Hi all!

Hi,

I'm Jim, a Canadian, living in Germany, and I own a 2012 3.7. Just wanted to say hi and also to ask if these brakes:

Power Stop KC5450-26, | Power Stop

are a drop in replacement for my factory brakes. I have 17" Focal rims on there now. Next year I will put 18" on in 5-spoke gloss black, but for now the new brakes have to fit in there. Also does anyone know if Jegs.com is reliable?

Thanks very much for your time...I hope to be in here a lot. (I will, I know myself ).

There are no dimensions anywhere that i can see, so i cant personally say if those will or will not fit. If you're looking for parts Americanmuscle.com is a good site, as well as a forum sponsor here, so i would start there.

To answer your question though, Jegs is a good site, but its more for generic parts. Or at least thats what i use it for, various AN fittings, or bits of hose, or parts that arent platform specific.

Hi and Welcome! I was in Germany for 28 months (Army) way back in 1972-1975. In a town called Schweinfurt (probably not spelled right)

Click on any of the 'vendors advertisement' on the Forum to find good quality Mustang parts

All indications are that they are a perfect match to the OE brakes.
Have to ask though, why new calipers as well? Color?
Call them up with questions.

Hey thanks for the quick replies guys.

1) @ David Young: you spelled it correctly!
2) @ Diehard: The old calipers look like they've been soaked in the Atlantic ocean for about 6 months. Just fugly as hell. Grey and corroded. The rotors are fine but have rust rings and it really stands out on a metallic black car with matte black rims.

Here's the car BTW. I've got the quarter window louvres from AM ready to put on as soon as it warms up (because of the 3M tape). I had the windows tinted 95% and with the new rotors/pads/calipers it should "complete the look". Next year after the warranty runs out I'll have a one piece aluminum driveshaft installed, deactivate the Governor, and get a tune for the shifting etc.






Look at those things!

It may be worth contemplating the PowerStop kit from American Muscle along with a set of the caliper covers.

With the AM code, you get 6% off the caliper covers and the brake kit. So it would be cheaper and less work then what you are looking at right now.

I would provide some links but it looks like their site is down right now. Should be back up in a bit hopefully.

I Have Power Stop on my Car, they are Flawless. But I did Not get them from "Jegs.com", so I can't comment on how that service is. But the Brand is very good.

Thanks again for the replies. I originally looked at American Muscle as I bought the louvres there and they were great. Unfortunately, they only have the set without the calipers. In Germany I have to be careful what I buy because of the strict modding rules here, ie. no headlight shades, no cold air intake etc. You can get them, but it's all got to be officially approved and you have to pay big bucks to get that done. Since I'm ording parts from America, I have to pay duties and such and then you I might find out that the part is not approved, as is the case with caliper covers sometimes. As long as i buy direct replacement parts, there's no worries. Also caliper covers don't quite look as good to me as the power coated calipers themselves.

I would say to get the kit from AM and paint the existing calipers yourself. You COULD always search that kit # on Ebay.

I bought from Summit Racing before and they are OK...

@ Zombie Slayer

That's hilarious I just got off the phone with them. Very courteous, but it seems that Powerstop themselves only have kits without the calipers. I might end up having to paint them myself, or have them painted.
