Question EIBACH springs

What do you think about droping front for 2" and back 2.2". Would that be enough or not.
PLEASE

That would be more than enough. If you are going to drop it that much, I hope you are aware that it's going to be a bumpy ride.

I have a 1.8in drop, since i run 40 series tires, i kinda wish i went with a 2.0 drop, definetly. BUT BUT BUT make sure you put in new shocks/struts and a camber kit AT THE TIME of spring install. You'll save on install costs majorly, and it must be done. I've already camber wore out my rear tires to all hell and my ride is majorly bumpy on stock dampers.

Yes with that much of a drop you will need a camber kit

What do you mean by 'enough'? Enough for what?

18 is a very big wheel for the focus, 215/35/18 tires are really really thing, they're begging for you to hit a pothole. i wouldn't go more than 2.0 on the focus though, 1.5-2.0 is perfect depending on your tire size.

I went 1.5" with Steeda and KW dampners. It leveled the car out very nicely, got rid of the "high" ass end. I went to 205/50/16 tires ( plenty big enough for me) and I believe it looks good and gives a nice but firm ride.
