New Focus Owner - 2004 Orange SVT ZX5 + My Friends White ZX3

After looking for over 6 months I just picked up a 2004 Competition Orange SVT ZX5. I’m extremely happy with the car so far. I love the color and all the options that the EAP brings along. The car has KYB AGX struts and shocks, eibach springs, AEM cold air, & a Screamin Demon Coil and Spark Plug Wires. I already ordered a set of stock SVT spring and strut kit to give the car back it’s originally ride quality. The eibach makes the car ride a bit harder that I care for. Also, I have included some photos of my friends 2001 ZX3 that he just finished building…

nice new svt, congrats.

whats the story on that zx3, looks to be a bit of a beast with those drag slicks on it.

Have you tried to adjust the struts/shocks before deciding to put the stock stuff back in??? You're going to want that extra adjustability when say...you get into autocross or road racing. Hell having adjustability to take an off ramp at 85mph is always a blast.

PM if you ever get those things off and I'll buy them off you.

Before you ditch that suspension setup, possibly look into getting different springs with a softer spring rate. Awesome car man. My favorite color. Get yourself a eurogrill car will be set!
