from what ive read they last about 2 years and they have a tendancy to round off the allen key slots on the top mounts in fairness youde be better with eibach springs ford sell and recommend them as a suspension upgrade they dont rate or recommend any coilovers also think about where you live speed humps etc ive pxxsed myself so many times laughing at slammed cars picking up bits of exhaust and bumpers from the road as i zoom past

thanks for your advice i think i will go for the eibach springs i think there 30mm drop my focus is a 2.0 titanium petrol 2006 model and it just lookslike its sitting high. If i put a k&n panel filter with a drilled hole in the airbox will it sound btter too i also have a cat back sytrem so it should drive abit better i think

it will be a bit better the 30mm drop is noticeable and should help the k and n is fine its just a fact industion kits dont gain power on these cars lets be honest if ford could save 20 million on research by fitting induction kits they would have done it already on another note stoney me old mucker check youre led indicators thats a replacement being sent already as the plastic lens is coming away on one side

i think they would look good in gloss black mate and perhaps a tripleRcomposites front splitter to match as they come supplied in gloss black. i
also plan to do this mod before november.
