What is the ultimate setup?

When people say brakes I think Brembo. When people say suspension I think Eibach. Are these really the best performance options or are these just the most economic? Opinions welcome.

Brembo and eibach are decent, but a far cry from the best. As far as suspension, I would never get eibach for a focus, I think h&r coil overs are probably up there toward best, as far as brakes, alcon all the way.

You think the bilsteins are better than h&r coilovers? And SSBC, are you just saying there good, or are they better than alcon, I know alcon brakes sell for many thousands of dollars.

What would be the cost of one of these suspension & brake combos?
