Crystal, here are some part numbers for the various 2012 Focus suspension configurations. The suspensions types are the same(ie. MacPherson strut up front and Control Blade in back), but different struts/shocks and springs combinations are used throughout the lineup. An SE Sport uses a touring strut and shock, same as the TI base, however they both use different springs in the rear. The S, SE base, and SEL use the standard struts/shocks. The SE Sport and TI base uses the touring struts/shocks. The Ti handling uses Handling struts/shocks. Most models use the same rear spring, some use the same front spring, and the Ti Handling uses a front spring specific to that model only.

This is compiled from checking dealer inventory VINs in Etis, parts lists from Fordparts.com, and information from other posters. It is interesting to see how the different models are packaged. It also makes me wonder if there are errors in Etis. For example, I don't see the "MD" rear springs being used with any model, but I expected them to be used on the Titanium with 18" wheels. Also, the SE Sport uses the S rear springs?

There is no difference between hatch and sedan suspensions.
All models use the same stabilizer bars - 23.5mm front and 19mm rear.
Both suspension packages use standard brake calipers and pads.
There are two different front lower control arms - one for the S model (15" wheels) and one for all other models (16", 17" and I assume 18" wheels).
Front suspension knuckles are the same, but different rear (I think) suspension knuckles for 18" wheels.
