chriskobi Does anyone know the stock rear spring rate of 2000 zx3?

I want to keep my ride height but I want a stiffer spring (for rally) , Also does anyone know a good place to order the springs.

The car is in the process of getting coilovers for the rears but I do not have time before this next rally to do all the cutting and welding it requires. So I will just get a stiffer spring for now,

Blue5ive Iirc there have been several for the mk3. Ksport, vmaxx and a 1 or 2 others I think. Check the group buy section.

superxsoaker Is there a coilover lowering kit available for the 2013 Focus SE yet?

Blue5ive Make sure to check your tires for wear. I dropped 1.5" on my mk1 and am getting crazy tire wear in the rear when I had none before. 2 other mk1 guys dropped and one had just minor wear and the other guy had none noticeable. Camber bolts should do you if needed.

No, if anything a set of cheap $10 camber bolts will take care of that. I drove for a couple years at 1.5" lower, still aligned camber fine and normal tire wear
