I'm putting H&R Sport Springs on my '03 wagon. Where do you find $10 camber bolts?
Thanks.

And then you would just need the Omni kit from Massive for the 06-07 right? Looking to do this to my 07.

And I assume that's a beefier front sway bar in the kit? Work with stock parts?

Quote is from an OLD post, but still valid if you can find a kit for sale.

Omni kit to fit it to a newer model, the bar is for the REAR and is 21mm instead of the std. 20mm if you have one.

Thanks. I did not want to start another thread. Im surprised it hasn't been kept so active. I feel like I'm the only 07 owner out there, doing work.

This thread was started to list info. on existing suspension kits, at the time on the older models.

There have been no lift kits for any of the models to date, including your MkIII type.

You could start a new thread here or in the MkIII section for ideas, maybe even look in the rally Racing section to see what has been done with older cars for a SMALL lift (custom spring spacers for the cheap end, very expensive commercial custom suspension at the high end).

The car is NOT body on frame, so a body lift is not possible.


Here's just one Rally thread for ideas:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/r...y-x-build.html



P.S. - yet to see anyone try to space lower the suspension sub frames/struts/swing arms/steering/engine& trans mounts.
