i need to do mine... Good that the focus its not moving, nothing wrong with it, but i dont have to worry to much, and the escort its getting fix this winter(not to many hours at work)... i did the rear brakes on the escort... i ended up buying all new, new calipers, new rotors, brake lines, bushings... thats what you get with a old car that cost you 800 bucks... anyway... i love my winter beater(and i been thinking on getting a old BMW for winter and save my little escort)

hell yeah man. thats the future plan. id love to have the reverse fogs. might hafta wait a bit. i just rolled over 80k miles and it just seems like things are starting to go wrong. lol. before i did this, i had to change out the alt. a second time within 4 months. then a week later, the serpentine belt got chewed up. now i just did the brakes, and im gonna need a new stainless steel exhaust. my current one is all rusted and literally falling apart. guess that was my fault in the beginning not gettin a stainless exhaust. doesnt help that christmas is right around the corner and i have like no damn money. lol. ughhh...
