Also do more research before you go buying parts, I'm sure I could be wrong on something. It's been a while since I've talked about the rally kit lol

You're at an advantage starting from an SVT.

I'd have to switch to an '05 knuckle to keep the same struts, and change to the larger shaft ball joints.

Using that larger brake for a while helps with parts availability, it's not special like the SVT ones.

Here's the interchange thread:

Brake and Suspension Interchange Guide 00-06

This area used to be "Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension" - Wheels & Tires got split off a while back, so we need to look in both sections for questions on how they work together.

I think you'll see that '05 ST isn't the only option for the larger front brakes to bolt onto the SVT.

Luck

Nope - you're reading it as if you didn't have SVT brakes already.

You've already got the right knuckle to bolt the brakes onto.

Caliper, mount & disc.
