Inner tie rod question

I posted a thread about getting opinions on a suspension set, but it also looks like I need to get a inner tie rod and a hub bearing (driver side). The question I have is this.....Is the inner tie rod on the SVT the same as a regular ZTEC? I called one place and was told they are completely different. Then I happened to come across a company (sells focus stuff...won't mention name) who said that they are the same. So, is there a difference? I also wanted to know if you guys think it would be a good idea to replace the upper stut mounts on each side while I'm getting my new suspension installed? Any feed back is greatly appreciated.....

ask a ford dealership. they'll be able to tell you for sure. I think it's different, but I'm not 100% sure.

They are not the same, I don't know what the physical difference is but the SVT has a specific part number that is different from a normal Focus.

I don't have the part number right now because I am at home, sorry.
