Question Mike from Hilbish ford

Hey Guys I have quite a bit of questions, does anybody know if he's still selling the loweing kit for $380? I thought they used to have a sponser forum on here. I believe it's the frrp kit that lowers 1.5', how does that compare to the eibach? I've also heard that eibach manufactures that kit?

First off Mike does not work in the Hilbish parts department. It's my understanding that Hilbish still sells Ford Racing parts to FF members at a discount. What the current prices are will require you to give them a call. They do not have a person actively participating in our forum (like Mike did) any more. Tousley Ford also offers good prices. Most of their prices are on their website as well.

yes, it would be the same kit. they both will probably sell it for the same price as every employee gets the same discount.. my step dad gets the same discount here and he works in parts.

as far as how it compares to the eibach, i've heard it's the same kit with fords name on it.

dude you could probably run 17s with a 2inch drop. just pic a good tire size. roll fenders if needed. 1.5 will fit 17s no problem.
i heard the drop actually drops it 1.4 give or take.
just check out some pics of the drop on here :)
