cobie56 Antohre qeustion for the ff gurus. When reducing aspect ratio, in my case from 215/50/17 to 225/45/17 should recommended tire pressure be increased somewhat to help make up for less "cushioning" of the sidewall? Opinions? Thnx

cobie56 Anyone hear of or have experience with conti Pure Contact tires? I guess they are pretty new...i have not heard of them but will do some searching. I went to my local tire guy for conti DWSs and he instead recommended the pure contacts. Thnx

I'm a newbie when it comes to suspensions...I've always replaced stock with stock on all my cars. When I first registered here, it was a bit overwhelming stepping out of my "comfort zone" and reading about all the available options (maybe not so much for an MK3, but other Foci).

I'm probably leaning toward Ford Racing just because I'm so new to everything. It's fun to branch out!

I'm leaning in that direction, as well.

Even though it says that it does, that kit doesn't come with shocks and struts.

Tire Rack messed up.
