Unhappy SVT Suspension kit

I have been reading the threads on these kits and i have seen posts from 2005 zx4 owners having SVT kits installed w/ no problems, but when i go to purchase the kit it says:

SVT Focus Suspension Upgrade
The best bang-for-buck suspension package for your ZX3/ZX5. With the recent hault in production of the SVT Focus, Ford Racing has released an SVT Suspension upgrade to reduce un-needed stock of SVT components. For a minimal price your ZX3/ZX5 can be upgraded to use the SVT Focus suspension.

Kit includes struts, shocks, springs, and rear swaybar as well as installation hardware.

• Fits 2000-04 3 door and 5 door Focus
• Original equipment on SVT Focus
• Upgrades your stock Focus suspension to SVT Focus
• Improved handling characteristics without ride degradation
• Reduced ride height approximately .5''

Will this fit on a 2005 zx4 s?

Nope. Not without changing your front suspension. Which parts I don't remember, but it goes beyond just the kit...

If I remember my facts correctly a 2000-2005 ZX4 CAN use a SVT ZX3 suspension. Its all the same suspension I guess ford just did not think anyone with a zx4 would be wanting to get lowered. Look at other suspension sellers, they dont have it seperated saying ZX3/5 only.

Just wait untill my info is confirmed before you buy it but a 05 and down ZX4 can use the SVT suspension.

Stealth grey, your thinking about the 06 + that have a diffrent front suspension than the 05 -.

Now you have me wondering, my brain might have jumped a year. I know the '06's are SOL. '05 I might have jumped the gun.
BTW, if you decide to go with the SVT, B16 on here can get you a really sweet deal...

Thumbs up Thanks!

Hey, I just wanted to say thank you stealth. B16 gave me an awesome deal with extremely cheap shipping, he went out of his way to find my parts to fit stuff on my duratec and is extremely knowlegable and professional. Once again I extend my thanks to both you and B16!
