If you can score the entire suspension assembly, just do that.
Swaps in 30 minutes per side that way.
No need in worrying about what works and what doesn't.

I've already purchased a pair of new rear SVT calipers, new brake cables, rotors, and took donor rear SVT brake parts (hub, spindle, brake lines, backplates) off a partially stripped SVT in the junkyard.

Now it's time for the fronts. Given this is an '05, what is the real facts on what parts I need to put the larger SVT front rotors (and calipers) on this car - I've read that they bolt on, and other times that they dont and need the spindle changing.
