The frames are the same, be it a GT or a V6. Suspensions will be drfneieft in springs.As to the power, it'll take a lot to twist a frame but you can get sub-frame stiffeners if you feel you have that much power and need it.

Do you drive a 1999 FORD F-250?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
