Cobra brake setup

I have a couple questions, first is well this guy totaled his 03 cobra and he is parting it out and he said he will let go of the front brakes for 350. I was wondering if I should get the rears as well or if it's only the fronts tht are bigger. Another is is 350 a good price for the whole front brakes? Like calipers rotors and what not? Thnks in advance I really want to do this upgrade

He said he will also include spindles whatever tht is

No...

Rear calipers are the same. Only difference is rotors and pads.
Also, you can buy a new setup for that price. 250 would be a better deal

I did a cobra/ Mach front brake swap... no booster needed. Calipers bolt right up. May need a new banjo bolt ( bolt that goes from the brake line to caliper) awesome upgrade. I have pics on here if you want to see. Back cobra brakes require pulling your axles to mount a new bracket to reposition the caliper to accommodate the bigger rotor. Or stage 3 Motorsports offers 3 big brake upgrades for the rear. Baer alcon and roush. The only difference between the 3 are the prices. Those kits just bolt on.. real simple
