What is the purpose for that? You'd have a lot more strut & spring option's w/ the '05 spindle.

Hi guys, new member here, i have a strange question, is there a mustang year i could use the strut/knuckle hub setup from on a focus when i do a v8 rwd conversion to get a 114.3 bolt pattern and lose the hub with splines, or does any of the mazda range fit, the focus is going to be an 03 based on the european 03/04 focus rs to make an rs8 replica

just getting all the info needed at the moment, went to kugel komponents a few years back and test drove their red one, but only now got to a position to be able to build my own, want to use the RS shell as its 2.5 inches wider than the stock shell, so i can use the wider 5 lug axle with abs, this is why i would like to know if the mustang struts and knuckles will fit the focus.

Brake Swap

I have an 01 ZX3 stock brake setup. i am wanting to go to the larger 278mm setup on the front, i know the info is all here on this thread but im a little slow at piecing it all together in one short answer.. so if someone can help me by simplifying it for me it would be nice. what exactly do i need to do to make it happen. and can you include the year of the part needed. also im buying it all new so whatever it takes to make it happen, the only parts being reused are the control arms but im putting in new ball joints.
i dont know what its called but i also need to know if i need to use a different part with this new setup or if the old one is the same heres the pic of it..
EXAMPLE---CALIPERS/05

Calipers/?
Rotors/?
Ball Joints/?
Spindels/?
Brake Lines/?
