I just got my H&R lowering kit, i havent put it on yet...waiting for the weather to get better. But i was wondering if anyone has lowered a 2010 yet with the 1.6 Front, 1.9 Rear lowering kit and if there is anything i need to know before i do it?

Thanks.

Lowered Fusions look great, you're gonna love it. Post up a pic when it's done.

There are quite a few lowered Gen2's, check out fordfusionclub . com, a lot of modding going on over there.

Hello Pcran,

Yes, I've lowered my 2010 Fusion Hybrid.

I used the KW series 2 "coil overs" and had some difficulties as most of the kits aren't made for the extra weight of the hybrid. Because of that, I ended up using the rear springs from the Eibach kit. Eibach springs have a bit higher spring rate, and can handle more weight. They are also a taller spring, so I was able to get the correct drop that I wanted. Unfortunately I also had to machine larger spring perches as the Eibach springs are also a larger diameter. In addition have installed front and rear sway bars, and front upper strut brace to stiffen the chassis up a bit.

Hope yours turns out nicely.

Got my H&R springs from CD3 in 2 days and installed over the weekend. The drop is aggressive, looks great, and the ride is way more compliant than any of my Eibach setups I've used in the past. It is not much different than stock but the handling has improved dramatically. The stock springs were monsters - dont think I've seen that much disparity in my previous stock/Eibach comparisons. Seriously considering grinding the positioning tab on the front shocks to even up the stance with the slightly lower rear.

Pix to follow.
