Spindles they still sell separately lol. The knuckle is the issue. Gonna research to see if there is another knuckle/spindle option to use for the 00-04 cars. I believe on the 05+ the strut bore on the knuckle is larger. Not sure on the ball joints. Know they went larger at some point. As for junkyards....maybe but doubt it in my area. Think everything has been pick through long time ago when it comes to svt.

Knuckle is what I meant. The first non-machined ones I produced were on the non SVT cars. I'm reasonably certan that SVT only added the bigger rotors and caliper carriers to the same knuckle. I can't say what year the change was for sure but I'm certain you don't need to pull them off the SVT to get the part.

Know it's been years but I'm pretty sure this is accurate info.

*Looking for some castings to see. I confess I may be wrong on this too, just know that I moved away from the machine work deal. Can't tell you on the Contour stuff but the hub bore, stud circle and back spacing for the hat/caliper will be the same.

Been a few weeks since this was first posted. Wanted to remind everyone that I'll keep the sale price up for a couple more weeks yet. I figure there are some new owners out there and the market for these kits remains rather small yet. But! If you are a new gen owner and are looking for a great deal, now's the time!

in 05 they used the upgraded knuckle but it had the 00-04 strut size, in 06 they changed everything around. A 05 may have the holy grail youre looking for

I know it creates hell on rotor centering....one requires a hat spacer, the other doesn't.

I'm interested in the rear kit, not sure if my ST rear brakes are the same as SVT. I'll have to research.

I believe that is correct info. The difference between this and the TCE versions however is that we have gone one step more and put an 11.75 rotor with this. I'd not suggest that without a proper front big kit for balance purposes however.
