idk why everyone says to buy the best lol. Springs dont matter, as long as you have adjustable shocks/struts that you can adjust for different spring rates.

Get kyb agx shocks and struts, and ebay springs. It'll cost 400$ for the package.

I drove my focus without springs for one day lol.

cheapo springs arent gonna cause a catastrophic failure like when a ball joint snaps, and the hub flies off, or a cv joint rips off and the hub also flies off ;p

Not that im tryin to tell timbo to go out and drive springless that was dumb haha never again
