Yeah, me too. I need money, so I should sell them but I've been wanting rear disks for so long that I might try to figure out a way to keep them. Needless to say, I'm probably going to have some other items for sale REAL soon!

So does that mean you're gonna be able to hook us up with cheap ammo too?? lol I hear disc brakes are nice, but my personal thinking is that most of the brake power comes from the front wheels so it shouldn't make that much of a difference.

Congrats on both! Hope you get the job (or any job for that matter).

And I second the cheap ammo part. I could use some 40 s&w. lol

Haha, it's a government plant, supplying to military mainly.

My car stops good, I guess, I just hate drums. Disks look much nicer and are earier to maintain. The thing about these rear disks are that they are designed to work with the stock front brakes, so they won't over-power them. Unlike the SVT rear disks on a standard focus.

Found an oil leak today... when I noticed I was a quart low. I don't trust my jack enough to do a thorough inspection and I need an oil change anyways, so I'll just have someone else find it lol. Hopefully it's just a broken oil pan seal and not a crankshaft seal.
