Thumbs up MS3 & MK2 parts that fit the MK3 Focus

Thought I would start this thread and maybe it will become a sticky.

1. 2007-2012 MS3 rear motor mount (OEM or aftermarket. Helps with wheel-hop and provides a more "connected" feel between the chassis and drivetrain. Better shifts as well.). You can order at local Mazda Dealership, the part number is : BBN-39-040 price is right around $40

1.5) Factory Mazda bolt: 9YA0-2A-226A will cost about $9

2. 2007-2012 MS3 springs (2010-2012 recommended). Excellent results, but if you want an even front to rear ride height, you should cut 1/2 to 1 coil from the bottom of the front springs.

3. MK2 headers such as F2 and FSwerks fit with out issue, just get the longer flex pipe when ordering.

4. 2010+ MS3 struts (with modification) and rear shocks. See this thread: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=291074

As we add parts, I will add to the list. I know that amoosenamedhank is working on putting MS3 swaybars on the MK3 Focus as well...

Oops didn't realize this was a different thread.

As soon as I can get my hands on a Gen 2 MS3 RSB, I'll let you guys know. The bar is $130 new so I'm hoping to get a decent deal on a used one.

Question. Is it just the springs or do the struts from the MS3 fit as well?

The struts look exactly the same. They will fit. I have no doubt.

If we have the stock part number for something lets update the first post so others dont have to search for it. I added the stock MS3 RMM part number to post one

In that case I may be spending some money hopefully in next few months. gotta save. But I seen some Raceland coilovers for the MS3 I want to try. They say they are for 07-09 MS3. Nothing Fancy like dampeners or anything. just threaded Strut shaft for the front to adjust height and looks like pring and threaded sleeve for rear.

Being part of the Scion community they have been a good cheap coilover alternative. For $370 they get people lower than springs but not as low as the $1000 coilovers (like the ksports i have on my other vehicle) and they don't have the camber/dampening options. But I know people who have been running them daily for a while with no issues.
