We have had a couple customers inquire about lowering their Hybrid and if the drop would be even due to their extra weight. We're sure the Eibach springs provide this even drop to the Hybrid owners but we need some pictures to show people when they ask. If anyone is interested in purchasing a set, I am willing to sell them at a discounted price and will guarantee that they work properly or you get your money back. In return, we just need some pictures of before/after drop. Let me know if you are interested.

Hey. If you called and didn't get an answer did you leave a message? All messages are returned. And emails are returned 24/7. Anyway, the Eibachs and H&R's definitely fit the Hybrid and work great. Here is a picture of a lowered Hybrid on Eibachs.

You didn't call us because I am the only person that answers the phone(and the emails) and I would not have told you that. Everything we offer(it all fits the Hybrid) is right here. http://cd3performanc...FF13-Suspension. I personally recommend these http://cd3performanc...ord-Lincoln-MKZ

I apologize, you are correct I didn't call. My mistake. I just checked who I called and it was Steeda performance. For some reason I thought it was your company.

Yea that sounds like something Steeda would say. That's who I figured you talked to.

Unfortunately not on any of the car parts. Eibach has a 10% Holiday mail in rebate on springs until the end of this month but that is about it. You can find the rebate for here ---> http://performance-s...ebate_2013_page

Why do you recommend the HR over the Eibach?  

 

I am looking to close the fender well gap with springs and adding 245/35/20 +38 on my 14 Fusion HyTi.  Does that change your recommendation?

I only recommended the AWD H&R springs because they were made for the slightly heavier car so it's closer to the weight of the Hybrid. But either spring will work fine. I would still tell you to get the same springs.

I wonder if anyone has come forward and asked to have their cars raised! In northern zones we get white stuff called ice after a while. Ice versus valance means $$$ and the valance loses.
Coming into my driveway I scraped the ice. I was lucky as it could have been worse.

Come to think of it we have different adjustable suspension settings for sport, highway etc. on many cars to let the driver get more enjoyment out of it. GM came along with Mag Ride that adjusted the shocks and I think it was the Corvette that had them first and then Caddy.

 

Regardless, wouldn't it be nice if we had a summer and winter setting for the cars? Summer would lower it for better air flow and winter would raise it for those times when faced with snow or ice on the roads. Much better to drive over than through it. Likely a hydraulic air suspension of some sort, like the knee buses that they have for handicapped folks that lower to allow wheelchairs. Might be problem prone in really cold weather, but would sure make it easier getting around in winter. :idea:

Active suspension is costly, Mercedes has something like that too, one strut alone is over $1500 to replace. They work quite well when they are working.

So - How is the ride? I have 19" Ford Mondeo wheels like found on the Road and Track ST Mock Up - My wheel wells are full - does anyone have a clearance measurement? See pictures from my profile to gain your response. I am in if its a 1" drop - No Tow Issues and it rides better... Now, a little to floaty for me - but it would be a nice component for my machine.

Everyone who has purchased lowering springs for these cars seems to love the ride so far. I know what your car looks like. I saw pictures of it a long time ago and thought it was very well done. I don't have clearance measurements but you should be perfectly fine with the H&R awd springs. It really is only a 1 inch drop. Nobody has had any clearance issues no matter the size of their wheels and weight of their car. There have also been no reported camber issues or premature wear of any type once an alignment is done after lowering. We stand by what we sell so if you have any issues you can return the springs.

Talisman,

 

If you lower the car with stiffer springs and keep the stock shocks, won't the stock shocks wear out very quickly in like 6 months?

 

Thanks.

Not with the current springs available for the Fusion. They were designed to work with the stock shocks. They won't wear out any quicker than normal.

What would you recommend for Fusion Energi which is about 300lbs heavier? My goal is to reduce the bouncy ride. This is a commute car.
