You can probably get away with your stock struts/shocks for a while depending on how worn they are now. I would save up and get a good quality set of shocks/struts like the Koni STR.T or Tokico HP.

What he said. Start saving now and get caster camber plates (Maximum Motorsport) and start saving up for some better struts and shocks you will thank your self if you do it.

Ideally you would want to install caster camber plates at the same time to help get your alignment set right after you install the springs. Since it looks like the springs you got only drop about 1.5" or so you'll be fine for a bit. But I highly recommend getting some plates with in the next 2-4 months so you don't wear out the inside of your tread

I've heard those springs are garbage. I think someone on here had a set and hated them


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Agree 100% ford racing C springs or the Sr performance springs if you want a nice drop without breaking the bank I've had good luck with both sets. Eibach is the way to go if price isn't an issue

Instead of the caster camber plates you can buy some camber bolts from am and it will help your alignment for the time being

The S-Techs actually drop 2.5" if I remember right.

CompOrange had them on his V6, I think the reason he hated them was because the front sat higher than the rear.


OP you can run those without upgrading the shocks and struts for a short amount of time but at a 2"+ drop things tend to wear out very quicky.
