Just got my big box o' parts from BAT with the SVT brake swap! In an hour, I got the passenger side installed and by golly ... what a difference! I'm glad they fit under the SVTC wheels! I guess the "hardest" part of the whole deal was getting the axle nut off. I was able to press the spindle into the knuckle pretty easily and everything installed very easily.

I'm very impressed with how quickly BAT shipped the parts and Ford impressed me as well by shipping calipers preloaded with pads, their boxes/shipping pieces were robust, and everything, so far, has bolted up easily. Looks like I'll be doing axles with the new suspension in the upcoming month. I can't wait to get the brakes bled and bedded in!
