The pistons are bigger for the svt's vs the '05+ ones & of course on the '00='04 ones.....There are other options out also. What spindles are you starting out with?

If the bore on the caliper is the same then the pistons cant be bigger... can they?

This part appears to be the same gasket kit for both:

Main difference is they mount further out allowing you to use a larger diameter rotor

Trying to identify the spindle/knuckle currently have AP racing brake setup and want to change based on racing class.

The knuckles is completely different from SVT to '00-'04 to '05 to '06-'11.

The dog ears for where and how the caliper mounts is different from SVT and '00-'04.

SVT and '05 are the same Caliper mount point but with different ball joint size ('05 is larger)

'06-'11 is the same ball joint at the 05' and same caliper mount I believe but has a larger strut mount.

There are other threads that go into more depth I think.

Are the non-svt 2000-04 the same knuckle?

Any '00 to '04 that was a NON-SVT used the same knuckle across all trim levels (minus SVT). IIRC.

The '02-'04 SVT is a different Knuckle than any other Foci from '00-'11.
