^Agreed. Because the focus uses shocks in the back and not struts. The entire rear suspension is pretty much built into the lower rear subframe. A LOWER rear brace may be a different story, but the upper is mostly useless. The only real gain in chasis rigity is from a harness bar that braces the upper portions of the B pillars to the lower portion of the chasis or a actual roll cage.
