I want to put some rear disk brakes on my zx3 and as far as I can tell the SVT brake kit is the best out there. I am open to corrections. Does anyone know the best/cheapest place to buy this kit? Thanks.
Do you want just the rear discs or all four corners?
If you want the full kit I'd talk to b16sir1991 (Mike) on here, he works at a Ford dealer and can get you new Ford parts at employee cost.
If you're just looking for a rear conversion, talk to Jeremy from Focus-Salvage; I got a set of SVT rear discs off of him for $450 shipped, it included rear spindles, calipers, used pads and rotors (I replaced both on mine) and e-brake cables. They needed to be cleaned up before I could paint the calipers, but for what you're getting its not a bad price.
FYI, you'll need at least 16" wheels for the SVT hardware to clear.
Went to rotate my tires and found that the tire shop I bought them from over tightened the lug nuts. They're the crap stock lug nuts that get rounded if you look at them wrong. I got them off with a breaker bar but not without chewing most of them up to the point of uselessness. So I went...
I have a 2007 Focus ZX4 ST will a 17x8 with a +42 offset work I'm not lowered at all. I'm worried about rubbing on the suspension & not the body work. I'm currently running 17x7.5 Rota's with a 40 offset.
I own a Ford Focus MK1 2004. Have owned the vehicle for 2yrs+ and only had 1 tyre changed last year.
Driver’s rear is at minimum tread whilst other 3 tyres are at 5 being just under or just over.
Ideally I’m thinking to buy a new set for the vehicle all round but not sure on...
