again, I appreciate the info... I'm enjoying the forum... gives me something to do since I dont have any money, lol...
They might be OK but why gamble.....why not go with a SVT shock with an SVT spring. Kind of seems like a no brainer. They're just as good AND cost a lot less!

That too was my reasoning... because we test drove an SVT and then bought an ST I noticed the change in handling... I liked it and planned to put the SVT parts on my car (some amazing ebay deals...), but wanted to get a little more feedback before deciding.

just as good at lower cost = count me in.

Thanks!

06 zx3 suspension

I have a 2006 ford focus zx3 and I am having a hard time finding more than just lowered coil springs. I really like the H&R cup kit but I cant find it for the 06. What do you suggest.

yea they are pretty old, the paint is peeling and when i took a glance while up on the hoist i didnt see any brand. does anyone have any idea how low skunks drop the zx3? would roush struts and shocks be a comparable replacement for my konis? thanks guys.

So I want to drop my 09' Focus Coupe, any recommendations? It's been suggested to me that I go will full coilovers, those are a bit pricey but apparently the best.
