Need some answers

I'm on a budget for a lift. will the springs and struts on a Ford Taurus fit on the same year Ford focus? Spring ratings for both would be ideal

I'm assuming larger in all dimensions, so they just won't fit.

Felix spent a lot of Dealership time, so he's seen them more and could guess from that.

Strut diameter and Spring/mount size would be the issues to check, even later Focus won't fit.

First Taurus forum I looked at didn't have anything to offer beyond a larger brake thread.

Well I don't know if it's called the lower control arm on the focus lol but at the bottom of the strut there's a little bracket on the side and it's the same as the focus
