I got the kit from Levittown Ford for Christmas. It was fun and just email Mike in the online parts department. He's cool and he's helpful. I will definitely post pics when i get home tonight.

Really? You just got a full rear brake kit from him and you installed? Do you have a Manual or Auto SE? I'm in Selden NY so I'd be able to grab it from Levittown - How much did everything come out to (parts of course)??

I have a Metallic Blue 2012 Auto SE. I work down in Patchogue and live in Coram. The whole order was $591 and there was some parts missing, the 4 shiny bolts that hold the caliper to the rest of the car. they were less than $20 from Napa auto parts and you'll need brake fluid.

Ha ha - Local guy huh? Cool! I work around DPA train station - I'll definitely look into that; guess I'll have to specify that mine is a Manual and see if there's anything different... something tells me the Parking Brake cable *might* be different, but that's good to know!

The parking brake is the same. Its a real pain in the a** to change. You'll also need those TorX sockets.

That's awesome - thanks for the details and the part numbers. Where did you get the calipers from? Also, did you need to change the wheel hub assemblies?
