Ya I live on Old Post Road.

Looking for opinions. I don't wanna go to overboard on my daily driver but I need more. I was thinking time for suspension. Should I go with springs or add a rear sway bar? I also want Cams, Header, and a tune but, I need it to handle better. What are your thoughts?

Sweet more utah peeps. Welcome to FF :). Damn I don't know about 18s, I'd be afraid to hit a bump. Lol. Marbs, if you're thinking about suspension, I'd say definitely get the SVT kit cause it comes with both I think. I know I found a site that had em for under $300 w/shipping. I don't remember if it was massive or CFM or some other site, but I know it was a good deal

I love my Koni shocks and springs, being able to adjust how stiff your car rides by turning a knob is just awesome

We have a set of Ford Racing springs in at work so all I'd have to order or struts. But I'm leaning towards the rear sway. Still not sure though.

if i were you marbs, id go with the ford racing drop, then go find a rear sway off a stock SES or buy one from an aftermarket company.

ill bet if you do a stock sway bar with a focus sprot rear stress bar and front lower stress you'd feel a huge difference.

oh, and since you have an 06 like me, most of everything you find wont fit yours. ford changed some stuff in 06. i think the front stuff is different, but the rear is the same. make sure w/e you buy will fit the 06 though. look in the W/T/B/S thread on here for a complete explanation.

and mike at hillbish can get you a good deal on the FR drop. which includes everything(except sway bar) and the springs installed on the struts for the front
