Its not one piece. The spindle spuds are press in. You could use your ones off the drum spindles.

Looks like they are a little different each side.

No, they are 1 piece, no pressed in spindle, no using your drum spindles.

It has been discontinued, but it did sell for around $450.

You can also use a '05-'07 ST or advance trac spindle also. The SVT bracket is what moves the caliper up .05'' higher to clear the 11'' rotors over the 10'' ST rotors. Thats the basic difference between the 10'' & 11'' rear disc brakes.

Hate to burst Lappracings bubble but the SVT rear caliper mounting bracket is a completely seperate piece from the spindle. The caliper mounting bracket is what Ford discontinued. This bracket mounts to the 2 holes at the top of the spindle and holds the caliper. I have a pair laying around. Came with a used SVT rear disc kit I bought. Planning to buy new spindles and hubs with bearings b4 I install the kit but that might be a few months from now. I could maybe let you borrow them from me for your measurements and work up.

The SVT and the ST spindles are the same (identical). The Calipers are the same (identical). The only difference is the caliper bracket. It is actually part of the caliper. The mounting holes on the SVT bracket are in a different location, spaciing the caliper out further to clear the larger rotor.

SVT calipers have been discontinued, ST or Advancetrac are still available. Spindles are still available (from Ford only) and cost around $100 each.

The top caliper is an SVT caliper, the middle is an ST caliper. In the bottom picture, you will see the gold colored "Bracket". That is the only difference between the SVT and ST caliper.
