Yes verts have them stock, but like most Ford parts, they are crap. That link you posted is a good upgrade and worth it.

yup, vert do come stock with them. and if i am not mistaken they are only bolted on and are rather flimsy. the mm full lengths welded on would be a good upgrade.

+ 1!!

Verts come stock with them, and I think bullitts do too. But yeah like all these guys said, it's a good idea to upgrade. MM SFCs are awesome units.

+1...I dont know how much of a difference you would feel but the MM pieces/aftermarkets pieces are much stronger

I'd only do it yourself if you have access to a muffler-shop style lift (one that keeps the weight on the suspension).

If you jack up your car in your garage, you'll put flex in the chassis, and when you weld the SFC on, you'll "weld in" that flex permanently (exactly what you don't want).

thats why they have to use the jack for oil changes where the wheels stay on the tracks.

what about car ramps?

My uncle went to trade school for welding so I was going to have him do it. Although there is a shop who does full lengths for 178 around hear...so maybe do that

Ramps should be fine, provided while up their the chassis is "at rest" and you have enough room to work under the car.
