Ford service center will..

install any aftermarket parts??
The reason I am asking this is that..
The place I am living has only one tuning shop and there is no one else can do a job,one day my friend installed aftermarket springs and about 1month later, he went to dealer and the dealer said whoever installed springs broke shock absorber or something..

And they installed header for my car and they don't even know how to install properly.
It took about 5 hours to get it done..

Will Ford dealer install any parts??

They might, however their shop rates might be kinda high. I dunno, you'd have to give them a call most likely.

learn how to do it your self. A cheap rental tool for springs, and some basic tools for a header, and you will have the satisfaction of doing it your self. Something more people should learn

If U do your mods yourself, you learn something new and different about your car and you get new tools...
U can buy a set of jack stands and a 2 ton floor jack for about 30-40 bucks ...
Then rent an impact wrench and other special tools required for the job from the tool shop or if U got the cash, buy the tools if they can be used on another mod/job in the future.

Most of the installation instructions for mods to the Focus can be found online somewhere...

The dealer will usually do it but they charge a lot for labor...

Good luck

Hey dude, you can drive across the country to West Virginia and let Lil_RedZX3 do it. Then if something get's f'd up you can blame it on him.
Nah, I wouldn't let the dealership do it. They will probably charge an arm and a leg. Then maybe an eye and a couple of hairs....

Unless its a heavy duty mod like cams or a turbo or something i'd say just do as much research as you can and see how it goes.

I do all my own, Its fun, pretty easy most of the time, and its a great excuse to buy more tools.
Plus you have the satisfaction of doing it yourself.
