HS Autox in a 2002 Focus Wagon

Thinking about trying HS in a focus wagon I picked up. I'm curious about setups...

Not looking to earn a jacket in KS/NE, but would like to have a little fun. Wanted do a nice 'low' budget build for this season, so I thought Bilstein's might be a good option, but it doesn't appear they are made for the focus.

Are there other viable options besides OTS Koni's/KYB's? Now do KYB's work?
Also - Front sway bar - Big/Stock/None? What's the camber gain on these cars? Would the bigger front bar work in stock class to limit camber gain?

Thanks for the help!

Dennis

Konis in front--SPAX adjustables in rear (see www.batinc.net). BFB is a matter of taste--I like them on a stock FWD car. OE is 21mm. Street Edition Wagon OE is 22, so is Eibach. H&R is 24. I also make a custom 7/8" (22.25) that is 3-way adjustable (approx 21.5/22.25/23mm--uses OE endlinks)...just put one on the 2008 FSP ProSolo National Champion car.
