Rear disc conversion
I found a focus sedan with rear disc brakes and im gunna pull the roaders, calipers. What all do i need off car for brakes to function including ebrake.

Unless you are constantly stopping from 100+ mph you are better off burning the money youd spend in your driveway.

I know i dont really need rear discs. Just like the look of rear dics thats why i asked what is needed to do swop.

rear disc conversion
In addition to the rotors and calipers, you will need the rear stub axles (spindles), caliper mounting brackets, dust shields, and ebrake cables. Richard Bridgette, Huntersville, NC.

Cool thanks man

yea I converted mine last year on a previous focus I had & the whole process only took about 4 hours, fairly simple to swap over as the stub axles are only held on by 4 bolts, the hardest part I found was removing the old handbrake cable & fitting the other.

good luck with the swap

Put some cash down, so they save them for you. Also a great time to add SS line's too.
