dropped 2 inches already, and you can drop 2 more? if you drop two more, you're going to be blinding people driving behind you with sparks from the underside of your car

nope. tried it for like an hour. i was pretty much on the bump stops. way too harsh of a ride. 2 inch drop is perfect on the stock suspension looks how i wanted it and handles like on rails but still has nice travel for the potholes

actually it's not really "perfect" drop. im guessing that your stock struts will last maybe until the end of the summer. ebay cheepos are worthless. my friend has a set and it has to be one of the worst ride quality cars i've even been in. you get what you pay for...

over a year now and nothing wrong. had all of my suspension check out and everything is in great condition. also from what i've researched the stock suspension can handle up to a 2 inch drop without adversely affecting the suspension capabilities and geometry and durability. from my wn real experience nothing wrong so far, i'm happy i'd recommend the springs to others

I bought the same Coilover Springs a few months ago but I haven't installed it yet because it costs too much money to install it, around $350 - UP.

Is it safe for me to do the install myself?
I'm think of buying a Focus Book how-to do and install it myself but I ain't sure if it's safe and if I can do it myself. Do I need something else beside the springs?

hey whats up man (wndcdn) it's it's actually pretty easy to install the springs yourself. i did it twice when i had my foci (2002 and 2004) about 2 hours for the whole install time. i seeyou live pretty close to me i live like 15 minutes from the detroit/windsor border (tunnel) maybe wecould get together or something and tinker with it. i would it dirt cheap. just for my time and thats it. alot cheaper than shops. get a hold of me and maybe we could meet. peace. you can also mail me at peterwysocki@hotmail.com my names peter btw. i'm out.

if you want to get a little lower with more shock travel..just cut down that bump stop to half...the one on the control arm....will free up some travel for potholes......just a suggestion...had to do it with my one piece gaz coils....
