You can call Ford Racing's Hotline at 1-800-367-3788 and they can give you the part number for the brake pads. Also if you order the kit the part numbers for the calipers are written on the boxes, should be able to cross check them to find out what the pads are. If you need more help in this department I can do a little research for you. This is an answer I should know as I have this kit on my car.

The rally kit uses 05-07 rotors and pads up front and 02-04 SVT rotors and pads for the rear. You'll just have to mix and match parts, but they are all standard parts so you won't have to worry about any special order or custom parts.

Call Mike at Hilbish Ford. He's a sponsor on the forums here, look in the sponsors section. He should be able to hook you up with the rally brake kit for around $800. I don't have the

im just curious if having the same size brakes in the back as the front makes the back a little to grabby

I have had absolutely no problems on my car. Brakes amazingly well, vast improvement over the stock set-up.

You have to remember that the caliper pistons on the front are bigger than the pistons on the rear calipers. Makes it a well balanced system.

Something else you MAY be able to do is upgrade the front calipers to those found on the 08+ Focus. Those calipers are much larger, but they will still fit under 15s.
