Hello Fellow Ford Fusionites,
 1st post. Have perused this site daily since the day after i picked up my Blk 06 in late August. Goldmine of info & pics!!! Mods include fog lites & bezels, indicating frt & rr side markers, stainless exhaust tips, Eagle Alloy 192's w/ Fuzion 245/45-17 ZR1's & a Razzi 4 pc bod kit & MVS low profile wing w/ brake lite painted UA with Silkens Armor Paint in my basement ready to be installed...soon. Also be installing 24mm frt & 16mm rr blk urethane swaybar bushings to firm up the cornering. Will post pic's of bod kit/wing install under exterior mods. See 'Multimedia' thread under 'Sweet Fusion' for pics of this bod kit.

Pics are a little small.

Also, you might consider upgrading the swaybars themselves rather than just the bushings. A larger rear bar makes a HUGE difference in how the car handles, and doing the bushings in the front is gonna be as much work as replacing the bar, so you might as well while your in there.

The reason I say do the bar at the same time is in order to get to the bushings in the front requires dropping the subframe, which isn't something I'd want to do more than once. Just something to consider.

The wheels look good. Now it's time for some shorter coils.

Hi hwm3,
Thanx for the wheel compliment! I've been underneath & checked out the swaybar setup with regards to a R & R. Rear would be a piece o cake...but front looks involved. Been lookn for manuals...haynes, chiltons...non existant @ this point. As far as lowering...yes...it wood look good...but @ this time my warranty takes presidence...& my service manager informed me when i got my 1st oil change @ 1k miles that engine, drivetrain & suspension mods...especially lowering springs wood void the warranty...sooo...i'll wait till Ford puts out a 'sport', SVT or 'whatever' version Fusion with a factory lowered suspension & approach it from that aspect...in the mean time...i'll concentrate on cosmetic mods for the 'personal touch'. Thanx for ur input though...i appreciate all the info i can get.
