Wisco, and anybody else interested in an SVT suspension upgrade. I have a full SVT suspension setup I'm trying to sell, and it's a bargain with perks. The springs and shock absorbers have about 14K miles on them, basically pristine shape. I think they're compatible with all cars up to 04, not sure about the wagon. I would sell the complete setup for 100$ if buyer picks up, and extra for shipping.

But here's the real deal: For $150, if you bring your car to me, I can take it to my auto tech school , do the swap, and then do an alignment to make sure the alignment angles are within spec and driving straight, which is truly necessary after any suspension changes. I just spent the last 8 weeks tearing down front and rear suspensions and am very familiar with how to get an accurate alignment, especially with a Focus. And here's the kicker: I'll give you a fantastically sexy 95 Mercury Grand Marquis beater loaner while the work is done. So you basically get free labor and a barely used suspension setup AND a loaner car while the work is done. I know you wont steal the loner car, it's a total POS but it drives.

Depending on how far you live from 54655 this could be a really good deal, so give it some thought. Also don't hesitate to PM if you just want to pay $100 for pick up or extra for shipping charges. The shock absorbers and springs are barely broken in.

I love you.

Sweet, maybe I can make a trip down there or something. I need a new soft-top after cracking my rear plastic window. I'm sure I could find some other misc parts that I need as well.

I love you.
I would definitely be interested.

But as far as I know, I have no need for springs. And I like buying parts that wear [i.e. suspension components, brakes, etc] brand new, just so's I know 100% how they've been treated and how many miles, etc. No offense. Just my OCD talking.

But I def appreciate the offer.

And I luz low, and I'm fairly sure my Pro kit springs are lower than the SVT's are.

Wow, I wrote "I love you" at the end of that sales pitch, must have sounded funny to me at the time. I probably wouldn't be able to do that anyway, I'd effectively be selling the schools goods and services.
