Is there any How-To with installing this kit on our generation? I tried searching but didn't seem to find anything.

Not that I know of, the suspension goes in the exact same way as every other focus. The only difference is that the '08+ have slightly larger shock bodies. I did my complete install in under an hour, it really is super simple!

The worst part is either getting the axle nut off and the axle out of the hub or getting the strut out of the pinch fitting.

I never pulled my axel, just sway bar, brake line, pinch bolt, and upper strut bolts in that order. Than just push down hard on the spindle and it popped right out. Took longer to get the car in the air and wheels off then to change them out.

You have a 2011, nothing is rusty yet it'll be easy as pie.

You get everything in the package so put it all together correctly and then everything goes in the same way it comes out

What all is needed with this kit?
Just tools.

The kit comes with everything ... 2 struts, 2 strut mounts, 2 strut bearings, 4 springs, 2 shocks, and 2 shock rubber dust boots.

It's a complete kit [:D]

The Omni kit is only needed if the kit that you have is for 00-05 cars. If you get the specific 08-11 kit you wont need the Omni Kit.

Spring compressors - these don't come with the kit (from what I've read). I intend on putting this kit on my 09 and the only "special" tool required is the spring compressors.

Found this with a quick search (08 FRPP install): http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=161184

But, he didn't use the spring compressors to remove the old springs.....I think it would have made the install a little easier/quicker IMO.

Does anyone have the part# for the kit. When you look at frpp's website it shows only the 00-04 and the 05-07
