Mine also makes some noise on the right side sometimes. Dunno what the hell it is. Everything is good, lined up, and tight, oh well

Some guys have used other springs to good luck, as long as you stay with about the same amount of "lowering" and stay within the working range of the shock/strut you should be good.

Anyone looking for the shocks/struts for the 06-11 make sure you are looking in the Ford Racing catalog on Tousley's website, it won't be listed under the standard catalog.

Just FYI

Are the springs still available? I'm thinking of just tossing the springs in and running them until I can afford the new struts - I'm sick of bottoming out...

Alright guys we gotta try this new fancy thing called READING, yeash

Lower springs are not going to help you from bottoming out, its probably going to make it worse actually. You would need a stiffer spring and stiffer shock, or maybe just need to slow down a little, cars can only handle so much.





FORD RACING SPRINGS FOR THE 06-11 FOCUS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED FOR PROBABLY ABOUT SIX MONTHS

I don't know about other years

Heads up everyone, these parts are discontinued.....

I bought one of two, so he's got one left. If you were thinking about it, better get on it...

Went back and found it for everyone.......Time stamp 04-18-2012, 11:54 AM

That was per Steve at Tousley when I ordered my goodies


That was the springs that were discontinued. If you want the Ford Racing springs check the classifieds. If you can't find em and need moar low get a good quality aftermarket spring and buy the shocks. It will work.
