I think we need to make a sticky for the 2005 pads/rotor options...we have the duratec performance guide, but nothing on brakes.

I don't know all of the options, but I'm sure we can all come up with them. If you know of something that isn't listed post it up here and I'll include it in the list. I also don't know for sure the sizes of the ST if they are the same or not, if someone could help with that too. Thanks!
Can a mod make this a sticky please?

2005 Rotor size:
(front) : 10.9"
(rear) :

Brake Pads:
1. Hawk HPS: HB519F.682
2. EBC Ultimax: D1044
3. EBC Green Stuff: DP21524
4. EBC Red Stuff: DP31524C
5. EBC Yellow Stuff: DP41524R

Hawk Racing Compounds:
1. Blue 9012 Part: HB519E.682
2. DTC-60 Part: HB519G.682
3. HT 10 Part: HB519S.682
4. HT 14 Part: HB519V.682

Brake Rotors:
1. ZXtuner has 3 options (slotted, drilled, slotted/drilled)
2. EBC: GD7309 (slotted/drilled)

Big Brake kits:
1. Brembo Big Brake Kit: 344-1A5-5004A1
Can be either black, red, or silver calipers. Add B, R, or S to the end of the part number depending on which color you want.

ST Front rotors & Brakes are the same as the other 05s according to EBC's catalouge. And just eyeballing it on my 06 ZX3 and my 05 ST they look the same.

Doesn't the ST have rear disc brakes too? can you buy those from Ford? And will they work with ABS?

yeah the ST has ABS discs all around. Ford will carry these parts but they're liable to cost a lil more from a dealer, since they really like to rape you on parts.

For reference, all that is needed to upgrade the front brakes on 05-up Foci to SVT brakes are the rotors and the rear bracket for the caliper that bolts to the spindle. I just did this last night on my 2005 ST [thumb] I'll post pics later on as well.

That upgrades the 278mm (10.9") front rotors to 300mm (11.8") SVT front rotors.

Here's the pic, they're at the top and wrap around...only problem is I don't think you can order it seperately from the rest of the caliper.

Do not forget that you need the wheels for clearance.

I needed to replace my 2005 Front rotors and was just looking for an OEM replacement.
Dealer wants about $75 each for OEM or $52 for Motorcraft.
*Both prices are discounted from retail price.

They both look the same but the Motorcraft is $20 cheaper.

I installed/bought the Motorcraft and they are the same size and I can't tell the difference.

Anyway, to get the Motorcraft front rotor, use Ford part number: 5U2Z-1V125-Q
Otherwise if you ask for OEM replacement, you won't get the Motorcraft part.

Not saying he ripped you off, just saying I got them for 36 bucks per rotor.

I'm not sure what that posts says but I see it says rip off.

You could of said that Steve gave you a better deal possibly because:

A: They were new to the market and he wanted to see if they worked.
B: The retail price at the time was lower but I doubt it because I have kept a close on on 2005 dealer rotor prices for a while.
C: He gave them to you at his cost because you're such a good guy.

Also, since you're the one who started this thread, why didn't you note the part number of the rotor you got and the person who could get them from since it appears you got the deal of the century ?
