Need Help!

Im shopping for suspension on my SVT, stock dampners with FRPP lowering springs, and came across these on amazon. Is there a difference between them?

The one with amazon prime will ship faster and costs less when you look at the shipping on the other one. otherwise, nope. go with the prime one, amazon backs that stuff like crazy. i got cds i ordered the week of christmas the next day around noon with Prime.

if you dont have a prime membership, their super saver shipping will still be free and take about 5 business days. caleb is right, items fullfilled by amazon will be the better route; their customer service is pretty good.

Id give Tousley Ford a call and see if they still have that kit available, they give us some good deals on Ford parts. Call 1-800-328-9552 and ask for Steve, see how they compare to Amazon's price shipped

nope, same suspension... worthwhile if your stock suspension has seen more than 70k miles but you'd have no use for the sway bar that comes with it. It would be the same bar you have and those dont "wear" out. ford racing also makes a kit that lowers normal focus about 1.5" which would lower your svt about half of that.

These are the springs, can call Tousley Ford and ask if they have them in stock and the shocks/struts to go with them
