    Fiesta ST rear caliper vs 2012 Focus Rear caliper

    I know they are different, and wont interchange per say, but are the brake lines and brake connections the same? Anyone know?


    Check out what I found.

    I think this will work for our cars. The rear anyways. As long as the spindle flanges have the same bolt pattern.

    The way the owner explained it to me is if someone is in the Chicago area and is willing to leave cars for 2-3 days for measurements, he would like to market a product for the Fiesta community

    I know of karl. I ran the 2012 rear kit and his upper camber arms on my old zx3. He's a good guy. Ive actually bought a lot from him for that old car.

    On the rear? That's too heavy and would need some sort of balance adjustment. I'd be happy with a non-slider aluminum caliper from somewhere. Most of the street calipers are sliders. The racy-er calipers don't have support for parking brakes. Even the Wilwood rear BBK, which does have meh support for a parking brake, is a single-piston slider (and expensive).

    My ideal rear setup is a fixed aluminum caliper with parking brake support from something that is popular enough that I can buy 2-piece rotors. Porsche 986? Even better would be an adaptor kit that would allow me to swap knuckles from right to left to place the caliper inside the wheel base..., cuz RACECAR!

    Ah, the title was re. rear upgrades. That's a big-ass, cast iron, custom machined rotor for the front of our little cars. Ron@Whoosh is working on a more reasonable 986 transplant for the front. The single best improvement to the ride of my FiST was taking 11# off of each front corner with the Wilwood BBK and another 1# by removing the NVH weight (and, then, another 9# with lighter wheels and aluminum lugs). The last thing I'd want to do is increase unsprung weight.

    Re. the article and the rear of the FiST, we can already run the Focus SVT rear brackets and rotors. You won't get quite the braking power of a full SVT rear setup due to the smaller pads, but it's close and restored balance after adding the Wilwood kit.

    I agree about the SVT rear brackets, but they are hard to find. I'm wondering if this kit will be a substitute for that, if I or someone is willing to test to see if it will fit.
