I replaced the rear shocks and upper arm bushings and its still sagging, not as much but its there. The car was used to tow a small trailer and was loaded to the max and driven from Dayton OH to Texas and did the rear suspension in.

Now I still have more bushings to replace, but it seems to be I have to replace the springs as well (and it looks like it will be a bitch) and maybe my problem will be solved. But as always you guys input would be appreciated! :)

Thanks, and great forum!
Welcome to the forum. i also had the same problem with a 2000 focus s i have i found by replacing the control arm was the way to go. i did that and had a 4 piont alignment done and all was fine.

now mine wasnt caused from towing as i was told by a ford mech friend that this was a common problem with this model.
