If thats the case, great. I'd for sure get a pr of two piece rotors & ss brake hoses.

The two piece rotors are usually pretty pricey. However I'm all for the ss lines. I'd like to find some just for the fronts.

Yeah, but less then half the weight of the one piece ones...

They also dont clear all 18's either... The factory ST wheels need a 5mm spacer and I dont think the ST Premium wheels work with even 10mm. Good news is that most aftermarket 18's dont seem to have as many issues (I would just check the RS site or find out if the aftermarket wheel is listed as fitting an RS first.) Big brakes need more space, a 4 piston Brembo isnt tiny when fitted to 347mm rotors

I'm disappointed that it's necessary to do this at all; all of my MK1 Focus required the upgrade (SVT) due to warping stock sized rotors on a regular basis. My 1972 Ford Pinto Country Squire Wagon never warped rotors, it needed only to replace pads until the rotor hit its minimum thickness point. The upgrade is for street vehicles, here in San Francisco rotors warp; its just a fact of life on the OEM front rotors. My MK3 needs a rotor machine for the second time in less than 40k miles, while the factory pads have over 50%remaining.

The good news here is that the Ford One project has made swapping parts much easier; thus, a MK3 SE owner could upgrade from the 278mm rotor all the way up to the 335mm ST rotor used since mid-2014, if he/she wants to without having to swap the spindle/knuckle assembly and the additional costs associated with that. As more Escapes/ST get salvaged, the used parts availability will get better and costs will go down to perform an upgrade. Right now salvage yards around San Francisco are asking $60 and up for a ST/Escape caliper w/o the mounting bracket. In a most picknpull's calipers are $25 exchange + $8 for a bracket.

It might even be possible to use the 335mm ST rotors; the Centric catalogue shows that the 10416450 pad fits both the 320mm rotor as well as the 335mm front rotor for the ST; some parts catalogue show that the BRCF227/226 calipers (which are the ones I have for the 2013 ST) are also used on the mid 2014 and up ST models, but, from what I saw yesterday on a vehicle, that did not appear to be the case. If the pads are indeed the same, then it is possible that the 227/226 calipers might work if a different caliper bridge is used. But, I have no interest in doing further research on this.

In a quick measurement check today, I think there might be enough clearance to do the 335mm rotors and still clear a 17" factory wheel and it might even be possible to use 320 upgrade on a 16" factory wheel, but that is an item for someone else to check out.
I know this is a post from about two years ago buuuuuut is the only difference between the 320mm setup and 335mm setup the rotor? Is the braket and caliper the exact same just wrapped around a larger rotor?
Also, you mentioned the same caliper as the Escape... is the ST brake and rotor setup the same as the Escape?? Like, I could buy the Escape front brake setup and swap it directly to my Focus and I will have the same brakes(on the front) as the ST's?

Sorry to bump the thread but curious about what parts are needed to put the st brakes on. Let me know if I have them all. It's time to prep for the mountains this fall.

The calipers you have picked out are for the 14+ ST's, aka the 335mm front rotor (vs the 320mm of the 13's.) They require the use of 17" wheels to clear the brakes vs the smaller 320's that can still fit a 16" oem wheel.

I cant find a mm reference on your rotor's based on the part number. Just confirm that they are the matching 335mm rotors to go with the calipers you have picked out. As long as it says it fits the 15+ ST it should be fine.
Rock auto calls out the mm in several of their rotor offerings, I am a fan of centric stuff. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...hub,rotor,1896

I would also suggest trying to get your stock dust shields to fit to save some money. Not saying they will or wont but worth a shot (i was able to fit my dust shields from my 320mm setup, with some modifications, when i upgraded to the RS brakes/347mm rotors.)

Dust shields are like $10 each, why not do it right?
