2012 Ford Focus Suspensions (US)

Recommended Posts

This is compiled from checking dealer inventory VINs in Etis, parts lists from Fordparts.com, and information from other posters. It is interesting to see how the different models are packaged. It also makes me wonder if there are errors in Etis. For example, I don't see the "MD" rear springs being used with any model, but I expected them to be used on the Titanium with 18" wheels. Also, the SE Sport uses the S rear springs?

 

There is no difference between hatch and sedan suspensions.

All models use the same stabilizer bars - 23.5mm front and 19mm rear.

Both suspension packages use standard brake calipers and pads.

There are two different front lower control arms - one for the S model (15" wheels) and one for all other models (16", 17" and I assume 18" wheels).

Front suspension knuckles are the same, but different rear (I think) suspension knuckles for 18" wheels.

Here is a post I made about ETIS in another thread.

 

You guys do realise that ETIS:

 

1. Is not meant to be used in the manner you guys are using it for.

 

2. Is a European website.

 

3. Is wrong on a lot of facts about your Foci or any other American built vehicle because of #1 and #2.

 

3. It is not the end-all, be-all site for your cars content and options, and any argument at the dealer about it being on ETIS and not the car will result in nothing.

 

Oh, and here is an update on your car:

Thanks so much for the update! It really makes the wait so much more bearable. Whatever an "Intermediate Point" is, I hope it doesn't sit in Wenatchee too long. It's only about a 4-hour drive from Vancouver, BC. Hopefully it'll get here before the Jul 6 ETA.

An Intermediate Point is a place for rail cars to be transferred from train to train, and/or a place to have the train/cars change directions to get to it's final destination. Some are also like an Intermodal Yard to where vehicles are transferred from train to truck for delivery to the dealers.

I have a SE w/ the 201A + sports package that was built in 6/2011.

I can confirm it has the following springs after I checked the "still vistable" barcode tags on the springs themselves.

 

• BV61-5310-NG* Left Front Coil

• BV61-5310-NG* Right Front Coil

• BV61-5560-NF* Left Rear Coil Spring

• BV61-5560-NF* Right Rr Coil Spring

 

I haven't seen any built in 7/2011 yet to see if they were actually changed or not.

Is there a way you can see what struts/shocks you have?
