Rebel Devil just came out with their lift kit for the mk3 focus. Currently they have kits for the NA, and are developing kits for the ST and Rs suspensions. They are all inclusive kits that will correctly raise your car. https://rebeldevil.com/index.php?opt...t-3&Itemid=170

I am interested in trying to upgrade my base SE suspension with a THP.
I want to test drive a car with this package first though.
CARMAX in my area has several Titanium Foci.

Can anyone tell me how I can tell if a car has the THP?

I believe it would have the optional 18 inch 5 spoke wheels instead of the 17 inch multispoke wheels. Not 100% sure though.

Just a heads up everyone. There's a glitch in Ford's system.

I recently rebuild my entire front suspension (struts). For my 2013 Titanium, build Sept. 2012 (Touring Suspension), I needed the following parts:

1x CV6Z-18124-E (AST-943) (Driver Strut)
1x CV6Z-18124-F (AST-944) (Passenger Strut)
2x BV6Z-5310-B / BV61-5310-NG (Springs)
2x CV6Z-18A047-A (Dust Cover)
2x CV6Z-3020-A (Strut Bumper)
2x DV6Z-18198-D (AD1151) (Strut Bearing)
2x CV6Z-18183-A (AD1152) (Strut Mount)

Now, you need the spring insulator. In Ford's system, it'll tell you the following part CV6Z-5414-B. This part replaced CV6Z-5414-A. However, CV6Z-5414-A is still the correct design for our struts and CV6Z-5414-B will not fit. The problem is CV6Z-5414-A cannot be ordered anymore since this part was discontinued.

You will need to get CV6Z-5793-A (2x) instead. It says "Without Touring" but it'll work for our touring suspension.

The above parts will work for any 2013 Titanium (or SE Sport) with Touring Suspension build between Dec 2011 and Dec 2012.

I have Focus 2012 TDCI 1.6 85kW and left strut was BV-61-18K001-ABC but I break it, can I replace it with BV61-18K001-HAC.
Right one is good and it's BV61-18045-ABC.

I just installed the ford performance spring on my 2013 Focus S sedan, it was only a half inch drop but stiffed up a bit. Really happy with it, was only $125. Iv'e got a video of a canyon run on my channel (shameless plug I know haha SDR720) and it was holding between 45-60 around those corners where the suggested speed is 30mph. Im gunna do a rear sway bar and wheels and tires next, but im on the fence about the front adjustable swaybar endlinks from steeda, or how I would fine tune those.

From what I understand is that the sedans exhaust is shorter. Fswerks has exhaust for both.
