Here are a few picture from the Hybrid Test Fit we had a couple months ago now. Customer stated that he was extremely happy with the result so far. This is a pretty moderate drop with the Eibachs. For a slightly lower drop, the H&R springs should do the job but we unfortunately do not have pictures of that drop yet. No camber issues or premature shock wear with either springs. Alignment is recommended after install. You can find all the available springs here...  http://cd3performanc...FF13-Suspension

I think this looks really good lowered. IMHO the one area where the Fusion kinda betrays its SUV-centric CD4 underpinnings is in how tall the car is. The black wheels are a bit of a contrast shock for me, but it's your money, your ride!

I'd rather you tell me something I already know 1,000 times, than not tell me something I don't know once.

Nice pics. Thanks for posting.

When I look at my Fusion from the front I am always struck by how low it seems from that view. 

Did new tires get installed with those wheels?

I am not 100% sure on the wheel/tire setup as this is a customer car and they took the pics after the install. Sorry about that.

Hard to tell without a before shot with those wheels. I bet that front makes more noise now when going over rises. Mine sure does, and its stock.   The biggest question though, did it improve handling?

Why would the front make more noise? The drop is about 1 inch. It's the same as the drops on the Non Hybrid models. If you go to the website and look at the springs you can see a before and after picture of the Eibach drop. Also, yes it does improve handling. Shocks are still the same so it's not a drastic improvement but you will have stiffer springs so less body movement keeping the car flatter and the rubber in contact with the road better.

It would make more noise by scraping the front end more easily on steep rises.

Mine already does it on my driveway.

Clearly then this mod isn't for you!  I have scraped the back a couple of times but not the front yet. All that 'air control' stuff hangs pretty low.

I have scraped the front a few times too, usually where the road dips at a sharp angle into a driveway. Never scraped the back though, maybe you should remove those bodies from your trunk. I think what scrapes are the air dams in front of the tires and not the bumper itself.

My car is super low in the front. Much lower than the 2G Fusions. This is all just part of low life. Gotta learn to be more evasive around obstacles and approach everything at an angle lol.

 

The Eibachs for the Fusion are a very minimal drop though. Driving habits shouldn't have to change much.

I've got them evenly distributed, so that shouldn't be much of an issue really. Say, how did you know about them?  Can I get your address and maybe stop by for a 'talk' with some friends?
