sport cup kit
 
So I have a 07 zx3 that is currently lowered on ford racing suspension ~1-1.5 in drop. I have 17" wheels, an fswerks lower front brace, steeda rear sway bar, and the fswerks stealth exhaust.

Am I safe to buy the sport cup kit which will provide a drop of ~2.5 front and rear? I dont want to waste $700 bucks if its going to scrape the heck out of my exhaust and bars.

Hey Chris, I was originaly going w/ that kit= 2.6'' drop, but w/ cfm's 4-point lower stress bar & a stealth muffler, That was a little to low, so I went w/ Eibach's Sportline system instead. If I didn't have the 6'' diameter stealth muffler I would have done the sport cup kit. W/ the Fwerk's header you need that muffler

I figured it was too much of a drop. Are there any shocks you recommend with the Sportlines?

Get the "Sportline System"= comes w/ struts/shocks. Tirerack has them for $441.00 Oh I see you have a '07 car= You will need to get the Omni kit from Massive performance. Then get the sportline system for a '00-'05 foci. In '06 ford made the struts a little bigger diameter & Massive has a sleeve that takes up the clearence betwwen the slightley smaller earlier strut & the bigger spindle diameter. I ran into this yrs ago on one of my buddies cars.

Thanks For helping me out Felix! I wanted to have moar low. I am tired of the gap that my FRPP leaves and I wanted something decent. I didnt want coilovers and have been drooling over the sport cup kit for a while now. ANyways, Thank you for helping me find something comparable.

Hey Chris, no problem. One or someday we'll meet up. Did you get a chance to look at my album pix?

Are you running the Sportlines because I like how low you are?
