No, buy the Ford Race Dynamic springs like I did and slap them on. Takes it down a little more than 1.5in and they work great. Did mine yesterday. Made a huge difference, and I got them for under 175 at Tousley Ford from Steve.

175 bucks? That looks amazing. I was thinking about doing the SVT but I like your drop a lot. The SVT Suspension is over 200 bucks and has only about .5 " drop. What is included in the set?

The Ford Racing Dynamic springs. You CAN use stock sturts and shocks but they will only last a few more years after dropping it like this (1.5in), but that gives you time to get another 300 saved up for the Dynamic shock strut and sway bar set! In all actuality, there is a kit that includes everything for like 499.00 I just bought the springs for now and it works great and looks great.

Thanks for the heads up. I love the stance. The problem with buying it in sections for me is that my stock struts and shocks have had it. So I need the full upgrade.

(651) 447-4000, he will know what you need, tell him you want the Dynamic set up for your car and he will sell you the right kit. Tell him you want the kit that drops the car 1.5in with shocks and struts.
