So i only found one full suspension kit and its the H&R from focussport. Are there any other options for my car for maybe cheaper? i heard maybe saleen kit but i can not find it anywhere. $700 seems a little high for me to lower the car, and while im at it should i do the 1.5" H&R kit if thats what i have to go with? Thanks guys

I went to Eibach, all i saw was lowering springs, not full suspension kits. Link to where i can find it? I don't want to just put on lowering springs, i'd rather do everything in one kit, if i cant get one kit can you lead me to where i can piece each part out?

massive is someone you might want to talk to, they have something called the omni kit which allows you to use any suspension kit from 2000-2008, i have an 07 with the saleen kit and the omni kit, i think out the door that day was 643 and some change. the saleen suspension fits the 05 and down but this kit gives you inserts to allow you to use the smaller front strut. i would give them a call and see what they say.

I dropped my 08' 2 3/4" with H&R coilovers and I drive it daily [driving]

I was a little harsh at first but what really helped smooth out the ride was a FocusSport Rear Stress Bar. I really wasn't expecting that bar to make such a difference but it really brought it all together for a much more comfortable ride.

are the coil overs the same as the cups? is it jaw rattleing

I would not describe the coilovers as "jaw rattling" at all. They were a little harsh at first but nothing unreasonable. The Focus is our daily ride and my wife and I commute together. Had it been that bad she would have complained - believe me! But like I said, that simple (inexpensive) rear stress bar really smoothed things out. It made a very nice difference.

I went with H&R. I posted some before and after pics awhile ago, you'll find that thread HERE.
