96 GT brake upgrade

Want to know if this mod will work

I want to upgrade my 96 GT brake by using a 2004 GT brakes system such as caliper brake, pad, rotor, and stainless steel hose line. I know it's not a really big upgrade but cobra brake is just not in my budget.Will I run in to any fitment issue.

Isn't it the same exact set up ?

Nope the 99-up cars had a dual piston caliper setup on GT size brakes. No there will not be any clearance issues IIRC its a direct bolt in. It is a good upgrade from stock but I distinctly remember my first thought when test driving 04 Mustang GTs for my buddy who was just learning stick was "wow this does NOT stop as well as my Cobra". Still way better than my 91 did though...

FWIW the Cobra brakes on my 98 have possibly already saved my life. If I'd have had the stock brakes I would have had a VERY bad wreck, probably with the 99-04 GT stuff too.

I've got Russells on mine. I think they were brand new for like 100 bucks, for the fronts.

Its definitely an upgrade to the stock 96 brakes, but the Cobra brakes are so worth it!

They didn't come with ss lines.

Just buy any of the kits out there, I could tell a difference on my cobra after doing it.

Looks good, you will notice a big difference but the pedal will be a little stiff with the GT master cylinder, not a big deal, just push harder lol. I had to emergency stop in mine over the summer and that thing came down from 60mph REAL quick. I've got the Cobra/Bullitt/Mach setup on all 4 corners though, to do the rears you have to pull the axles and install new mounting brackets but seeing as most of the braking is done up front its not really needed.

I should really look into doing this, maybe the cobra setup instead. People really seem to like to cut me off. If I had done it I probably wouldn't have hit that deer either.

The Cobra brakes are definitely an upgrade from GT brakes, I noticed a pretty major difference in braking especially from high speeds
