They're saying 8" overall length- that would be a bear to stuff into a focus without MAJOR mods to the whole steering column. I think these are intended to be used where you're building a car from scratch, and you can lay the steering system out to accomodate it right from the beginning.
I must say though, I really don't see any reason why a car like the focus should need more than 2 turns lock-to-lock. It has 2 2/3 turns, btw.
Thanks for checking that out-
Often wrong but never in doubt.
