cool, thanks... what about GR2s with stock SVT springs? is even the .75" drop too much?

I know kids on the prelude forum have dropped the gr2s 1.5", but I was even ambivalent about dropping my agxes 1.7" in the front (as they advertised a max drop of 1.5")... my motorsports shop (blueridge motorsports) assured me it would be okay... so far, after two years, they have been right!

again, I appreciate the info... I'm enjoying the forum... gives me something to do since I dont have any money, lol...
They might be OK but why gamble.....why not go with a SVT shock with an SVT spring. Kind of seems like a no brainer. They're just as good AND cost a lot less!

That too was my reasoning... because we test drove an SVT and then bought an ST I noticed the change in handling... I liked it and planned to put the SVT parts on my car (some amazing ebay deals...), but wanted to get a little more feedback before deciding.

just as good at lower cost = count me in.

Thanks!

06 zx3 suspension

I have a 2006 ford focus zx3 and I am having a hard time finding more than just lowered coil springs. I really like the H&R cup kit but I cant find it for the 06. What do you suggest.

KW springs are usually yellow, but there's probably others as well. Have you looked at the springs closely (you may have to wipe them off if dirty) as most companies put their name or logo on one of the coils.
yea they are pretty old, the paint is peeling and when i took a glance while up on the hoist i didnt see any brand. does anyone have any idea how low skunks drop the zx3? would roush struts and shocks be a comparable replacement for my konis? thanks guys.

So I want to drop my 09' Focus Coupe, any recommendations? It's been suggested to me that I go will full coilovers, those are a bit pricey but apparently the best.

your guess is good as mine, i dont deal with cheap/crap set ups.
teh eibach suspension kit is not a cheap/crap kit.

is it less than coilovers? yes

does eibcah make a good qaulty kit? yes

if you are not racing/ autox your car is there really a NEED for coilovers or adjustables

H&R beats the shit our of eibach suspensions any day of the week.

I had Koni adjustable shocks with H&R race springs on the last car, an you talk about go cart handling.......well that had it hands down. go threw eibach springs alone an figure out which set has springs rates that are 325 front an 375 rear or higher for our car.

eibach makes soft "user comfort" suspensions for everyday drivers.

the last time i talked to tony at newedgeperformance.com he told me to stay away from eibach because half the time the don't honor there warranty.

inch and a 1/4 in the front an 1 inch in the rear.

and the only shocks that can handle those spring's are Koni adjustables. you'll blow your svt ones with in probably a week because of the spring rate.
