Hi All,

 

I have a Mk7 Fiesta Titanium and am looking into lowering it.  I have heard that all Titanium models stand around 10mm higher than the others but i'm not 100% sure on this?  

 

I'm not sure what lowing kit brand to go for or how much to lower it by.  

 

I'd like to notice that its lower but not loose the ride's smoothness completely? 

 

Any advice would be great!!

 

Thanks :D

How low do you want? You after looks or handling?

I don't think you can go wrong with the Eibachs. 30 to 35mm drop, and top quality. You can go lower but you'll wear the shocks a bit quicker and things may get crashy.

Hey,

 

I'm not sure how low to go exactly?  I think i'm after abit of both looks and handling but more looks wise as i'm not going to be throwing it  around too much :)

H&R do a 50mm kit but I think that might be a bit too low. I'd seriously consider the Eibachs. You will notice a big difference on the Titanium.

Thanks, i've been looking into the Eibachs and they seem really good.  I was thinking for 40mm. Just checking out prices now!

I bought mine 2nd hand from someone on an old Corsa C I had but I done some research beforehand and they are hard to beat for quality

Snap, same car as mine :)

 

Would be good to see some photos after it's been lowered, but I won't be lowering mine.

The official Ford lowering springs (at least here in Denmark) are 30mm Eibach. I'm getting my 2013 Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost 5 door Titanium lowered tomorrow - not at Ford though but at a different mechanic that took care of my old car.
