Whether I want to do anything or not.... I'm stuck at stock height if I want to get in and out of my driveway.

I'm sticking with stock for now. I do prefer coilovers but hate losing the adjustable suspension capabilities.

I have been scouring the internet to see which way I want to go.

The Mountune springs seem to be very conservative in the drop in all pictures I've seen aside from their own in house car.

H&R look great on some cars, but still a little high in the rear on others...as do the Eibach Pro Kit.

I was thinking of ordering the Pumaspeed springs, but that will be pricey coming directly from the UK.

The only other option I am curious about is the Whiteline springs, but I haven't found one photo of a RS with them equipped. I may reach out to Eibach and see if they eventually release a Sportline edition.

For now, I will be stalking all forums and threads until I can make up my mind.

Mountune and Pumaspeed springs are basically rebadged Eibach springs.

I think the Pumaspeed might look a bit lower due to the larger wheels in their photos.

Aren't they rebadged with different specs though? I read Mountune are more conservative than the standard Eibach Pro Kit while Pumaspeed are more aggressive.

You're right they are different specs. I was just commenting that with the larger wheels it might look even more lowered than if you were on the stock wheels.

The .08" claimed on the Eibach is a bit conservative, mine actually went down nearly an inch in both front and rear.

I just realized I have your car saved as reference of a perfect drop. I'm not sure why I find others that don't look the same with Eibachs though.

I'm very close to going with your setup and I appreciate your input and installation tips.

I don't think I've ever seen any Focus with Whiteline springs and I've owned three generations of Focus.

The only other option I am curious about is the Whiteline springs, but I haven't found one photo of a RS with them equipped.

Thanks, it could be because of the wider wheels that I'm on as well.
