Exhaust. But I'll probably be hanged for saying that. Lotta lowering spring fans here. Not too crazy about the lowered look, even though it has its benefits. But yeah... exhaust.

Let me know if you do get the mbrp exhaust. I actually think it looks and sounds very attractive. I might get one myself, the next time I've got $300 to spare. Does anybody have pictures of it installed on a ZX3? I guess I could go through the gallery, but without a gallery search feature (with keyword tags) I think it would take me half a day to find a Focus with one on. Blah...

Get the Exhaust, it actually ads some performance to your car, lowering springs alone can't do too much w/o dampers.
But you should ask your self first...what do i want...speed or handling?

Lowering springs will destroy stock shocks and dampers...get the exhaust and wait for the drop until you can afford a full suspension kit.
