** Moved Thread to the Suspension Area **

There are plenty of great suspension setups for the SVT. Which by the way are the same setups for any of the 01-04 Hatchback Focuses.

The Eibach Sport system is a nice setup within budget if you want to go an inch from the Stock SVT setup.

That's just a start suggestion from me. There are plenty more, and I bet many of the members here will offer their suggestions and experiences for u.

The stock SVT suspension is pretty damn good. The stock SVT shocks and struts can be replaced with Ford Racing parts for less than 175.00 (which is less than half what you'd pay for any other aftermarket performance pieces). The stock stuff is the best bang for the buck available.

I got two Bilstien struts for the front: http://www.truckspring.com/products/...22-051219.aspx

It took over three month before they were actually delivered from this place , but I love them so far.

yup, Steve at Toulsey ford can get you the SVT shocks/struts and new strut bearings (you'll have em apart, so its good to replace these) for ~$200 shipped to your door.

or you can go after market. I personally like my koni yellows on the skunk2 springs. the konis allow for adjustment of dampening (stiffer), which makes the stiffer springs like skunk2/h&r's ride very well.

^This is great advice IMO. Plus, Steve at Tousley is an outstanding person to deal with. Tell him that you are from Focus Fanatics(he just might cut you a small deal).

Did that leave you with your normal svt ride height or rise or lower it

Just a little bit of rise (maybe about a 1/4"). I think my old shocks had settle down about that much, however, because the car used to be in a nose dive, but with the Bilstiens in the front (old shocks still in the back), the car sits about flat.
