Whats your budget? As far as lowering how far do you want to go? Exhaust= Are you going to add a header?

I lowered my '10 SE 1.5" drop with:

SVT shocks/struts damper kit
M-18000-ZX3B -Ordered from Tousley Ford

SVT springs:
FORD RACING 2006-2007 FOCUS PERFORMANCE SPRING KIT M-5560-ZX3B

*I got the springs off Ebay. They are no longer produced.

* If you can't find them then you can look for these springs instead:
M-5560-ZXM1* these may ride a bit stiffer than the SVT springs.

I did none of the labor. A shop did. I like the result: better look, better handling.

No idea on exhaust since all I have is springs/struts and Steeda short throw shifter.

But FSWerks Stealth seems to be popular as far as exhausts go.

If you want to lower it= Find a desent kit 1st, w/ what cash you have. For exhaust, If your going to add a muffler= Why not a 2.5'' mandrel bent system, unless your looking for noise= different tone & no performance.
