I put the moog progressive rate springs (cargo coil?) that are listed for the earlier gen with sensatrac struts in my '00 SE because I wanted a firmer ride and didn't want it to start sagging again in another 20K miles. They installed easily and the ride height went back up to about 1/4" high over stock but after about 2 weeks I checked again and it had settled in to exactly stock ride height. It definately feels firmer but considering I had 150K miles on the original coils and struts, one spring was broken and the other was sagging 1-1/2 inch, it's not really a fair comparison. It feels very sure footed and I can have adult passengers in the back with little noticable sag (try that with your stock Taurus!). What is more noticeable to me than the ride stiffness in the back is how bad my front struts feel now. Overall I would do it again.
