MK2 Focus 06 - 1.8 TDCi - Suspension


This is my first post, I was looking at getting some new springs to lower the focus a bit.

The handeling is pretty awful round corners, it starts screeching at low speeds, not nice!

So I found THESE

They are 109 in including postage.

My focus has had a remap and is now working at around 135 - 140 bhp at the fly and 250 - 260 torque. The only other modification is a K&N panel filter when I did a full service.

I'm not looking to spend loads on these springs, so if there are cheaper alternatives I will most likely consider them!

I would also like advice on lowering amounts, I was thinking around 30-35mm. Would over 35mm be a little too much?
