  1. Focus ST Suspension
    Noticed over the last week my 2014 st was experiencing some clunking in the rear drivers side. Spent a few hour replacing my rear end links with Steeda adjustable end links as I originally thought that was the issue. Tore the thing apart after it didn't fix the issue and I think I found it...

    Hello everyone, so pretty much I’m having an issue with my lowering springs rubbing and popping. About five days ago I changed all my four shocks on my car since I’ve had my car now for eight years and my two front shocks started leaking. I went ahead and bought all four new oem Ford shocks and...

About two weeks pass and I've been...

    I bought some Bilstein B14 coils recently and after installing them I love the ride height for the front of the car, but the rear is still a little too high. I'm sure the rear suspension is similar to other adjustable aftermarket rear suspension for the st so maybe someone can answer my...

    I’m considering lowering my focus st on coilovers, and throwing some spacers on the stock wheels or buying new wheels. I want to go pretty low, about 2.5-3 inches lowered in the back and 2-2.5 inches lowered in the front. Does anyone have experience with lowering their focus this amount? Any...

    After a couple days of wrenching and working out clunks, (with help from a buddy and the use of a local vo-tech classes lift) got my set of BC’s on! Rear is sitting a little lower than the front but I’ll get her sitting level once everything settles in. First impressions are great. Car rides...
  10. Focus ST Suspension
    Hey I finally have enough to buy some suspension, but I’m having a hard time choosing. There’s 3 main requirements: improves handling in corners or during auto cross, rides nice for a daily, and is able to be adjusted to get nice fitment. The guy I bought the car from knows a lot of people with...

    Hey y'all, I got a suspension questions and I couldn't find similar forum threads I just purchased Bilstein B14 coilovers kit and adjustable end links for the front and rear of my 2015 focus st. Do I need to buy anything else to make the job easier or things I'll want to buy and replace or...

    Ok, so Im trying to put coilovers on my 2016 ST. I cant even remove my stock shocks cause: I get to the sway bar end link front side and for the life of me i have no clue how to remove it/the bracket. None of my wrenches will fit into that tiny space, and to top it off, I stripped the allen...

    I'm losing my mind. Bought my '18 ST1 new and I have had 5 alignments done to it. That's right, 5. I've only hit a gnarly pothole one time, around 15K miles, the car has never been quite right since. I took it in after that first pothole and the alignment was off, got it fixed up at the ford...

    Sadly, I moved to a city with MISERABLE street conditions. I'm considering getting rid of the car entirely because the potholes are so bad. I'm willing to sacrifice some serious style points so long as my 2015 ST can handle potholes a bit better. I am hoping to decrease wheel size to 17 inch for...

    Here's the breakdown on when I hear it: 1. Does not happen at idle, only when car is in motion 2. I have to be accelerating for it to happen 3. When I release my foot off the acceleration, the sound goes away. 4. Does not happen at high speeds, only in 1st, 2nd and sometimes 3rd gear 5. Always...

    40s SOUND CLIP LINKED AT BOTTOM OF PAGE Hello guys, I'm really frustrated with this issue I'm having and I hope one of you can shed some light and help. What the hell is this noise? I've had his for months now since mid covid madness. No one seems to know what it is as no mechanic was able to...

    I recently purchased a set of 245/40/18 Falken Azenis FK510 to put on my stock wheels. After, the car feels like it’s constantly driving on a wet road. Even after getting heat into the tires, the car feels boaty and like the rear end doesn’t want to follow the front. Any tips? Or did I make a...

    My little darling just ticked over 80k miles and I'm pretty happy with how little has gone wrong in the time I've owned it. All I've replaced because of failures has been a rear sway bar end link which happened at about 65k (good excuse to buy some performance replacements) and a rear wheel...

    I know there are a lot of threads discussing spring rates. However, I havent seen any mentioning the spring rates that I am seeing would be the best fit for me and I'm wondering exactly why that is. I havent had my car corner weighed, but I have seen corner weights for one that was pretty...
