big brake upgrade for zx-3
 
im a little angry because i had heard from different sources that most of the big brake kits for the focus require the svt spindels. now there arent many kits out there and so im left with either trying to remedy it so i can get a big brake or just get some good ebc rotors and pads and use the stock caliper. anyone have any info or suggestions, please let me know.

Have you checked out BAT Inc.?

They've got upsized brake kits, and I know they addressed the "have to use SVT spindles" issue.

BAT's kits require 16" or larger rims. Not a problem, since I've got the stock 16's, but I want to use 15's in winter for better snow tire options. Oh well.
