  1. MK4 Focus
    I've got a 2014 Focus Se and i'm looking to convert the rear drums to discs. Does anyone have advice on where to get kits, or any advice in general? Thanks
  2. Brakes, Suspension & Body Chassis
    Hey y'all, I own a [manual] 2012 Focus SE with rear drums and I've bought a rear brake swap kit from Powerstop on Rock Auto and I've been waiting for better weather to do the swap myself. But there are a few things I'm concerned about, namely: 1. How am I supposed to rig up the parking brake...
  3. Focus SVT
    Hoping someone here can help me out. Symptom 1: My brakes get stiff when I push them more than once quickly, which led me to replace all the vacuum hoses, associated o-rings and gaskets. Even made my own smoke machine, found a small leak at the IMRC but considering my short and long term fuel...

    Do the front axles for the focus have ABS tone rings built into the axel or is it a separate ring? I see on rockauto they only sell rings for the rear, and the front CV axel I purchased and installed, along with the others on the site are listed as "abs ring not included"?

    Have a 2010 ford focus SEL, when I press the brakes the front ABS engages and I can hear it and feel it in the pedal. This happens at any speed, no ABS lights shows up on the dash while its happening. When I pull the ABS fuse the car brakes normally. I already replaced both front abs sensors and...

    Bought a ford focus off of my neighbors son, he hydroplaned it into a curb and did some damage to the front right suspension. I replaced everything on the front right side except for the strut & caliper. (lower control arm, cv axel, tie rods, hub and spindle). When braking I can feel a pulse in...

  9. MK3 Focus
    I have a 2016 N/A ford focus SE that I have been slowly changing up throughout the ownership I'm starting to get into some serious parts gathering here and wondered if I could swap to a 2 piston caliper in the front https://www.wilwood.com/Calipers/CaliperProd?itemno=120-9703 say these, for...

    I can't seem to find anyone with an answer. Master Cylinder failed on my 2006 Ford Focus. I bought a new one from my local Napa and typically I always bench bleed my master cylinders. I keep reading everywhere how important it is to get all of the air out on these focus'. It does not have ABS...

  12. MK1 Focus
    So I was bored and decide to paint my calipers and drums. I would suggest against white because of brake dust and it's little ricy on tiny stock brakes in my opinion. Go for black or gray. That's what I would do if I were to do it over again. Disclaimer: There is a small but nonzero chance...

    I haven't yet check it out but i want to get an idea on what to look for when i do. ok i will try to describe as best as posible. when i first begin to drive, brakes feel firm and car brakes fine. but when i go on to a drive way or a lot of bumps or even when i make sharp turns, brake pedal gets...

    After replacing the pads and rotors on the front I ran into a problem. [scratch] Keep in mind i have not bled the brakes because i did not detach any brake lines. I also did not see any brake fluid leak from anywhere. The pedal would travel with no response until it was about 2 inches from the...
  15. Wheels & Tires
    My 2002 SE has 72000 miles. I just had major brake work done (brakes, new rotors, new rear cylinders) as well as new left wheel bearings (front and rear). It has started making a rapid thumping noise whenever I brake and turn (either right or left) at the same time. Is it likely that the...
