06 spec focus damper kit m-18000-zxm1

Does anyone know if these (06 SPEC FOCUS DAMPER KIT M-18000-ZXM1) could fit an 08 despite being labeled for 06?

Suspension for US focus from 06-11 should be the same. Search more in this section...
2008-2011 suspension kits (Photo's included)

i believe those dampers are the dynamic kit, stiffer than M-18000-ZX3B and more pricey...Not sure if they are still available either


edit, found a place that lists them for sale. if you click on the add to cart, this place actually lists them as 2006-2008.

Ford Racing had a high performance shock made for 06+ Foci which was primarily for spec racing. It was referred to as the Dynamic by Tokico. The 00-05 equivalent was The Multimatic by Dynamic (an actual company). This was an inverted design shock which the Tokico is not.

Very basic suspension fit summary:

Nothing new here but worth repeating as the stickies and search function must be getting more difficult to use (smiley here)

00-05 are all interchangeable*

(special note....in 06 Ford changed the front strut and spring design).

06-11 are interchangeable.*

00-05 can be used on 06-11 with a special shim for the lower strut mount made by Massive. It is called the "Omni Kit".

06-11 cannot be used on 00-05 models.

*The rear suspension on wagons is special to wagons. They won't fit on any other Focus and other Focus model rear shocks and springs will not fit the wagon.
