TSB 12-6-17 -think again...

1700 miles post TSB already, rattles and clunging is gone but so is the sportier/ stiffer suspension drive feel...
Had 10k miles on my SE sport before the TSB and it definitely was more responsive before...
The day I got the car back after the TSB I noticed the front fender to tire gap looked just a little more than it was before... Thought maybe it just needs to settle..
Observations 1700 miles later:
Ride height didnt settle and is slightly higher than before (drove by near dealership lot and mine now looks like about same with new SE non-sports)
Steering got just a little numb especially when taking off from a red light used to be really more responsive, now it just doesnt put the power down as it did before off the line and feels less solid
Overall just a little more floaty on the highway -miss the solid feel it had on highway speeds
It is now just a softer setup, I've drivn over same roads and potholes that I used to and now it is clearly softer over these bumps..
In so many words best described is that this now just a conventional setup the stiff responsiveness is not there any more...

Ready to say I want my suspension back.. started looking online on newer build foci only to realize Ford is not using the TSB parts.. also checked ford parts and listed are the old parts for purchase...
