Ford recalls 211,000 vehicles for suspension woes - Roadshow
https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/ford-flex-taurus-lincoln-mkt-recall-suspension/
Current: 2018 SHO.  Burgundy Velvet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat - non PP - Driver Assist Pkg - max optioned - optional non flower wheels - Drop in K&N air filter. Thinking about a "light" tune this time around. 🤔

I wonder how many have fought that toe link trying to work on the suspension.  2019 is immune.  Yay.
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

I like that idea. Maybe I can time things right to cut 1/2 coil off my HR and reinstall and then take in and get aligned for $free.99.
