No, but I highly recommend replacing the strut bearings any time you pull the front suspension apart.

The strut mounts for the ST are stiffer, as well.

Alright I haven't used the forums too much so I am probably not writing in the correct section but im looking to purchase coilovers and don't know which ones to buy. Im looking to have barely any wheel gap on the front and back, which coilover systems should I purchase?

-KSport Kontrol Pro Coilovers
-D2 Racing Coilovers
or any other suggestions

I have had the sportlines on the car for over a year now. I am a huge fan, always have been on other cars as well. This picture doesnt do it much justice, as it looks better in person, but you get the idea.

So I've read in a lot of places that they don't make any lowering springs for the non-ST 2014 Focus yet.. however, I found these. Would they work then? http://injectedstore.com/products/ei...utocross-track

Seeing as nothing changed in the 14' I don't see why they wouldn't work.

Those with the '14 say they can't do the springs because something with the front suspension was changed. There's a bunch of threads that say it won't work yet and no one makes them currently... But other websites say they'll fit. I'm pretty confused as you could guess. I would get new struts and shocks too of course.

I would recommend installing the ST struts with new springs. I can't see there being an issue installing any MK3 lowering springs on the stock 14' struts, but I can't say for sure as I haven't seen them.

I am planning on installing the ST struts and Ti Handling package rear shocks when I install springs in my car, just need to decide on what springs (Steeda or Eibach Pro's)

My thoughts exactly. I'm not sure why everybody else is seemingly having a difficult time with this.
