The OE high-rate spring in your MK3 Ford Focus ST or RS is what causes such a vague and disconnected clutch pedal feel. The spring causes a non-linear and confusing pedal feel, making it difficult to modulate the clutch on your Focus ST or RS. Many Focus owners have found that taking out the stock OE spring will give you somewhat similar results, but most owners fail to realize the prolonged effects of simply taking out your factory OE spring and not replacing it with another spring. By eliminating the clutch spring, your clutch pedal will never fully return to stock position and over time your slave cylinder may begin leaking due to constant pressure on its seals. But don't worry! Steeda has your back. Our Steeda Focus ST/RS Clutch Spring Kit completely replaces the factory spring and is honed in on just the right amount of spring rate to get you the perfect clutch pedal feel you look for in your Focus. This assist spring is manufactured from piano wire that naturally has high tensile strength and high elastic qualities. Our piano wire spring ensures a consistent spring rate and minimal sag even after repeated use. The Steeda Focus Clutch Spring Kit allows you to feel exactly when clutch engages and disengages, making shifting a breeze.

Note: Spring perch (factory perch showed above) is not included. Fits 2013,2014,2015,2016,2017,2018

Is Good
Installation once you get the perch apart is a breeze. Less than 5 min install. Use care not to break the perch when taking it apart. Inspect it and a little bit of lube and common sense/ingenuity goes a long way. Petal feels like it should have from the factory. Second one is on the way for my wife's ST cause she just had to have it after driving mine.

Steeda clutch pedal for Focus ST
Read tons of blogs saying it’s the best update to do on the ST’s. First of all it’s easy to install. Second, I couldn’t feel big difference at all, maybe a very slight difference in pedal effort. But is only $25, so it’s not gonna break the bank. Seen videos with people using a screwdriver and popping it out and almost hitting them in the face with it. Found it easy to remove/install with the pedal pushed down with my hand.

Definitely worth it and needed
After a year of running the stock clutch spring I finally sent it on this upgraded one. It has been the best modification yet definitely made shifting way smoother and manageable.

Not sure why the car doesn’t come stock with this spring. The unreal violent kickback to get the car into first is gone. Every gear shift is linear and smooth. I would not ever go back to the oem spring for any reason outside of selling the car.

Great feel. Big difference
The factory spring made the clutch feel strange. Almost like you encountered 2 separate resistance values. It made the engagement point hard to pin down. This new spring was a pretty easy install. Its a lighter spring and it seems to have fixed the issues with the factory spring. I'm happy with it.

This mod is OK. In my opinion, it makes the clutch pedal lighter and easier to maintain, but does not add to feel, per se. I can grind the clutch easier at its engagement point, but it doesn't help you feel that point. I'm a rev/gear jammer anyway and don't use a lot of clutch, so the mod is meh if you drive like me.

MUCH Better
I really didn't have high expectations, but in stock form I've always thought the clutch has a sort of numbness to it. This took all of 5 minutes to install and WOW it's much more intuitive and gives the pedal a linear response. It doesn't make much of a difference to me when shifting, but I think it feels WAY better when starting from a stop, both during normal driving and launching.

No lies here
Does exactly what it is supposed to do; improves clutch feel. Initially, i wasn't too impressed with the results from the $25 spring.., but after a week of driving, it was determined that it was necessary improvement.

Why wasn't this stock?
Originally my Focus ST clutch was something to get used to. Unlike any clutch I've driven and there's been many! The Focus ST clutch has this really tough spot at the top and a mush puddle at the bottom. This spring took my Focus ST from wildly hard to control the clutch to just like an old 1970's hydraulic clutch. Easy to slip when needed (rarely) and perfectly responsive with the return spring like it should have been. Thank you Steeda, you have saved my clutch leg from much unneeded hassle! If you don't have one of these in your Focus ST, just buy it. I can't say any more than that. Buy it, you will NOT regret it.

Spring change....really?
I don't normally write reviews especially for something as silly as a spring. But this small upgrade changes the entire way that the clutch,the car and your foot work together. If you have an st this is a must do,it's quick,easy,and gives your shift leg abit of a rest. It's really like night and day especially shifting from first and second. Much smoother and less fatigue. I highly recommend this tiny but mighty mod.

Best $20 You'll Spend on you FoST!
I've had it on mine for a couple of months now; it makes the clutch feel normal instead of weird like it is stock.

Definitely make this your first mod!
I installed this last night in my 17' FOST and it completely changed the feel of the clutch! I would recommend this as a must do first mod for new ST/RS owners.

New clutch spring ... feels like new car!
I've heard good things about spring upgrades, but they've always been go to home depot and buy XXX. I heard about this spring upgrade on /r/FocusST and I ordered it right away. After installing, I tried the clutch with my hand & foot without the car on and I was skeptical - it didn't feel very different. Within the first 5 minutes of driving, though, I was so excited about the new feel that I had to (pull over, obviously, and) send my friend a message saying how it felt like a brand new car! I've bolted on everything I can on my car, but I would still say this is in my top 2 favorite upgrades, probably tied with my short throw assembly. I'd easily recommend this to anyone with $25 to spare.
