Ms3 coilover kit on mk3 sedan

I am new to this forum and have done a lot of research on trying to lower my mk3. I have found out that to do the lowering springs I have to replace my front struts with ones from a 2012 - 2013 focus. Which doesn't seem bad at all but I want to lower mine more than 1.5". I did find a few threads about putting the ms3 coilover kit on the 14 focus but I have only seen them done on hatchbacks. Does anyone know if it is possible to put this coilover kit on a sedan? Here is the link for the coilover kit. http://www.racelandus.com/coilovers/...oilovers.html# I know it's not top of the line kit but I'm kinda on a budget and can't afford $1000+ for a kit. If anyone has either put an ms3 kit like this on their sedan or knows someone who has I would really appreciate some input. Thanks in advanced!

Hatchbacks share exact same suspension as sedan (ST has different one).

Just beware of what people have said about racelands, I hear they're very harsh. I'd save up the money for good coilovers/used ones.

I have KW V1s, which are identical to the ST ones (just one part is made of a different material. STs go for $900 easy on eBay.

So I was doing some research on these raceland coilovers and I found this http://www.mazdaspeedforums.org/foru...30/index7.html read to page 8 and 9. People are saying they ride pretty good plus they have a 2 year warranty on them. I think this might be worth trying. Their web page says they have a 30 day money back guarantee. I might just get these and see how they are. Wish I knew someone who had these so I could see how they felt.

Do you know if this would fit the sedan version? Also what is the part number?
Thanks.
