Its a great kit. IMHO you cant get a better road suspension. if you wanted a stiffer more track type set up then there are other options. but this is a great set up to run on a new in 2002 focus and even better on a focus that's seen 11 years.

I would also replace the strut bearings up front and the isolators/bushings for the rear. you will likely find the old ones bad. or shortly in need of replacement.

Also check local... shipping on that is going to eat the savings from not paying sales tax or the discount you may get. Often people also sell this "kit" used as they progress to a more aggressive suspension set up.
