Question What Should I Get My Parts From?

I have a 2001 SE. I'm growing tired of changing the wheel cyclinders out. What car make, model, year and parts should I ask for. I can't afford the kit. So I hope to pick them up from a salv. yard.

Make that 150K now on this set-up. 2 sets of discs and three sets of pads ( one used just to get thru winter).. Its been very good to me..

This is the way the focus SHOULD have come :)
