Best place to buy a brake setup.

Well i have been looking for some new brake setups lately that have been used because i don't feel like paying 1k+ for a new setup unless i can find a place that sells good brands for a good price.

I know of the most common brands like EBC, Brembo, Wilwood, Baer and Hawk.
I don't know of a good place online that i can buy them from for a good price. 13' is the rang i would like to stick with.

If you know of some good sites post the link. In the mean time ill keep looking for some good used setups.


Would love to see a color finish like this on my car, but not for $1,500...

I thinks its a great value to get some parts used. Brakes are one of the few thing that I would only get new.

That being said if your comfertable with it and are confident that all said parts are in good condition then your best bet is going to be the usual. EBay and craigslist. The thing with quality brake kits is that once they are installed, I can't see anyone wanting to remove and sell unless the car had been totaled.

Oh, and to get a good kit its gonna cost you as you've seen, gotta pay to play! Most good setups are going to be over the 1k mark, usually 2-3k depending on who you go with.

I wouldn't really use eBay to buy really anything in that aspect of parts unless they were name brand. I know of some other forms of guys selling brakes just because they are parting out or going in another direction.

I'm just looking for a good dealer that sells name brand brakes for a good price.

My question was if anyone knows of a trusted site that is a reputable dealer and has overall good prices.

I have the full Bear big brake kit (14 inch front and back)on my 1995 GT. Total was around 3200 (if I remember correctly) and it was one of the best things I did to my car. Changed the whole look of the car and the performance out of the kit is phenomenal. I totally recommend a high performance break kit to anybody.

I'm pretty sure the mounting and brackets would be completely different.

Only 94-04 work.

I wouldn't doubt it. I think i can find a good setup online for around $1,500-$2,000

You're not gonna want to go cheap with the brakes the cheaper drilled and slotted rotors are known to develop stress cracks around the holes and when they crack it's not a good thing. If you want to save a few bucks look into the cobra brake upgrade kits A.M sells them

Re: Best place to buy a brake setup.

SSBC is big with the high-end Corvette crowd, but they make brake kits for every level of Mustang performance. I talked to the reps at Buttonwillow Raceway and they seemed to really know their stuff.
