Yea, as you can see I chose the 5-Speed Manual Transmission... Because Manual - :)

Here's my point, regardless of whether a Drum to Disc conversion would cost $100 or $1000, the final question and purpose here is: Can it be done?

You find people out there who will spend $1,200-$1,500 on Coil-overs and others who are just happy with $250 springs - It's YOUR choice if you decide to go for either or...
However, EVERYONE appreciates those who take the time to put together the write-up, instructions, provide information, give details, offered help, give advice, provide pictures, diagrams and tips on what to look out for, Dos and Dont's etc. on either one of the set-ups - Coil-overs or Springs.
So, not to go off-topic, we can spend 10-20 pages of this thread discussing why Discs are better than Drums or vice versa - OR we can turn this into an instructive and useful thread that shows whether or not it can be done and how to do it! :)

Keeping up with this - Does anyone have access to the Ford Service Manual for the 2012 Focus? Or does anyone have access to the online Parts Catalog (not that Trademotion type of stuff)
