Last night I finally decided to install my Energy Suspension rear endlinks and get rid of the crappy Ford ones. While I was in there I decided that the Roush springs were not quite low enough, so hacked the locating tabs on the rear struts. This was all fairly easy as the suspension was taken apart for the lowering springs in January. Hacking the tabs and settling the strut back into the knuckle was no problem. The problem came with installing the new endlinks. The ES endlinks are about an inch shorter than the stock endlinks, so it took a little finesse (BFH and a floor jack ;)) to get the sway bar connected back up. Overall I am happy with how everything went. My rear now sits about 1/2" shorter and the sway bar ends are parallel with the ground on account of the shorter endlinks, which I hear is better for handling (I felt no difference). But at least I know that the chances of the endlinks snapping while in the middle of a turn has been greatly reduced, and that is all I care about.
Ok enough talking. Picture time!
