Any lowering kits for A 2007 Ford Focus ZX3????

I have been looking to lower my 07 Focus but the problem is i cant find a complete kit ( shocks and springs) for the 07 year they seem to stop in 06 and begin again in 08. My question is does anybody know of any kits ( maybe 1.5 to 2 inch drop).I do live in ohio and winters can get pretty crazy so I dont want to go to low.. Another question is if there isnt any complete kits what type of shocks should I pair with say Eibachs pro kit lowering springs..

Thanks

You can try and call Tousley Ford, ask for Steve in Parts to see about the FRPP setup that many have. Its about 1.5" drop and matching shocks/dampers, probably one of the most affordable setups if they still produce them.

Also, Massive sells what they call the "omni-kit," it allows you to install any pre '06 suspension. That will greatly increase your selection of suspunsion setups. What is your budget? A set of coil overs will lower you that much and also give you adjustability to go lower.

Check out some of the stickied threads here for more ideas and to start researching possible setups.

I live in Ohio too, spend time between Cleveland and Columbus. I went with a 1.5" lower setup and in hindsight wish i would have saved more to go with coilovers. I'd like to have the choice to go lower in the summer and then back up in the winter. 1.5" drop hasnt had any issues with snow, still sits plenty high.

I meant pre-'06 as in 00-05 are different, '06 and '07 are the same. Sometime during the '05 model life, Ford changed/redesigned the front struts. The omni kit is essentially a sleeve that allows you to fit the slimmer front struts from earlier models into the newer designed front.

Ok. I called eibach a little while back because they had a kit for the 06 and I wanted to know if it would fit and they told me no so maybe they missunderstood me cause I was sure it would.fit. I might have to call them back. I knew there was no changes for the 06 07 model lol
