Post Latest Deal! Drop/Sway....Suspension This Time!!! More Clearance!

Okay, so I have been telling you guys I had another deal in the works with Mike at Hilbish, and here we are. There is still a possible new 65mm throttle body for 65 bucks in the works, but it may not happen. For now, though, here are two deals!

1. Anyways, Mike's shop can now get us the Ford Racing suspension kit including the new struts and springs. These are complete, meaning that they come with everything new, strut mounts, strut bearings, spring perches, boots bumpstops, and hardware. They lower more than the SVT kit does...down 1.5 inches instead of just .5!

The kit usually goes for about $575 plus, but, as usual, Mike can get them for us all cheaper, for every year, including 08s, for only $360! Can you beat that anywhere? FRPP OEM equipment, 1.5-inch drop, and only $360? Mike will assemble them for us before shipping. He will seat the springs to the struts for us, for free! This goes along with the Borla stuff we talked about in the past, and the current dogbone mounts.

So, the whole thing will arrive put together. You take out the old assembly, bolt in the new, align, and you are on your way. This saves you the step of compressing the springs to the struts, which is the worst part of doing them. What do you guys think? I am sure that you know the focus is an auto-x car at heart, so I would guess you are as excited about this option as I am!


2. Now, here is the second part! This can be done separately, if you are not wanting to do your complete suspension. We all know how much the sway bars help the Focus. Lots of us upgrade them, or just want to get one in the first place, front and/or rear! Well, here's the sweet solution. Mike has on clearance now (remember the Borla systems he had?)FRPP's Eibach way bar kits! They used to sell for as much as $400, but we can get them now for just $269!!!

Keep in mind, these are on clearance....meaning once they are gone, that's it. All done. They have, I think, 10 left. If you are not familiar, they come with a 22mm front bar, and 25mm rear, with mounts and poly bushings. If you want the urethane endlinks too, mike can get those to us for 11.23.

So, all in all, we are talking about doing the entire suspension for under 650. And, you don't even have to do that, obviously. You may just want to drop it 1.5 with high-quality parts, for just 360! Either option will be huge for our cars, these are just sweet deals you get to be a part of just b/c your are a member of this site! I have been going back and forth with Mike on this for a while, hoping it would happen, and take off...especially with the clearance stuff! You also get to deal with Mike directly, so you get any extra stuff he wants to do for you individually, his assembling bonuses, and his knowledge/help. Most of you all already know, but his help can be invaluable. Just let him know I told you about it you call to order! His number is 800-849-0233. Ask for Mike in parts.

Until the next deal/steal...

Youre right, it IS awesome. It's something we were sitting on for a while now. finally went thru, and here it is. 1.5 inches, and the hard stuff is done for you! all you do is unbolt the old, and bolt in the new. mike will walk you thru it all, and you cannot beat the price as well...i mean most coiovers are at LEAST 900 bucks, and they dont come together!

dont forget the sway kit too! clearance! they had 19 last week, and mike sold 8 already!

Yeah thats what I was thinking.... And I hope Ford uses different bushings for their front swaybar cause the Eibach ones are too big for the bar.

I have this kit (minus the swaybars) on my car right now. I got mine for around this price but it didn't come with any of the extras and i had to assemble it myself. therefore this is a GREAT deal.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a RACE suspension and rides very stiff, it is nothing like a "soft" Eibach kit.

It is also not super low, but remember that "dumped" doesn't always mean "best handling." This is setup to position the geometry perfectly and is valved specifically for the weight balance of the ZX3, however it works great on all the other models as well!

I LOVE mine, and you guys will too
