I missed it in my first read-through, but can we talk about this line from the article? :

"Ford Racing made a small batch of inverted coil-over struts, but not many were sold. If you can find one on the used market—they’re rebuildable—expect to pay around $1500." 

I (think) have a set of said coil-overs, who are they referring to that can do the rebuild?

The little Escort that can was out at Road Atlanta this past weekend, had a fantastic time.

I like mine. Great on gas and reliable. 5 speed, short throw shifter, 21mm rear sway bar, strut tower brace, iceman intake, modified air cleaner, k&N filter and under drive pulley.  JBA shorty header and NGP0 ecm on the shelf waiting for me to install one day.

I had the ford racing coil overs. They were extremely stiff. Also despite the huge rear spring I still couldn’t get it to rotate. Slotted strut mounts would help, but I don’t remember seeing those available.

Ford for awhile sold a kit to enlarge the the mount and eccentic bolt.    I had the kit on my zx2sr.

I think the suspension on the SR along with a hefty rear bar, 2.5 neg camber, more caster made for a good track car as well as dd.
