Brent's a big baby. Lol. He says it's slow but runs low boost. He also bought used stuff.

Wtf are you spending 1200-1500 on suspension? Coilovers aren't that much, they are just under 900 for ksports.

Also Kyle you should join the Sonic forum (sonicownersforum.com). There's lots of info on the RS there in regards to specs. From the quick glance I took at the RS sub forum, it looks like August 16th is when you can place an order.

You don't necessary need camber plates or arms. Yes you can get them, but don't 100% need them. I'm not using them. Lots of people don't. Natural camber unless you wanna stance it and make it look like that celica with 15 degree camber

And yes kevin kw v1 would be worth spending that much

For a proper, not tire shredder alignment, on a focus i would run both rear adjustments. The front is fine, the rear is what has issues. But then again, i like my tires to last more than a year.

My car could never even out toe or camber when i was slammed. Thus the adjustments.

I was about 23 in front and 23.5 in rear on my konis



Thats my average height on konis.



Winter height on h&rs.

I'm not trolling the sonic forum Mike. I'll join if I get one.
