OK,I get it. Ford made the car stiff...and the springs stiff... and the damping stiff.

My dealer made it stiffer...

I just checked the air pressure. Delivered with 51 PSi in each tire!

Adjusted down to 41 f 38 rear on the 19" SC2's and life is good again. No stiffer that my modded MCS in normal mode now. :smile-new:

Wow, same thing all my tires were set to 50 PSI; I set them to your suggestion 41/38 ...better. There is still some pogging on the highway and it is stiff, but I love the car and love driving it.


....So, say what..dat 'pension ain't stiff this here's a race car ,,Yah :driving:

That 51 PSI thing happens all the time. The minimum wage service prep guys set the tires at the "max pressure" on the sidewall. Happened to me three or four times. Always check the pressure before you leave the dealer!

They ship from the factory with 50+ psi. It's the guy prepping the car, he didn't check and adjust the pressures. Consider yourself lucky he took the shipping blocks out, that big yellow sticker on the middle of the windshield has been getting missed since day 1.
