Just lowered a Fiesta

My Friend Ashley was over today with her Fiesta and we put an Eibach kit on her...Looks and handles BETTER...

The rears were gravy. So easy to do. 2 bolts and done..Take your time getting the springs in the rubber perches just so.

The fronts weren't to bad, but the top three strut bolts? They are a little tight, but doable...Thank goodness for Snap-on ratcheting wrenches :)

MArigold ( Ashley's name for her Fiesta) is looking GOOD...

I noticed she got her windows tinted too!

Ashleys was still on stock shocks if I remember right, but the car was practically new when we did them.

When I get around to a Fiesta in my driveway ... I am going to look into some CoilOvers.

I want to make the Fiesta more of a menacing show ride to counter my SVTF that is set for straight Solo Racing.
