Well, i'm quite unhappy that you didn't like your setup, because a little bit of Euro rake is exactly what works for your car.

If you cut a coil out of the rear helper springs, it should put you where you want to be.

With that said;

The car looked absolutely perfect as it was, just add some camber adjustment and some rolled fenders and it would have been perfect.

sigh.

I tuck on 17's, the lip of the 17's is actually at the finder lip with no rubbing issues. It has been like that since 2001.

just remove the helper spring completely from the coils and you can take out the rear perch as well to get a little lower

or you can call up Koni and get some custom shortened shocks for the rear

This is what I call 'tuck'.


But I've honestly not seen too many Focus' with a tucked stance. Its fairly rare. But....heres acouple anyway...


When Davor owned my wagon, he was tucking the rear tires on his setup...


Then this was on FJ here, I believe it was on bags...could still be around...



And then you've got this...

Yeah. Its a VW. All the explanation you need...LMAO


But the front turrets were cut out, and rewelded inorder to achieve the look, and then the inner fender wells were cut out so you can clear the metal to turn...

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.

This is how low my car could go with GC Coils.



Like you, even with higher (45mm) offset wheels, it rubbed like crazy. This was with no negative camber dialed in though, some LCR plates would've helped immensely.

Those are low, but honestly in the stance of 'tuck', the letters on the tires should be hidden by the arches. The tire tucks into the fender.

The pic above is a 4" drop approx. It's just not that easy to tuck tire on a Focus. Not many suspensions will go lower than that, and you'll almost have to have 17" or bigger rims.
