Yeah, I thought the pictures would help people to better visualize the size increase. Which might help them decide if they want to do this upgrade.

I'd think the threads would be the same on the st calipers vs the regular calipers.

The earlier svt & regular calipers use the same threads. The only other style to upgrade to is a banjo style hoses/fittings.

The ST front caliper threads and the 'regular' front caliper threads have the same threading. I found some front and rear Goodridge S.S. hoses for my 2012 Ti and had them installed a couple of years ago. When I installed the ST calipers these same S.S. hoses threaded in with out any problems or leaks! Since the rear disk brakes are the same for all Focus' I would say that any S.S. hose set should fit the rears without any issues.

I talked to one of the CFM guys about the S.S. hoses when I bought my pads and rotors from them. He thought that the only difference between what I have installed and ST specific hoses might be their length. As I stated above I didn't have any problems (well at least so far) using the Goodridge S.S. hoses already installed.

You'd be using the caliper slide pins that came w/ the caliper as you'd be getting a st caliper w/ brackets. Use the oem bracket bolts. I'd also upgrade the lines to SS since your there & doing it.
