Unless you are constantly stopping from 100+ mph you are better off burning the money youd spend in your driveway.

rear disc conversion

In addition to the rotors and calipers, you will need the rear stub axles (spindles), caliper mounting brackets, dust shields, and ebrake cables. Richard Bridgette, Huntersville, NC.

yea I converted mine last year on a previous focus I had & the whole process only took about 4 hours, fairly simple to swap over as the stub axles are only held on by 4 bolts, the hardest part I found was removing the old handbrake cable & fitting the other.

good luck with the swap

Put some cash down, so they save them for you. Also a great time to add SS line's too.
