Doesn't everyone? It sounded like you were reluctant to do anything because of the price you paid for the car, not because of low funds. Don't worry, I'm in the same boat as you. If funds were better, I'd have my system finished in my fusion and it would be rollin on 2013 escape 19's with 245/35/19 BFG's



They have the same bolt circle size (5 x 114.3mm or 5 x 4.5") and the same hub center bore size 67.1mm as the fusion.

If these are anything like their Steeda springs for the MKI Focus, then as much as I like my MS3 springs, I will be getting these when I get some other mods done. I tried a lot of different springs on the 2001 ZX3 I had, and the Steeda springs were by far the best. Perfect IMHO.

I hope they are linear rate like the old ones as well. Not a fan of progressive rate springs.

This is the best part of their description:

•Reduces understeer unlike other brands available
I like the amount of lowering too.

I wish they would share rate specs...

Do you love your car? If yes, like me, you paid for the car you wanted. Not what you settled for. Because you got the car you wanted, you're not going to regret it a year down the road.

Haha, I'm the epitome of what you just said. I drove to a dealer like 40 minutes from my parent's house (2 hours from Milwaukee) just to get a Kona Blue 5-Door with the Ti Handling Package and a sunroof. ^_^

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

Those are nowhere near low enough to scrape driveways...come back when you can do this! Then you'll worry!

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.
