Welcome to FF. You posted in the wrong section= you should be in the suspension/brake section. Lots of info in the stickies above the section your interested in. Your best bet is to look for a '05-'07 ST rear brake set up out of the wrecking yard or the b&S section in this forum.

The ST brakes should fit. The SVT brakes will also fit with a little bit of work. PSUrivie has the full SVT brake setup on his '09.

Only full kit other than used would be an aftermarket "big brake" kit with 12" or larger rotors that'll run you around $700+.

As mentioned check the suspension stickies in that forum and welcome.
