Take a pic of your front strut and we can tell you which suspension will fit your car.
Yes he will have to order the correct kit or adapter sleeves.
The dampner kit is the same price for the 00-05 vs 06-07.

He asked if the ZX4 was different from the other models, suspension wise, it is not.

It's a great performance kit and incredible value at $300.
It doesn't lower the car much, only 1/2".
If lower is necessary for you, the ford racing springs can still be found, 1.5" drop.

most auto stores will loan/rent out a spring compressor too. so if you are up to the task, it is something you can do in an afternoon (a second set of hands would help.)

ps, for future reference, try to post suspension questions here in the Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension. You will get better answers there vs here in the motor section.

Suspension help

I have a 2005 zx4 sedan. I'm wanting to replace the stock suspension with something better and maybe even lower it an inch. What should I go with?
Budget 250-500
