Thanks for the heads up. I'm dying for a set but might wait for H&R since it drops more. Sportline's will have a larger drop, right??

Yeah, the drop on the mustang was rated at 1.5 inches for the sportlines, but it was closer to 2" when I put them on. I'm going to wait as well, since I don't think a .8 inch drop is worth the time and money.

i wonder how they compare to the different springs in the focus already as the non sport, sport and titanium all have different part numbers and stiffness.

I think it sounds perfect, I like the ride height of my Focus, but a little less body roll would be great in the twisties.

No coilovers? That's unfortunate.

H&R Coilovers with these Eibach front and rear sway bars certainly sounds like a nice suspension setup to me, though.

There are a few '12 Coilovers available already.

Also dumb question, but adding springs and coilovers to your car shouldn't affect Warranty right?

Adding springs would probably affected the warranty on your shocks. Since coilovers replace both, you should be okay but any undercarriage damage would probably also be not covered (if for some reason they would have in the first place) because of lowering.

How much is the Eibach kit? I'd have to clear it with my prettier half, but I'd love a slightly sportier ride.

Would love to get coil overs but just can't part ways with $1100 for lowering the car :lol:

Unless you track the car in some capacity, it is hard to justify coilovers on this thing. I'd at least go for the H&R springs when they become available to get more lowering than the Eibachs.

Like deftones stated, everything I have seen points towards these settling more than the documented 0.8". I expect to get at least an inch out of these once it's all said and done.

Hopefully taking delivery on my car this week. These will come soon after.

I will most likely be ordering these in the next week or so, I am going to call CFM to see if they can get these.

PS any one good with Photoshop want to take a stab of what the car will look like if lowered

Here is a picture of mine
