Yeah, I forgot to mention the debadgery (by me.) It was a free modification because we already had the goo-gone. I'm glad this forum is not blocked at my school, because I can look up whatever I want to do to my Focus on here.

what kind of wheels you thinking about? even svt 5 spokes are a nice upgrade from the stock 16's. and they're easy to find

I do like the look of the SVTs wheels. What's a decent price for a set of four?

SVT suspension kit has been ordered from Theaadman23 on the FF marketplace. I am really looking forward to the ride improvement with good struts and the SVT upgrade.

I am definitely excited to get the new struts installed, I have some insane noise in the front end. I get this crazy grinding noise while going over bumps, turning, and braking. Also, one of my AC/heat blower fans has developed a squeak. I find myself mostly just turning it off

I also removed the window tint on both the rear windshield and the drivers door because it was warped and I could not see out as well as I liked. I may leave the rear windows until I am able to get all new tint.

yeah the svt suspension could make the ride a little smoother. you will notice slightly better handling as well.
my heater squeaks too, it might be the fan or something.
you can find svt 5 spokes anywhere from 200-350 a set. i'd highly suggest craigslist, that's where i find some sweet deals.

The SVT kit got in today. Struts and coils, no sway bar. Hopefully I'll be able to get those on soon, my ride is not so quiet as of right now ;-)

seventystang, good luck on your ride, nice start. I have the same ZX3 minus the 5 speed unfortunately. I did the SVT suspension, great improvement in handling and added 5 spokes, 50 % tint, debadged and TFB graphics. I am going to drive it as is, stock engine as it is primary driver. Have fun with your ride.

Sweet ride. I want a ZX3 so bad. They look so good. As for that clunking in the front, is it on the right, and did you figure it out yet?
