I have my H&R all the way up and I feel like they're still too low for proper suspension geometry doing hard Corning.

That driveway sounds like a hassel.

You forgot a couple (assuming a Focus ST):

ISC N1 (http://www.redstartracing.com/ford/i...-focus-st.html)
BC Racing (http://www.bcracing-na.com/br-type/)

Both go for < $1K and are adjustable in Rebound and Compression, and allow for 3 degree of camber change.
