Eibach Pro-Kit installed





Now, that's the height that all Zetec's should come out of the factory!!

I am very impressed with the Eibachs, thanks for all the recommendations and the unwavering concensus that the Eibach's are the way to go.

Graham

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit installed

Graham,

One hell of a good looking car. If I had my choice, that would be thew exact Focus I'd have......perfect............except I'd take off the R stickers!

Good job. What's the ride like?

Looks great Graham, you made the right choice. Now be careful going into and out of driveways!

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit installed

Update : Answer to questions concerning ride.

The ride is a tad firmer now, with more 'feel' of the road, but by no means harsh. Undulations in the road are followed more closely now, which is good as I do not like a 'floaty' ride.

Cornering is even more like the car is on rails, with even less body roll than before. It make's most othe cars feel 'barge' live, even the XR6's I drive around at work.

Downsides?? Only two and I can live with them --- Now I do have to slow down (more) over pesky speed humps and at level crossings, especially when the rail lines are an inch or so higher than the road surface, and secondly I have to be VERY aware when parking head on spaces to watch out for kerbs etc.

All in all I am very satisfied, and my wife loves it too, which is great as technically the car is hers!!!

Graham
