brake upgrade

Upgrading from GT brakes to Mustang Cobra brakes. Rockauto.com sells the calipers and brackets. What all else will I need? Caliper Guide Pin? new bolts, lines ect? or just the new brackets and calipers rotors and pads?

Stainless steel lines, brackets, calipers, all the hardware(pins, clips), pads and rotors.

Ever looked into the s197 caliper and boss 302 rotor upgrade? It's a bit more but your running a 14" rotor compared to 12" Cobras

There is a kit that let's you run 13/14 GT500 brakes also. Those are 14" 6 pot brakes.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

what are all the hardware pieces. The calipers, brackets ect are not sold in a kit so not sure of all the extras I need to buy to do the job. as for the boss 302 rotor upgrade I think that may be over kill.

Might have to buy the guide pins and the clips that snap into the bracket that help guide your pads in bracket

15" rotors would mean 19" wheels.
