No idea, as long as they are the Cobra/Mach/Bullitt ones and not a set of two piston 99-04 GT calipers you are good.

Yes, I'm positive there cobra calipers. Maby the company who remanufactured them leveld all the surfaces. The a1cardone ones I just got seem to be rebuilt alot better than the car quest brand ones. The seals were bulgeing on the car quest ones I returned.

I've had bad luck with cardone once and the replacement caliper I got was fine. Every other time I've got a part from them its been good. I've got cardone reman'd calipers on the back of my 98 right meow and they work just like they should. Nice to have 4 functional calipers again vs stopping with just the fronts and not knowing it lol. Was wondering why basically the same car with the exact same brake setup as my 95 Cobra stopped so much worse.

Just wanted to update. I installed the cobra brakes yesterday, ended up useing oem cobra rubber hoses, and painted the calipers red with black brackets. Also went with hawk ceramic pads. They were totally worth the money. The bigger rotors definitely give way more leverage. I find myself stopping to early because Im still used to the old gt brakes. Also I think the gt rotors were original because they were really worn down, they were the reason my pedal was low. Heres some pics.Click image for larger version
