It's a really simple swap, just need the Cobra calipers, brackets, pads, rotors, and possibly lines (it's a good time to upgrade to SS lines). I bought mine used off eBay and it came with everything I needed including cobra lines.

That's what I kinda figured!.. Lol. Now the rear calipers are the same correct?.. For the rear should be just rotors and brackets?..

Upgrade to the stainless steel braided brake lines. I hear this makes a big difference because the stock lines swell when the pressure increases giving it a mushy feel. I plan to do this upgrade too at some point when I need new brakes.

Rotors, pads, and brackets. The Cibra pads are thinner than the GT pads due to being a vented rotor
