Which is the best braking system?

Hey guys. I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death many of times. I'm saving up for many modification to my ride. One of them being an upgraded braking system; both front and rear. I'm looking for one best on both street/strip. My choices at the moment are between Brembo, BAER, and WILDWOOD. Which one to go with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any of the ones you mentioned would suffice. I believe Brembo is a top pick for Mustangs. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

Thanks rmb427r. I looked into Brembo's kits and noticed that they don't make a rear brake system for my car; just the front only. I know most of the stopping power is generated and taken by the front brakes, but i would like to have a system that matches both front and rear. BAER & WILDWOOD make it for bot. Guess Brembo is out.

I spent some time researching as I am in the same boat, and came with the conclusion that the brembo package that ford racing sells is very good, they are 15"rotor 6 piston for the fronts and 13.8"for the rear, pricewise is the best option.

I looked into Brembo. They have the kit you speak of, but the calipers are not consistent. They appear smaller than the front pair. Although BAER and WILDWOOD do have both front and rear sets with matching calipers. I just want consistency; everything to match

Those are mainly just brands. You have to look at the actual kits.

What i'm looking at right now are between the Wilwood superlight system. It doesn't have a lot of braking area but the rotors are much lighter which is a big plus.

I'm also looking at the Baer Extreme 14" 6S system which is a super powerful brake (14" rotors 6 piston calipers all 4 corners) but isn't quite as light as the Wilwood.

Each set up has their ups and downs. You have to figure out what works best for your application.

Really expensive. But its super nice, and matching all around (this particular kit is 99-04, but they have more). They have upgrades available for Type R rotors and 15" Calipers, but only dedicated race cars will need that.

Front Extreme+ Big Brake System 1994-2004 SN95 4261008 - Baer Brakes

Rear Extreme+ Big Brake System 1994-2004 SN95 8.8 Solid Axle 4262339 - Baer Brakes

Are those bullit wheels or you already have different ones?

Did you already checked fitment in your wheels? I'm asking because they look a lot like bullits and they don't fit big brakes (I have 18"bullits), I tried different templates like baer and wilwood and the only one that seems to fit is the wilwood with the 13"rotor, the 14"won't fit.

For the street I would not waste the money on brake kits. I would put slotted rotors with GT500, calipers, and a good pad on the front. On the rear just good pads and slotted rotors. On my track car I use Baer deep stage on the front.
