To go lower you need to consider an adjustable coil-over shock/spring set. There are several that will drop lower than 2.5 inches. Just be aware that the lower you go the stiffer the springs need to be to make up for the loss in suspension travel. What remains of ride quality will be significantly compromised. ANY drop spring, including the Sportlines, requires a shorter and firmer shock to effectively dampen them as well.

For lower, try H&R's sport cup kit= 2.6'' I believe. I just added Eibach's sportline system, a little while ago.

2nd this^^ the cup kit comes with matched shock that are made for the low drop. If u want to go lower then coilovers.

Is the cup kit out for 06-07 yet? Last time I checked, it wasn't. Otherwise you're going to have to go coilovers: H&R, ST, or DGR.

Haha the H&R cup kit development for the 06-07 Focus looks to moving along about as well as F2's Duratec supercharger kit. I wouldn't count on it being released while you still have your Focus

Get that omni kit from massive. Would that would work the cup kit?
Yeah, the cup kit will allow you to run any 00-05 suspension kit. It'll also set you back an extra $100, which would probably still be less than coils.

Go with some raceland coils!
Remember that he has an 06, so if he's going to drop the money on a 00-05 coilover set and have to buy the Massive Omni Kit, he might as well drop the money for the 06-07 H&R or ST coilovers.
