Makes very little difference. All have to me manufacturing standards. Bendix is a good brand. I have never in 40 years had any brand issues.

My abs light stays on all the time, front brakes are brand new

ABS is short for anti-lock braking system. This is a separate system from your hydraulic brakes.
The abs light means the system has a problem and it is disabled until you fix it. The regular brakes still work as you know.
Someone needs to scan the computer for ABS trouble codes and go from there.

Ford focus 2001 my front wheel studs has two broken studs, what or how i do it to replace them ? how can i take them out? thanks

Make sure you fix them . This could make other break easyly and come off, To fix the easyest wat you need a ez-out and a reversable drill, Go slow and it will come rt. out. Have to remove the axle to get to it. If on front. if on back can do easyer. A tire shop might charge you $10 to replace if you go get the studs. Good luck.

Just replaced front brakes

Did you turn the rotors? Drivers that drive fast, brake hard and hold the pedal down hard after stopping will warp these small rotors.

2001 Focus zx3 rear brakes- pads or drums???

If they look like a smaller version of your front brakes where you can see the disc (should be shiny on the side of the disc where the pad touches the rotor) then you have disk brakes.

If it's all black, or all kinda of rusted looking and all you see is a "cap" over everything behind the rim, then it'll be a drum...

95% of the zx3's have drums
only 5% of zx3's had discs. The ones that have disc brakes, also came with traction control as part of the package.

Sounds like the pads are worn out and are grinding on the rotors. You will likely have to replace the pads and rotors.
