RS Rear Calipers
Production ST brake rotors
Production RS brake pads
Brake hoses
All needed installation hardware
I didnt even catch that it said ST rotors... Saw the blue caliper and bracket and just assumed that was the end goal was larger rotors. Totally not worth it if you arent changing the rotor diameter. Be better off to just upgrade your existing pads than do the Ford Performance rears. I really cant see this RS caliper/pad setup being an upgrade. The only benefit i could see is if you want your rears to be the same factory blue as the front RS Brembos (although an aluminum colored version of the Brembo's are made as well.)
