Steeda Lowering Springs

Just noticed these on their site. Pretty sure they just put them up.

http://www.steedafocus.com/parts/ste...g-springs.html

Was hoping to check their site and find that the FSB was finally available, which would have made me squeal like a girl (DON'T JUDGE ME!), but my hopes were dashed.

Anyone got plans to try them out? For 50 bucks more than the Pro-Kit, I would hope they offer some sort of advantage. They do offer a slightly lower drop in the front and apparently reduce understeer.

I was planning on the Pro-kit or some MS3 springs but if enough people recommend these or if no one has tried them by the time I decide to add a drop, I might give them a try and possibly be the guinea pig.

Isn't there enough rake in the sedan to start with? It must be leveling with the body panels. I'm curtis to see what it looks like installed...

I would totally buy these (or any other brand, really) if I didn't get the Ti Focus... but having paid more for the car, I really can't justify putting any more money into her until she's paid off.

I wish I had bought an SE

I feel your pain, yet lack your discipline...

Here's a 2012 Focus Sport that we just completed. It has our springs installed.

I hope they are linear rate like the old ones as well. Not a fan of progressive rate springs.
Yeah, I've heard mostly good things about their springs so if they do what they say then I'd have no problem paying the extra cash over other springs.

SteedaBrandon coming in with win! Thanks!

I like the drop with the wheels. Looks like it could have come from the factory like that, but has a good drop. Also makes me really want some 18's...

Now we just need to see it with stock wheels too.

Don't worry about it, I modified my truck the day I brought it home (the wife thought I was nuts) and it was 36K sticker, but i only paid 29.5K for it. I also had a 89 5.0L mustang I bought new that I ripped the engine apart that night to put in a cam and aluminum heads.

Don't think of it as a new car that you paid X amount for, think of it as a blank canvas just waiting for you to apply your brush strokes to make it your own.

lol, true - but I do have bills... >.<

EDIT: I'm also afraid my car will scrape the ground on driveways and stuff. Also, the streets around here are horrid - not to mention the harsh 18"s that are already on my car. I really just want it for the looks... and marginal increase in gas mileage (I know, I have a problem...)
