FRPP Lowering Kit

Can I just get a quick confirmation that the FRPP kit does fit the 08 Focus?

M-18000-ZX3B http://www.tousleyfordparts.com/part...catalogid=5684

And

M-5560-ZX3B http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts...tKeyField=9600

Just looking for confirmation that they should bolt right on and that I won't need any camber adjustment plates. After talking with a few guys at Carlisle, this seems like the best course to go to lower the car.

yup you are correct:) i have had mine on for about 8 months now. the ride is awesome! they bolted right on and took about a little more than an hour to put on using basic tools. you will need to get an alignment though, just fyi. it worked out for me since i had to get new tires. tousley is the way to go! i ordered mine from them on a monday after work and i had them friday morning (and i didn't upgrade shipping!) if you want some pictures of the finished result let me know, but you will find lots of pics on here of that setup:)

The more pictures the better! I checked the Tousley website but they don't have the right springs listed! I was bummed about that cause they have the kit on sale. Roughly $100 off, combined, for both parts!

Tousley has the M-5560-ZXM1, but not ZX3B's that I'm looking for. Is there any real difference between the two? The ride height is the same but I can't find any other information.

Love that last picture with the darkened side marker. And ironically, enough, my Focus is also parked next to a Ranger.

And you used the ZX3B springs? Or the ZXM1 springs?

i'll see if i can locate the thread explaining the difference. but until then the zx3b are the ones i bought and installed:) i am going to put some nightshade on the marker (its vinyl tint currently) since the uv film is peeling and needs to be re-done.
