After fitting the lowered MK2 focus springs to the front the weekend before, i took a trip to Birmingham and had the rear leaf springs lowered by a specialist (www.leafsprings.co.uk) on Saturday! One had got a fracture in it and needed to be completely replaced :roll: But they guys were very professional and i had a new one fitted for a great price in no time. We found out that the other one had already been replaced at some earlier point. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough, if you do not want to go down the axle flip route, this is the way to go! Had all new bushes, and rubber blocks fitted, as well as them being blasted off, and a satin black spray job to top them off.
Will post some pictures as soon as i have got them all off my phone.
Have a good week guys.

Some current pics after a weekend of adding bits, fixing bits and valeting :D Since October i have had the front lowered by 35mm on Apex mk1 Focus TDCI springs, had the rear leaf springs re-contoured by 2" (someone fill in the technical term!) Added the decals on the side, and yesterday fitted a pair of black front lights (kudos to Valetech) Also, replaced the front scuttle panel with one got from the scrappy for £5 - a blow over of satin black, and it looks brand new. I am getting my speedo binnacle serviced, so also got a temporary replacement from scrappy for £10! I will be glad to get mine back as this one is showing 308,000 miles!! :shock: :!:

More to come :D
