How to, disc convert all around?

I want to convert 2005 SES to discs all around. Anyone know where to buy rear drum to disc conversions?

Moved to Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension


You will not find a "kit" new, they are long discontinued. Best bet is do as Felix mentioned above.

There are usually some listed here:

Here is the Ford how-to:

Well, as I understand only specific parts are no longer in production for the rear discs. The dust shields are difficult to find as well as the caliper mount brackets, but other than that all of the other hardware required can be purchased new AFAIK.

Yes, for the rear all parts can still be purchased new from Ford except for the caliper mounting bracket(required part) and the dust shields(not required). As far as SVT front kit goes there are actually only a few bnib complete kits left. Cfm does not have any on hand. They would have to try and get one but it would cost you more from them. Instead get it from Steve at Automation ford(a sponsor on FF). Should be $475+ shipping. Other than that the bst section as mentioned is your best bet.

I might have to find my old focus in the junk yard and pull my svt brakes off her.

Just keep an eye out in the for sale section here. Rear SVT kits pop up almost every month. I picked mine complete kit up, brand new, with red stuff pads from the for sale section here for $375 shipped.
