I forget which Blistiens are the ones to get, I wanna say it was the B4's but I can't be sure. Koni's or AGX's are good too, there are threads on this in the Suspension forum. Just check the descriptions on the Blistiens to make sure they are the ones to use with lowering springs.

The Bilsteins are great. And so are the AGX's and Koni's.

If you are looking to save some money, I would go with the AGX's. The AGX and Koni's are great for AutoX.

**EDIT** I went to check out suspension for your ride. And I don't see the Bilstein's are made for your year of the Focus. I only see the Eibachs and the stocks on Tire Rack and CFM ...

Well, hopefully in a little over a week I will be ordering a brand new complete svt front brake kit conversion from Tousley :) Was going to need new rotors and pads soon anyway as the ones on there are the originals. Im gonna try to get a new passenger motor mount as well since mine blew and threw up its fluid.

I have a used rear kit without rotors/pads. Only wanted the caliper mounting brackets from it though. Plan on buying new hubs w/bearings for it. Calipers look ok just need to be cleaned really well. Spindles should also be ok but may buy new ones if necessary. Then ill get some new rear rotors and pads.
