    This may have been covered already, but I've been out of autocross since 2010 because we lost our really good local venue.  That venue is back, so I might be prepping my car for GS.

    2013 Focus ST has Konis and Bilsteins available.  I own a 2014.  The difference is Ford changed the front springs and spring perch for 2014+ and neither Koni nor Bilstein seem eager to make a new model.

    Can I change out my current suspension with that of a 2013 model and be class legal?

    No, the springs are different this making it illegal. Pro parts will make a set and install into stock housings. That’s currently your best bet.

    Alas why I'm really not all that stoked to get back into SCCA. The rules are just plain stupid. It's not like this is the brake change between 2013-2014 and 2015+.
