Suspension/Chassis parts
 
Aside from the sway bar and coilovers available, are there any other suspension components being made at the moment? Looking for pretty much anything here... Strut brace...anything.

There probably won't be a strut brace made for our Focus for a while if at all, since the Focus comes with one from the Factory (look under the cowling, its the black bar). Steeda has some springs, front sway bar end links, and a rear sway bar.

Rumor has it that Ford Racing has a suspension kit coming out soon, similar to what the have for the Fiesta. Haven't seen a strut brace, and have no idea where one would fit since the strut towers are directly below the wipers. I'm sure someone will develop something, though.

And if you want to pay the shipping, they have Bilsteins in Europe.

Not sure what good a strut tower brace replacement would do, there is already one mounted between the shock towers and underneath the plenum, unless you really want to see it, but it wouldn't be that visible unless you painted it a bright color.

I apologize, I haven't received my car yet so I am still not exactly sure where things are as of yet.

Its cool. You already caught the modding bug and you don't even have it yet. LOL! [wrenchin] I have heard a few people on here that the Steeda rear sway bar makes a huge difference in the handling, so that may be the best bang for your buck.

You could say that...a picture of my truck is below. (The hood isn't cut anymore)

I figured a stronger and/or lighter strut brace would be made, possibly of stainless or something but it seems like it is hidden? A 3 point may be an option later. Does anyone offer a front sway bar of any sort yet? I'm not a fan of just swapping coils, so some form of adjustable coil overs will be had in the future.

White line makes from adjustable sway bars as well as rears. There are a bunch of coilovers for our cars.

What good would it do by comparison to the beefy brace installed on the 2013 models? The 2012 wasn't exactly weak either.

Most aftermarket suspension/ strut tower braces don't make that big of a difference on the handling, especially when there already is a piece tying the two towers together.
