From what I've read, that strut makes a big difference in handling (while the 19" wheels make a minor difference at best). Does anyone know the part # for this? I've looked all over the fordparts.com website with no luck.
I put one on my 2006 GT and bought it from Ford Racing. Seems like forever ago, but guys would ask me, "what the heck is that"? Now they are common and factory installed in some cases. It does in fact make a huge difference. I'd say the part isn't listed yet at FRPP, but I'm sure they'll sell them. Give them a call, they are always glad to help and give info.
