stock front brakes, cobra rears...bad?

i was wondering this because i need to replace my rear everything. pads and rotors...

and wondered how it would affect my brake bias to just get the rears upgraded to cobra/bullitt spec?

actually, i think he cobra brakes are 11" in the rear, ive heard 11.65", but im not sure

the fronts on your car are 11"

its best to do the front and rear conversion, or just the front in one shot, having the rear brakes being that size will usually cause a lot of nose dive under braking

The Cobra rear brake calipers are the same caliper except they use larger rotors. There is absolutely no benefit to swapping out rear calipers unless you like to waste money

the cobra rear brakes are IDENTICAL to yours in all ways but the bracket that moves the caliper out farther to make it worth with the larger rotors... the calipers are the SAME so all you need is the brake bracket and your set. (alog with rotor)
