    With the Fiesta Movement ST, I had posted a picture of the suspension with the wheels removed and the car on jack-stands. That was met with a lot of emails saying no more taking the wheels off or doing any work on the car. For me, taking wheels off is a pretty standard thing to do.

    yep, taking the car apart wasn't well received. I wanted to get measurements and do a number of videos talking about what is different about the ST suspension versus the regular car. It wasn't worth the hassle that would have come from it.

    that happened back in early July after going to the track. I took the wheels off to bleed the brakes, inspect the pads, and make sure everything was ok after a proper track thrashing. I did stop taking pictures of a lot of stuff as the program went on since I did not want to get a bunch of angry emails. Instead of the suspension review video, I got a chance to meet with Tim Smith and do the videos on the development.

    So go out and buy your new car and continue your videos.

    One guy with an ST did buy a set to try to fit them, have not heard from him yet.

    They are gone, I got the last sets they had and they were sold before they even arrived at our warehouse.

    Correct.

    They fit fine ;) Spring rate is only 100lbs more than stock, so not much stiffer ride than the stock set up but with a little less bounciness as the Bilstein's have better dampening control. There is still a little bounce in the rear at 80+ on uneven road surfaces, which alot of it has to do with the short wheelbase. But, over all much better control than stock with the added height control and ability to corner weight.

    Alignment right now is at 1.5' up front which is the least it would go without camber bolts. I will get them as on the street I want to run 1'.

    Install w/ alignment was 3ish hours. We weren't in a hurry and did a corner at a time. With two people we coulda had one do the front while the did the rear shocks...

    These are a direct bolt on.

    No install issues at all (other than camber in the front). But, that was semi-expected as the knuckle has more camber built into it than a normal Fiesta.

    Ordered H&R camber bolts this AM (p/n TC212) to dial out that last .5'

    Sure would have been nice if FRPP knew these fit properly, I know a couple guys passed on them because we were told they wouldn't work.

    The car looks great!
