So I have a final consensus, sorry for not posting for so long. I had a heavy carbon deposit in cylinder 6 and it got under the top compression ring, causing it to get stuck and giving it a slight piston slap and I lost my grounding strap on cylinder 4 because there was a finewire put into that cylinder and it went through the intake valve all the way to cylinder 6 and got wedged in-between the cylinder wall and piston causing it to get even worse. I did all 6 pistons and new piston rings. The cylinder wall was left without damage somehow so I just now got the motor back into the car and I should have it running tomorrow. Anyone needing or wanting to do a rebuild on a 3.0l 24v duratech I do recommend you get these pistons, they are good quality.
