Re: ? Bracket allowing use of Focus SVT rotors ?

Okay, correction to my post above... since I have a 2000 CSVT, the old caliper won't work with the new bracket and pads as I was hoping. I did the complete change to FSVT parts last week and had no problems (calipers, rotors, and pads). A noticeable improvement to braking performance, to say the least.
If you're like me and have a 2000 or 99 (built post 5/27) CSVT, you can't do just the bracket and pads... gotta' get the new caliper.
To answer an earlier question, I was intending to get the FSVT bracket from Murray's or some other discount store. I'm pretty sure you can get a re-manufactured caliper and bracket for dirt cheap (less than $40?)... just use the bracket. That's a small price to pay rather than tring to fab up your own bracket. But this only works for those who have the older (pre-5/27/99) CSVT caliper.
