Well, just ordered the first round of suspension parts.
- (2) AD-1098 Strut bearing (Focus ST) $10.80 ea
- (1) AST-12281 LH F Strut $37.93
- (1) AST-12287 RH F Strut $37.93
- (2) ASH-24518 R shock $46.53 ea

All came to ~190 in parts from Tousley, and I should have everything in the next week or so. Pretty cheap for nearly a full suspension overhaul.

Since the strut bearings are on backorder until 9/15, I'm holding off for now. I want to do a bit more research and see exactly just how compatible the S40/V50/C30/MS3 strut bearings are with our cars. They don't seem to have the same widespread failure issue, and they're meant for a slightly heavier car, thus they might be slightly more robust. It's a shot in the dark, but I'm tired of waiting for a solution from Ford.
