I have 2000 zx3 I returned the coilovers months ago. They were cheap eBay ones. I don't have the cash to do what I want family and all so most my stuff is low grade or junkyard finds lol. Besides the svt wheels I bought off a guy.

04 and older knuckles will replace what you had stock.
If you can find a set of SVT knuckles in the junk yard, that would be a nice score too.
Anything 05+ will have the bigger lower BJ.

If you dont have SVT brakes though you wont want the SVT knuckles... other than you can sell them for likely more than you got them at the junk yard for. The brake caliper and mounting is different for the larger rotor. but a good upgrade if you do find it.

you will want the 00-04 standard knuckle if you dont want to spend any more money.

Svt are non existant here in colorado. As far as junkyard finds. If they were here ID take everything. Because I do want rear disc and the bigger front brakes as I already have 17svt wheels. But conflicted with continuing to mod my car when I.could just buy an svt. Been trying to.find someone.on here who.is local.to help guide me.

Filling out your profile with an accurate location would help.

Top left User CP, the select the next top left menu option of "Edit Your Details". In the top feild it has city and state.

Colorado is a big state.. :-). there are peeople in Denver and Colorado Springs that I am aware of on this or the Facebook page. but that is but one location in a large state. There is one also that was north west corner but has moved and also fallen off in activity from what I have seen.

More details the better we can help or provide direction.

But what do you mean by guide you? guide you on how to do the swap? What cars may be for sale? There are limited SVT's in the rocky area. I ended up flying out to Michigan from utah to pick up my SVT. There are hundreds of build threads and how to's on this forum. It also goes a long way showing that you have invested of your own time and effort before asking a question in which people are now going to spend of their own time to respond to.

Massive makes a bigger brake kit for the Focus, mk1 and mk2. Includes rear disc brakes and is compatible without any modification. It costs roughly the same as what you'd pay for a used/rebuilt SVT kit front and rear.

Also, while it is a relatively small number when compared to the standard Focus, Ford built nearly 15,000 SVT Focus vehicles. I'm sure you can find one in all of Colorado, lol.

SVT kits are getting low in price.

Massive Kits: MABK'3422 - Massive Brake System Components - Massive Hardcore Racing Performance Parts - Massive Speed System - Ford Focus Specialists

The brackets and parts are $120 and a OEM take offs with the kit are $460 and new is $610. Some SVT brake kits are now going for $200 ish.

Its hard finding SVT's in the junk yards. I visit junk yards (about 4 different ones a few times a year or more) and only ever have seen 1 SVT and 1 foci with the Advance Track rear brakes. There is a surprising lack of SVT's in salvage or junk yards in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado area.

The brakes included in the Massive kit are new or oem take-off parts. They are not the same as the SVT kits.
The front brakes are from 13-14 Mustangs and the rear brakes are from 12-18 Focus. Higher quality and better performance than the SVT.

The reason I even bring it up is because it is a fully spec'd kit that will fit any older Focus with zero modification or difficulty. The same can't be said of the SVT kit, if you can even find it.
