Damn you! Nice choice on your wheels. The SVT grilles would really look good - you do have to cut the bottom one to fit & you also need OEM foglights as well. Looking good!

Yeah, I want to drop it, but I also want to sell it by the end of the summer (not sure if that will happen) so if it was cheap enough and I did not need to put struts in, I would for sure drop it. All I need to know is if I can use my current struts and just buy springs.

What are you saying damn me about? The fact that I get cheap prices, or picking up some sweet SVT rims? And thanks, I love the rims, even though they are not aftermarket, they make the car stand out so much more. I would love to put SVT grills in, but, if I am selling the car, I dont want to put to much into it and I also dont want to cut anything because then when I do sell, people will question it . I have the Ford dealership parts guy keeping an eye out for an SVTF for me, until then though, this is my car. I really want yellow fog lights though, and then use them and my marker lights as the daytime running lights, as I live in Canada and the headlights I have right now are the same voltage as the daytime running lights.

I also need to find out if I need to change the struts out or not if I want to lower the car by 1.2-1.5 inches. I know you said you dont know about wagons, but I thought you might have stumbled upon something.

my current favorite pic right now.
Holy crap!!!! That is honestly the nicest sedan I have seen so far! It is sooooo clean but well done. As I said to the other two, do you know what I need to do as far as lowering my car, I want to buy just springs for a 1.2-1.5 inch drop, but I dont know if I need struts and an alignment as well. If that is the case, I will not being doing it as I just bought new front struts in February so it would seem like a waste of money if I bought new ones again... Would you know anything about this? Or point me in the right direction? I am very jealous of your grills btw!

There are some people on here who just have lowering springs, from what I've heard the ride quality is not compromised. Yeah I was talking about your wheels when I said damn you, I have been looking for some and every time I find some in my price range they sell. The only part you need to cut to make the SVT grilles fit is the lower SVT grille itself. If you're planning on selling it, I wouldn't put anymore money into it anyway. If you like ranger_mclaren's look - go for it and just keep your OEM lower grille. That way when you sell it, you can just put the OEM back on and nothing will be cut.

Another update! First, I took the SVT wheels off and put my winters on, as well as put my ski rack on the roof. I got stock focus rims with snow tires at 85% already mounted for $300. I then plasti dipped them black to make my car look less stock. I go to Whistler quite a bit so I kind of need them.



I also plasti dipped a bunch of other stuff, I did the door handles, the door pillars, marker lights in the bumper, grille lights, and rear bumper protector. And then the thing everyone wishes will not happen to their car, it was hit and the person ran, they did $2000 damage and my deductable is $750. So I sit now, with my car looking like this.

ah you should be able to get that fixed with a trip the junk yard. I have a a spare set of stock amber side markers. Looks like the head light was not damaged that would probably be the hardest to source.
