Not entirely true. If you want to get down to -1.5 degrees or less with a 1.5" drop in the rear, odds are good that you'll need some sort of camber adjusting devise.

if you go with the sportlines i think you have to ride a 205/45/17 if you go with a 215 you'll probably rub over bumps and sharp turns if not rolled.

Mike told me that I wouldnt need one as long as I stayed around the 1.5" lowering mark

i heard the drop actually drops it 1.4 give or take.
just check out some pics of the drop on here :)
Offset of your wheel has a lot to do with it too. If running a 45mm offset like the SVT wheels, you'll be fine.

That depends. Most foci come from the factory with more than -1.5 degrees. Lowering it increases the amount of negative camber and it varies from car to car. While this may be within Ford specs, more than -1.5 degrees is known to promote inside edge tire wear.

Anyways, thanks for the phone number, I just ordered the FRPP suspension kit! I cant wait to replace this blown Eibach prokit.
What was the price to get this shipped?

Also, not sure if you are planning to install yourself but if not, have you got any price quotes to get this installed?

Or if anyone has an idea of the price range to get this installed?
