Went with the Sportlines

Ended up going with the Sportlines on my daughter's car.

Same here. Haha! I bought my Sportlines. I wish I could convince them to buy me some coilovers. Haha!

Looks good! The stock height of a Focus is ridiculous.

How do those sportlines handle? What shocks/struts you on?

I have the 1.5" ford racing kit but its slightly too high and way to soft for my liking so thinking replacing soon and while coil overs are super nice they are spendy

Went with FRPP dampers and also replaced the front and rear end links while we were at it. It's rides great, daily driver no problem.

So the whole frpp kit? Where did u purchase? Are the springs so soft that the tires scrape the wheel wells on hard corners or freeway dips? Thats what my frpp springs/shocks/struts do
