Focus ST Eibach Sportline Coil Springs Installation 2013
http://www.cjponyparts.com/eibach-coil-spring-sportline-set-st-focus-2013-2 014/p/414035/ Eibach's Sportline Coil Spring Set will equip your 2013 Focus ST with race car like handling for maximum street performance. With Sportline Coil Springs, you will achieve the lowest possible drop, yet maintaining the exceptional ride quality you expect from Eibach. You will be able to stop quicker, corner faster, gain better MPG, and dramatically reduce squat during acceleration. For installation, you'll first access and loosen the strut tower. Then, remove the wheel and disconnect and remove the strut, following Bill's instructions in the install video. After this, you'll disassemble the strut, removing the original spring and spring dust boots. Then, install the new Eibach spring and dust boot on the spring, along with the bump stops included in the set. Return the strut to your Focus and reinstall all bolts and brackets, reconnect the sway bar and ABS sensor, and then repeat this process on the other side. Resecure your wheels and reassemble your strut tower and cowl. Next, you'll work on your rear springs, which are a lot less involved. Remove the bolt pointed out by Bill, which holds the perch in place, allowing you to access the rear spring. Remove the spring and bump stop, and then secure the new bump stop and new Eibach spring (While we have had no problem with the numb stop mounted as shown, Eibach recommends installing the numb stop on the shock). Next, return the perch and bolt and then complete this process on the other side. Total installation takes around three hours.

BMW E30 Strut Housing Shortening Tutorial + Ground Control Coilover Build
This is a video tutorial on how to properly shorten your E30 front strut housings to allow use of a shorter shock and how to assemble the Ground Control Coilover Conversion kit once the housings are shortened. The work was performed on my 1991 BMW 318is and my setup is as follows: - Ground Control Coilover Conversion Kit - spring rates: 440f/650r - Bilstein HD front shock inserts for a 325ix model E30 - 82-02 Camaro KYB Gas-A-Just shock for the rear (not mentioned in video) This video is just a general outline, your process may vary a bit depending on what tools, parts or coilover setup you use. *Work at your own risk. I am not responsible for any injuries or damaged parts/tools if you decide to follow my tutorial, I am simply providing some helpful tips.* Text from the video: Step 1: Begin by removing both front strut assemblies (not every step is shown in this video) Step 2: Once the strut assembly is out, remove the original top hats, springs and strut inserts. Use a spring compressor to perform this. Work at your own risk. Step 3: Once everything is removed and the strut housing is bare, the next step is to remove the original spring perch. Use your own preferred method to do this. In my case, I used an angle grinder and cutoff wheel. Cut around the top of the weld where the spring perch is welded to the strut housing. Step 4: Now it is time to cut the strut housing. Again, use your own preferred method to do so, just make sure the cut is straight and perfectly perpendicular to the strut tube to ensure that it doesn't have any slight bends or angles when everything is welded up. Otherwise, camber will be affected and the strut insert will not slide into the strut housing. Step 5: Start your first cut just under the weld from the original spring perch. I used a band saw. I made sure everything was level and perpendicular and made my first cut. Step 6: Now that the strut housing is cut into two pieces, it is time to make the second cut. This cut will determine how much you are shortening the strut housing by. Measure from where you just cut towards the top of the housing (threaded section). It is recommended to not cut any more than 2". Make sure you do not cut into the threaded section of the housing. I cut out 2". Note: The next clip shows what your strut housing should look like before and after making both cuts. I accidentally have the middle section flipped, which could cause confusion. This is the section that will be thrown away anyways. Step 7: Now you are ready to weld. Prepare the end areas for welding and use welding magnets to keep everything perfectly positioned. Keep a small gap between the ends for the new metal to fill. The size of the gap should be the same size as the thickness of the metal of the strut housing. Step 8: I would recommend MIG or TIG welding. When MIG welding, incorporate sheilding gas rather than using flux core wire. This will yeild much cleaner welds and better control. If you are ill-equipped or not comfortable with welding, have a professional weld everything up for you. Start off with a few tack welds and then weld the rest together all the way around. Step 8: Once everything is welded up, grind the welds down so they are flush with the rest of the strut housing. I recommend using an angle grinder with flap disk. Step 9: Now it is time to weld on the supplied adjuster perch. Use the threaded spring adjuster sleeve as a guide. Situate it so that the top of the adjuster sleeve is flush with the top of the strut housing as it sits on the perch. Make sure the flat area of the new perch is facing out towards the wheel. Start off by making a few tack welds and then weld the rest. Only weld on the bottom of the perch. Step 10: This is how the strut housings should look once complete. Prep and paint to desired color. Do not leave any bare metal unpainted, it will rust over time. Step 11: Once painted, you are ready to assemble the coilovers. Start off by putting two supplied O-ring's around the top of the strut housing to ensure a snug fit for the adjuster sleeve. Leave roughly a 1" gap between O-ring's. Install threaded adjuster sleeve. Step 12: The next step depends on how much you shortened your housings by and your strut insert choice. You want to be able to tighten the insert down snugly with the collar nut. In my case, I had to make a 1.25" spacer out of metal tubing to achieve this. Step 13: Once the strut insert is in place, install the collar nut and tighten it down. You will either need to buy or make a tool to tighten it. Step 14: Install the spring adjuster followed by the spring itself. Step 15: After the spring is in place, install the supplied top spring plate followed by the original top hat (or whichever top hat you decide to run). Step 16: Double check to make sure everything is tightened to spec. Now your new coilovers are complete and ready to install!

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In Part-2 of this two part series, we will replace the rear shock and spring. See Part- for the front shock/spring/strut replacement. The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if desired). PARTS USED: • New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.) • New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto, Eibach, etc.) • New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads, etc.) • New upper strut and shock mounts • New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required) • Rear shock mount reinforcing plates TOOLS USED: • Bentley Repair Manual • BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set • 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions • 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use) • 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set • Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers PROCEDURE: REAR (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but the E36 3-series uses the same steps and procedures): 1) Safely raise the rear of car, with suspension hanging. 2) Remove the wheels. 3) Place a jack under the lower shock mount eye or the wheel hub assembly. Slightly raise the suspension (just enough to remove the downward tension on the shock). 4) Remove the lower shock mount bolt. 5) Lower the jack and allow the suspension to hang free. 6) Remove the trunk side trim panel to access the upper shock mount. 7) Remove the two 13mm nuts from the upper shock mount, at the top of the shock tower. 8) Lower the shock out of the vehicle. 9) Assemble the new shock with new compression bumper, dust tube and upper mount. Be sure to re-use the large lower and upper washers for the upper mount. These washers must cup away from the mount. lower washer cups downward and upper washer cups upward. 10) If the spring is being replaced, it can be removed BEFORE re-installing the shock. Have a helper pull downward on the wheel hub assembly and pull the spring out from between the chassis and the upper control arm. 11) Using new upper and lower spring pads, install the new spring in the same manner as the original was removed. Install the new spring pads, then install the spring. 12) Install the new shock. Place a new shock mount gasket on the shock mount and insert the assembly up into the shock tower. If installing a shock mount reinforcement plate, place the plate over the two shock mount studs, on top of the shock tower, before installing the two nuts. Install the two nuts. Install the trunk trim panel. 13) Install the lower shock mount bolt. Be sure to install the washer on the bolt before installing the bolt. Use the jack to raise the suspension assembly to align the lower shock mount with the hub mounting point, so the bolt can be inserted and threaded. Tighten the bolt. 14) Repeat for the other side. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Replacing struts
Struts can sometimes be a little scary. That is unless you have the right equipment. They are really pretty simple for the most part. However be sure to use a spring compressor. Here is an example on a Honda. Other vehicles will be basically the same
