Do the suspension and steering need to be changed at all.
If you convert the front of the car to the svt/normal focus 2000-2004 you will be able to fit the front fenders...

But: you have to move 1cm the a/c compressor.
You have to change also the washer fluid reservoir for the RS one.

The above is a must if you buy the plastic cover around the wheel. The normal one will not fit for the RS fenders. If you buy the rs fenders only the RS bumber will fit. Also keep in mind that you will have a 8 cm gap between the fender and the wheel!!! You have to get a shorter spring (RS ones) and also a shock absorter. you can buy the RS absorter, but you have to also buy the rs knockle and hub, halfshaft etc because the RS absorter is thicker than original.

About the rear fenders: you are not able to order them anymore. You have to get into a workshop and ask whether they do it or not. Also keep in mind that in the rear the gap will be also 8 cm. You can buy the rear absorter and springs for the rear. but... before you make it wider.. you have to get out the original panel which is over the wheel and get new one which goes higher, also the plastic shuld be changed...

just to inform you, the front:

Bumbper: 600 USD
Mesh: 450 USD
Fog: 2x 110 USD
Fog rings: 2x20 USD
Side gril: 2x30 USD
Holders and accessories: cca 120 USD
Fenders: 2x 340 USD
Cover plastic: 2x 100 USD
RS washer reservoir: 100 USD
RS springs: 400 USD
RS absorters: 500 USD
And you have to paint the bumpers and fenders..

Of course without shipping to US.

yea thats a good idea but i think its cheaper/easier to get the RS fenders for the front and mold the flares to the quarter panel...cause when you go to the RS bumper u lose the side indicator lights and the RS fender has them but it'll cost way too much to install quarter panels so i would recommend just molding the flares to the quarter

no, i'm not kidding, the mesh is 450 USD, the upper also... i bought them from an RS owner who bought new ones (chrome). i paid 200 usd for both;-) he did not know the new price of the meshes.

another example:

washer fluid reservoir for common foci: 29 USD
washer fluie reservoir for RS foci: 110 USD

difference: RS has higher curve...
