Think everything has been pick through long time ago when it comes to svt.

Knuckle is what I meant. The first non-machined ones I produced were on the non SVT cars. I'm reasonably certan that SVT only added the bigger rotors and caliper carriers to the same knuckle. I can't say what year the change was for sure but I'm certain you don't need to pull them off the SVT to get the part.

Know it's been years but I'm pretty sure this is accurate info.

*Looking for some castings to see. I confess I may be wrong on this too, just know that I moved away from the machine work deal. Can't tell you on the Contour stuff but the hub bore, stud circle and back spacing for the hat/caliper will be the same.
