2009 Focus SES Coupe Drum to Disk - ABS? Want pics?

When I do the install interested in some pics or has it been done?

Did some searching, didn't hear anything specific that ABS won't port over. I'm hoping it will, I do like it. Either way when I get the parts I'll see what I'm working with.

So my right rear bearing is on the way out, but honestly I'm certain the auto adjusters are seized, so while in the neighborhood might as well do a rear brake job.

Car has a 160,000 miles, the name of the game is cheap, cheap, cheap. Living in Michigan the rust is bad, maybe only a few more years left on the car, but I hate drum brakes HATE them. The auto adjusters are always seized up, the kits never come with them, dealer always wants way too much so your suck lubing and cleaning, and the rust so much darn rust anyway I'm rambling /gripe session


so here is my part list (chock full of Ebay specials as they were running a 15% off) mostly based off a forum post from MassiveSpeed "New Massive Focus Rear Disk Conversion kit facts and info"

$175 MABK'16441, hardware and brackets
$ 47 2012 Ebay Calipers (I tossed a $6 in for a 6m warranty, cause they are going to leak)
$ 36 Solid rotors (2! for $36, I'm sure they are prewarped)
$ 40 Hub and bearing (it claims compatibility with ABS cars, we shall see if there is a tone ring, eeeebay)
$ 20 Ceramic pads
$ 44 Parking brake cable

Call it $360? Add in $100 for getting to buy real parts over again, but I have been surprised.

Pretty sure pics have been done, but there can never be enough visual aids on a forum. Be sure to host them on Imgur or something instead of photo*****et like every one else did.

Edit: see itís so bad even the forum censors itís name

Sounds like a plan. Might be a week or two. Did the engine mounts this week. Waiting on the parts to come in and have a valve cover gasket, new plugs, and MTX fluid swap in line first.

Instead of pics made some videos. First go at recording so it's rough, but I hope it helps:

Months late to the party, but for the next person: massive speed has a post with all the info you need on parts:
https://massivespeedforums.com/new-m...t17130155.html

The only issue I had after a few months was a moaning sound when it's wet out on first few rotations, after a brake apply it goes away trivial issue in my book.
