It's my first Explorer and my fourth Ford.
2017 Limited 3.5 na with 4wd

I'm thinking about getting the H&R lowering springs, what struts should I pair them with?

And what sites do you recommend for aftermarket stuff? I'm not having much luck on Google

I use steeda for most suspension parts. I went with their lowering springs along with Bilstein B6 struts snd shocks. Also look at their rear swaybar and their rear trailing arm. I also got their toe-link. They also carry the H&R lowering springs. I am currently awaiting for my lowering springs to arrive. I installed the swaybar snd trailing arms already and love it. Mine is 2017 Platinum with 3.5 ecoboost.

Just a few other things i have done. I installed a catch can to cut down on the amount of oil that gets sucked into the intake, and causes carbon build up on intake valves. (Common on direct-injection engines. Changed the PTU oil, and will every 20000 or so miles. Installed struts on my hood, along with a led strip for under hood lighting. Installed 91 octane tune for some xtra kick along with AFE cold air intake. Alot of discussion on the merits of CAI, but I installed anyway. I purchased a 160 degree thermostat, but haven鈥檛 installed yet. Once my suspension is complete, i will install my new drilled and slotted rotors. Looking forward to getting her finished up. She has 52000 miles on the Odometer.

Thanks for the info man 馃憤 mine isn't an Ecoboost so a CAI will probably be the extent of my performance mods, but the rest is good to know
