Either I haven't searched hard enough or am being lazy, but does anyone know or has anyone tried putting 2nd gen springs on a 3rd gen 3? I'm assuming the suspension is relatively the same if not the same.

Unlikely. No harm in trying though.:)
Haha, well trying to find out before I sell him the springs. Don't want to sell something that won't fit and screw that guy over. Has no one done this before or tried? Maybe I just need to find pics of stock gen 3 suspension.

The gen3's architectecture is totally new. No Ford in it.:)
Haha I do know that :p. After doing research I noticed the front struts definitely look different and they finally did away with the stupid strut into a knuckle design, and they finally went with two bolt design that I've seen on so many other cars.

Only thing I'm thinking is that it's just springs anyways...so as long as it sits in the grooves correctly that would be fine.
