Finally pictures that show diffrence between 05 & 06 suspension

Ok so I keep seeing people asking "Can someone take pictures that show the diffence between the 05 & 06 suspension?"

And seeing how I have an '05 (ST) and an '06 (ZX3) sitting in my driveway I'd figure I'd try my luck to see if I can find any diffrences.
I didtake pictures of the back suspension but saw no diference at all. And since I've heard that only the front was changed I assumed that the backs are the same between the '05 and '06.

See for yourself. All '05 pictures are on the left, '06 on the right.


TOP STRUT MOUNTS




BOTTOM SPRINGS/STRUTS







Make you're own opinions but I think jsut by changin out the struts for an earlier Focus would allow you to run spings for earlier model foci. But I'm no expert.

You're welcome.

Okay, that helps a little more, along with the other posted on fj.

Its good to see the strut tower is the same. I don't see why a compelte 2000-05 front suspension can't bolt in. However, someone said that they couldn't get aftermarket dampers to work, but they didn't provide enough details.
