LASTSHO, regarding the decision on OEM parts.. I tried changing a few items years ago and was immediately surprised at the failure. In my humble opinion Ford probably did test these cars a million miles or whatever their rules are. One mod leads to next mod, etc. That was the feeling I got from the slightest change of any part. Other than killing batteries of any manufacture, which I now found amusing, an SHO is just going to beat to death any suspension you give it. Batteries...each new one given to Snowwind would take a little time more or less for him to figure out a way to killllllllit. I mean from 59.00 to 93.00 didn't matter, "gold" posts and "platinum"leads wouldn't make a damn. It's just his favorite toy to abuse!!!I lost count, maybe 7 of them. But I will say this, other than 2 or 3 times when his power control locks for the passenger side don't work(and they correct themselves when he's good and ready!) no electrical nightmares....I've never had wiring harness touched except for dusting off. All relays are original, all sensors are original, firewall solenoid replaced once(10.50 big bucks), fuses are original, no arching, smoking wires, no electrical headlight intermittant stopping, all the typical nonesense.. not him. So, batteries for breakfast o.k. you got it!!!Go Snowwind. Gotta love the old boy, he's got class.
