nyse...yea, i'm lookin into buying the pro kit from eibach (springs and dampers), because i want it low, but not too low, i had the sportlines on my sedan and i loved the ride height, just not the ride itself..


for like a month i had some cheap pos coilovers on it..from ebay, the springs were like 4" longs olol...go figure..was awesome cuz the car was slammed, but it fscked my dampers up...

Eibach Pro-Kit here i come! :)

SVT, dampers and springs. Ford Racing strut tower brace.
Rear sway bar to come this Spring with new rear sub-frame member (SE model) and new wheels and tires (17x7.5).
The absolute best thing I did was a 4-wheel alignment and camber adjustment after the SVT kit was installed.
For the price, $99.00, four bolts and itís done, I think the strut tower brace made the biggest difference in handling but the SVT damper and springs make a huge difference as well.

Yup. $230.00 from your dealer with "easily adjustable camber and sway bar mounts".
I thought I would get that installed with the new wheels and tires and then get a 4-wheel alignment and camber adjustment again.
I should be ready for the mountains this summer.
