Cobra calipers and rotors from Autozone

Isn't it just possible to go get Cobra calipers and rotors from autozone $65 for each caliper and $55 for each rotor. Do you need anything else to swap over?

Re: Cobra calipers and rotors from Autozone

Brake pads are normally a good thing too...sarcasm...It's recommended you get SS lines too with most of the kits. I got my whole set up through Ford Racing, but I'm not sure they offer it anymore. I only paid $359 with everything. Took me about 3 hrs to install. You will need a flare nut wrench to install the lines as I think they are bigger than the stock rubber/plastic lines. While your add it I would add speed bleeders to the calipers which helps you bleed your brakes as a one man team.

Russell Speed Bleeders - JEGS

I think russel was the brand I went with. Can't remember the pRt number and since my iPad doesn't open the "fits document" I can't tell if these are the right ones, but just search for 03-04 cobra bleeders from the jets website.

Re: Cobra calipers and rotors from Autozone

Youd need caliper cores at autozone or any autoparts to not come out the same price as buying a cobra brake kit....a good alternative as well is the SVE cobra replica brake kit

To me? Pretty obvious

To the person at the parts counter? You might be able to pull it off...

If you do this, paint the calipers before you install them.

I plan to just tell the guy what I need and when he asks what car I will say a Bullitt .. he will give me cobra breaks I will bring back the GT ones and if he busts me I can just play dumb and say I donno that's what u gave me, this is what I have. They would prob just take them at that point.

They'll take back the GT cores especially if you take it back to a different person and I think you can take them back to any autozone for the core refund. In my experience, most parts store workers are idiots but even the ones who aren't are not going to know every part in the store. Also, stay the hell away from Autozone rotors especially duracraps. They have horrible runout issues. Get on Rockauto and get Raybestos or Centrics you will be VERY happy with those. And get ceramic pads to keep your wheels from getting dirty as hell. I have Raybestos on all 4 corners of mine with ceramic pads and a full Cobra front/back conversion and she stops great. Just like my 95 Cobra lol.

But as far as the autozone reman'd calipers. Inspect them right when you get them in the store and check the boots/seals for any tears etc... I've had great luck with the rebuilt calipers and just threw a set of rears on my 98 to replace an old set.

Oh, you mentioned a one person power bleeder. Get the Motive unit with the 3 prong Ford specific cap. I have one and it fits perfectly and its a super nice piece.
