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.

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.

i have 30mm on mine and i wish id have gone lower, i can still get over every bump nuck and granny fine no scrapping, so id go 35 or 40 tbh or coilovers then you can adjust it to suit you perfectly!!!

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.

Make sure you post pictures of it.

Same in the UK, I think they are around £200 without fitting

Can't wait to get mine on either!

Been sitting in the cupboard for a month. Everytime I'm off work, the mechanic is booked solid :(

Should be in the next week :)

Oh and the good book says they lower *between* 30-35mm. Obviously less on ZS models as they sit 15mm lower anyway.

Afaik there isn't a 40mm Eibach option...

Looking forward to the piccies Sarah ;)

Changing springs really is not too difficult - If you are even half-skilled with a set of spanners, you can do it at home... Just make sure you get a set of spring compressors (use two - one each side of the spring - never just one because that's when accidents happen - A compressed spring is a dangerous thing!). Do one at a time, should take less than 30 mins a corner even for someone who has never done it before. B)

Of course, if you are not mechanically inclined, there is nothing wrong with getting a mechanic to do it for you either! :)
