Actual differences between MK3 & MK3 Ti Handling Package?

I'm getting ready to buy the Ford Racing Handling kit with all new springs, sways, and shocks/struts.

Before I do I'd like to know a few things.

#1 What does the Focus Titanium Handling package add besides the 18" wheels and steering limiters? Part # of MK3 Focus without the handling package vs. with the package?

#2 Does the Ti Handling Package actually lower the car at all compared to an S, SE, or SEL?

#3 If #2 is yes, are the same shocks/struts, and springs part #'s in the Ford Racing Handling Kit?

I heard someone say that its "like" The Titanium Handling Package but not definite. The Ford kit lowers the car a half inch which is what I want, not 1.4" like other kits.

Lastly, any other similarities and or differences between the kit and the Ti package?

Hmm people might not feel like doing all the part # searching. When I have the time between work and I'm on my computer instead of my phone, ill check into those and post what I find here in case anyone else has the same question.

So far the springs in the kit are M-5300-S and lower the car .3-.6" The back sits a tad higher so needs that's my guess why the rear is .6 vs .3

Umm otherwise I'll continue my search tomorrow. Gotta go to bed and get up early for work. Uhh

Are the dampers actually different than the touring suspension?
