Suspension Conversion?
 
Was wondering how possible it would be to make 05-11 suspension fit on and '04.

Here is the Brake and Suspension interchange guide HERE

06+ Foci use a bigger diameter front strut and it will not fit in the 00-05 front knuckle. 00-05 struts can fit an 06+ Focus with the use of an omni kit by Massive (essentially a shim that fits over the base of the strut.

Whats the purpose of the conversion to the later setup? The 06+ is the cut off. You can use the '05 only spindle for bigger brakes= svt & still use your struts. You will need '05 ball joints as the '05 spindle's use a bigger tapered stud.

Oh I found someone locally on craigslist that was selling a suspension setup for an 08 focus and I was curious to see if I could make it work. Alas, no.
