The issue is you have to use midget* 1-7/8" ID springs to fit in the shock tower. I don't believe that a 2" ID spring will fit.

* - as in midget type racecar, not small or short person

FC made 1-7/8" versions for stock sized shocks, and made 2"I.D. versions to fit over koni yellows and other slightly larger-bodies shocks. F2 later replicated the 2" ones and sold them as well

I've been running the Steeda bar for a few yrs now w/ no issues & before that Eibach's rear bar. No cracks or anything.

I would also be down for these! I need new trailing arms like a MOFO! Mine are starting to Rost and the last time I did an alignment I had some issues because of the crappy design and all the rust. And being that I'm starting to really get into making it track Ready. would prefer all massive stiff stuff. Will be ordering camber and toe arms along with end link arms for the fronts next year! A lower control arm setup for the fronts would be awesome as well!

Well I didn't know that lol. But it would still be nice to have a whole set of massive stiff instead of having to piecemeal it all together from so many other companies.

Welcome to modding. Name one brand that has all the suspension parts for a very popular fox body Mustang including a tubular engine cradle? I've used 5 different aftermarket brands for suspension parts on those. Were here to help you, just let us know what you want to do or which way you want to go. For rear arms on a foci you can use Dom's arms. I asked & made a thread in Massive's section to see if he was going to produce arms for the rear, seems like some guys are interested. Maybe you can pm him 'bout them also.

Hmm, maybe I should get into making replicas of the Focus-Central rear tubular arms I have (I have the sway-bar version)....I looked up what I'd need to make them and it would be about $300 in parts/materials to make a set of camber arms and toe arms for one car.
