1sloho And also..this is the good thing about forums...if someone gives wrong info (my ), someone else will chime in and give the correct info, and hopefully not be a jerk to the guy who gave wrong info. Now ive learned as well. Thank you!

1sloho Ehh..i dont claim to know everything. Lol. I thought that foci with rear discs had the abs option and if it had drums, it didnt. I dont have abs so and never had it. And just because im a moderator of a certain forum, doesnt mean im a know it all in that certain area. Im a mod in the mk3 section but know crap about em. Lol

whynotthinkwhynot Everyone makes mistakes once in a while, so try to get over yourselves already. Having a lot of automobile knowledge is not a requirement for being a moderator. Not being a jerk is.

ah that's not right. The majority of foci came with abs. I do however have a model that does not. If ones with drums didn't have abs then why would there be threads and drums with and about the abs tone ring

To the OP next time you start your car look at the dash lights that come on before starting. If you have abs a dash light for the abs should come on and disappear. Or you could just look at the rear drums and see if there is a wire and a sensor on the back side or near the hub, that would indicate a abs sensor being there.

Black00ZX3 My mom's '07 Focus also has ABS too.

Also if you go to this web page and put in your VIN you can pull up your window sticker. Just replace "YOURVIN#" with your real VIN in the address bar.
