^ Not too fond of the front bumper and spoiler but everything looks great.



I sure do miss my 10 focus but I love my 13 ST.

Out with the old

In with the new!

I did however ruin my ABS/Traction control sensors so I have to order a set from Ford, hopefully they aren't too expensive. Anyone know if these sensors are the same from an 02 to an 08? The reason I ask is because I got the break kit from an 02 so not sure if I need and 02 style sensor or if I need an 08?

The SS Break lines I ordered for the front didn't fit Not because of an error on my part either which is upsetting

My understanding is that you should be able to reuse the sensors.

Also, did you run into any issues tapping/drilling the spindle brackets to fit??

That's been my major concern in installing my kit since the holes are a different size.

Was out in the country this weekend and since the only lights for about 3 miles were on the front of my car I took a quick pic.

I don't know for sure but I think the build date on my car was very early because I didn't have to drill anything, it all fit like a glove.

The only reason I say that about the build date is because my car has TCS and ABS but no sync which seems to be a rare thing in the 08's. Plus as you mentioned with the spindles, I didn't have to drill anything like I thought I would.

I checked the sensors from the old to the new and they look identical, now all I need is the harness and I am good to go. I found some cheap ones on ebay that I am going to try so we will see how they work.

Yes, the early 08 build cars I believe had some parts that were prob left over from 07. So if you have an 08 it really a toss up to what you have (unless it was built late in the year). If you have an 09+ you will need to drill and tap the spindles.

Here is my HOW-TO
