U - ME)

Otherwise, glws!!
