I dont know anything about those specifically, but for 300 bucks you could get the Power Stop front and rear rotor and pads kit from American Muscle. I've had them on my Stang for almost two years (bought them from another site back then) and they work great. Couple it with some S.S. brake lines and you have a decent cheap upgrade over stock. Now If you want better you'd have to upgrade to Cobra brakes.

Like I said i've had them on my car for about two years with no problems. I don't do a lot of road racing, but I do like to drive to work and home like its a time trial. Lol

....and I did notice there was less brake fade than with the stock rotors and pads.

Feel better using something a fellow poster has used, thanks!

Using the Power Stop from AM as well. Rotors are the same size as stock but they respond better. I too changed the brake lines when changing the rotors.

I've seen those on eBay, and I sure wouldn't order them, when there are better known, reliable alternatives. Callahan Brakes makes me think of Tommy Boy, and I sure wouldn't want that associated with my GT.

I bought a set of these about a year ago for wifes GT, put them on brake lathe as soon as I got them to check them, to my surprise all 4 were perfectly true and balanced, i'm using akebono ceramic pads and have no problems . I live in east Tennessee where we have no flat or straight roads, so brakes get tested a lot , just my experience with them though.
