    With the BCs I am hoping to give it a little evil-looking rake, so probably drop the front an inch or a little more, give it some street friendly camber, and drop the rear not as much.

    I would like to get in on this but it would have to be at the group buy price. You would only need one more if I join in to hit the magic number?

    That's right -- buy now and get your refund after the next buyer places their order! ;)

    All the orders have shipped! Took a while to get all the parts lined up, the correct rear springs (length, rate). At any rate, if anyone has any questions call the shop during your install.

    1. REMEMBER TO SET THE VALVING TO FULL SOFT BEFORE INSTALLING, THEN GO +5 FRONT, +6 REAR
    2. REAR RUBBER ISOLATOR GOES ON TOP OF REAR SPRING
    3. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE OEM DAMPENER ON THE FRONT SHOCKS (ALUMINUM BOX). ITS NOT REQ

    Thanks for the tips! Also, I looked inside the "OEM dampener". I originally thought it was some kind of control box for the ABS/torque vectoring with carefully concealed wires! Under inspection it's obviously a mass dampener. I guess they had some kind of weird NVH issue at some point. More weight saved! ;)

    My '12 Focus has the same sort of mass dampener on the front struts. Almost seems like standard procedure for Ford now.

    Dude thats a super easy install since the fronts have top mounts on them already. No spring compressor needed, just undo three nuts up top, two bolts on bottom and out.

    The rear was a 10mm up top (two nuts) then the bottom bolt.

    Two hours even in your garage. Then off to the alignment shop.

    Thanks mosh. I was going to watch that install video posted by Joe@2J also. Encouraging to know it's that easy. I also want to work up some better weather/grit proofing for these units ... or am I just being anal?? Seems to me that driving a setup like this with snow and road salt is just asking for problems when you go to adjust things. Hate for these pretty things to get all crusty.

    Since there's no adjustment in the rear, I should be able to get it aligned in my driveway pretty easily with old school strings and tape measures :) I will probably do that anyway and then maybe have the shop confirm my settings.

    I wish I had a place to install my own coils instead of paying someone to do it :(

    Oh you have to undo the end links on the swaybar too from where they attatch to the strut. (one bolt each side on the front) then just make sure your ABS sensor wire is out of the way.
    Its a pretty easy job though. Just unbolt the old parts and bolt the new ones on.
