This is the one I bought and it fits fine: https://www.steeda.com/Steeda-Focus-...ll_p_9691.html

The one you linked is for a Fiesta but I don't know if it makes a difference. The part numbers are different though. The one I linked 100% fits the Mk2 Focus

Yea no prob, definitely looks great and 100% better than stock. I haven't noticed any issues with losing FM stations, all of my regular FM stations come in fine. Have not tested with AM at all.

Ouch that sucks that it got stripped dude.

So what I did was tightened the screw part onto the actual antenna first with a little bit of the tip sticking out of the bottom, should be able to hand tighten until it won't go into the antenna anymore.

Then I screwed the antenna+screw onto the antenna base on the car. Then I took a cloth and wrapped it around the antenna and used some adjustable pliers to tighten the antenna on (gotta be real careful here) until I couldn't get it off by hand.
