I back your decision to make your car look the way you want it to and make it your own even if people here on the forums don't "approve" of. Do you, and screw the rest.
That being said there is no reason to get snippy with other users because they don't like what you have done so far. Most of these guys really know what they are talking about and it's a wonderful thing to get input on projects you are working on, especially with so many people who have painted interior parts of their cars. If you don't want the suggestions or comments then don't complain about how your thread is dying, no one is paying attention to you and making it seem like you are trying to pick a fight. But then again, the problem with the internet is that you can't fully understand the complete motives behind the words written. So maybe I'm just reading all this wrong.

I'm not trying to start anything, just offering my two cents even though it will probably fall on deaf ears.
I do completely apologize if this post is taken the wrong way.

No problems man. Iv work on cars as soon as i could pick up a wrench. Im not the kinda guy to argue unless you tell me what i did and didnt do to my car. Im not mad all i did was tell him i special ordered stiffer springs for an extra $200 but hey all the bull aside let post some pics and keep this thing going.

I swear, Walmart is the downfall of our cars. back when I drove the focus, I got a crease in the passenger door just behind the driver's door. also got a crease in my passenger side A pillar the same way.

In all honesty though, I am curious as to why the stiffer stock height springs.

Well i live on nothing but unpaved country roads and when i had H&Rs 2" lowering springs all i did was bottom out. So i called eibech and they had the solution.

I'm not sure. I might have to work. If it was a little closer I might be able to make it.

I asked it off already it's only 6.5 hours away. 1.5 hours closer than "focus in the field" was.

Nvm your probably on the other side of ohio I was thinking you was by me for some reason. So that most likely adds 4 hours to the drive.
