    Great write up Wes, and yes each item shown is available at 935 Motorsports.


    One thing to mention is that if you were to go with the AGX MR2 Front Strut, it would use a screwdriver to adjust instead of knob. This would allow you to adjust it still while in the CUSCO plate.

    The MR2 fronts are just a bit softer, but still very aggressive and much harder then the Tokicos.

    AGX does not have a slot, it has a flat-sided circular knob.

    Approximately a 1/8" D shaped shaft from what I can tell. If anyone has any ideas on waht to use I am all ears, I have been pulling the knobs off everything I see but no luck so far.

    When you say the mr2 fronts are just a bit softer, what are you comparing them too? It looks like you are saying they are much harder than the mk2 tokikos, but what are they softer than?

    Thanks

    front suspension

    I like the way you mounted the front coilovers....what is the ride height with this setup? What is the difference in the lowering amount if you install the coilovers without cutting the sleeves?

    I think it allows you about 3/4" with the full collars instead of the ones suited for stock perches.

    Wes, I am going to grind down the standard knobs so they will fit down in there and put a slot for a flat-head and some sort of directional marker as well... I'll let you know once I get it together or visually show you what I'm talking about next month.

    By the way, any autox's planned for the weekend of the FL meet? I might take you up on that co-drive offer.

    Good work. Ground Control is another source for coilover sleeves.

    I'm impressed.

    I just have a hatred of the Tokico brand name, after I wasted $200 on HP's. The Illuminas could be good. The best would probably be Koni.

    There is an autocross at Gainesville raceway on the 20th, the same day as the Meet :-( It was originally scheduled for the 13th but just got rescheduled. I will probably choose the autocross over the meet because I don't have to drive 6 hours to do that, I need the points, and gainesville raceway is such an awesome place. Plus i pretty much have to be there since I am the worker chief for gainesville events. You are still welcome to co drive if you decide to stay in town. Screw drag racing, lets have the meet in Gainesville LOL.

    As usual Wes, great work!

    On your coil over tops, you used the cut section of the stock upper mount...was this in the instructions for the QA1 coilovers? With my Ground Controls, I did not have to do that... To stop the strut from turning when tightening the strut nut I use a ground down 5/8" tappet wrench on the top of the strut shaft. Very narrow, but works well.

    I hear you on the adjustment! I can't just grind down the one that came with my Koni's because it's a multi piece plastic jobby. I was just going to get some metal and make a tool. I guess one could just take an appropriately sized bolt and cut a channel on the end. That'd work...

    So what are your impressions of the Focus shocks? And your rear springs are Eibachs still right?
