Info on Lowering a ZX5

The 2007 Focus i bought it is lowered and i was wondering what the most common way they use to lower these cars. so i can un-lower it.

I'm an old guy (52) and do not need a lower car.

Thanks for your help.

Chuck

I would think they swapped out the stock springs and put in stiffer, shorter aftermarket springs. You just need to pick up some stockies and swap 'em back in... Takes about 2 hours.
