Performance handling pack

Anyone install ford's performance handling pack and what's your opinion on it? Or anyone have other suggestions for handling upgrades?

I've got it and love it. I don't think you can go wrong. The stick is sweet and handles well. The pack just makes it even better.

Good to know. I saw the setup and looked pretty solid. Wish it came in black rather than ford blue. My struts are already popping with just the Eibach's Pro Kit springs.

What you do for brakes? You have the brembo package or you upgrade? I ran across a setup from Baer [1].

Also Getting my Christmas list for the wife. I'm ordering the MGW short throw [2] tomorrow and a black with grey pearl rally stripe ball [3].

Trying to get a few things in order before I strap on the TVS2300.

I'm not sure about the Baer brakes. But you can't go wrong with the MGW shifter. I have that as well and love it.

I know my '11 has the 14" rotors up front but the tubing looks like what is on the performance pack. I guess I can call ford racing tomorrow but just wanted to check with you guys on here. The pack was for '05 -'13. Just want to make sure I'm not buying what I already have.

I know I have the brembo package but just wondering if that upgrade is the same strength suspension is the performance pack that I originally noted in this thread. I know I need the gt500 struts and springs but other than that do I have all the other upgraded parts?

The sway bars are an upgrade from the stock brembo sway bars, and so is the gt500 upper strut mount. Everything in this package is an upgrade, or needed for the new spring rate/drop.
