my god, i go away for a week while 'focus'ing on my web design, and you guys post 12 more pages of stuff! lol

Wish i could have been at the garage day, i plan on being at the next one so let me know when u guys feel like doing another suspension swap, i'm planning to eventually upgrade everything.

Right now I am looking at getting the Eibach Sport System Plus(2" F 2.2"R drop) and the massive adj toe & camber arms. now i am not ashamed to admit I am a noob, so i'd like to know first if anyone else here has these parts, and if the massive adj bars are even compatable with the Eibach system. As well as if there are any other peices i should get to do this, I want to replace anything and everything I can with upgraded parts all at once! Also I'd be buying a set of 17" SVT EAP's to go on at the same time, will those even fit with a 2.2" drop?

Anyway, this is my goal by the next time you guys do a garage day, and i'd love to show up with a trunk full of parts and get my hands dirty with ya'll!

Yes those wheels would fit. Might want a lower profile tire than stock, though.

And don't get anything Plus from Eibach. They're dampers are worthless and you don't need them. I would recommend SVT dampers or a Koni kit.

You may want to also consider a set-up other than Eibach. Their springs are trash and they have some of the worst spring rates. And this is coming from a guy who has the Eibach Pro-kit on his car. Lol.

I would look into an FRPP kit, or maybe some DGR coilovers. They're adjustable so you don't have to slam the car if you don't want to.

suicide, i highly suggest shying away from eibach, all of the wisconsin guys have had one issue or another with them if you want low but not adjustable pick up an h&r cup kit (almost 2.5" of drop) and those arms. basically the only thing that works from eibach is swaybars.

i knew wiscozx3 had an issue with them, didnt know everyone else did too. The reason i picked the eibach kit was cause it came with a ton of peices and i literally want to replace pretty much the entire suspension, from the arms and shocks to the bump stops and bolts.... everything! I'll look into h&r cup then...would the 17's with 40's fit under that? Would probably have to roll the fenders right? seen a lot of people talking about that.

i would like to tinker with stuff on my focus, but i really cant justify droppin money into an spi wagon which i dont plan on having in a year or two.

on a side note, did anyone see fast five yet? i went last night, and idk if anyone else on the site has posted about this (i didnt bother to look), but a lot of the brazilian cop cars were fcouses (foci?). they got F#@KED UP!!! those movie are always cheesy but soooo entertaining! movie got done around 11:30 last night and a guy in a cavalier pulled up next to me revin his engine tryin to get me to race. little did he know that i saw the cop sittin around the cornier and he got his ass pulled over HAHAHAHAHA stupid chevy!

Lol I'd say around 4" or so?

And as for air ride, BaggedSE? Is that his name? Haha. Whatever, regardless, air ride would be super epic.

Yeah, their products are garbage. Especially their dampers.

None of the WI guys have had a set last more than 20k miles.

Anyone running ford racing springs in our state? Or any suggestions for springs that won't rust through super fast?

I would prolly be as low as Gabe and mike if I wasn't riding on 225/45/17's. i think my fender height is 23 3/4 in.

FYI, Eibach makes horrible suspension kits but there Race Springs are the SHIT!!!! I plan on use in them when I get a lil more crazy will the suspension setup. Also there valve springs a pretty sweet too. Never had any trouble with them at RealTime.
