The ST RSB requires new spindles out back.

I'd love to crawl under one whenever one comes in stock around me just to see what the difference is.

+1.. Looks decent for those of us looking for a modest upgrade.

I wonder, however, what the resale value will be for a Focus with a Ford Racing Suspension installed by the dealer vs a Focus with an Eibach Spring kit installed by a sweaty teenager in his garage with a torque wrench that is also used as a breaker bar, and an incomplete set of sockets where a 15mm can be substituted for a 9/16th's.

Personnally, 20 years from now, I might pay a little more for a "factory" tuned Focus vs. a garage tuned Focus.

I'd like to know if the car's warranty would still apply if you have it installed at a Ford dealer... that was the case with my previous VW.

It likely would hold it's value better, which is part of why it appeals to me.

It's up to the dealer, but typically Ford Racing parts aren't covered by the car's warranty.

Tousley Ford quoted "$621.50 plus shipping, the current ETA is August 31st" for the M-FR3-FS kit. Pretty tempting.

See thread number 127 here:

I would expect them to be covered undered their own warranty. Do they not have a warranty?

There's a list on Ford Racing parts website that lists what is and is not covered by warranty.
