i asked the same thing in a different thread and the general feeling was a "no" im guess you wont be able to mound them on the rear hubs?

my brakes were bought of off the STOC for £120 with only 4k on them :) bargainous.

If i had the cash then i would have the pro kit, unfortunately i have neither :(

Unless your on a track grooved discs arent going to do much for your braking as generally your brakes wont get hot enough to glaze the pads, also theres a youtube video somewhere of greenstuff pads where in a fez he stops from 60 twice and then smoke pours off of the pads :(

Just to confirm, these brakes went straight on with no modification at all :D

I might have to invest some money in the future on these! Do you think they would fit the normal mk3.5 fiesta? I presume they would as its pretty much the same car lol.

the reason you cant put them on the back is that on the fiesta the drum and hub are one piece... thus you take the drum off you have nothing to attach the disc to. you can use 130 spec escort mk5 stuff..fiesta centre do a kit that uses sierra bits and supplies 2 hubs for use with the kit...orrr you can if you fancy some more work. the focus setup can be made to fit the std beam with work but will also bolt to right onto a ZS beam. however beware your master cylinder will probs poo its pants if you put discs on the back with bigger stuff on the front.

brakes will fit mk3 and 3.5 the same..all they did was decide to put a smaller head (same thread on the bolts) on the later ones otherwise all good ;)

I can confirm this guide also applies to the RS2000 260m setup. ;) Everything just swapped over and bolted up, couldn't be simpler.

Useful if your wheels have less clearance.

what size alloys do you have and what mk of escort are they from?
