There is NO Problem.

What kind of Focus do you have?
Either way, you don't NEED Springs, though GOOD Springs are a decent investment, even if it's only the SVT Springs for $100 for all 4.
Granted, bar and springs are inter-related, but a new bar does NOT Necessitate new springs.
BTW, are you talking Front, Rear, or Both Bars?

Also, the "Connections" or "Endlinks" are not part of the bar itself.
You CAN have bad endlinks or bushings, and your bar be in fine shape.
You may still want a different size bar, BUT, you CAN have bad endlinks, independent of whatever bars you have.

He means, do you plan on autocrossing or road-racing? Or just spirited driving?

You don't need spings when doing bars, but remember, springs are more effective in reducing sway than a sway bar; a sway bar is more of a tuning component.

You may want to consider the Progress rear anti-sway bar kit which is now on sale for $119.95 plus shipping at www.newedgeperformance.com.

Easy to install compared with kits that require a front sway bar replacement(like the Eibach kit, front bar is a "bear" to replace).

I hope this helps.
