00-04 all LX or SE models did not come with a rear sway or the attachment points. and those models most likely make up about 70% of the focus models produced in those years.

redwake not sure why you are referring to the subframe and suspension in one breath but the suspension for the sedan will fit the zx3

sedan and zx3 interchangable? need help

ok so i need everything suspension all the way to the rear sub frame for my zx3. i am having trouble finding cheap parts cars in my area that are a zx3 but am noticing alot of sedans. so i was wondering if i could use one of them instead. i did some research and saw that the suspension should work but i wasnt sure about the sub frame or sway bar.
