Air Shocks are ancient technology. Air Shocks dont react in a manner that would help todays suspensions. Now if you are are using air suspension that is completely different, An air suspension would be used on all 4 corners of the vehicle with an "active air compressor". An active air compressor will constantly adjust air pressure in the system to accommodate the needs of each shock. This would keep the car stable and in control without upsetting the balance of the car.
Air shocks use pressurized air to just raise or lower the rear of the car to help the coil springs carry extra weight. And if air pressure is to high or too low the natural balance of the suspension is upset when no extra weight is applied to the rear suspension. For example the front suspension would either carry excessive weight or not enough weight and cause either tight or loose steering resulting in dangerous handling.
So in a nutshell the weight distribution will now be upset and handling is garbage.
So stay away from Air Shocks unless you want to constantly adjust your rear shocks to maintain stability and comfort.
Besides I doubt if there are any Air Shocks for the Focus.
As far as the independent suspension Air Shocks will constantly change the rear geometry camber and caster can change as much as 1 degree degrading handling and tire wear dramatically.
Timbren doesn't have a specific Focus kit but maybe you could find a option small enough and adapt it for what you're wanting? If properly installed they won't engage until the vehicle is sufficiently loaded.
Here's the info....got home from a gig Friday night. Parked in the garage. Sunday morning and I go to install a back up camera and the new battery is completely dead. Put it on the charger while I finish up.
It cranks up but the charger meter is showing it's still only at half.
Hi all, I had ordered new cable shifter bushings and was wondering if anyone has a tutorial or at least has some experience in installing them and if possible link another thread or something like that. As all the ones that I've seen are for the ST models and not for the regular base models.
Hey FF friends, I am thinking about getting the FSWERKS Cool Flo CAI paired with the stealth exhaust as the first mods to my car. I have read a lot of reviews that say the two are a perfect combo with a slight increase in performance and huge increase in sound, which is what I am looking for. I...
