Who's Lowered A 2006 Focus Yet?

Has anybody lowered their 2006 Focus yet? If so, what spring did you use? I like using Eibach but Ford changed the front strut for 2006 so the Eibach Pro Kit won't work even though they say it's the same part number. Who can help? I need to start lowering some 2006 Focus's. Thanks!

Just 2006. Have no idea why. Same body style. I even ordered the 2005 strut so I can use the Eibach spring but that won't even fit the 2006.

that's pretty messed up for them to make all those changes for 05 then change even more only 1 year later.
