Who on this forum has drilled brake disks on his 2.0 zetec. I have them in front from brembo (max).
Now i want some for the rear. Does anyone has them on the rear.
Pics and comments are welcome please.

I'm not sure about in Belgium, but here in the 'States, all Foci (except the SVT, and maybe the ST I think, not sure on that one) came with drums in the rear and are a completely different setup than rotors(discs). Therefore the rotors are unusable on the rears.

But thats usually out of budget, usually in the $1000 range. But IF he did or anyone else, they should get a smaller size on the rear because if they are the same, it will bring the brake bias towards the rear and may or may not help overall braking. But it would help minimize understeer (only when braking) and maybe too much causing oversteer. Unlikely, but it could happen in severe cases.
