Somewhere between 05 and 06 ford changed/redesigned the front struts. The omni kit is essentially a sleeve that allows you to fit the slimmer front struts from earlier models into the newer designed front. This increases the choices of aftermarket suspensions for later focus models.

I think the older set-up has a uniform spring shape. The newer one has a little pigtail at the bottom, which is, the diameter of the spring decreases for the last coil.

old:


new (springs are the ones on the left and right, and they are upside down compared to how they'd be on your car):

Just to add it'll only drop your car .05''. FRPP has 1.5'' springs too. If only 1/2'' Whats the point?
