06-07 shocks/struts on 08-11 focus

Hey you guys, I just need some clarification. So 06-07 shocks/struts will fit right in a 2010 focus right? And 06-07 springs will fit in too right? All I have to do is change the tops hats and use my 2010 top hats instead of the 06-07 stop hats right?

Yes 06-07 will bolt it, but you have to use 06-07 springs with 06-07 top hats.
remember 08+ springs with 08+ hats or 06-07 springs with 06-07 hats only, you can not mix them.

here is an example of the FRPP (06+) set up and my factory 2010 struts.

On, okay. It's because I have 06-07 struts/shocks ready to be installed. And I also have 06-07 eibach sport lines ready to be used also. I have the 06-07 top hats too. I wasn't sure to install them yet because I wasn't 100% sure.

you should be good to go.
Im getting ready to install a stock '07 setup with "lift" spacers onto my 2010, you should be fine.

for riding around in the desert. And to make the car an all around "allroad" capable driver.
I spend a lot of time outdoors where having a lowered FoFo is to much of a comprise.
