Yeah Steeda was working on these springs before I even made it to the shop the first time last August. The one that was on their Sema car was the first set that didnt meet their standards and went back to the drawing boards to get it right. I cant wait to get these on the car since I already have the RSB i am hoping the under steer will be completely gone. if not I will have to get the race sway bar kit

@bill9886, yeah they did mention that it most likely would not be made for the reasons I posted above. Never know FSwerks may make one, they have on other MK models

I think the Focus handles great for a factory car, but there is room for improvement. I wanna get their Rear Sway Bar too. Are they gonna have a Front Sway Bar Kit? I bet with a Front and Rear Sway Bar Kit and those Springs, it will be a serious handling Focus.

Well, you seem to be well connected to Steeda. I am hoping to get these springs (if they turn out to be nice, which they sound like they are gonna be) and at least the rear sway bar installed before I leave Texas so I can test out the handling on TX 138, thats a fun curvy road I take everyday to work.

Just wondering if you put these springs on your car and something related goes bad on the car will ford still cover you under the 3 year bumper to bumper warranty?

No.
If you put these on and your struts go out Ford won't cover it. If your head gasket blows though, you'll be covered.

Ford will have to prove that the aftermarket parts could cause what ever went wrong. So any suspension issues will likely not be covered.

Order has been placed for the springs, install should happen over the weekend or Monday at the latest.

Thanks Steeda Brandon

That depends on the dealership. Ford leaves warranty voidance up to individual dealerships to decide.

If you have concerns about this, I suggest speaking with your local service manager about it and make sure to mention that they are Steeda products.
