Hello Folks!

Focus is my first car i ever had, bought it like 7 months ago! i was thinking to lower my suspension, but don't wanna invest too much money in it, well i am looking for cheapest solution.

Since i am taking it to garage on Monday, to repair some bits, i was thinking could lower it down in mean time as well.

So the question is - shall i ask mechanics if they can just cut the springs shorter or anythign like that ? Would that by safe and possible ?

What would be your cheapest rommendation?

Here you can see the picture from autotrader, just before i bough it.




Ant help would be highly appreciated.

cheers

Don't cut your springs the SVT suspension kit is the best bag for buck come with everything to springs and shocks and struts
How much would that be ?

The way it is now, it looks kinda bad, coz of the low profile tires, i am wondering, maybe i should just get a better tires or something!

I am planning too sell it before Christmas anyways, so dunno what exactly to do heh .

thanks for help!

why would you sell it. the car is very quick (not fast) but it suit the twisty roads you have over there to a t. it was actualy designed over there. i'd say keep it. and lower it the right way. jsut save your cash and it'll come easily. jsut take your time. hells ive had mine for 3 years. i've jsut now gotten it lowered.

Cutting your springs isn't a good solution. It weakens the springs, SVT is probably the best way to go but if you're selling your car then there's really no point.
