Failing in what way? Can you provide some documentation?

Also, its fairly easy to find threads on mustang forums about steeda bars breaking at the welds.

But to be honest, I wouldn't be too concerned about the steeda bar, lots of people have it with no problem.

Had a look at the JBR bar. Looks nice; adjustable and has grease fittings. A bit pricey compared to the Steeda. I guess I'll keep the Steeda unless I'm one of the unlucky ones but I might have considered the JBR if it had been out when I was looking.

JBR is the beefiest, probably almost a rough ride, but I'll be buying it

I couldn't make it out from the first few posts, does the Focus come with either a front or rear sway bar stock? I've been debating this mod for some time.
