    What about the Eibach PS kit with the Bilsteins? I've run Bilsteins in most of my RWD cars but never in FWD. I love the ride quality of the Bilsteins.

    I have had the Bilstein in my Focus Mk2 ST. Brilliant to handle.

    The Eibach ProStreet S coilover kit is available from that site and not in development or so.

    Thanks for the response. That seals the deal for me with Bilsteins. It wasn't going to be too hard of a sale since I was 98% sure I was going to give them a shot. I'm all about handling in a daily driver. That's what I like about the Bilsteins, they are firm yet comfortable. My hope is to install the Bilsteins with new springs and sway bar(s). (s) is if they come up with a nice front sway bar. Not too sure about having 25MM sway bars front and rear. Doing research on that.

    I'm not saying that the site isn't selling something - I'm saying that if Eibach says their product hasn't been released, I'm skeptical of what that site is selling.

    If you're referring to those upper control arms with camber adjustment, those are the standard SPC arms. They work on the C170, C1 and C346 cars.

    Can you translate for those of us who know nothing about this? i.e., will they fit our STs?

    The Eibach kit we're using in the Focus Block STyle is a joint prototype between Ford Racing and Eibach, and it's basically the Eibach R1 kit with a few spring and damper tweaks.

    In the Focus TrackSTer we've again teamed up with Eibach to assemble a proprietary R2 kit, complete with remote reservoirs and fifteen52-prescribed springs and damper specs.

    Very soon we hope to release for the Focus ST both R1 and R2-based Eibach kits under the fifteen52 label.

    In my opinion that is the perfect look.
