I have racelands on my Focus and i love them so far. Feel sturdy, good paint apps, and good adjustablitly. I dont have any clunking or anything with them. I have only had them on for about 400 miles so I cant exactly say how long they will last, but i havent had a single bad thing to say about them.
OH adjusting the rears is a pain to do by hand, if you get them i suggest going and getting a "10mm allen 3/8 drive socket" to do it. I put it on my impact driver at the lowest setting and spin them baby's down. Hope this helps!

Get racelands. They are truly amazing for the price, and dont let anyone on here tell you otherwise. I have had most all the top brands for the focus but recently decided to go cheap and buy racelands. I am extremely pleased with how they ride and perform.
