    Question - do these differ for the EcoBoost or should they be the same?

    I have no idea which is why I stated they were for a GT. I would guess they are mostly the same since I don't recall any of places I collected them from mentioning otherwise. But your guess is as good as mine here.

    Added the oil drain plug torque even though it's not really suspension.

    Dude! (Coaster)

    That is one one the most comprehensive and useful posts on this fourm that I've seen to date. I'll be printing this out and putting a copy in my garage.

    Thanks you much for putting that together for the rest of us. Much appreciated!

    I should have all the front socket sizes soon since I'm going to swap springs again.

    Please help me out if you use these and take some notes to help me fill in the blanks. Being able to grab the right socket the first time saves so much effort especially if you're working on jack stands.
