Just make sure you buy 14’ ST struts. They made a change from 2012/2013 to 2014+years. I’d replace the top hats, bearings, strut bolts, etc while you’re in there. It’s a bit of a bear but doable. My total came to $235 +shipping from Tousley Ford. Plus $230 for the springs from Steeda (they’re running a Labor Day sale).

Go with the eibach sportlines if you want 2”. I left the rubber isolator inserts out from the struts which might give you another 1/4”. Looking back I wish I would’ve left them in.

I’m fairly certain you can switch over by running the st struts from 2013 but just do a search through the mk3 forum to verify. It’s been discussed thoroughly. Here’s a link for the 2013 st front suspension diagram and parts. https://parts.autonationfordwhitebea...ion-components

Yea, you’d just swap out struts for 2013 ST struts. https://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/...ering-kit.html

For coils buy nice or buy twice...

For a cup kit set up make sure to pair those aftermarket springs with something nice too. Even though a stock set up can handle a mild drop you might as well upgrade it all when doing the work.
