fords are renoun for their ride height inconsistancy..... particularly e series. if it makes you feel any better i replaced the fairmont suspension with xr6 in my mont and the back dropped nearly 30mm but the front hasn't dropped much at all. maybe factory fords are destined to be lebonese scud launchers.

I am suspicious the EF shocks are different, the lower mounting bracket that fits onto the lower control arm may be wider, and there may be other differences. I think monroe specify different part numbers. Check into it some more.
