With a 1.5" drop on the Focus, you will need camber arms in the rear; I believe the front can be adjusted (or inexpensive camber bolts). At about .5" of drop, I'm already noticing negative camber in the rear, though not enough to need the arms (alignment will tell me for sure this weekend). Heep in mins that our Foci don't have a large wheel gap to start with and the shocks/struts are tuned accordingly.

I think the steeda pics were taken right after the install. My car had less wheel gap on the Eibach Pro-Kit. Either that or the sedan sits higher than the HB. Idk, just my observation.
