Just did Motorcraft Struts and the cargo coils in the rear of my 03 along with Raybestos pro grade strut mounts. I do not mind the slightly stiffer ride at all and definitely like the back wheels not having all the camber. Only annoyance was that part combination did not include strut washers and the nuts so have to reuse washers and happened to have some new nuts on hand. Rear suspension after after a couple of days driving measures 26 5/8 on one side and 26 3/8 on the other.

My 00 also has a broken rear spring and I ordered another set of cargo coils for it as I like them. It might get the used struts from the 03 to save some money as not only is a spring broken but they both leak too.
