Got my brakes...

Here's a pic of the brake parts I got. They are on the car now except for the lines and what a difference! Big props to the guys at stangsuspension.com. They gave me a killer deal on these parts.

Re: Got my brakes...

looks good but if those are not coated with something to prevent rust you should REALLY do something about it like paint them with some high temp paint to keep them looking good.

Won't do any good. My rotors were zinc plated, once you hit the brakes a couple times, they are bare metal again.

Are those rotors from rotor pros or was it someone else I sent there?

Re: Got my brakes...

I just got Mach 1 brakes on the GT... as soon as I find the damn locking lug key I'll bleed them and then have awesome brakes. Right now, they're a little soft, but still good brakes.

No that was me that asked you for that info. I was going to get them from rotor pros but then I was talking to Josh over at stangsuspension.com and he matched there prices and gave me a better deal on a whole package bit. They are zinc plated too, and I'm taking it easy on them so that they can break in right. Hopefully they will keep the shine they have, but if they don't oh well, they were better then what I did have!

I dont think you need to taqke the wheels off to bleed brakes man. Im pretty sure the bleeder nuts are n the backside bottom of the caliper.

Re: Got my brakes...

it will wear off where the pad touches but it wont be that much different, it will still be shinny.
