yes, i have not actually had it happen to me personally, but i heard that once u put in the dogbone, it wears the other mounts, especially the driverside by an insane amount.
thats why i think when i get one i will get the whole kit.
sorry to hear about the focus breaking. i know all you wanted to do after the install is drive the thing.

i heard your best bet is to get all 3, cause if u get 1 or 2 it will cause a bad vibration, when all 3 r installed it isnt bad at all
i have done soo much research on them. too expensive to just go and buy for me
