Well I got the coilovers installed after a LOOOOOOOOONG day!!

The rears look damn near perfect...



Overall the install went pretty smoothly, but cannot have been completed without the many texts and pms throughout the day with fellow fanatic 2012-Focus. He helped BIG time guiding me through the install...









Anyways, I still need to adjust the front coils down some more. The car is level now but with the rear wheel arch being lower than the front wheel arch, it's going to give the appearance that it's raked to the rear. Once I lower the front some more, it'll look better IMO.

I'm done for the day though, I'm tired, sunburnt, and dehydrated...going to bed and messing with the car some more tomorrow...

I like your choice of lug nuts too, oh so pretty.

Looks real good! Nice to have you back in the Focus family. I love to see these cars dropped! Can't wait to see the front lowered more. Have you thought about getting TI headlights, or doing what Dyn085 did to his.

Looks amazing with the new rims and the drop. Definitely best two appearance upgrades right there! I bet it feels like you're driving a whole nother car once you upgrade like that :P
