Default FRPP Versus Roush Versus Steeda Versus Eibach

This isn't meant as a bash fest, but does someone here have any idea, in the case I could get a VERY good deal on FRPP what the primary difs are between FRPP and the others?

Is the FRPP pack simply rebadged Roush?

Just wondering because my cost can be a lot better and the kits look fairly similar (and are priced fairly close in retail)

The difference in what regard?
Road course track days?
Drag strip track days?
Canyon carving?
AutoX?
Looks and daily driving?

1- quality of product
2- primary benefit -- does the FRPP set up tilt wildly toward one of the many things you're mentioning (street, strip, ax, track, comfort relative to the other kits))

Im not positive, but i think the eibach, and frpp are progressive rate springs

not sure about roush, they may be the same as steeda sports which are linear

Assuming you are talking about the coil-over setups...

I love my Roush Trak Pak suspension. From I've found online the Roush and the Eibach kits are very similar.

Quote:
the same supplier makes the dampers for Eibach as makes our Trak Pak dampers. I know for a fact that they rock as long as the base tuning in the damper is set in the proper range that will work for you. One thing that's nice about the Trak Pak suspension is the compression is set for you so you won't dial in to much and damage parts or lose more grip than you wanted

Up until about a year ago the people that manufacture the Trak Pak dampers were making the dampers for Eibach

Eibach builds their own Pro Street S coilovers in-house. They are mono-tube, hand assembled, rebuildable and are the best bang for your buck for a good street coilover.

What are we discussing here? Suspension parts in general or something specific?

The FRHP is specifically designed for either the V8 or V6 depending on what car you have. They are designed and race tested by Ford and when installed by and authorized Ford dealer, the parts and installation are covered under warranty, something to think about if you have a brand new car under warranty; aftermarket parts are not covered and may become a hassle if there ever is a warranty claim.

The FRHP is also a complete package, dont need to buy anything else.

Actually, much of this is incorrect.

Ford leaves warranty voidance up to the individual dealerships. The warranty carried on Ford Racing parts only applies to the parts.

asked roush about their spring rates, this is what they said :


"Thanks for contacting ROUSH Performance.

Spring rates are proprietary information. Sorry we cannot provide this information"

How are you supposed to determine if you want the springs if you have no idea how stiff they are?
