FRPP Suspension on a 2008?
 
Hello, all!

I'm looking into dropping my Focus, and have seen FRPP mentioned being used with 2nd gen. Foci.
My questions are these: Are we talking about the "2000-2005" FRPP suspension kits? If so, how easily will 1st gen. FRPP suspension fit onto a 2nd gen.?

Its the 06-07 FRPP Kit and it directly fits(= I installed mine a couple of weeks ago. From tousley ford its only a little over $300 shipped for the full kit(4springs, 2 shocks, 2 struts)
be sure you get the 06-07 kit. And the box that it comes in actually says "06+" because they 06-11 focus suspension is the same aside from the diameter of the struts which was increased my 5mm lol

Thanks for the info! I hadn't yet come across the o6-07 kits, which had confused me a bit. I will definitely be going FRPP soon =D

It definitely made my car. Both with looks and the handling is superb!

06+ is all the same. Been riding on my FRPP setup for about 36k so far so good!

Have you guys noticed any improvement in mpg after lowering? Any issues with alignment or tire wear? Also wondering if it lowers the car 1.5 as advertised, or more. I ordered my kit yesterday from Tousley Ford.

I guess I would have to measure the car and let you know. Gas savings, no!!! Way more fun to drive and as such use more gas.

Looking at pics on here it seems they drop more than 1.5 inches which looks great, but I put about 30k miles a year on a car in all types of driving conditions (well...no snow). Most of that is at hwy speed so would think maybe mpg would pick up a bit being lower to the ground.

maybe, I drive 35-36K a year and I guess when I was on my stock 15" I might have gotten about 1-2 mpgs better. since going to 17s Im getting right at 33 mpg and thats on three tanks of gas a week, so I would say its a solid number.

i saw a slight increase my last tank of gas from being lowered. you will have to get an alignment after the install. thats just part of it bud
