f2 rear coilover kit?

Has anybody had any experiance with this kit? http://www.f2usa.com/index.php?main_...555703ef47f324
If so what rate springs did you get with it? and what are you running on the front? if this is a decent kit I would be interested in buying it, as of right now I have stock zx3 suspension so I would undoubtably need new front suspension too what would you reccomend?
Thanks For all the help guys! (and girls)

Well first, you can buy four springs for the price of two. The only benefit (and its not much of one) is that the ones you have shown come with adjustable collars. The springs rates they start at 240 lbs/in is fairly high for a rear focus spring so be prepared for a very firm ride. Please don't put these on until you figure out what you're going to use for shocks. With that kind of spring rate at a minimum you need KYB AGx's and Koni's would be even better. I strongly recommend a spring/shock kit if you do not have a significant amount of suspension experience. Matching random parts can result in a poor handling and riding car and a big chunk of cash down the drain. What are you trying to accomplish? Maybe we can give you better direction or recommendations if we knew your goals.

There is no good reason to buy it.

basically what im trying to accomplish is the best handling focus i can get for between 300-400 bucks I dont have an svt so even the factory svt suspension would be an improvement im just trying to find out whether or not that would be the best bang for my buck?

If you are looking in that price range, the SVT kit would be a very good option.

For $300-400 get the svt springs/struts/shocks and a progress rear bar.

If you are willing to spend a little bit more, there is the Eibach Pro kit which is also available.

Does the svt kit include a rear sway bar or just an upgraded front? That was what I was looking at originally just because of the price and performance for the price. I just wondered about the sway bar because as of right now I dont think mine has a swaybar in the back????

The SVT kit includes a larger rear bar. A larger front bar really isn't necessary. The SVT kit is an excellent option within the price range you've mentioned.

I'm pretty sure it does. I know the newer 'S' models do not have a rear sway bar but I was under the impression all Zetec ZX3s came with them.
