Why doesn't any one, or at least it seems,don' space the rear wheels out. Is it me or does no like that look? I have looked at many picutres and to me it liioks like Im going to be the frist. If you have spaced your wheels out how much and do you like it? I know that this ? is just a littel[offtopic] but I would like some of you to help me w/ my little personal problems. I really have no one else to go to[bigcry] . you guys are like my family now[drinking].
P.S. Im a noob to this site and I just bought a focus[welcome]

I like the eourpean look, and it helps on corrnering w/ a wider wheel base.

Why not upgrade your suspension?

17" x 7.5" with 45 offset = flush with the fender. Looks perfect, no need for spacers.

I cant lower the suspension cuz I got an 07 the aftermarket hasn't cought up yet. and my wheels only stick out about 1/8 in. from fender

There are suspension kits for the 07.

? were I have yet to find one and if they accually do exist should I get nwe dampers as well or do they come w/?

I don't know the specifics but I think you can put Eibach springs on Tokico shocks/struts. Get the Steeda rear sway bar kit and you are set.

i have no idea... sounds like it'll look good...

so I can keep my stock dampers? or am I just not knowing what I'm talking about. That all sound hunky dory but, I don't want to damage my dampers. I know this much if you get new sus. you need new. dampers so do those come in the sus. kit and the sway bar sounds like a good idea as well.

What's with you and dampers? You will need to change them separately.

go to ford racing site, they have a springand damper kit for like under 400 and comes with all you need and a nice 1.5 inch drop, im ordering mine tommorow!!

do they have one for an 07 cus thats what I drive!

Yes, 06 and 07 share suspension parts.
As for spacing out the wheels, I would suggest either wider wheels like the 18in RS wheels. Gettings a wider wheel, or something with a lower offset will push the wheel out further too. I cant really help you with the specifics tho.
If you do plan to, I would look into either a widebody kit, or having your fenders rolled to keep the outer skin even with the wider wheels.
