modding has started

so i got my springs, the short shifter came in today, and the strut tower bar will be in next week probably. modding has begun. the springs will have to be put off for a while or at least until i come up with about $490+. strust got backordered on me :( those will be here sometime next month. just an update on how the focus is coming along

Put off the springs for $490 for what? Labor? Eff that man just come to houston and we can manage an install GTG for you or somethin =P

We did my springs at a guy's house who used to own a focus.... but IMHO that guy doesnt exist any more. but after watching what was going on I feel pretty confident I could do it for you. Just need a spring compressor which you can rent from Oreillys or autozone for liek $10 or something like that

No need to drive all that way. I am always willing to do someones suspension free of charge. But I think what he meant about the $490 was for the struts.

why would i need the massive omni kit? the springs are for a 2008-2009 ford focus coupe/sedan.


no... its 490 to install and align. i already paid for struts they just got backordered :(

dont pay a dime to have springs installed.

and if you got struts and everything you should be able to just rent a spring compressor and you are set.
