2017 MKC Aftermarket Coilover / Handling Improvement Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I have a 2017 3.0TT AWD MKZ and I am interested in tightening up the suspension a bit. 

 

1. Anything that anyone has done in this space to improve handling

2. Are there any performance coilovers that are out there?

3. If you have tried them what were your results?

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Does your car have the Drivers Sport Package that was available in 2017?  There are no coilover shocks for the MKZ.  There has to be a market for companies to produce parts such as this.  There isn't much of a demand for MKZ upgrades.

 

Before posting a question such as this in a forum you've just joined, it would behoove you to use the 'Search' function  to see if the topic has come up before.  Here is a very well-written thread explaining what one of our members did to upgrade the handling of his 2017 MKZ 3.0 AWD.

Outside of H&R, Steeda, and I think Vogtland for springs, you are out of luck for off the shelf bolts ons. I will say thay with the H&R's, sport mode when the dampers firm up is very nice. Comparable to a 8k-10K spring coilover but not harsh at all. Very planted and firm. And I am a HUGE coilover fan, but im very pleased with the springs and sways only on my 3.0TT MKZ. The sway bars, and nice tires really let this car shine. I am hard pressed to want coilovers for the mkz after the overhaul linked above. If I were to add anything at this point, it would be adjustable sway bar links (steeda offers some and the rears on our cars are from the mustang so many options there) and a performance/aggressive alignment. 

 

My guess is - you could run a Fusion coilover kit, but you would have to deal with the loss of e-dampers, aka lincoln drive control and whatever codes and other systems sync up with that.

so wait a second.... just looked at the specs between KSports mustang coilovers and the Fusion's.... the are VERY similar. How did I miss this in all my research. You could probably do some OEM part# measuring/referencing and confirm cross compatibility. only difference in the kit specs seems to be rear spring rate is stiffer on the stang. Its a divorced setup in the rear on both cars, so you likely have lots of options if you wanted to try either of these kits.
