Meh... No

Tucked in my book is if the lip of the tire is even slightly higher than even with the wheelwell

So you might be right, the angle of the pic made it look tucked, but I'll stick to my guns haha

gotta say the white focus on 1552's and the bagged st are the only ones that are impressing me with their height. so far the coilover set ups dont look like they give a whole lot of drop, unfortunately.

if i could get my titanium to sit somewhere around how my gti was. ill be happy.

I'll have my Focus on this thread soon. Can you guys give your 2 cents on the need for an alignment after lowering?

Mine's above a couple posts (H&R Sport lowering springs), but getting it realigned isn't really necessary. I get my tires rotated/alignment checked with every oil change and nothing's off. If you do notice a pull or some noise after you drop it, hold off for a bit and let the springs settle. Remember that they're going to be stiff at first and need to be broken in. If it's still off after you go a couple thousand miles, take it in. By the way, H&R Sport springs ride really smooth. Fronts might be slightly higher than the backs because of the way the body is cut but it's hardly noticeable. They settle nicely and if it bothers you that much, cut half a coil...a lot cheaper than going full out on coil overs, but that's probably my next project anyway besides the FS Werks exhaust

My car was the test vehicle and I only picked it up last Friday so they aren't on the website yet. When they are up, they'll be here:

http://www.roadmagnet.com/products-by-make/ford

I was told that they will be $245. You might be able to call Road Magnet and order a pair before they're up on the website.
