lowering springs question

im looking at getting some lowering springs and using my stock shocks. Have you guys heard of megan racing springs any good? prob not because they are the cheapiest around. i was thinking about getting the sportlines are those any good and do i need anything other then the springs besides getting an alignment after. thanks for the any info you guys can give me.

i know of one focus that has megan springs on here. they're working out pretty well for him. his username is ranger_mclaren. and as for sportlines, people on here say it'll blow out your struts and shocks so you'll need new, possibly shorter ones. some people say they are too soft. some people say they bounce too much. this is as much info as i can give you as i don't have any experience with them. you can also look into the h&r sport springs. they never settle so once you put them on your car is automatically lowered without the wait although it did lower a couple of mm within a day. fantastic springs if you ask me.



search the forum, look in the suspension section it has alot of input on all sorts of suspension parts. and yes you will need an alignment lol

as of now? no. you can buy them on tirerack. they say shipping takes 2-3 days but i ended up getting my springs the next day after i bought them (that was before 12 pm mind you). but people usually end up buying the frpp kit which is another option. for another 100 dollars more you can get springs shocks and struts all in one package.
