I will start with a good alignment. Is there a set of specific settings I can give a shop? I've been searching the forums, and haven't found anything obvious yet.
thanks all for the info.
I can't find an alignment shop that will do exact specs for me, I just told them to use an 03' SVT (I have SVT suspension remember) for reference and my local shop does a good job.
Its really just a matter of using a metal cutting wheel on an angle grinder, cut all the stuck bolts out, replace with new parts, torque to spec. Not fun but it wasn't hard either if you are used to working on cars. If you do order lower rear control arms, Tousley Ford has great prices and service.
I would start with:
-New lower rear control arms, inside camber bolts and outside bolts
-inspect rear-front lower control arm bushings
-inspect upper rear control arm bushings
-inspect sway bar bushings
-inspect wheel bearings
-replace front and rear sway bar end links
-replace shocks, struts, and strut mounts
