I was in contact with a local dealer who contacted Ford Racing. Unfortunately they did not provide any more information that the website offers. The dealer has quoted me a price of $1785 + Tax. This includes the kit + installation. I not so sure about paying $800 for the installation.

You don't want to miss out on all the fun of modding do you? I'd be all over that.

I'm really confused with this and am going to pm the tirerack guy on here if I can find him. This kit is nowhere to be found on eibachs site, but they do have the spring and sway combo for nearly $700. No mention of dampers, though.

Yeah, I'm pretty much not sure what to think now either. It's listed with dampers but there are some in here that say otherwise...

Got some input from Trevor at tirerack. Apparently this kit does include Eibach sport dampers. That is a great price for the set...but I still can't find a stitch of info regarding eibach dampers and the 2012 focus.

In other news, the FRPP website now also has an axelback exhaaust for the 2012's at $399. Of course the catback remains a mystery as no one seems to have it, so who knows when we'll get info on this. Exhaust is pretty low on my priority list, anyway.

Axle back is a waste of money and the time to install it

The Eibach setup is sweet and for the price you can't beat it. It's nice to finally see more and more parts come out for our cars
