Which Coilovers/Dampers fit our Focus?
 
Im debating on Steeda Springs and mazdaspeed 3 dampers or coilovers for my 2012 Focus hatch. Ive seen on this forum someone using Vmaxx coilovers from the MK2 focus

Ive also seen someone use OEM Mazdaspeed 3 shocks.

Do both of those really fit? Im debating on Mazdaspeed 3 shocks and steeda springs or a 650-800 coilover setup.

Also do the regular Mazda 3 2010+ dampers work? They make Tokico blues and Koni Strs for them pretty affordably priced

I seen a thread of someone using MS3 front struts but they had to cut the tab that holds the brake line I believe. But other than that they fit. I think it was linked in the thread for what fits the MK3.

Also MS3 springs fit.

This thread first post mentions the MS3 springs and links to Strut thread

I saw that thanks. Id assume the mazda 3 normal shocks would work too

Since seeing the write up on the MS3 Front strut I am debating on getting some MS3 Coilovers. I know some MS3 people and maybe able to get a good set cheap. IDK yet. depends on wife since her daily.

Just wondering, sorry to revive such an old thread. WHo here has actually tried MS3 coilovers?

Is it literally just hte tab for the knuckle that needs to be ground down? Raceland has a set real cheap.. amongst other brands.

Thanks for the move. I'm also curious how low ST's go compared to KSports, but KSport doesn't list drop range. Hmm.

These are what I'm talking about. I had a set on a mk3 golf & a mk4 jetta, the Jetta ones rode acceptable. The spring rate is a lot lower on these than say, ST's and KSports though.
