i know this is old post but im bored and awake. suspension that i have had luck with either using or knew people that ran them minus the reiger. shell out 2 years pay for those no doubt.
*RS-SP. is truley state of the art for the price. probably 6 grand im not sure. www.rallispec.com they might be the only authorized seller for NA. they make a focus kit.
*DMS AMERICA. They are also a great suspension. ran them on my subaru. dms 50's. They dont have a remote resevoir. The jumbo's do but they dont make those for the focus. The 50's run about $5000 for the focus. and the Jumbos are like $18,000. but dont make them for the focus i dont think.
*Proflex. Also are good and probably more than the 2. i havent seen prices on them lately.
*Hotbits are newer like rssp and have made a good name for themselves.
*Reiger is the ultimate in suspesnion if you r wealthy

Im running hotbits as well, we have had some issues with them. So caused by the shocks and some by the top hats. They are not as stout as I would of hoped, currently Im looking into Bilstein 46mm custom pieces for the front.

Bang for the buck JVAB suspension-all the way.

Bilstein based,custom rally specific coilovers,40mm or 50mm,made in Washington state.

Rear:





I don't believe he normally sells the tubular stuff shown-just the struts themselves.

But IIRC he did have the stuff made to his spec for the customer-so you can ask.

But on the rear-I wouldn't bother with the tubular trailing arm.

Beef the stock one instead-either with tubes or however..

Concerning the rear struts-you may want to consider ditching the pin mount tops show for conventional tops with mounts welded in(double shear).


Here is the front:
