US spec Raceland Coilover kit news!

I emailed raceland and asked if them coming out with the 00-04 coilover kit again was a rumor, here is their reply:

Quote:
Our Belgium location made them for the euro spec Focus and we are currently working on a kit that we are actually in the middle of road testing. If you follow us on Facebook, we will keep you updated on our progress. If you should have any other questions, please let me know.
I replied asking them if they could offer us a group rate discount if there are enough people with an interest in this new, US spec kit. Who would be interested in this? I know I am. I'll post up when I get a responce from them.

They told me that they don't do group discounts but they will likely be running a pre-order special. Oh well, I'll probably be doing the pre-order!

i would be interested in this but i would need to know for certain before hand just how much of a drop this would give. i dont want my car lowered at all any more than 1/2 inch lower than stock zx3 ride height which is stock svt ride height. because im on svt suspension right now and i still have trouble sometimes with dragging my roush nose on the ground.

No info on specs yet, but if you check out their FB there is one kinda crappy picture of they kit on an svt and you can kinda get a sence of their stance. No idea if it's at full low or full high or in the middle.

Not trying to pop your balloons, But if you had a issue w/ one of the coilovers, say LF could you get it or not? Or would you have to get the whole kit again?
