Easiest thing to do (but not cheapest) would be to book it in to the garage at your ford dealership and get the springs replaced with bog-standard Mondeo springs from a standard model. Should be a simple swap over. Springs wont cost very much at all, but with labour I would imagine you're looking at £250-£300. Drive down there and they will give you an accurate quote
Jonny, your wrong there im afraid. The sports suspension on the new Mondeo has a completely different geometry to the standard setup. It would be quite a big and expensive job as the whole setup would have to be replaced. My Mondeo has 17 inch alloys and IVDC (adaptive suspension) and the ride is very harsh on the sport setting. For this reason, I dont think changing the wheels would solve the issue. I tried a Mondeo with sport suspension on 18s and the ride was awful, im not surprised so many people are complaining!
