Yea, i like the sound too, a short ram just makes it sound that much better. I sold all my parts with my last focus so I will probably be doing that soon. Also I would recommend pulling the headlights apart and painting all the chrome. unless your one for chrome... headlights also change the car a lot.

I have the grey bezels, can't really tell the chrome is there hardly. Just need a light tinting on the fogs to match and I think it will look good.

eibach springs more track than DD?? bahahaha

first thing to do is a tune up make sure everything is good on the car.

Then do suspension mods - springs, struts, sway bars.

then power mods - header, flex back exhaust, better flowing air filter and tune.

It was just in for an inspection when the new shoes got put on, everything was fine except for brakes (rotors and pads). We knew they were bad when we got the car, but haven't done anything yet.

Update us when done!



I said that because people often complain about eibach being too stiff? Explain the humor, I've never owned a pair and am just going off of customer reviews ect.

Finished product. Very, very happy with the way it turned out. A few mistakes, but overall nice.

It takes a steady hand, but the results are worth it.
