Start small, try replacing brake lines. But try to get a good deal on braided lines.

I had a similar problem with my rear brakes and it could be the slide on the caliber bracket is ceased and not allowing the caliber float properly about a 20 fix for the hardware if you can salvage the bracket if not maybe 60 the most! Good luck

Slide pins X1000. Replace them and you should be good. Common problem on Fords.

Definitely replace your slide pins. This happened on my 2000 GT before I put it in storage. Replaced pins and good to go.

Very good possibility but start with calipers if that doesn't solve the problem replace the master

If you're going to do calipers get some Cobra/Bullitt/Mach units and upgrade to 13" fronts.
