Cheapest I've found was just under $1K but that's Megan Racing, D2, Ksport. Brands like that. KW's are anywhere from $1,500 -$3,500 for a set.

Yeah, the main thing to look for is that they come with their own adjustable caster/camber plate. So you don't have to reuse your stock strut mount. And that the coilovers hight adjustment is inverted into the strut and allows maximum travel of the strut. Supposedly, a setup like that will maintain the stock ride quality at any hight.

For some reason, the 2010 uses the same control arms, sway bars and end links as the '05-'09. I found this out when I ordered front lca's from AM and it turned out they bolted up to my K member just fine but the shaft of the ball joint was smaller and fit really loose when I bolted it all together.

That was back in 2010 when I first bought my '11. It was an advertising error on AM's part. They assumed since '10 was the same as '09 then '11 must be the same as '10. Damn you ford! (Shakes fist)

These are my top three. (Under $1K) Now, Fords parts department claims that the struts for the '05-'14 are the same.

I'm going to be making a decision this week. I'm waiting for my brother to give me his two cents. He's way more of a suspension buff then I am.

Plus, I've pm'd all three of those suppliers. I want to make sure these all come with pillow ball top mounts and camber adjustments. So I can do away with my strut mounts and MM C/C plates. I'll be selling those shortly after.
