    2020 ST - Doing lowering springs and need torque specs

    Sorry for late response. I ended up not ordering the adapters. My wife is going through major medical issues and we need every dollar right now. Maybe early next year.

    Looks great @Gregertech! As for rear camber, it looks like there is an eccentric washer to adjust rear camber: https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/Ford__Edge/Alignment-Camber-Adjusting-Eccentric/53566044/7T4Z5K751A.html

    2020 ST - Doing lowering springs and need torque specs

    Ride has stiffened a tad but is still compliant over small bumps. I haven't had a chance to open it up on the twisties yet but maybe this weekend I'll get a chance. So far though, with a lower roll center and fairly flat body roll on corner exit with the hammer down, it feels good man. Proper length shocks with damping/rebound correction for the new springs would help though.

    2020 ST - Doing lowering springs and need torque specs

    Yup that's the writeup I used. I did remove the wiper arms. Some say it's not necessary but I found it easier to get the plastic top tray off. Make sure you get the wiper arms put back on in the exact same position as they came off otherwise they try to wipe beyond the window (ask me how I know). There has been a little settling in the 500 miles since the install, especially the rear. Maybe a 1/4" or so which makes it look even better. There is more rear camber now so the top of the tire tucks in just a tad. Fronts are fine. I'll be getting an alignment soon as I feel there is too much rear camber and am concerned about inner tire wear. I have ordered custom 15mm wheel adapters using these measurements from Motorsport Tech. Very high quality and durability. Used them when I had my Mustang. I'll post some pics and measurements in a little while. It's too cold out right now.

    Changing 2019 Edge's weak single horn to dual horn

    Old topic but I replaced the "Prius" horn on my 2020 ST with a set of air horns from Amazon: https://amzn.to/34KaVXp. Only $35 for the kit. Took about an hour taking my time. Hardest part was figuring out where to mount the horns. Found an existing hole on the plastic cross brace below the headlight. Was like it was meant for it. I used the factory horn mount to mount the new relay and a simple L-bracket to mount the pump. Horns sound amazing and scare the $hit out of errant lane changers.

    Ford Edge Towing Guide

    I know this is an old topic but I'm curious as to why the 2019 Escape with the 2.0 has the same tow rating of 3500 just like my 2020 Edge ST. Using the unibody argument @Gadgetjq refers to, it would seem the ST having a larger "frame", bigger brakes, better cooling and more power that it should have a higher tow rating. Thoughts on this? BTW, I'm very familiar with towing, capacities, weight and balance, tongue weight, hitch types, etc., having many RV's and tow vehicles. It befuddles me that other CUV's in the ST class have higher ratings.

    2020 ST - Doing lowering springs and need torque specs

    @CharlieB Thanks man! I was close with my guesses. The T50 torx bolts are near the front-most subframe bolts and help hold the bracket the front-most big subframe bolt goes through. Install went great. Took my time and was a total of 5 hours doing it in my garage. Ride impressions are that it's just a touch softer over minor bumps but gets aggressive fairly quickly, especially on corner exit with the hammer down. Very pleased with the change in characteristics.

    2020 ST - Doing lowering springs and need torque specs

    Anybody? Doing this install today.
  10. Just got a 2020 Edge ST and am doing H&R lowering springs. I found the instructions here on the forum (awesome and thanks) but I can't seem to find the torque specs for the various suspension bolts. Can someone fill in the blanks for me and any others I will need? Appreciate it! Front 1. Strut top hat nut: 2. Strut to knuckle bolts: 3. Strut tower bolts: 4: Sway bar link nuts: Rear 1. Subframe bolts (big ones): 2. T50 torx bolts: 3. Upper shock mount bolts: 4: Sway bar link nuts:
