How do the rear go in, with having the separate spring? I haven't figured that out yet...

The shock goes in just the same as a stock one would. The spring comes with a perch with two lock collars. You can bolt the perch in place (where the stock spring sits, don't know what it's called). The collars adjust up and down which is how you change the height in the back.

The shock is adjustable as well, which has more to do with the travel of the shock than it does with height adjustment. Also crucial stuff, but I am not as good at explaining that one.

CFM's 4 point lower stress bar would make a great starting point.

Scraping the oil pan isn't really an issue on the Focus. Or at least not on my D20, I could be wrong on Zetecs or D23. You'll hit subframe before anything else.

I've got 205/40 tires on an 8" wheel. I guess my SVT Focus is "ruined"





Nice ride. What wheels are those and size?

That whole car looks good. I like the wheels. They kinda remind me of the earlier '90's Saleen Mustang wheels.

Maybe not the pan on a D-tech but you'd take out the filter. Or have a good change at it.
