a while back i bent a rim and front right strut. went out and bought the SVT suspension kit and had the rim balanced and stuck in back left. but its annoying as hell. anyone know of any good sites where i can get one?

Also, i have heard a little about the SVT headers...what good are they and where could i see into buying a used one if they meet my liking?

I see people on this site saying all the time that they svt header is the better one of the bunch. As for finding one used, you are going to have to keep your eye on the For Sale sections of the boards and might want to put a post up in the Wanted To Buy area.

as far as a rim is concerned....which one are you looking for?

i dunno about the bent rim, but the SVT header is the best one in the market. but note that you just cant add an SVT header to a regular zetec, i think you need a cat/off road pipe.

I used to get wobbly at 50-75 but that was becasue I needed new tires. You should also check tirerack.com for that svt wheel to see if they sell it cheaper.

Not hard at all. I'm sanding mine down and spraying them flat blach next week. Take ctop layer of paint, get um smooth as you want then mask them off and spray. Probably take a day to do it all.
