Ahh yes I am too very curious to how much this conversion kit would cost. Not to mention, I have a set of 17 Inch Rims and would like to redo the whole brake system, Discs in front and drums in the back is the curent setup, any suggestions or links?

Hmmm A grand huh.. Any after market kits suchs as Brembro etc that do the convesion as well. A grand isn't to bad for the ability and the look. I just don't see why FORD cheaps out on drums. Mind you it's not like the ZETEC was built for speed. Ahhhh decent little pocket rocket but the imports just have more gear and juice to start with..

Thanks all.


Now the BAT Inc setup, whats the diff to the front brake set up??

Can you post the URL??

I think that Baer has a big brake conversion for the front, i think its 12 or 13 inch rotors!! That'd be bitchin compared to the stock 8 or 9 inch rotors....
