Had a chat with the guys in the Ford dealership today and according to them, they had one customer only who fitted Eibach lowering springs. If I just get the springs and leave the rest as it is, I will not need to do anything else to the car. That is according to them now. Any thoughts about that?
I am so very tempted to start saving for a set of springs and maybe even better shocks. Lenny where did you get your springs from and how much were they shipped if you don't mind me asking? Any suggestions for shocks and where to get them? My only issue is whether the car will be too low to the ground and would scrape going over speed bumps. I reckon the car would look quite good as well sitting a bit lower.
i purchased my eibach kit from ford on ebay. Finis1358918 (for 1.6TDCi, 1.8TDCi and 2.0TDCi)
Buying from ford doesnt effect your warrenty if ford fit them or you have an invoice to say you bought from ford. Which you will have if you buy like i did, or from your local dealership. Ive void all my warrentys at this stage but its good to know ford stand by the product and supply it.
Here is where i bought mine.
Deliverd by GLS but their not blue when they arrive their gloss black so will match your car even better.
I doubt your car will scrape since ford offer the kit as an optional extra but it will sit 40mm from centre wheel cap to centre tip of fender.
Their also selling ford focus 18" rims set of four 400 pounds in both silver or chrome finish, would match in well
But your existing alloys look good enough to me, and like you said the extra profile helps,
Id also recommend fitting the eibach camber adjustment kit, from Performance3000
Cheaper than a tyre and will keep all four wearing evenly after lowering.
Also regarding shocks/Dampers
The bilstein B4 kit also from Performance3000 looks like a fantastic offer,
But im not sure if the B4 kit is a stock spec kit or an upgrade from stock spec
Great price though,
A great video regarding lowering the car is this one lol
