gondorian It is different for both. You can tell by looking at pictures of the suspension that the shocks are not the same.

lbrowne Hrmm, I checked online and couple places are listing the wagon shock the same as the other models. Which ain't right for anyone that checks ebay - Monroe definitely lists two different part numbers between the wagon and all other models.

Monroe lists the same rear shock on the wagon for 2000 - 2007.

Yes, thanks. He's asking if an 05 suspension will fit his 03. AFAIK, the wagons went unchanged between model years.

lbrowne Hrmm, fair enough.

I'll grab the new front struts off the sedan, they still have the ford tags on them.

However, there's a couple of late model focus wagons there, (05+) would the rear shocks be the same on my 03 wagon?

Thanks fellas for the timely response!

jmiller_1974 What mac said. "except wagon" is the order of the day when buying suspension bits, unfortunately.

mac.mogul The Wagon is the one that has a different rear suspension setup

The rest are interchangeable within certain model years.

Does anyone know? I was going to grab fairly new struts and shocks off a 4 door focus for my wagon. I know the fronts will works, but are the backs different?
