New dude...intro and question

Aloha gang,
My name is Todd.Born and raised in L.A.,first 4 cyclinder car iv'e owned.My last 2 cars were low 13 second cars or faster.Could use some advise on power adders for this car.I was married and traded in my c5 after 5 years,got an 05 Mustang GT because of child #2 on the way,well,now were getting divorced so i need to free up some of the money,traded the GT in for a 07 pitch black focus 5 speed..Pics of my rides are below.
I slam all my rides,and this focus needs about a 2 inch drop.Eibach sportlines is what i used on my 05 stang.Anyways,look forward to learning about this car and what mods etc to do to itI'm sure this is an old question,but what does an 07 5 speed run with the 2.0 dura-tec motor.I think i remember the window sticker saying the car has 4:10 gears already....See ya all around...

Well, the suspension options on a 2007 are limited. But Eibach makes 2.0" drop springs, and Tokico makes a set of dampers.

Unless someone modified the car, you have a 3.82:1 final drive, not a 4.10.

Stock, the 2.0l with a 5-speed does low-16s to high-15s.

Thanks for the input bro...3:82:1 it must be.I got it with 8 miles on it.On my 05 GT,i just used the sportlines and camber bolts,are the dampers a must?
Well,15's is livable.Maybe i could knock down a high 15,i got the stripped version,no power window motors or locks,and if a new track opens over here,i'll take out the spare tire,jack etc...that shiet was 70lbs in the stang..
Thanks for the reply bro...good info.I'll be seaching thru the lowering threads tonight.

That vette is soooo awsome. It looks really good blacked out like that. Definately get dampers to go with lowering springs. Your stock dampers won't hold up very long with the lowering springs, and its much easier to put it on all at once instead of having to take your suspension apart twice. Good luck with your focus.
