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?
shipped to my door here in IL 354.00 . OHH The FRPP kit is a amazing ride and it gives your car such a great look. If you get the kit from billy and dale , because the fronts already put together it cuts down on install time. Shouldnt take more the 2 hours at most for anyplace with a lift and make sure you buy some new rear controll arm bushing just incase yours seized on the bolts.

Where can I find the rear lower control arm bolts? I'm replacing the lca's with the custom ones that a member sells on here and I don't want to use the old bolts.

So, not meaning to thread jack, but it's applicable to your comment. Would the CFM Front Tubular Control Arms be effective for camber control for those wanting to drop more than 1.5"?

Since they are adjustable, yes this could be another way of playing with camber. Personally I like "slotted' camber/caster plates for ease of adjustment (at the race track etc.). But these are hard to find for the Focus.

Well, as has been often discussed. The lower you go the weirder the suspension geometry becomes. With the availability of upper/lower arms for the rear, and now the adjustable arms and upper plates for the front. I was just curious if now you could actually entertain somewhat radical drops and still maintain proper alignment for the street (meaning your not going to eat your tires).
