Yea, as you can see I chose the 5-Speed Manual Transmission... Because Manual - :)

Here's my point, regardless of whether a Drum to Disc conversion would cost $100 or $1000, the final question and purpose here is: Can it be done?

You find people out there who will spend $1,200-$1,500 on Coil-overs and others who are just happy with $250 springs - It's YOUR choice if you decide to go for either or...
However, EVERYONE appreciates those who take the time to put together the write-up, instructions, provide information, give details, offered help, give advice, provide pictures, diagrams and tips on what to look out for, Dos and Dont's etc. on either one of the set-ups - Coil-overs or Springs.
So, not to go off-topic, we can spend 10-20 pages of this thread discussing why Discs are better than Drums or vice versa - OR we can turn this into an instructive and useful thread that shows whether or not it can be done and how to do it! :)

Keeping up with this - Does anyone have access to the Ford Service Manual for the 2012 Focus? Or does anyone have access to the online Parts Catalog (not that Trademotion type of stuff)
2012 Candy Red SE Manual... I smell serious trouble.
