I called Ford Racing and was given more details on the kit. He did state that some of the parts had Euro part numbers. The springs are the M-5300-S that are already available on the Ford Racing Parts website. The kit also comes with both front and back Shocks/Struts, and both front and back stability bars. The bushings and all of the misc hardware is also included so that every piece is replace during the installation.

I will be giving Steve a call at Tousley Ford tomorrow to order the kit. The new ETA is 12 October 2012. http://tousleyfordparts.com

I just ordered the Steeda rear sway bar today, hoping in the near future this suspension is in the cards to finish it off. Curious about specs of the components such as spring rate etc.

Any idea on what it might cost to get this installed?

I would guess that a dealership might charge around $500 for the installation. Email Steve at Tousley Ford to get a great price and you will have saved some money to pay for the installation.

Sweet, I can't wait to start seeing photos of this installed. I probably won't get mine until my taxes come back, but it'll be nice to see it on other peoples cars. I'm also curious as to how much of a drop it is. I'm not really interested in dropping my car too much, I just want less body roll.

So I don't see the Handling Kit on tousley's Ford Racing section, but I would guess you could call them and order it.

My real question is what are the specs for the kit besides the Ford Racing springs?

I was reading elsewhere on the internet and it was suggested the Ford Racing suspension kit was similar to the optional suspension offered on the Titanium.

I am curious to see more details on the Ford Racing kit.

I'd love to see someone do a true comparison... All is speculation until the rubber meets the road
