I have searched and found lots of threads with conflicting arguments pertaining to the mysterious package 157a. Some people have this but not that, and vice versa. I just want to know who has the most loaded out '96/97 bird. I will start with my own.

Package 157A
4.6 V8 (of course) -yes
Luxury/Lighting Group -yes
Moonroof -yes
Leather -yes
Keyless -yes
Anti-theft -yes
Antilock brakes -yes
ABS -yes
Traction Control -yes
Trac-Lok -no
Sport or LE package -sport
P225/60R16 BSW Touring Tires on 16" aluminum wheels - yes
larger rear stabilizer bar -yes
revised spring rates and front lower arm bushings -yes
revised shock absorber valving -yes
larger front disc brake rotors -yes
rear decklid spoiler with integral high-mount stop lamp -yes

Only things I don't have is Trac-lok and the LE package. If i recall correctly I think i have read that people have both of these but i could be wrong. Interested to see what other peeps have. If i have missed something by all means correct me. thanks

Mine is pretty basic so I won't post up on it.

It is either Traction Assist or Trac-lok, can't get both.
