Hey everyone!  Recently sold my Focus ST to finally make my dream of owning a wagon come true.  Just picked up my first longroof on Monday. She's a 1995 Roadmaster Estate with 115k, super clean interior, and a towing package!  I looked at soooooooo many wagons before pulling the trigger on this one and I'm super glad that I waited out for this one.  I had her purchased within four hours of being posted on craigslist.  Monday night after our 3 hour drive back home, I got on Summitracing.com and purchased 235/75/15 American Classic 1.6" WW, 15x7 Astro Supremes, Belltech drop springs, and Belltech drop shocks.  Super excited to get these installed.  I am a tad concerned though about the sticking with the stock tire size when slightly increasing the offset and lowering it.  Either way I guess we will find out Cool

I hope you ordered 235/70/15, as the 75's are taller and narrower.

Welcome to the site, I'm glad you saw the light and decided to trade a ford in on a real car. Looks good, can't wait to see what you do with it.

Welcome to the wagon gang! I am driving to Chapel Hill tonight for a wedding in Greensboro tomorrow afternoon. Would love to see the "new" wagon, but time it short this trip.

I feel that the ride is much firmer. You could say better handling also.
