Nothing to it. You need Cobra calipers, brakes and brake lines and that is it . Just bolt them on. 96 and up V6 & GT have the same spindle assembly

I read somewhere that someone makes a rear brake adapter that fits 13" Cobra front rotors to the rear... Steeda? I checked the site but no joy!! Anyone know what I' talking about?

Why would you want to do that . The rear are used for very little stopping more for Emergency braking. Plus the brake metering would be way off and you would have to use a different master cylinder!!!!!!!

So your saying keep your stock brakes in the rear and just put Cobras on the front?

One thing no one has mentioned is that you have to have at least 17" rims or they won't fit.

yes but the same little hockey puck caliper. So really all you are doing is adding weight

I have warped my rotors twice on my car. Ford sucks in the brake department

Here is a pick of the Bullitt rear Brake same as the Cobra but painted red
It is the same little *** hockey puck with a larger rotor so it would look cool
