The Tokico seem to be the only dampers for the 05-07's so what do you think of them? How different are they from stock? I have the Eibach pro kit springs on my 07 do you think they will match my springs?

Something that needs to be added, MassiveSpeedSystem sells an adapter that lets 06-07 guys use 00-05 front struts and coilovers.

interchange?-rear sway bar

The 07 se stick that I drive doesn't have a rear sway bar. It sure feels like one would really help. What years will interchange with the 07? For weekday daily driver/weekend aggressive mountain road driving use is a stock piece
or stiffer aftermarket bar the way to go? So far the car is stock, but shocks/struts are due for replacement after 18,000 miles. Please suggest
high quality replacements. Lowering the car much at all is out-some daily use is over dirt roads. Thanks for the help.

You can get a kit that comes with the mounts required to add one (your car doesn't have anything for the rear sway to attach to) from Steeda.

Thanks for the info. I will weld mounts to the crossmember. Anybody know about interchange between years for swaybars? Yeah, junkyards-er automotive recycle facility- is one of my parts stores. Whose shocks/struts
give better than stock control without the "racing" ride? This Focus is my first compact car, and I don't know anything about good suppliers.
