for U.S.-spec 2012 Ford Focus only
There is no difference between suspension components in hatch and sedan
The differences between various types of suspensions are:

1) There are 3 types of Front Shock Absorbers:

for Standard Suspension
for Handling Suspension
for Touring Suspension
2) There are 3 types of Rear Shock Absorbers:
for Standard Suspension
for Handling Suspension
for Touring Suspension

3) There are 2 types of Front Suspension Lower Control Arms:
1.for 16" Wheels and for 17" Wheels (made of aluminum)
2.for 15" Wheels (made of steel)
All other components (including front and rear springs and suspension knuckes) are currently absolutely the same for all models, trim levels and packages. Ford media page mentions stiffer springs on the Sport Suspension (SE optional Sport Package, standard on Titanium)
Damping varies in about three steps throughout the Focus lineup, Titanium with the handling package has the most aggressive of them all.
All Foci have the same 19-mm rear stabilizer bar, and front I believe is 23.5-mm stabilizer bar.
