Spring Install

Anyone want to help me install my RS springs on my SVT this weekend?

I've never worked on my focus, and certainly have never seen a set-up like the rear springs have.

I live in Fort Collins, let me know if you're willing to help.

I would love to help but work until 6:30pm on Saturday and 4:30pm on Sunday. If you have any questions just give me a call. The rear are very easy to get in and out. I think it is only two bolts and swaybar end links. Make sure to spray JB blaster on the bolts to help loosen them up. Fronts are also very easy, four bolts per side. The hardest part is getting the strut out of the knuckle.

It's still "unconfirmed" that the RS springs will fit a 02 SVT, but I have high hopes, if they fit and function as they should, I'd be glad to sell the SVT springs.

Just wondering if you have tried doing the install of them yet? If not I might be able to swing by tomorrow after 4:30.

I haven't, but with a closer inspection, I need new rear struts, so I'm going to put the lowering project on hold until I get those replaced.

I'd be way down to help but I wouldn't be able to do much other than learn :)

Just let us know when you are ready to put in the springs. I know I still need to find time to do mine. Let me know how you like the RS springs, since they're the ones I'll be going with also.
