I can understand that. I had the M-3000-ZX3A kit on my 2002 ZX5 with the Euro SVT 17 inch wheels for years and really liked the way it performed.

It's worth noting that the FRPP springs that are designed to go with the strut kit are no longer made/available. You can, however, use those struts with any 08-11 style spring but you must use 08-11 strut mounting hardware as the tops of the 08-11 springs are a narrower diameter than the 06-07.

Yes thanks. Are you referring to the Ford racing M-5560 springs? I do have to get the strut mounting hardware too. Whose mounts did you use. I was thinking Motorcraft or Moog.

Yeah, unless some of those springs surface from hiding, I remember the sales on them when Ford sold off their stock.

Aftermarket moved them out fast.

Have always liked Moog suspension parts but I can get the stock mounts from my Ford parts guy for $17.49ea. and the Moog part from Rock Auto for $26.79ea. I don't care that much about the cost but want to get the best part for the application. I don't know who makes the Motorcraft part but my 2011 SES at 150K miles still has the stock ones in and never had a problem with them.
