i think you might have become a bit spoilt 66 coupe.. the XT doesnt handle that badly for what is a base model car... compare how a base XT handles straight out of the dealer to what an early 90's falc felt like.. ford have come a LONG way with susp developement

I'm glad somebody said it. I thought the XT handled very well when I drove one. When I get mine I don't think I'll even touch the suspension.. 8-)

ah well, were all entitled to our opinions, but there is a big difference in handling between a std XT and one that has been lowered, and same between the std XT and the XR6. I felt that the std XT was somewhat too soft and had a lot of body roll, which was more pronounced at higher speeds around bends etc.

heres a guy that i knows ba. Its had 2.5inch drop in the front and 4 in the rear. It is also rolling on 20s. So it is possible to drop them fairly severly.
