Just get some spacers for the front and a taller spring in the back w/ the same spring rate!! It should be easily doable.

BAT sells adjustable coil overs that allows for minor lift over stock ride height.

i guess you could use mazda 3 springs and that would give you a little lift since the 3's are a lil bit heavier and do sit a lil' bit lower.

i think in stock form it would look funny. but with a nice wheel/tire combo it would look kinda intriguing..... a zx5 with a roof rack and a decent 17 inch wheel and tire setup.....

While adjustable coil overs are very good at lowering a car they do a lousy job at raising them unless they have a separate height adjustment (lower shock attachment point can be threaded up and down as well as the spring perch). On those coil overs with just a spring perch adjustment you have to compress the spring a lot to get any increase in height and as a result, suspension travel is affected as well as ride quality.

I've tossed around the idea of a "dune-buggy" style Focus myself. It'd be interesting to say the least... wouldn't perform like we're all used to, but it would be fun to go mudding in a Focus... hahaha.

The real question is, in all seriousness, how high do you want to go???
