Nice.

I need to throw my stock 17s back on and see where I'm sitting with an OE diameter tire -.-

Wasn't one of those cars on Brocks once?

I would'nt consider that 'tucked'. Yes, its lowered. But tucked its not...Good looking stance either way tho...

Yeah, 3.5-4" tucks, 1.75 is standard issue 'drop'.

They look like Volk CE28/9N's, but that's a different centre cap. Not sure.

Hopefully this link works, but for a day back in 2002, I rolled with a hardcore rake. And trust me, the fronts were tucking. 16x7 40mm et wheels with stock 205/50-16 Firestones.

IMO, too much "Tuck" looks like a giant stepped on their Hot Wheels car, screwing it's axles. ;)
A little is fine, but you have to remember... This is NOT a Honda.
The fenders are different, the geometry is different, etc. Without bags and fender work, you can't just make it into a different car.
That VW above might look pretty good once they finish it and paint it, but the Focus is not a VW either.
If you want to take it to the bumpstops, bags are about all you can do if you ever intend to drive the car.
Jinstall has about as low as you can go without bags, and his is with some custom cutting, and his travel is pretty limited.

^^^ Most VWs at least raise the towers and or notch the frame. Not many that don't tuck particularly with coils and especially to that extent. To steal from Mitch, this isn't a plug and play suspension. Trimming fender walls and revised control arms is fairly common. VWs, Hondas, Minis doesn't matter they aren't "made" to sit like this.

o2 those are some pretty good examples. Here's one I found from an old thread on here. No clue what setup this is though.


Focus Central Coilovers with Focus Central Control arms. This was with it dropped ALL The way, and would be HORRIBLE to drive on though.
