Smile Hi, im new to this site

Whats up everybody, Im new to this site and I just bought a black ZX3 5spd about a month ago. I love it, the only gripe I have is it came with coilovers when I bought and the car is very bouncy. Do I need different shocks or struts or should i just buy lowering springs? Any suggestions would help. thanks.

Sounds like what happened is when the person installed the coilovers they didnt include the shocks/struts. Pick yourself up a pair of Koni's are something and it should fix that problem.

I currently have the FK Automotive spring/shock/strut kit and although I love it, I'm already considering going to the KY Coilover set. H&R also makes a great set. Just dont go with Drop Zone or Ground Control. I hear they arent very quality.

Welcome ! I'll think you'll really enjoy the focus especially once you get the suspension taken care of. All the questions you ever have, just ask, you will most definitely get an answer
