I'm confused. What does the OE stand for when listing spring rates? Why does the Mountune listing have two sets?

OE= Original Equipment. They are comparing their spring rates with the OE spring rates. BTW, the mountune springs, at least for the 4 door are made by eibach for mountune. Mountune has two sets, one for the two door FiST and one for the four door FiST.

Huge fan of the H&R springs, for $200 shipped the price can't be beat. Install took literally 1 hour flat, the rears about 10 minutes, the fronts 50 minutes including beer and smoke breaks. All you really need is a solid spring compressor and thats it, this is really the easiest most straight forward lowering spring install I have ever done!

I was able to do it without a compressor. I used 4 zip ties on each strut before I removed the top hat and they were strong enough to keep it from popping violently.

Wow, but I wouldn't recommend your zip tie method, seems a little dangerous to say the least.

Is the Ford factory M-FR3-FA kit the standard handling pack on the ST, and an upgrade for non ST Models, or is it an upgrade for the ST as well?

That seems like a really reasonable price for a complete suspension from FoMoCo with dampers and all....
