Unfortunately there's not too many currently available. For some reason many of the big component manufacturers passed on the second gen Focus. Even Ford is no longer producing the Ford Racing shocks and springs, which is a shame because this was good stuff at reasonable prices.

There is an options though. Massive make an adapter called the Omni kit that allows the use of 1st gen suspension kits and parts. This opens up quite a few more springs and shocks options. The Sportlines are a love or hate them spring. The spring rates make matching a shock to them somewhat difficult. Koni Sports are probably the best option but also one of the more expensive ones. There's no cheap shock/strut that can adequately dampen these springs.
