Shouts out to Tousley, kind of..

The ST struts came in the other day, only thing was it was only one strut and one rear right shock so if someone ordered Ford Racing rear shocks for the MK3 FO, and you have my strut, let me know But its okay! i called up the fine men and women over at Tousley and they sorted things out perfectly. This part really made me respect how they handled it; after i dropped off the shock at the UPS store (a couple hours after it was scanned) i got a confirmation email from Tousley saying they were next day air shipping it to me. -They have my business for as long as I'm pushing a ford.

You Betcha!

Awesome. I love those guys. Even in person they give the same great service.

on a side note, I thought I heard elsewhere that the ST struts are not a direct swap. Is that true? What needs to be changed?

The front struts are a direct swap. No additional parts needed, although I advocate the replacement of the strut mount and bearing when replacing the struts. The ST-specific strut mount is stiffer, as well.

The rear shocks are not a direct swap, though.

Couldnt thank you more for your help with everything also, but time to send back the strut and try to get my order correct from them finally. Two left struts dont make a pair..
