Ok who's the man for Ka Ford Suspension Race Parts and set up. I'm Hill Climbing one this Season (2015). So it needs to be done soon. Am in Hobart but getting across the ditch to Vic is no problem if needed.

Ebay UK is where you need to look, SPAX do a coilover setup for them, so you may want to try suspension wholesalers at Penrith as they do Spax gear.

But a car that sold such low numbers in AUS, after market parts are scarce, performance parts, non existant.

I worked at a Ford dealer here when the Ka was new.....didn't sell many at all....I remember a red one had about 2 birthdays before being sold.
But like JS said, better off lookin in England for go-fast stuff.
The engine in a Ka looked like a Kent engine too.....IIRC.

Not so much suspension, but mondeo (HA-HE) and cougar front brakes bolt on to the standard knuckle,

I understand the 4 cly can be easily swapped out with a larger duratec engine too,

A 2.0l in one of these would go pretty damn well.

The 2.0 "zetec" from a mondeo or focus bolts up to the stock transmission, lots of guys in the UK do it to them.
