ST brakes will fit but are VERY expensive. Last time I heard brake discs were around 140. Then I think the callipers are different too. You can get excellent aftermarket brakes for less than that.

cheers man the only reason i liked the idea of the st170 brakes is that they are 300mm discs as my focus has a set of 18s on it and the discs looked tiny behind them i was told that u needed to change the hubs also but i am totally new to this so i just wanted to see what my options are dont really wanna shell out a grand plus for brembro or any of those brakes i found a company that can supply the calipers for 250 but i wanted to check everything out befor i start spendin money and cheers for the reply

Now you mention that, I do think you need to change the hubs too.

And just to revive this - Are there any other brake updgrades that could be done using other Ford parts? Such as brakes from a V6 Mondeo etc?
