    If so, we'd love to see pics. And, be sure to let us know what brand you're running.

    H&R coilovers, set full low for summer and have loved every minute since the purchase

    Everyone comments on how comfortable the ride is still too. Good buy since its a DD for those worried about neck breaking bumps, there are only neck breaking corners now

    I was pleasantly surprised with the ride quality. Quick question for you, what did you torque the top nut on the rear struts to?

    Til they were tight according to my impact which makes 90ft-lbs, they usually bottom out on the strut mount. One of my bearings did split open when I set it down so had to repack with grease and clean dirt off some ball bearings. That sucked

    Shit 90?! Everyone was telling me to go 30. I heard any more than that would snap it off. No wonder it got loose.....

    90 is what's advertised. Who knows if it did 90, I didn't check with my tq wrench and didn't have any specs. I know the impact pulled it of without to much hassle and in reverse its a beast tho

    I find when the strut bearing isn't tight enough you will result in a clunk as per my first install of a pro kit in 07 on my other focus

    Yep, that's what alerted me to the issue; the clunking. The 2006 suspension install had a lot bigger nuts (ha ha ha) which to me seemed like a better design. The opening for that top nut on the ST is microscopic.

    Our line of Mk3 Focus ST coilovers (three different versions - street, track, & race) made exclusively for us by Eibach are almost ready for purchase :)
