That car looks great. Throw svt suspension/ brakes on that and it'll bring you down some, and handle like whoa!!

Yep, my next step is lowering it! I'm curious how much handling will improve.

Ford Racing vs SVT? Any preference?

SVT FTW! Eibach is really good too, thats what I have on my SVT, sportline springs (2" drop) and im soon to get some Koni yellow shocks... Im still running the stock SVT shocks with the Eibach springs... Its a little rough due the shocks being compressed but it handles like a boss!

Exact same

Also, you will need to find out the MFG date of your car. Early 2005's use the same suspension as 2000-2004, later 2005's changed the knucles

You just saved me a lot of future headaches. I'll look around for the date and see what's up.
