2 finger drop...

I just got a zx5 last week and im new to the focus world, im curious which spring setup i could get which would give me roughly a 2 finger drop, i dont want to go any lower because here in michigan the winters are terrible and I had horrible luck in the past with a slammed car, oh this would be with 17 inch rims btw... also if anyone has pictures it would be appreciated, thanks

what do u mean by a 2 finger drop?? like an 1 1/2" drop?? if so.....then i think the eibach pro kit or the svt kit would be the best choice.

pro-kit
svt kit

please. i find that EXTREMELY hard to believe. but anyways...

the prokit gives about a 1.5 in drop, and lets you fit 2 fingers in the wheel gap very snug. (after it settles)

yeah...the prokit and the svt kit i posted will let u fit 2 fingers in the gap. ive got the sportlines and i can slide my hand in between the gap. touches the tire and fender at the same time so im sure the prokit will allow 2 fingers.

Go EIbach Prokit for that look. I've got my car on 17s and it's about that. Here it is after it was up on jacks, so it's a bit higher than it normally looks, but the roads here are probably on par with MI for shittiness, and I've got no issues since the car got dropped in July:
