I called Ford performance group (1800 Ford 788) and they verified that the left and right have different part numbers and that the two I have are correct for the M-18000-ZX3B kit. I wonder why others have posted on this forum that the left and right have the same part number? See: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...5&postcount=21

The only difference is A & B= right/left in that post.

Does anyone know what these usually sell for on the forum, new? I decided against installing this and was thinking of selling them.

True, but how good would it look with hubcaps? The stock suspension is still in good condition. But really though, any idea how much they are worth since they're still new?

they would look fine, overall height of the OEM tires are within a couple mm of each other. The bigger 16/17" rims are wider and have more rim less sidewall. 1.5" drop still leave some fender gap so it looks better, but most people wont notice walking by.

Plus you already paid for them, your going to loose money selling it even if its NIB. Then you still have to get regular shocks which your going to spend an easy $150 no springs, no strut bearing, no strut mounts. Loaded struts are like $125/piece + rear shock $20-$30/piece. That puts you up to $300 with tax from the local parts store.


edit: Also, you'd be how surprised a "good" suspension isnt' when it gets old. Replacing my brother springs and struts on his 100k car that was 'fine' was pretty big difference to me at least.

Start with what you paid and add a "or best offer." The price all depends on the supply/demand and how fast you want to sell. Expect to take a loss on the deal...

I had the FRPP setup with stock 15" and hubcaps, looked far better than before and instantly made the car more fun. I highly recommend installing it, great mod. I had no issues with the car being too low or anything negative from installing. Ford should have made it an option from the factory.
