They imply at least one advantage over competitors and I would assume they believe they have more or they would not have released a product that is $50 more expensive than it's direct competitor (which is already known to do it's job pretty well).

Exactly. I am sure they are tuned to compliment their RSB as well...

What would the advantage of their spring be versus the competitor?

I've been very lucky to work with Steeda with the STS kit and getting to try and help with other parts as well. When I get these springs ill have every part to date from them :-D

Good question.

Reminds me of the similar curiosity I expressed in my original post.

I also listed what they claimed their advantages were and that I was wondering if anyone was going to test their claims out before I had a chance to.

Question for you or Brandon - Steeda worked with Ford on thier intake design (I'm not sure how closely) did they do the same with these springs?

Looking forward to seeing them on Red.

For the intake they used CAD data that was set to them directly from fords engineering team.

In regards to the springs they came up with their own spring rates and to my knowledge went through at least to companies to get the springs done they way they wanted. No compromise was made on the springs.

And as soon as the springs are installed pictures will be taken
