Type DYB is their nomenclature for the Mk3 Focus, so that part is good.

The '12 and '13 cars use a different strut mount bottom as compared to '14 and up. I don't know if those'll fit the 15 strut or not.

I have a '12 SE with their springs on it, but I'd have to see if I can find what p/n was shipped to me. If that p/n is different than what was shipped to me, you'd be good to go. I'll see what I can find out.

Edit: I just switched that page to English - the following:

Build from 1 Apr 2011
Build up to 1 Oct 2014

I'm not convinced that any manufacturer has actually produced '14 and up springs, but some have said H&R does (which, usually H&Rs require a sport strut of some sort, they kill stockers as far as I know...).

The easy way around it is to get the "early" style struts for the car. When I changed my struts recently, I went with the Ford Handling Pack struts - inexpensive, and the car is a little crisper. You should be able to find some for ~ $100, but it'll work.

For what it's worth, I enjoy my Vogtland's (progressive wind) - good ride quality, close to stock at initial spring travel, and they tighten up pretty good when they're pushed (such as at autocross).

Moved to the Brakes, Suspension & Chassis section for a better fit.

More info. here and better for future reference.

Yes, the H&R for the newer models is out there but with mixed reviews/lack of detail so far. One member didn't have good results (Europe) that I remember, haven't seen a final outcome of trying options.

I thought the problem was they didn't fit... but, that's memory, I'd have to find that thread.

IIRC it wasn't a basic fit issue, squeaks or something he didn't like.

Can't remember the username yet, Finland for location comes to mind.

I have H&R springs on my '11 Focus (Europe). They're good enough but car sits higher on the front and rear squeak a lot at low speed over small-medium bumps and rough road.
