Good morning and thanks in advance for the help. I have a totally stock SE that I am looking to tighten the handling up on.

It looks like the Ford Performance FR3 handling kit and a bolt on rear bar stiffener from the ST or Corksport are the right first steps?

Thanks!

In addition, I’d upgrade the front sway bar too. I haven’t done the sway bars yet, but the Ford suspension tightened everything up surprisingly well. Nothing to write home about, but it’s definitely noticeable.

Thanks for the fast response Dean - is there a front bar recommendation here that people like for street (not track or overly harsh)?

I have to say I’m a bit dumbfounded that I didn’t discover how fun these are until just now. Great car.

I’d just search around. Same year ST bars will fit. I just haven’t spent the time yet. I had my shop put the Ford suspension on with zero issues about 40,000 miles ago and it’s still doing well. Total drop was about an inch after it settled which has the wheel and tire I use centered perfectly in the wheel well.

I bought mine new in 14 with 10 miles on it for home health. I’m at 184,000 and still on the original clutch. I changed the timing belt, water pump, and thermostat at 181,000. It’s a great little car.

Highly recommend the rear torsion bar. for $100 its pretty noticeable improvement on corners and the over roll. Super easy install as well. I put this on mine and its been well worth it!
