For that much money one is better off buying the MeisterR’s . Same price and a much more proven suspension for our cars. Has one BTC championships. If I was going to do it again I would probably get the MeisterR’s myself.

P.S. Fixed spring heights are fine if you like them suck if you don’t. Lol I am not a fan of Eibach springs out of first hand experience as well.
Well, damn, didn't know they made them for our car, pretty cool and they look great! But as far as the Eibach's, just saying they are a good suspension option without spending a whole lot... they drop a good 1.1" so they definitely are about the very edge of almost too low but the ride is fantastic... and of course everyone has to decide for themselves, but if you daily far more than you race I don't see why you should punish yourself with such a harsh and stiff ride when there is some suspension travel available to be used and still handle even a little better than stock too... but the Eibach do indeed match really well with '17+ stock shocks/struts, some harsh comparison were made when matched to the older part number shocks/struts that are too stiff... but I guess some people would rather stay harsh for the times they race, or even around town, whatever, some people simply prefer their FiST to be race car at all times... so for those people yeah, don't get a progressive rate at all then, hehe... but I know having lived and driven LA freeways, no way would I want a stiff non-progressive spring unless my car was literally mainly for racing, and it's far from that... Anyway, again, just saying for those who want a slightly softer ride that takes away most of the harshness but still handles great there's nothing wrong with just springs if that's all you need.

Fortune auto 500 series is very hard to beat for the money, I’m actually selling a set of eibach pro kit springs on stock struts with 18k miles. Just have to learn how to post on the sale page lol they ride very good for a DD but no where near as stiff as a dedicated coilover

Mountune is a fixed rate/height spring you have to pair with your choice of struts.

ISC are complete coilover kits you can adjust rebound/damping (not independently) and height. I've ridden in the isc basic streets and they seemed nice.

I just installed bilstein b14s for the regular Fiesta since I wanted the upgraded performance, minimal drop and I don't need the adjustability. The fiesta St b14s drop it too much but the kit I got is only .5-.75" drop at it's highest setting. Rides and performs great. Huge upgrade over OEM in every way.

Thanks man, I'll have to really look into them. I've only heard so little, so it doesn't help any. We'll just have to bite the bullet and try them out, hm?

Concerning the "Clubsport" suspension kit from Mountune, the Bilstein B8 dampers and Mountune lowering springs: does Mountune ship the fronts with the springs installed already?

Also, side question, does anyone have issues ordering directly from Mountune USA? I placed an order a week and a half ago and it's been radio silent ever since. They listed the kit "ready to ship in 1-2 days" and my payment processed immediately, but they've not yet shipped and I've tried contacting them multiple times with no luck.

I do not think they ship preassembled. As far as Mountune shipping goes welcome to dealing with Mountune USA . They for the most part are cool peeps but tend to get backordered and are erratic with shipping stuff because of it. I know I was told something was not in stock but I went ahead and ordered it and got it pretty quickly I have seen people wait. The radio silence is kinda par for the course with them if stuff is out of stock. Did you actually call them? or just email? Also given the fact that a lot of businesses were not open due to Covid19 its even more hit and miss here. I know quite a few performance parts companies that have kept their doors open because essential business but you never know . They could be working on a skeleton crew basis. They could have had what you ordered in stock for like one car and someone ordered right before you. I always try to call as thats the best way email and text is for people afraid to actually talk on the phone don’t be afraid to give them a call if you have not already.

Yes. It's in the description.
"The mountune Clubsport Suspension system includes assembled front struts with all new genuine Ford components eliminating the need for a spring compressor during installation saving both time and money. "

As far as them being open I believe they never closed. I order pads from them in March at the start of shutdown and they arrived within a week.

I stand corrected!

Thank you (and Dpro) for replying. That may not have been in the description at the time I placed the order, but the company was nice enough to reply to me shortly after I made that post. They did in fact arrive assembled. I ordered long before the Covid thing caused closures and shipping issues.

So. Bilstein B6s are not listed for the ST180 in the UK, Their only offerings are Full Coilovers or B8s.

I'm wondering if the B8s are the default damper for STs across the pond. I also wonder if the B6s are for the regular Fiesta and the B8s are for the ST...

So i got a response from Bilstein UK. Despite me not finding the B6 widely available, the situation is the same. Bilstein UK also recommend the B6 for OEM springs.
