ClutchMaster0X9 Hi Im new to the forum, I was on the phone talking to Ksport salesman, Eric. He stated that the 2000-2005 and 2006-2007 Focus coils were re manufactured since last year. He went on to say that there systems will last years but that would only be possible with routine cleaning and maintenance rather than just throwing them on and putting them through hell like the majority of coilover buyers do. I say still by Ksport. Im actually stuck between Ksport and ST suspension. I was gonna go eibach sportlines and konis but i wanted that adjustability.

$760 here, even better. I bought my ksports from them, shipping was slow but also was free. My K-sports are doing fine, no issues however, ST's are less expensive now.

Get a different set of coilovers. A little over a year and all they do is make horrible spring binding noises among other issues.

How are your alignment specs? Pretty much any time I mess with my ride height my toe goes out and I am glad I have adjustable rear toe arms. Keeps my tires from getting worn too fast, rear camber doesn't seem to cause any issues.

jsquared, also check out ST coilovers, they are made by KW and have been one of the lowered priced options.
For rear camber, you can try camber bolts first for +/-1 degree ~$25) or adjustable camber arms ($120-170/pair, depending on how much camber you want/need.)
Adjustable rear toe arms will probably cost you around $150-170.

Adjustable front parts can be a little trickier to install, either adding camber plates or adjustable tubular control arms.


Link below is for CFM but plenty of other places sell them, will give a starting point.

The drive is smooth, almost no body roll, and they are just awesome! although I did have to install rear camber arms, toe links, and front tubular control arms to get it aligned properly. No need to look like a honda with horrible camber.
