They would fit, but you would have to use the 06-07 upper strut mounts and hats.

And maybe I took it for granted. Blah. Fml.

But y'all don't care about that..

So I detailed my interior today. Cleaned the windows inside and out as well. And sprayed some wheel foam on my tires, so they're all nice and sparkly..but I didn't wash the car. Lmao. So the car itself is still dirty as hell. Fail?
you gotta do what's best for you man!

also, i dont think thats a fail, i do that (minus the tire cleaning) all the time. i cant remember the last time i washed my car lol but i clean the interior out at least every other month

Lol yeah I only cleaned the tires because when I was grabbing my Armor All wipes I noticed I had a can of tire foam. Then I remembered I was at work one day and some guy left it on his bumper and took off. I figured why let a half full can of perfectly good tire foam go to waste? Lol.

I also decided that me and my old man are going to tackle some of the problems with my car this week. Tomorrow night is the brakes. This weekend will be my SVT dampers and my end links. And I'll be taking it in to Ford to get the serpentine stuff done either tomorrow or Tuesday. So all that will really be left will be the audio, the wing, and the timing belt.

Yeaaah my dad has done drums before. So I'm definitely going to need him for those. I don't get why Ford did discs in front and drums on the rear. Why the hell not just do discs on front AND rear? Why change it up?

But whatever. I'm just excited to get my dampers in. I'm almost scared to drive my car as of late.

Have fun bonding with your pops doing some car work. I never had a dad to bond with doing that stuff and had to learn myself . I figure they left the foci like ours with disc/drum because it's more than efficient for a normal economy car. Maybe it keeps cost down also? The front does most of the work and I've taken apart rear drum cars with 125k with the shoes still in spec. Just make sure you do one side at a time so you have one to compare to.

Lol. Aww. You can come bond with us man. Then we can all bond at the strip club later.

But Nah, my dad is good shit. And I'm pretty sure there's nothing in the world he couldn't fix. Lol. Plus I think he has every tool known to man except a spring compressor. Lol.
