FORD FOCUS Front suspension TSB (related to the RMM TSB)

Hey all Happy Turkey Day I brought my ST for my RMM TSB diagnosis the other day. When I came back for the car my service advisor said they would order the parts for the RMM TSB but also mentioned a suspension TSBcampaign that would further reduce wheel hop. Ive been poking around the forums and web but cant seem to find anything related. Any thoughts I realize that this community is the obvious authorityexperts not the dealerships.

Im just going to change the suspension myself unless there are other changes like A arms. Sent from my Galaxy S3.

Anyone have any input Regards Phil

FORD FOCUS Ive got a problem with front end noise after COBB springs install

I realize its not easy to diagnos a problem on the forum but I just had my springs installed yesterday and today i notice a mild grinding or rubbing sound when i turn right. The sound is like a mild sqeekish grinding rubbing type sound. I went over a speed bump and heard a pop. I thought it might have been a non secured plastic speed bump that flapped when I went over it. Any idea what could make that

Originally Posted by armadaskier As far as I know the only lowering kit that includes new bump stops is the Eibach kit. My Steeda kit did not include them. I had a few squeaks after I installed my Steeda springs but it went away after about 25 miles The Cobb springs do come with new bump stops.

FORD FOCUS Eibach SportlinesFront and Back Anti - Roll Bars

Ok guys so I installed my sportlines and anti roll bars this weekend Wow it is unbelievable the difference it made. The car feels stable now. More connected to the ground if you will. I always hated when I would shift with the stock suspension or brake and you can feel the whole car nose dive. Not anymore The car looks amazing now and will look even better when these wheels and tires come in today

Looks good Were twins (OW ST yellow fogs red rally armors) haha Did you have a chance to drive in between the springs install and roll bars

FORD FOCUS What wheels to get for next summer Soooo confusing...help

Picking out wheels for the stock tires for next summer is going to be tough Wheels should be 18 x 8 but many websites give you 18 x 7.5 but at least there are quite a few 18 x 8s. Now the bolt pattern I am sure must 5x108 or it just wont work. But what about offset and how close does it have to be Many of the wheels have less the 55 offset of the stock rims and many are in the 40s somewhere. I know

by buzzard I am most concerned with using an offset that is not 55...most seem to be in the 40 some range and wanted to know how much variance is too much as far a clearance issues go I bought winter tires and have them on my stock rims so now I just need to look for options for the Eagle F1s in the summer time. There is another thing to consider with a wheel offset change Scrub Radius. I know ford

FORD FOCUS Mountune sport springs and garageline 20mm spacers

For my birthday back in November wife had gotten me some Rally armor mud flaps. Also for Christmas she had gotten me some mountune sport springs. I finally got around to having them installed yesterday. I was waiting to get some Bilstein sport shocks and struts but decided to hold off and just run the OEMs until they go junk. I also went ahead and ordered some garageline 20mm spacers all around to

I was waiting to get some Bilstein sport shocks and struts but decided to hold off and just run the OEMs until they go junk. I also went ahead and ordered some garageline 20mm spacers all around to put on while the wheels were off made it look much better and aggressive I think. Ordered the Mountune exhaust that came out this past Monday and waiting for it to arrive. Going to remove the focus

FORD FOCUS Whiteline anti lift kit

Anyone try these out or have any input I know its supposed to help the car rotate and reduce wheel spin are these a track only item Will you see increased tire wear and torque steer

Tire wear should not be too much of a concern. Especially if you are not lowered and cambertoe isnt off too much from the WALK. Toe is the only thing adjustable from factory. A great starting point is 0 degrees all around. Thats actually not too far from factory specs. Toe is the real tire killer. 0 toe is completely fine. Camber for example is more forgiving before it starts to showing wear. I would

We have these back in stock if youre interested and they ship FAST Whiteline Anti Lift front Inner Lower Rear Control arm Bushing Many Makes (inc. 2013-2014 focus ST) KCA428 at RallySportDirect.com Corby

Ive done these on literally dozens of Subarus from pure street cars to track cars. No noticeable increase in tire wear or any ill effects at all (NVH etc.). It really wakes up the slow-ass steering on a Subaru so Id be interested to see if it made the rather quick steering in the ST darty at all. Never done them on a FWD platform however but I find it likely that itd make an already fun car a bit moreso.

FORD FOCUS calling guys with coilovers and regular lowering springs help me decide

So I am trying to weigh my options on my stance My perfect stance is wheel wells perfectly level with the tops of the tires on all 4 corners but none of the available springs do this they all leave a small amount of wheel well gap all around besides the h&Rs that seem to eliminate it completely in the rear but leave to much gap in front. The best I see right now is the steeda springs wheel well gaps

Originally Posted by yellowfocusstman I love my H&R springs. Youre right about the gap in front though. Another member cut the dead coil off his fronts and he said it dropped it perfectly with no adverse effects on handling. I wont be doing this though.

FORD FOCUS Installing Cobb springs and hit a snag

So I am installing my Cobb springs following their instructions and hit a snag. I am Trying to take off the bracket for the front sway bar and bolt is free spinning. Any ideas Now I did only have the front right up and not both front tires if that makes a difference at all.

The fronts are on the Shock. The rear is just an outer unit on the arm. I havent modified those yet. I was just testing some Swift Springs on the front and the rears are due to arrive for testing sometime this month from Japan.

FORD FOCUS Lowering springs VS Coilovers

I have had a car before that was lowered with lowering springs and it rode fine to me. I do not plan on tracking my ST that much especially since I will be deploying for a year soon but that makes me wonder if I should try coilovers in this car or not. I plan on lowering it anyways but Im just no sure if coilovers are needed for me since I dont plan on doing a lot of track time. To anyone that has

It really depends on what you want to do with the car. I will be tracking and using the stock shocks with some Swift Springs that Im currently testing for them. I will be also using a front upper camber plate and rear adjustable camber arms. At my old job we would dyno a number of oem shocks and found the quality of the valving of those shocks to be better than many budget coilovers like Megan for

FORD FOCUS Lowering Springs Effecting Handling

Does anyone who has installed lowering springs feel that they effected the neutral handling that these cars already have or improve it

I saw armadaskiers alignment sheet post lowering spring install and the cambercaster looked pretty unaffected which means the curve is pretty good. Was within spec. The only adjustment needed was toe so I would venture to say that you will only see improvement due to lower roll center. The only way I can see a lowering spring affecting handling negatively on this car is if they were to give a weight jacking effect and change the front-rear bias.

When we first

Ok so after we put the springs on we needed to check the alignment. So we took it to the shop and had them check it out for us. Everything was within factory spec other than the toe in on the front. No problem we got that fixed. It was toed in 316 on the passenger side and 116 on the drivers side. Honestly I expected it to be more out of alignment. One thing the guy aligning it said was we should get

FORD FOCUS Steeda and Bilsteins installed with some 1520 Garagelines

Installed some Steeda springs with Bilstein Sports yesterday finished it up with Steeda rear sway bar and mounted a set of GarageLine 1520 spacers. My face still hurts a bit from the smile during the backroad driving to seat the springs a bit and get everything settled down. Rear springs didnt set the way I had hoped initially and actually scared me when I set it down and it looked like a 4x4 but after

Been thinking for a long time about doing eibach prokitbut the steeda springs are looking better everytime i see your car.

You dont need any additional parts with the sportlines. The camber is still in spec in front with them and the rear barely changed. You would have to go a lot lower then sportlines in back to need those camber arms. I think sone people just like to buy parts they dont need just to say they have them. A little more nagative camber then stock is actually good for handling. The extra degree or so these give you is well within spec.

So been savin in the old cookie jar for a couple of months and now I am ready to put 35s on my stock 2008 STX 4x4 rims will a 2.5 in leveling kit do the job or do I need a 2.5 in suspension lift to make it look a little less crampedawkard Any thoughts would be awesome pics def wouldnt hurt either thanks for all your help guys J Btw-I plan on getting my stock rims powder-coated black in order to save a little dough

Btw there is a difference between a lift kit and a leveling kit although leveling kits may be similar its really only a spacer for the spring and extension for the strut on the front end and it really only focuses on the front

FORD 2006 raptor possible

hey dudes i dont own a raptor just a 2006 supercab 4x4. i cant afford a new raptor since they go for 65-73000 cdn here in canada. but i do need more performance out of my 2006 4x4 for hunting in deep snow quadding mudding etc. just putting a leveling kit on for the front and some 35s will help immensely but if i can upgrade to raptor parts even better. So im wondering can i buy oem RAPTOR parts like

as well as the body parts but you will have to swap the entire doghouse (front end body parts). Im on my phone right now but there are several guys that have installed Raptor parts on the previous gen F150. Youll get much more capability by using aftermarket gear because of length of travel and strength. Having said that I noticed you didnt mention high speed runs off road - thats the primary focus

PONTIAC GTO Motorweek

Since no one has yet to mention the show I will say my wife and I thought that Motorweek gave the 05 a pretty good report. Overall nothing bad and mostly positive words. Better than we expected though they did mention the 17 wheels being small. But the power really impressed them and the handling was good. It was encouraging to see a report that didnt put the car down.

Here is the transcipt from the show. Pretty decent review. 2005 Pontiac GTO Program 2423 American muscle cars are back in style but while the ford Mustang GT is hot Pontiacs reborn GTO has been a showroom dud mostly because of its slick but rather bland styling. But take the GTO to the racetrack and you quickly learn that you cant judge a book by its cover. The GTO is an awesome performer made even
