Springs and struts/shocks would be best, as springs only will completely blow out your stock struts/shocks. Not only that but your ride quality will be terrible as well and your handling will be improved but no where near the level a full combo will achieve, take a look in the suspension section, there is a lot of good info on the kits that are available as there are many out there to choose from.....

spring and shock/strut is needed. afterwards you definatly need an alignment as your toe will be way off. unless you are really low and are worried about tire wear, you dont even need anything to decrease the negative camber. camber = good, IMO.

Ive seen -2 camber with zero toe and no abnormal tire wear. However, my cheapo friends installed camber kits and DIY'd the camber, but didnt bring it to align. His toe was outta wack and now he needs new tires.

Amen brother! -2.1 degrees here with an autoX alignment and no crappy tire wear. People are too worried about camber.

I bought the saleen/Eibach kit and it came with springs, dampers, and sway bars! Great set up and cheap.

I would recommend the FR setup, similar to the SVT setup!

Try using the Focus Fanatic vendor section. It's pretty rare that you can find full kit prices lower than many of our approved vendors.

Call Hilbish Ford 888 360 4399 ask for Mike in the parts department , if the FRPP deal is still going on you may want to jump on it . I got everything including sway bars for a little over $600.00
