Smile heavy duty springs, shocks, and swaybars?

Hi, I'm not really someone who knows much about cars, however I would like to fix up my focus to have a really smooth ride. (Like when it was new)

I'm guessing that I'd need to buy heavy duty springs, shocks, and swaybars. Does anyone have any advice in this area? And about how much would all this cost? (including labor)

I drive a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Hatch.

you may get better response in the suspension forum but....

Springs rarely wear out. to restore your original ride all you should need are some new shock absorbers as these are a wear item. These can be had installed for less than 500$
Sometimes the bushings in the control arms wear out, but to replace them all would be expensive, so i would instead inspect them all for play or serious corrosion and replace only those that are shot.
