The RS dust shields won't fit a non RS. Odd right? 14+ ST dust shields will. I had to trim mine just slightly.

That is a good reason. The ST shields fit my SE without issue, I assumed the RS would be the same on the front. Weird that the calipers bolt on but the shields do not.

Slightly different knuckles. The bolt holes for the RS heat shields are in a different place.

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.)
Yeah I have 17's on mine stock so I shouldnt have an issue. Just got new rubber all around, time to do the brakes next.

Cars just hit 50k and suspension is next on the list.

From my understanding, these are the parts for the pre-2014 320mm

BRCF227 - LH Caliper
BRCF226 - RH Caliper
BRRF291 - Brake Disks x2
BRF34 - Brake Pads x2
2B292 - Brake Caliper Bracket x2
2B486 - Brake Caliper Spring x2
2K005 - Splash LH
2K004 - Splash RH

and 2014+ 335mm

BRCF227 - LH Caliper
BRCF226 - RH Caliper
BRRF361 - Brake Disk x2
BRF1496 - Brake Pad x2
BRBCF33 - Brake Caliper Support x2
2B486 - Brake Caliper Spring x2
2K005 - Splash LH
2K004 - Splash RH

I'm just using VIN's from 2013 and 2015 ST's pulled from Google and entering them into Ford Parts.

Also, pulled from the ST forum. Looks like the RS Brembos will fit behind the Ti Premium wheels w/ spacer.

Hello, I would like to revive this thread by asking you some help to identify car parts needed for upgrading to 320mm brakes.
In my country, there are not so many STs, and searching the caliper codes found here I found that the exactly same number is mounted on Ford Kuga, respectively BV61-2B302 (left) and BV61-2B294 (right). Is there any chance that calipers with this code to be different on EU market than US?
Also, I am not able to exactly identify the equivalent codes you posted in the first post and the last one. For this job I would need calipers and caliper brackets, besides discs and pads. Can you attach a close photo of the caliper code and bracket code, so it would be easier to identify in my country?! (Or, at least, full production code) Thank you!
