2004 Bullitt Mustang Rear Rotor Replacement Question

Hello everybody, I have a question about doing a rear rotor replacement on my friends 04 Bullitt mustang. He wasn't able to change his brake pads for his rear brakes, and so far it looks like we r probably just going to have to replace the pads and the rotors, but we will find out when we get in there.

Any advice on such a project would be helpful, or if you know of any write ups for rotor replacement on the 04's.

And if anybody has done this let me know of any kinks you ran into along the way.

Thanks

the rotors on the back should be the same as either the GT or the Cobra (cobra are a touch bigger) I cant remember if the Bullitt got the full front and rear cobra brakes or just front.

Re: 2004 Bullitt Mustang Rear Rotor Replacement Question

Did you have to turn the parking break "piston" to fit the break pads back in correctly? I know that you have to do that on some cars, but I haven't done this on a mustang yet.

yup the rear calipers have to have the little tool to turn the pistons back into the caliper, fronts you dont.
