Zillon, I know you don't have your Focus anymore but do you happen to have pics with your 18" rims at stock ride height? or did you swap everything at the same time? I'm trying to see visually how much a difference the pro-kit does. I think its a .5" drop f/r right? but pics do better justice. :-)

Thanks if you do, if not its ok. All the cars here so far are amazing.

Took Chaos's advice and went with the VMaxx coilovers, no complaints besides the clunking that I've had in the rear suspension since I installed them. I'll take the rear apart this weekend and and figure out the problem. Sitting on 18x8.5'' Voxx wheels...





Probably going to get a set of Titanium or ST headlights next...

.8" drop.

EDIT: Duane (dyn085) has a side by side in his build thread.

I don't, actually.

If you look back through this thread and take a peek at HuskyFocusSPs photos, though, that's a good representation of what stock suspension with the 18s would look like.

Dyn085 has some photos in his build thread, too, as jdub already mentioned.

Suspension before wheels, always.

You can still see all the way around the tire. The angle of the picture makes it appear tucked.

Is this tucked?
