Im planning to buy coils and i want to go low. i already have my front fenders rolled and i am running 205/40 tires on some 17 x 7 rims...whats the best camber kit for the front? The FSwerks plates? and for the rear since i wanna go super low i should go with the camber arms right? any help would be appreciated.

So what do you want to do? Camber wear & you want coilovers to go lower? And whats the offset of your wheel's? What is your camber now= front & rear? The best way to adjust front camber is using CFM's tubular control arms w/ Suremotorsports rear arms. Seems like you have the wrong offset wheels running 205/40's & have to roll your fenders.

We need to know what your current specs are before we can determine whether its strictly a camber problem or not. The front end of a Focus tolerates more camber than the rear does. Most front tire wear problems are associated with "toe" issues. In other words, you can run a fair amount of camber up front without excessive tire wear, if the toe is set correctly. On an 03 you want your camber to be anywhere within the spec range (and that's pretty broad). On a car with rubber bushings you want a smidgen of toe-out (.01 to.02 inches...but no more!). If you have poly bushings up front, set it at zero toe.
