This^^^ Both of my Foci are 1.5" lower, ride great and handle even better, with NO clearance issues.

I also don't really want to lower the car that much if at all as the roads around here are pretty damned bad, plus I already have to crawl over some driveways and speed bumps at stock ride height with the original facia.
Yeah I hear you..I have to go slow over speed bumps in my truck too. Gosh darn solid axles

Thank you. I'm about 1-1.5" lower in my svt currently and I feel almost no difference in ride quality. Little stiffer but you get used to it in 5 minutes. She'll soon be kissing pavement and it's not gonna be hardly any different than it is now

Can I report this post for being retarded?


Also unless you add a turbo , your "power" will never "match the badge" and exhaust would prob be too loud for your ears .


Amount of money you prob spent could have bought performance mods, instead of making the car look like something its not

As much as it pains me to say it, I agree with Jordan.

You are a phony Suss, an imitation, a knockoff. You are all show and no go. Dressing your car up to appear as one thing when it really is not. It's like putting a Lamborghini kit on a Fiero.

You can roll a turd in sprinkles, but it's still a turd.
Edit: Also good Mornings people.
