    Is there any way to get more sweep area out of the stock calipers? Just put new pads and rotors and the car and only about half the front rotors are being swept by the brakes. Is there a little wiggle room with the caliper brackets or is it just something you have to live with unless you go with different calipers.

    I have the same brake setup. Only mine sweeps a little less area than that, I only get to the third hole down from the edge of the rotor where you get to the fourth. I guess I can take them apart again and re-seat everything to see if I get a bit more coverage.

    Are those the Hawk HPS pads? Maybe your larger sweep area compaired to mine is because I am using the Performance Ceramics.

    Re-designed pads would get more sweep.

    I believe the 00R brembos, give you all the extra swept area. I think you can get just the calipers, by getting the focus rs kit (silver).
