2002 ZX3 - Rear Disc Brake Conversion (Ford Motorsport Kits ?)

Ford Motorsport use to make a complete SVT rear disc brake kit for the focus - but now that I am ready to buy one - I can't seem to find one - Does anyone know where these kits can be purchased?

Thanks!

That kit sold. Ford discontinued the caliper mounting bracket for the rear brake kits. If younwant Ford rear discs brakes then you need to check out the bst forums for one to pop up. Then if you get the used rear kit and need to replace anything like spindles, hubs(hubs w/bearings) or calipers you can as Ford still makes those parts.

my zx3 came stock with rear disc brakes. the reason for the rear disc brakes was only if your focus had the advanced traction and stability control. most of the time this was an svt option but i think the previous owner ordered this option on the zx3 and it came with advanced trac.

The adapter bracket is the only thing that ford has discontinued? The advanced traction option must have been a rare option because I have yet to see rear disc brakes on a non SVT.

Guys - Thanks for confirming that the kit is discontinued. I will hunt around for a kit from some supplies - maybe someone has one on the shelf that did not sell. I will also see what the individual parts sell for from Ford.

From memory, I should need the following.

Spindles
Hubs
Calipers
Mounting brackets
E-Brake cable pair
Rotors and pads (I can get these aftermarket - probably cheaper than Ford)

Iirc hubs w/bearings about $85 each, spindles about $95 each and ebrake cable set about $45-$50. Don't know calipers. The above prices are from Tousley Ford over on FJ.
