rally wagon

Hey all,

just bought a wagon to match my lifestyle, going to sell my SVTF. I want my wagon to be rally style so I wanna give it a lift, or at least a stiffer spring, since ill be hauling tons of bikes and people in it.

What is the "size" of springs on a focus sedan/wagon? What is the rate?

I live by the eibach factory, so im thinking if i can get the size and length i can find a stiffer spring from a heavier car that will work.

heres what i have to work with:

Update: (to myself i guess)

rallyrs had some great suggestions:

- these guys make custom springs, so you can go stiffer for a lift:http://www.coilsprings.com/request_q...px?type=sports
or
-if you search spring distance kit ford focus, a company called weitec out of europe makes spacers to put on your springs and provide lift.



cant wait to get my wagon dialed, eventually i will have:
-roof bike racks (waiting to install)
-euro grills top and bottom with fogs (parts on the way)
-wings west rear spoiler (located and ordered)
-mudflaps
-1" lift
-rear disc conversion
-bridgestone blizzak ws50 215 65 16

ill post pics soon!

thanks man.

Had a problem getting the fog lights to work. I have stock pig tails that i plugged the fogs into, but under the dash i am missing two plugs on on the wiring harness.

how do i wire it? most of the HOW TO threads on this subject are either deleted or not covered.
