The front sway bar was redesigned in 98 or 99 and they made it more firm and solid like what EE would provide anyway, so therefore there's no point to upgrade the front swaybar unless you drive a 1995-1997 Explorer. So the rear sway bar is all you'll need to enjoy better handling.
I say go for it I have the X-spec lowerign kit on my X, I do not have the air dam as I try to keep it stock looking as possible otherwise car theives like to steal the nice things.
OF course I didn't buy mine all at once I started with the sway bars a while back, then finally broke down when I needed to replace the shocks and called John and asked him to send me the lowering shocks and the X-spec kit, it really doesn't take that long to do you take a Saturday afternoon with the right tools and you will be done by that night and out driving around.
I have a question for John, I have a 2dr Sport, but I want to lower the rear with lowering blocks. Can I order EE's lowering kit for the 4drs and use those blocks to lower my 2dr? If I can avoid getting universal lowering blocks then I'm for it. Thanks.
Utilizes the 4-door (multileaf) lower kit ZD5630 $169.95
The shocks are $69.95ea. X 4 = $279.80
You can use the lowering bocks for a 95-00 Sport but it will usually sit to low at the rear. It is difficult to get the front low enough to match the rear. We usually just swap the spacer plate at the rear and do the torsion twist at the front (95-00).
Thanks for the info John! I have a 1999 Sport and have been thinking about doing the torsion twist in the front and I've just been gathering opinions on whether I should go with universal blocks or just relocate the spacers to lower my rear.
After you input, I'll probably just relocate the spacers to lower the rear. Might you have any detailed instructions on how to go about doing the whole procedure of relocating the spacers? Thanks very much!
