Ford Racing Shocks/Struts/K Springs - Thoughts?

Hey guys,
So after much debate I think i may have decided to with the Ford Racing Shocks/Struts/K Springs kit. My car wont be seeing the track anytime soon, so this is mainly going to be for looks. I am trying to maintain the best ride quality possible while lowering. Does anybody recommend any additional hardware along with this kit? I have changed my mind about a million times on what to do, but really need to settle. Help me please!!

All I can say is WOW! 1.5 years on mine -- about 12k miles on them. Virtually no nose dive on braking, no roll, and I'm at mid-setting (got the adjustable kit). Low, but not too low - rarely scrapes anything, but curbs are too high so park short of them.
Poly bushings are creaky but if you stay on top of them with good lube, not so bad. It'll change everything for you. That and an MGW shifter.

I installed the FRPP Handling Pack on my car last month and love it. It came with everything, shocks, struts, springs, front and rear sway bars, rear links and two bags of OEM hardware. The only thing I had to add was an adjustable panhard bar and to get the alignment checked when I was finished. I have photos of the install in my garage if interested.

Kingstrider,
I'd definitely be interested in seeing the pics.

Adjustable strut mounts, panhard bar, and UCA (to correct camber, panhard, and pinion angle respectively) - all things that matter more on a daily-driven vehicle. Bumpsteer kit yielded great results for me as well.
