    2015 Focus st , why cant i find koni yellows for my year car?

    Ive had a set of bc br coilovers since October (15) now one is busted, front left , i always felt they ride hard with the setting set at halfway especially on rough roads they are washboardish. Im ready to pull them and go with koni yellows and a set of steeda lowering springs. But for the life of me i cant find koni yellows for my year 2015. They say 2013's only wtf are they different? What about bilsteins or ford racing struts... Im ready to order..

    You can buy the Koni's for a 2012-2013, but your springs have to match those years as well. There isn't a strut option for the midyear 2014+ models yet.

    Case in point, I have a 2015 as well, bought KW springs for a 2012/2013, and will buy a strut set made for the 2012/2013 model years, to bolt into my 2015.

    Update got my 2013 Koni yellows installed on my 2015 st3, and i gotta say not only does it ride better it actually handles better then my previouse bc br coilovers.. Rides smoother then stock with out the bounciness of the stock set up. Also had holes drilled thru the strut tower brace and its plastic cover for easy access of adjustment. It sits the same ride height as the coilers now, so the steeda springs should settle into a slighlty lower position...

    Everything you need is here at this link. just make sure you choose the spring isolator without the touring suspension! All the other oem parts are the same for 2014 and 2015.

    SUSPENSION COMPONENTS for 2013 Ford Focus

    Then go to steeda and order 2013 koni yellows and 2013 lowering springs and your done!

    Thanks for the thread — Just ordered me some '13 B8's & Sportlines as well as the spring isolators. Now I just need a weekend in central texas that isn't raining.

    How is it mid 2016 already and no 2014-2016 Koni yellows yet? I came across a 6mo old used set of 2014 Steeda springs for pennies and didn't want to install them without some new struts. Wish I could use the before mentioned 2013 swap but that would just defeat the purpose of using the cheap 2014 springs I acquired. Is there any hope of Koni actually making the 2014+ set? Or should I just bite the bullet and start from scratch again? lol damn
