Hey guys, I do a lot of machining, and have started to make some parts for the older focus. I would like to do some stuff for the newer focus and the ST. Anyone got any ideas of some stuff you guys need??

Steering rack bushings which I know you're working on
Solid rear shock mounts
Shifter ends
What do the shock mounts look like?

How about an fittings for the steering rack? Dom used to make them a while ago. It would have to be machined for an o ring and tapered. Heres some pics. I would buy 2 sets right away if these were done.

Those are already on the list! I just need to clip the lines out of a car at the yard for measurements. I made an AN setup for my car, but I part of the old line, and brazed AN ends onto it. I want to make a full bolt in kit too.

Oh please do! I was going to do the same and braze a set on to mine, but a true bolt on fitting would be amazing.

Took a look at the bushes this weekend on the rack...no way I can get a measurement on them without dropping the subframe and removing the rack. There's a guy on the ST forum I PMd who has a totaled ST that could hopefully check.

Sorry about being slow to finish the fittings. I have been putting all my energy into planning my wedding.
