Any good priced place to drop my focus?

Hey all,
I would like to drop my focus about 2" lower.
Any good priced places that you guys can recomend around or in sacramento that can hook me up? how much can I expect to pay to have some shop lower my car or install a drop kit?
thanks much,
-Masterjedifocus

do not have a shop do it. get together with some people around you and install it yourself. save yourself alot of money. and get the h&r coilovers. they are very nice.

Get your kit then bring it to my house and I'll show you how to do it. Just buy pizza for lunch. I have all the tools and have done this before.

Pb blaster will solve that, but like they said above we don't really get rust in our suspension. That more east coast and whever they salt roads.
