this was doing it on my 08 left side, took it in and they fixed it after i took a rep for a drive and let them listen to waht it was doing, well it started doing it on my right side BEFORE i installed my drop, now i am afraid to take it in and have them do it on the right side because of the suspension... anyone know if they would do it after the suspension?

I just created a thread directing FocalJet users to look at this thread within Focal jet. Hopefully the Mods there will make it a sticky.

Thanks for the info. My car only has 500 miles on it (200 are mine) but I'll be paying attention to it.

only if your lug pattern is the same. i had to re look up sine i noticed you were from the UK that the focus is different.

so if your lug pattern on the focus is a 5x114 and hte transits are the 5X114 then yes. i would talk with a local tire shop and find out ezactly your specs..... or do a little looing around on the internet

Anyone who has done the rear disc swap on their 08+ please chime in. I would like to do this on my 09. from what I understand you have to modify some things. I posted a thread on this, but I figured I'd ask in here also. Any pics or tips would be great!!!
