  1. MK3 Focus
    I recently found out that my front passenger side lower ball joint was no longer good on my 2016 SE. I decided to just buy brand new control arms with greaseable ball joints. I bought a pair of front lower control arms from Rock Auto, manufactured by Mevotech. The new unit is basically exactly...
  2. Wheels & Tires
    So my friend managed to break his rear coil spring into 4 pieces. With the pandemic he couldn't afford to get it fixed and I offered to fix it for them. I did not know what I was getting into. Well the rear lower control arm bolt was so badly rusted it snapped with trying to remove it finding...
  3. MK3 Interior Mods & Upgrades
    I recently bought and installed Ford lowering springs part # M-5300-S and it said up to .03 in rear and .06 in the front. The rear lowered as it should but not the front? I think it's even higher then stock now lol? I didn't install myself, had a local shop. I seen where similar kits say so...
  4. MK3 Focus
    2017 sedan s 5m. From what I read, I should be able to st swap front/rear springs and front struts. Any suggestions for rear struts and other parts I'll need that I can find at a junkyard? Im trying to do this all from junkyard parts. First post btw, and yes I have read through many of the...
  5. Brakes, Suspension & Body Chassis
    Discussion time... So I have a 2009 SE manual coupe, 149k mi on the OEM suspension. Factory front and rear sway bars (21/20mm F/R, respectively). I have always thought this car was really soft, it dives when I brake at almost any speed, squats under acceleration in all gears, and wallows...
  6. Focus SVT
    So I just recently purchased my first SVT. It was pretty neglected by the previous owner but I didn't mind the project. I've fixed 80% of the issues however this one is really giving me some issues. The issue: When driving down the road there is a very loud clunking noise the car makes. It's...

  8. Brakes & Suspension
    I have had this combination of suspension parts on my car for roughly 5 years and it has suited me well. Roughly 45,000 miles on all the parts an no signs of leaks on any of the shocks or struts. You could have them rebuilt or simply beat the rest of the life out of them, your choice! :) Selling...

  10. Wheels & Tires
    Hi FF! So as you might have guessed by now I have a question about my anti-roll bar link rods. As many of you might know, that stock rods are cast pieces that aren't worth much as far as quality is concerned. Mine have already broken, due to pot holes no doubt, and i'm looking into acquiring new...
  11. Wheels & Tires
    Hey Guys I have quite a bit of questions, does anybody know if he's still selling the loweing kit for $380? I thought they used to have a sponser forum on here. I believe it's the frrp kit that lowers 1.5', how does that compare to the eibach? I've also heard that eibach manufactures that kit?
  12. Brakes, Suspension & Body Chassis
    I am going to lower and put front/rear sways on my Focus. I'm split between Koni and Eibach. What do you guys think?
  13. Wheels & Tires
    I decided to do a little preventive maintenance on my 2001 ZTS. Timing belt, etc, prepatory for a cross-country trip this winter. I removed both rear shock absorbers expecting to find them having flabbiness and general decrepitude at 78,000 miles. Instead, I found them to both be in perfect...
  14. Brakes, Suspension & Body Chassis
    Well today i put on my Roush Front and Rear Struts and springs and my SVT Rear Sway Bar (had no sway bar previously). It took 8 hrs and had to fabricate 4 pieces (see below). It was a fun job, and really not that hard. Had no real problems and i am liking the results (and can't wait for...
