Suspension modifying

I know alot of you guys will be against modifying the suspension. But lets be honest. it really isnt low enough...

What can we do to slam it?

any ideas? is it possible without loosing all the fancy electronic adjustments.

What do you mean it isn't really low enough? What benefit do you get from having it lower? Not everyone really wants to have it 'slammed'.

Im not going to argue with someone on why or why not to lower, we all have our own preferences.

Mine will be lowered.

You can cut the springs... kidding.

On a serious note, you can wait for aftermarket springs to show up (specific to the RS) but there's a chance what's already on the market for the ST can work in the RS's factory coilover tower.

Unfortunately it's quite common for people to buy high performance cars like the Focus RS and stance them out, part of the whole stance scene is like that and I can see why.

Well the Focus RS Rallycross uses a SLA-type arrangement joined by 3-way adjustable Reiger dampers front and rear. Maybe you can find something similar to what they use?

For sure - and I have seen it. They take a performance car and turn it into a static model.
