Different Drops/Opinions

Does anyone have pics of their dropped foci and can you tell me what springs/kit you have? I'm debating on how I want to drop it this summer so I want to see how various kits look and hear about how they perform. Thanks.

a little time searching through the showroom might give you some ideas. here's mine: here it is!

the drop is the FK 35/40 (mm) kit. Just about the cheapest complete set (shocks, struts, and springs) you'll find anywhere (new, at least). they're a progressive-rated springs, which means they allow for a pretty soft ride until you start to press into it in the corners. only complaint i have is that they might be TOO soft. tires tend to rub on hard turns when going pretty fast. some sway bars should fix that, though. otherwise, i think the ride quality is really good (not too bouncy while still feeling sporty), the quality seems good (lifetime warranty and it's TUV approved), and you can't beat the price. you can find this kit lots of places from anywhere between $350-$400 shipped!

Mike
