The knuckles are NOT the same.
The SVT knuckles are bigger and heavier duty all around. The have different calipers and thus different types of mounting for calipers. They are not compartible with the smaller standard focus calipers at all. The caliper design is completely different.
The SVT front rotors are 12.0," not 11.8" as was said, I think.
The standard focus are ~10.xx" and way to small.
The 05+ ST knuckles are similar to the SVT but still not as reinforced. They have the newer, bracket-style mounting of the larger calipers.
