So far--and I've dumped some cash into this ride--suspension is by far the best thing for me personally. That includes a tune. I know many drag strip guys want the power, but as an old guy who doesn't hit the strip any more, the suspension was more important for me. I knew just by looking at pictures of a 2011 5.0 I would drop it and get rid of the 4x4 wheel gap. While I was waiting for the car to show up I already had parts waiting in the garage. *Kids had to eat peanut butter for a few months, but hey, they got over it...

BTW, I'm very glad to see more women choosing a V8 nowadays. It's refreshing!
