      It would be intresting to see how this set up compares with an average aspire swap plus KYBs and FMS springs.

          I remember seeing that article some time ago... It was either on the FMS site or the old FF.com site when Rich owned it...

            They added a sway bar in rear; aspire adds a sway bar in rear.

            They added aggressive shocks; we have KYBs

            They added stiffer and shorter springs; FMSs are shorter, but I am not sure about how much stiffer.

            I wonder If that car is still in motor trend's possession. Maybe we could convince them to lend it to the Fordfestiva.com group for some testing.

            Their car handles better than my 99 integra ls. Strange, I never thought the handling of a festiva could be so good with such little mods.

              It is still on the FMS site. Under owner resources.

                      My 88 L receipt says $6700. That seems high though. Oh, and that is an lx.

                            It's a good thing you don't read the stickies, you might of learned something.Poverty produces creativity
