They claim to have access to some GC sleeves if you put in 99 and up Focus. Maybe from overseas?

The cheapest decent custom race setup is gonna be around $2900. Im pretty sure I can do it for less than that if I could find some GC sleeves.
I have ordered from Shox before, no problems

I've also been looking for GC rear coilovers for years now with no luck. I even sent GC several emails asking about special orders. Got no response. I was cruising their site a few weeks ago and noticed they have released a coilover kit for the new ST focus. Just by looking at the pics of the rear set up im thinking it may fit the mk1 focus rear subframe as well. I may have to call them.

Im currently using the KW V1 and the rear springs are way to soft for track in my opinion.

Fronts on the left/rears on the right. Just eyeballing things the rears do look like they would indeed fit older Focii.

The front REALLY doesn't matter unless you plan to use the OEM tophats and again eyeballing these, there is a chance they could work too.

You could possibly contact https://www.roadmagnet.com/ford-focus-lowering-springs and see if they could wind you a stiffer spring.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
