OBX Coilovers Coil-Overs 00-04 Ford Focus ZX3/ZX5/SE/LX

What do you guys think of this?

You are bidding on an OBX Gravatation Control Coilover Kit for the 00-Up Ford Focus (Part #HK021). Fits ALL 2000 to 2004 Ford Focus models including: LX, SE, ZTS, ZX3, and ZX5. Adjust the ride height of your vehicle up to three inches. Brand new and still sealed in box. Includes all the hardware necessary for the install. Also comes with a lifetime warranty from manufacturer defects. Why pay more elsewhere when you can buy it now for $125!

I would never trust my car's suspension with OBX parts. You get what you pay for.

I am on a real tight budget and want to get something that is going to last and make a difference. What do you suggest? Eibach is good but a little too pricey. Costs too much for me.

What kind of shocks are you starting with? No, I would not go with the Ebay stuff. A number of people have mentioned good deals on Progress spring sets (1.8 in drop, 142f, 160r spring rates). Goldlines tend to sell for a little less as well, have few complaints, result in a reasonable drop of 1.5 inches and have modest spring rates (140 f, 170r). If you don't currently have good shocks forget about aftermarket springs for awhile until you can save up for some. I understand you want to save money, but being cheap usually backfires on you when you have to do it all over again to correct the mistake. Better to do it the right way once.

I agree with you on that. The shocks that i have are original and the car is a 2004 model so it still runs smooth even with 18's. i just want a more agressive look without sacrificing ride quality. Because i shit you not my car looks like a mini monster truck. Some one please help.

those add on coilovers seldom deliver anything that closely rersembles the right spring rate for the strut. they typically are rock hard and overrun the strut damping so bad, you'll lose your fillings.

for coilovers, the only way to go is a matched spring/strut assy like K&W or the like.

Good choice, OBX is junk. About the only thing that is decent would be their headers in which the welds are actually really good. Suspension is one thing you NEVER want to cheap out on.

dont budget on suspension, if you go cheap like OBX and they go on you, you can possibly die (god forbid) but thats the worst case scenario...however it is better to save up if you on a tight budget and do it right to first time around.
