also take into account for new lower cntrol arms and hardware as you will most likely need to cut them off because the bolt commonly seize in the bushings. I do not know of any aftermarket hardware but from ford its like 10 bucks a nut and 10 bucks a bolt and multiply that times for you're up to around 80 bucks in hardware alone plus around 100 a side for control arms from ford but there are cheaper ones on rock auto.com

good luck!

I could put mono tubes on your car & switch them w/ twin tube ones & I bet you couldn't tell the difference.

Not at all! Please don't buy eibach they lasted 10-15k miles tops for me then started squeeking over bumps and became spongy. I know a lot of ppl on here who have gave bad reviews, and of coarse I read about it after the purchase. Don't make the mistake with eibach!! Save your money instead of jumping into the cheap stuff it is really not worth it

It's the fact that mono tubes will last longer and have a lot better chance of not bottoming out. I'd rather buy something that will last

Does the svt comes with anti roll bars?
If not, is it worth it to buy them? How much would it improve handeling?
