Second photo of the hubs as you said can be found all day long from Ford or parts stores.
The last photo of the caliper mounting bracket is what Ford discontinued making therefore eliminating the rear disc kits and forcing everyone to go used or aftermarket.

These are the hard ones to find:
Where you can find these at most part stores:
normally when these are sold used, they keep the two parts bolted together (which im sure is due to that spindle nut being torqued to ~175lbs)
I think slipster was only referring to this bracket, the caliper bracket:

I bought a reconditioned caliper for my right rear from O'Reilly's for $100 ($40 of that for the core) They were the only ones close that had one in stock and also the best price. This was just last Thursday btw and i had a road trip planned on Friday.
I had called Napa first but didnt have it in stock, the closest they had one was in a warehouse in Phili but I needed it sooner (also, they were more expensive and wanted to charge me freight on it.) The one i picked up from O'Reilly was the same Lucas stamped caliper that I replaced. I still need to take back my old one for that core charge
also, found this thread to be interesting (especially John Vanlandingham's posts)
They also mention speedway recyclers in there, they are showing a SVT LR HUB/DISK for $105 for you guys piecing a set together.

SD_ZTW, thanks for the great info on how to tell the brackets apart. Now I know exactly what to look for.
slipster17, thank you as well. I'll be heading to NAPA tomorrow first thing. I never would have guessed I could just go buy the stuff, SVT rears always show up on the forums when I'm broke lol.

Just an update on aftermarket status if anyone is interested:
Autozone and Advance do not specify separate part numbers between SVT and non SVT rear calipers. And the ones the system says fit the SVT do not because that lower braket is incorrect.
NAPA DOES specify a separate part number for the SVT calipers and they DO have the correct brackets. I just picked up a pair this morning and they are both re-manufactured Lucas calipers (who supplied the OEM Ford ones) and the lower brackets are both stamped with the 'FORD' tool mark.

|felixthecat||I upgraded my brakes w/ TCE's brackets & Wilwood 11.75'' rotors. The stock 10'' brackets work better w/ these brackets than the svt ones=you'd need to grind a little off the svt brackets.|

Yeah, you stumbled upon something that I've found out (rather inconveniently) in the past couple days. lol
There were 2 basics types of the rear calipers as found on the Focus - which you have illustrated nicely.
The SVT style ones have those lower bolt holes to clear the larger rotors.
The other calipers you have shown are found on the regular Focus' from 00-07 that came with the AdvanceTrac option (rear discs) as well as on the Focus ST sedan

I found both cheaper and more expensive. The cheapest was 50 bucks for 260mm,
but need a rebuild I think.
There are still 280mm caliper/bracket assemblies for sale, but the prices seem to be
This is the cheapest SVT one I found:
*Note the positions of the bracket holes for 280mm above rather than 260mm below:
(Links won't last long the prices for these rebuilt SVT calipers with brackets were
147, 122, 122, shipped)
And yes, those prices are for each!!!
Good luck with the searching!
