You do realize that a GTO is rwd and a Focus is fwd, right? You want a thicker bar on the *front* of a rwd car and a vice-versa on a fwd car. If you put a 25mm Eibach rear sway bar on the SVT, it's going to increase oversteer a bit.

Ok guys, sorry to thread jack, or not catch what I needed to out of this.
1st post, in need of emergency help here!!!

I NEED ASAP: OE 2003 SVT Focus Hatchback, Front Lt and Rt Struts !!!
Im having problems finding the part online ... been searching google everywhere !
I dont need anything special, just a stock replacement. This is my dad's car, and it needs to be fixed asap! The local Ford Dealership screwed us over, the car was "wrecked" and after it came from the body shop, i took it to the dealership to align and check it out. Well they said nothing was wrong and 60$ later I was out the door. 2000 miles later, I check the front tires, worn to metal. They check it back out. Bent strut. They refuse to replace to front tires, saying that the car was damaged after the alignment, that this was not a mistake on there part by missing the damaged struts ...
My dad refused to do buisness with them. Now im left to clean up the mess while he is out of state.

If anyone can help, please email me at the below address. I need these asap, if you have links, part #'s, some for sale, anything at all, I would like to know !!! Thank you for your help Focus fans, I come to you from www.moddedmustangs.com :) Ford For Life :)!!!

1-800-328-9552. Talk to Steve in Parts at Toulsey Ford and mention focusfanatics/focaljet. Anyway, ~$180 for all new front and rear shocks and struts shipped to your door.

Enjoy!

I recently decided on Koni STR-T (orange) and new SVT springs. I am waiting for new control are bushings to come in to get the springs in as well. It cost me about $470. If you are interested, you could get all new springs, struts, and springs (stock on SVT) with struts and front springs already assembled for $329 from Summit:

for the clamps, just go to a muffler shop and tell them to weld couple drops on the actual sway bar (on the places where u gonna put clumps). It's a $10 job and it will never move :)
