Why are your drums noisy? If they make noise something is wrong.

I did this on my old car and I am pretty sure its possible on the 08-11 focus. Somebody posted about it not long ago, I am not sure if there is a kit or if one of the older kits can be used.

I would love to do it but for my old car it cost me $48 from the junk yard for both hubs. This would cost a little bit more.
