Hi All, new to this forum, but not to Fords, I've picked up 2011 Fiesta SEL, and am just wondering if its possible to use Focus Rear axle hubs to put rear disc brakes on it? Thanks in advance for any replies.
Great find, thank you. Anybody have experience with these sets specifically? Is there any difference in dimensioning between hatchback and the sedan (I have the sedan). Another question if I may, how is the Fiesta models for upgrading in general? The Sedan handles nice and tight, will it benefit better from better sway bars or just the upgraded blocks. I've never done any performance tuning on a car, so just looking what will be the best bang for the very rare spare buck or two. Thanks in advance.
Shouldn't reallly need much done to it as it's pretty good in standard mode to be honest . If you want to and feel the need , the skys the limit for uprating / modding with that car . That brake set covers ,
Fiesta Mk.7 Zetec
Fiesta Mk.7 Zetec S1600
Fiesta Mk.7 Zetec TDCi
Fiesta Mk.7 Zetec-S/Ti-VCT
So looks like there should be no problem with your car but you could enquire if you felt otherwise .
thanks gentlemen, wasn't looking at springs specifically, and I agree the handling on my unit is exemplary for its small size and price range. (sub 40,000 km). Having owned some other small 4 bangers such as cavalier and subaru (sub's especialy had gross body roll), just trying to get a feel for where improvements in the Fiesta model group may be, ergo the sway bars or bushings question. Not to mention personalizing the vehicle too. Thanks for all the input. If anyone has a source for an electronic version of the technical manual (ebay had nothing at last check)
