Evening all.

We get our 09 Fusion this week, in the 1.4tdci version, which should take me to work with no problems,

there are a couple of things I'd like to change..

Firstly the ride hight is a little too 4x4 for me, so would like to bring it down to earth a touch, I've been told that MK6 Fiesta springs are the same, but I'm not sure, is there someone here that knows having fitted them to their Fusion..

All the best and thanks

Nick!

It only lowered it by 25mm but the cornering is where the main gains are

not too much, about 25mm, plan is to fit 16" wheels, but 17" look better... oh the joys of ford ownership!

True that! There'd be plenty of room for 17s if you want to go that way though, I have the standard 15s on mine and you could crawl through the gap between arch and alloy!
I really have to get around to sorting it out, with a full car there's massive roll in the corners
