woodysbodywerx
welcome to the site

any plans for it or just on here for advice etc?
pea
im planning a little drop and a set of pepper pots, and then just sticker bomb the fuel cap and rear windows.

maybe more depends how it looks

don't bother, looks crap/chavvy/tacky

personally i would fit zetec s front bumper and skirts and then get rear zetec s bumpercut and moulded onto standard bumper so it would fit
pea
sounds like a good idea im mostly worried about the drop at the moment

hmmm, is there no spring under there at all?
pea
not from what i can see but i havent had the time to take the wheel off yet and have a proper look.

tbh sounds like the rear axle is like whats on the early vw caddy vans, i'll find you a link for a how to guide to lower the rear of them
pea
that'll be greatly appreciated thank you :)
woodysbodywerx
these might come in handy

there are other guides with pics on that site but you need to sign up to view them
pea
i think the plates are the best idea not too keen on flipping the axle
woodysbodywerx
shorter shocks are advisable with either method
pea
so id have to buy new shocks?

would i get them specifically for my mk

yes you'd need new shorter shocks, i doubt you'd get them specific for the vehicle, when people lower the caddys they use beetle shocks
pea
but what ford would have shorter shocks?

the ka possibly?
woodysbodywerx
the rear shocks on ka's are macpherson struts (spring over the shock), can't use them tbh

best emailing a few places like gmax and spax and ask them if they do any shorter shocks for the courier
pea
ill do that :)
thanks for the help
woodysbodywerx
no problem
pea
is your fiesta modified?
woodysbodywerx
both of them are
pea
both of them? what have you got?
any pics atal
woodysbodywerx
2 mk5 zetec s's, ones a track car, other is for road, no pics at min, both completely stripped down for full resprays and other work
pea
nice :) where abouts are you from?
woodysbodywerx
does it matter?
pea
no i was just asking to see if you new a few fez owners that live in my area
woodysbodywerx
nope, i'm other end of country

get onto ukfn if you want to find people near you
pea
okay cool im only looking for help with my van tbh

it'll be the first real project ive ever done
