Pulled my struts off and will need to modify the upper spring perch and the upper nut for the Godfrey plates. This is because the diameter of the XR strut rod is smaller than the VW strut rod.

Focus wheels are 17x7 and in good condition, no curb rash or anything like that. They include the tires and I think they are in usable condition. They are an off brand tire, don't remember who's though. Selling these for a buddy.

Re: Parts for sale - Possible Carlise Delivery

I don't remember the offsets, just look on Ebay for them.

Didn't modify the wheel wells so they rubbed all the time which is way I got rid of them
