    Default 320mm brakes same as a FOCUS ST

    next time your out and about and see a focus ST take a look at the front brakes - there 320mm and the calipers look identical to our 320mm set up - might be an alternative option to people wanting a large brake conversion and not being able to source any parts - i'm sure there are plenty of these in breakers yards around the country that have been written off - or maybe someone wants to pay full asking price at ford

    The calipers aren't the problem. I've seen the 314mm ones fitted to Volvos, BMW's and plenty of others. The issue is the carriers that attach them on to the strut, as thy're obviously vehicle specific and you'd need to buy them seperately. By that point the costs start rising a lot...
