Anyone have experience with the "Ford Racing" shocks and struts made by KW? I found a cheap set that I'm thinking of picking up...

Replacing the SVT's o2 sensors has made her drive a bunch smoother... I lost that low-end hesitation I was getting and some "sputtering" when I had the cruise control on. I guess they tell the computer the air/fuel mixture to use so mine musta been all screwy.

BTW, couldn't they mount the o2 sensors on the side of the cat instead of the top??? What a PITA to get to!

Now I just need to get her in for a smog check so I can get plates and stop getting pulled over...
