I did not check the part number you said, I checked the part number on my box earlier today and called a local shop to double check them. Then went online and checked it again.

lol..i got the pro kit..i had the same problem as you..so i just jerry rigged it to work..i put the springs in (like you would on an older version of teh foci) and took a nice hammer and banged the shiznit outta the bottom of the cup to make sure it wouldn't slide off..they haven't and i've been driving around (crazy and regular) for about 3 months with them that way..i woudln't recommend this..i would definentally tell them to send you the right ones..and tell your shop to send those back (free of charge to you) for not dbl checking and making sure thye would fit.

Yes the new ones were ordered today. Eibach seems to have forgoten to inform their vendors of the change. Everyone I talked to said the part number on Eibach's site says 2000 - 2006. Although when I called Eibach they said NO that is not the right kit. So I went to where I baught it and they called Eibach, Eibach then told them they would send the kit free shipping to make it good. So I will let everyone know in a few days when I get the right kit in.

Sweet post pics when you get done, I will be getting the prokit myself b/c I will scrape everywhere with sportlines.

Oh and please post a pic of the springs before you put them on, that way we can compare the shape to other kits to make sure they are the right ones before we start the install.

No I dont have either, I am just judging by looking at your pics that you posted. My driveway has a pretty steep downward slope right off the road so I know I will scrape there. Also my last focus had coilovers, it was dropped about the height of the pro kit and I was fine with that.

I like the look of the sportlines but I cant sacrifice being able to drive into my own driveway for it.

Yes I will post pics all around. I just bought this Focus and did not want to post pics till it was done. I have had it for a week and would of had most everything done this weekend if I would of had the right springs. My exhaust is on order and should be here this week sometime. TV, DVD, Stereo system, K&N CAI all installed just waiting on other things to come in and I will post pics.
