The roush handling pack seem like a better deal at just 1390.
Before i bought my car i tested a 2012 roush stage 2 and it had that suspension. The ride was like stock but handle muchhhhh better.

I have the ford racing suspension. It looks better with the 1" drop and it handles a lot better. Yes it's a lil rough on bad roads but it performs great.

Rides like a race car, corners like a race car. I think it helps handle the power added by the Edelbrock supercharger. I am satisfied with the M-FR3-MGTA. Had the Ford dealer install it so I know it was done right.
Anybody need the original suspension? Only 3k miles on it!
Thanks. How often do you find you use the adjustments?

Is it fairly soft on the street? i plan on getting the adjustables to go with my k springs i already have on and some cc plates.. the factory struts are pretty rough with just the k springs.. i live in arkansas so there are some shotty roads and low water bridges, potholes, etc...

I haven't made any adjustments other than setting them to Street. I have been to the drag strip and to a road course. Handling was right on. It is rougher than stock suspension, but I kinda enjoy that. If you have 'road hazards' you will be looking to avoid them, but it's not reason enough to stay with the stock suspension.

I just looked at your link, that is what I was looking at before. No mention of adjustable, so I assumed it wouldn't have it. That's a pretty big selling point to overlook. FRPP marketing dept dropped the ball on that one

I was planning the Koni STR.T all along. Now I am just gonna save for adjustables.Too much conflicting stuff about buying non-adjustables.If I am gonna spend that much I sure as hell want to be happy.
If somebody is looking to lower with "K" springs and do adjustables at same time or later....There is a Vendor who sells the Springs with GT 500 mounts for 209.00. Good buy,instaed of buying seperate.

Avengd, adjustable or not? Decent cost difference so trying to determine if I need it
No. Not that I'm aware of. Just checked no they are not. I didn't think they were.

I'm not sure I would be adjusting them much anyway. My Pony is not a DD and other than cruising and the occasional trip to the 1/4 mile I don't see a reason for it. But everyone has their desires.

There is a list price difference of about $400. You are getting a different, better shock and I think the adjustability option is worth it.

Did you guys also get a panhard bar? Noticed it is not included. Dropping the car without a panhard seems ill-advised.

Sorry for all the questions, but this will be my biggest mod. I can already see the drivers side tire is just a hair further out of the wheel well before anything is done
