2012 Rear Disc Brakes

Does anyone have a 2012 with rear disc brakes? if so, please post some good upclose shots of how they are attached. I need pics of the back side where the hub bearing is as well. I am working on a project.

Thanks,
Spray

It's probably similar to the previous gen's rear disc swap. You will need a hub, spindle, calipers, brake hose, rotors and some pads.
Oh and an ebrake cable

You will have to remove the drum and hub and put all the disc stuff together on it. It's fairly straightforward

This car is actually showing to be much less of a pain than the older ones to swap. The master cylinder, unitized hub bearing, parking brake cables, and the rear trailing arms are the exact same on the ones with disc brakes or drum brakes. My only question at this time is how they mount to the trailing arm. I may just stop by a local dealer but the rear disc setup is rare on the 2012. That is why I was asking if someone on here had one. With this said for all the correct brand new parts from the dealer retail cost will be around $720. Being a general manager of a repair facility I get cost of parts!

It is time for an update on this... it is actually an easier procees and not as many parts are changed as the ptior years have been. Here is the parts list and list price for what is needed.

Front caliper CV6Z-2552-A $77.45 core $50.00 qty: 1
Front caliper CV6Z-2553-A $77.45 core $50.00 qty: 1
Caliper bracket CV6Z-2B582-a $26.24 qty: 2
Mounting bolts W700684-S442 $1.68 qty: 4
Backing plates AV6Z-2C028-A $16.60 qty: 2
Brake pad set CV6Z-2200-A $44.78 qty: 1
Brake rotor CV6Z-2C026-A $27.98 qty: 2

Total w/o tax and paying for the core (you will have to because they will not take your drum set up for cores) is $448.04


The fun part is what I am working on now... Complete bolt on 4 wheel disc brake conversion with a new bolt pattern... 5X114.3 (what Ford should have done)! Right now the only part I have not confirmed are the caliper fitments for the front and rear. I will have this locked down as soon as I can.
