front strut bearing ??

i just picked up a 2000 focus sedan. the struts are shot. it has the eibach pro kit on it. the front strut mounts have a cam so you can adjust them but the threaded part of the strut broke and messed up the right mount.

i am sold on the svt damper kit and it comes with new strut mounts. will i need the adjustable ones like the car has? i dont want to buy ones i cant use

You don't need a front strut camber kit, the SVT strut tops will be fine.

I run the same springs (and SVT struts)and just had it aligned last week, asked the tech if I should get the front camber kit next time around; he said not to bother because he got the front where he wanted without it.

How do you like it? I have a stock rear swaybar. I'm going to replace the bushings with polys

I upgraded to SVT sway bars and poly bushings for all of 'em last week... love 'em! I'm now looking into the complete bushing set from Energy Suspensions because of it. I put coilovers on the car last fall, but reused the old strut mounts, and I noticed the Energy kit has poly strut mounts in it: so I'm really ready to do this!

The Svt bar is only 1mm thicker right?
I'm debating if I just want to take the time and do all the bushing now or just get it on the road
