i found some ford racing springs for cheap, so im gonna try them out. ill probly run those until my stock struts are shot. haha, in the mean time im gonna save for some nice coil overs, and other suspension stuffs. i want to hug some wicked curves! but for now tho, these will get me by. the intake wasnt as much of a difference as i was hoping for, but still better. im woundering if a better set up would produce better results?

With those springs on the stock shocks and struts its not gonna take long for your stock set up to go out on you. I would just save up and get what you want and do all the suspension upgrades at 1 time unless you just wanna tear your Focus apart several times .
