st rear disc brakes for ses

Has anyone priced out a kit to replace the dumb rear drum brakes on our focus. I was wanting to convert to the ST rear disc brakes from ford. Anyone knows the parts list for this or maybe even a price?

I contacted b16sir1991 (works at a Ford dealer) about getting just the rear hardware; calipers, spindles and e-brake cables and even at dealer cost (what the dealership would pay) they would be about $800 whereas he could sell you the entire SVT kit for about the same.

Your best bet would be contacting Jeremy at Focus Salvage (CDSilver5DoorSVT on here) and see if he can get any...I just bought a set of rear SVT disc brakes (same as the ST) for $450 shipped.

The SVT kit has everything you need to fit the SVT-spec brakes to a 2000-4 Focus; an '05 doesn't need to swap out the front spindles since they already use the same style front spindles as the SVT.

is it possible to just swap the whole rear-end suspension of the SVT into the rear, and call it a day? you'll have the swaybars, and rear brakes.

Not worth the effort...the swaybar is extremely easy to replace, and the rear disc brakes aren't exactly hard. There's 4 bolts and two rivets that hold the drum brakes to the control arm, drill out the rivets and remove the bolts and the whole assembly drops off the arm. Far far easier than removing the entire rear suspension dropout, and moreover it wouldn't require an alignment afterwards.
