The track record of a PO who didn't do his job on upkeep? I've taken car of all the maintenance issues on it already. It's running fantastic right now.

25mm but I'm keeping the Eibach bar.

How are you getting them for $70? I get $95 shipped from CFM. Might want to check on availability. Tire rack and Summit said they wouldn't ship until mid-late may. I could see how CFM would keep them in stock while Summit and tire rack wouldn't...

EDIT: grrr... I keep looking up HP Plus pads. I still get $90 shipped. Whats your secret?

Then based on your SVTs track record, you would leave it on jack stands? and my car would be flintstone power? Such a stupid argument.

Are you talking SVT? I drive a 2005 focus ST, takes the normal front pads.

28.6. wonder if that will be too much and make it oversteer happy. I do have wider rear tires on which would counteract that some.

I beat the piss out of my focus on a daily basis and took it to waterford hills more times than you've auto-x'd. Track days being obviously way harder on a car than an auto-x. The car was only on stands for longer than a day once when I did the clutch (and by me I mean tried to have some friends who were starting a shop do it and it took them forever)

Yes... I was looking at SVT. Makes sense.

I'd try it but I think I can make the 25mm bar work for me. I can still return the Steeda bar to Steeda. Eibach bar I bought from a private seller.
