What about getting the Eibach Pro / Sport kit paired to the Bilstein B6 shocks?
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=317098

Or are there any other shocks (koni, etc) that could be used with the kit?

^^^^

This sounds like a good way to go but I think the shocks alone are about the same price as the ford racing kit.

+1

I think the lowest price I found for b6 struts was 250 each, and about 115 each for the b6 shocks. 700+ just for dampers...

It had been discussed numerous times before, it's confirmed by Eibach that there are no dampers included in this kit.

Bilstein shocks and h&r sport springs are awesome combo. I love the ride quality bilstein shocks provide.
