95 Cobra to 89 fox disc and brake swap.

Was wondering if I'm missing anything, going to the scrap yard dont want to go twice.
Things I'm pulling:
-master cylinder with hydro booster
-spindles
-hubs
-rotors with calipers and lines
Anything else?. I already have rear axle from a v8 sn95.

Need spindles for 94-95. 96-04 you will need to change k-member. Maximum motor sport has a k-member that's adjustable. Found mind on eBay.

Is there a difference in rotor or caliper size between the 95 Cobra to the sn95 model?

Good luck finding a cobra not stripped down. If you find a 94-95 cobra get the spindles and all for calibers and rear brackets. Just need read brake lines.

Nothing cheap about it. Think I spent 1400 without wheels. Doing it the right way.

Go to JY, pull the SN95 spindles and whatever other parts yourself, then order a set of new PBR calipers and brackets from wherever (rockauto has them) for the fronts. For the rears you'll need to do caliper mount brackets when you pull the axles for the 5 lugs plus the cobra caliper brackets and you can use any 94-04 rear calipers since they are all the same.

Figure you'll spend $300 shipped for a good quality new Cobra rotor/pad setup. Another $40-$50 for good used rear calipers, $50 for rear Cobra caliper brackets, $150 for the caliper bracket rear mounts, $250-$300 for Cobra front calipers and brackets, plus the cost of whatever you pull from the JY like the spindles/lines/rear axles etc... Its not cheap, $1400 is a little more expensive than I've seen some done for but its not the most expensive I've seen either.

A much cheaper and still effective setup is to do a 99-04 GT brake setup. They had dual pistons calipers up front but not the big rotors the Cobras had. They still stop LIGHT YEARS better than the fox setup and even the 94-98 GT setup.
