Well, after 2+ years of owning my car, I finally got it lowered with the help of Mike (91Sleeper) and Eric (Neuspeedescort).

It may not look that low...because its not...thats the highest position on the coilovers, but I can't go any lower until I roll the fenders. I think i have about another 2.5" or so I can go once thats done.

Here's a teaser, I'll get more pics once I find the ride height I'm looking for.

thanks...I'm glad I did it..3 of my 4 struts were blown and I didn't even know it. the one strut that wasn't blown seemed newer than the rest and it didn't come off like the others.

I'm running 205/40/17's on there. I can't even get my finger between the tire and the fender lip, its that close. Why would you need camber plates? I haven't heard of anyone needing those.

Yeah, Marclar, it would look good with my trophy (Best Escort-Stock Class) but I think a GTX under the hood would look even better. :lol:

You shouldn't need camber plates. You can machine your own if you want though. I had some on my EGT and they were great for race day tuning and the like.

I'd ditch that black hood or get it painted. Black hoods on non-black cars just look bad. Other than that, it looks pretty sweet. Can't wait to see it with the fenders cleaned up.

Okay, fenders have been rolled. I took some shots tonight. Let me know what you think.







Just in case you're wondering, YES I meant for the pic to look like this:

Thanks, I took pictures in two different parking garages...one had that orangish light, but I like this one because of the clean white light they had in their garage.

Here's a pic from the other garage:

Well, Skuce...I have the spring collars down all the way till they bump the spring perches...the only way to go lower would be to cut the perches as far as I can tell.

Secondly, they are 17" ADR Sokudos in Gunmetal...if you decide to get some, I'd go for GunBlack instead...ADR didn't offer that color when I first bought mine, I guess.
