The motor doesn't care what brakes you use.

TheGlassMaker Yea they have the 2.3 in them. They don't stand out in a crowd like the new ones do, unless they have the SAP package.

You just have to look for the ST badge.


SAP package.

Duratech ST? I didnt ever know those existed...

felixthecat Checkout the wrecking yards for the '05-'07 st set up= 10'' disc's. You'd think FRPP's would come out w/ the 10'' kit, for the earlier cars.

Junkyard, BST or $1000+ kits from overpriced aftermarket companies?
