found this on ebay, seems awfully cheap for what it is, $200 ? usually big brake kits run from about $900+, considering maybe buying it, but i am very sketical of it because of the price. I've never heard of anyone upgrading the SVT brakes anyways, would it even be worth the money if i did buy it?

Its not really worth it- the SVT brakes already outbrake serious sports cars. Also, a Focus hardly weighs enough to warrant 13in brakes- you would barely get enough heat in them. Theres no point in getting bigger brakes if the stockers can already lock up the tires easy enough- if you autox, concentrate on stickier tires before big brakes.

is Baer a good quality company?? i dont know to much about brake companies to know if they are

Yeah Baer, Wilwood, Brembo all have good reputations. I think this might be a scam though BMX.

Baer is an excellent brake company but not as good as Brembo[:)~]
And yes this deal seems way to good to be true. I have a feeling he would nail you on the shipping costs since he doesn't want to list the price.

definatley a scam..............don't know if anyone else noticed this "Brand new front brake conversion kit for ford focus SVT 1998-2002" there's no such thing as a 1998, 1999, 2000, or 2001 SVT focus.............

yeah i noitice in the description they dont bring up the fact that it is a baer set

I dont think theres anything wrong with Baer. I've always understood them to be one of the best, like Wilwood and Brembo

Baer is a really good company, but yea, im thinkin its a scam of somekind, and i did notice the 98-02 SVT, when 02 was the only year in there they made the svt, well i think ill pass on this, thanks for the input guys. Still thinkin of buying Baer drill/slot front OEM replacement rotors tho.
