Looking good!

Btw, do you have any idea of the cross compatibility of the earlier Mazda 3's and the 2000-2004 zx3 rear suspension?

I believe that the Mazda 3 and Focus have the Ford Global C1 platform. I will check into it. I know that the control arms and alignment kits are the same but I am sure the spring rates and dampers are different. What are you trying to achieve?

Well, since Ford decided to stop making the rear caliper mounting bracket for the SVT it means no more rear drum to disc conversions. Nobody has any Ford SVT kits either. So I was thinking Mazda 3 rear disc conversion instead.

Sorry about taking so long to get back on this matter. The Mazda rear disc brake swap should work. There are a couple differances. The Mazda is a 5X114.3 bolt pattern and the brake hydraulic system is different. With your time and $$$ I am sure it can be done. The front steering knuckles should swap right over. Then you would open a much larger wheel option as well.
