Roush suspension. 1.75inch drop. I don't believe the spring rates have been given out yet, for some odd reason.

I want to thank the mods for bring this thread back. Just wish that it hadn't been down for so long.

The Tokico seem to be the only dampers for the 05-07's so what do you think of them? How different are they from stock? I have the Eibach pro kit springs on my 07 do you think they will match my springs?

Something that needs to be added, MassiveSpeedSystem sells an adapter that lets 06-07 guys use 00-05 front struts and coilovers.

interchange?-rear sway bar

The 07 se stick that I drive doesn't have a rear sway bar. It sure feels like one would really help. What years will interchange with the 07? For weekday daily driver/weekend aggressive mountain road driving use is a stock piece
or stiffer aftermarket bar the way to go? So far the car is stock, but shocks/struts are due for replacement after 18,000 miles. Please suggest
high quality replacements. Lowering the car much at all is out-some daily use is over dirt roads. Thanks for the help.

You can get a kit that comes with the mounts required to add one (your car doesn't have anything for the rear sway to attach to) from Steeda.
