Talking Decisions, Decisions...

So after giving it a good amount of thought, I have decided to go with springs before I so anything else. Any opinions on that? I was going to work on the front end first, start with new headlights and a new grill and all but some people seem to think that I should start witht eh springs and I will be happier, and then work on the front end.. What do you all think?!?!?

That was my second mod to my first focus (1st was a UDP). Springs and dampers. Trust me, after installing a good set, you'll have constant big grins.

yah...my friend cowsgomoo a.k.a. Derek just got on his lowering springs...makes the car look badass cause of the stance...I'd go with a new udp after to get a lil more power comin from the Zetec and then go with the rest of the front end stuff :) Sorry everyone bashed u for the decal remark, but if you save the 30 bucks u'r spend on em to get, oh say springs, or a udp, or anything else for that matter it has at least an effect on performance and looks, even an exaust helps looks so u don't have that crappy .0000000000000009 inch pipe stickin out the back...but anyways good luck with the car and I'd go with the springs! Remember, get a good set or u'll be kickin urself...well actually the ride will do that for yah!

This is my car now with a 1.8 drop. Check out my gallery in my sig, I have a pic of my car without springs and my old rims, BIG difference. If you're going for looks, i'd get a 1.8-2.0 drop, then work on new headlights/grill. You have aftermarket rims already i hope?

Those rims are hot !
Are they 17's ?
What tire size are on the rims ?

I looked at your pics before the drop and it definitly looks better dropped...
