2012-2013 focus handling pack

Anyone have an idea how much it would cost (for labor) to install these at a Ford dealership? Can any suspension garage install them for me if I don't want to go to the dealership?

Also, what types of lowered suspensions are you guys sporting? Any recommendations on a suspension kit? Thanks.

Blue, any mechanic can install those components. That would be a pretty basic install.

i would think you need at least a new alignment job after install

install yourself and then get the alignment. once you do it the first time, you'll realize that all these years it wasn't that bad. youtube probably has some vids on it. but to answer, any and all shops can do it. dealership will charge alot, but some shops may not install parts they didn't buy (if shops elsewhere are anything like around here)

First, Summit Racing has this set for $779 with free shipping.
Second, i just got a quote last week of $350 for install with alignment.
That does NOT include the front sway bar, only the rear.
(The front would probably add multiple hours of work, plus I have heard that the front sway bar almost neutralizes the effect of the rear sway bar.)
