Brembo pkg

Ok I have the brembo pkg on my car and want to know if anyone can tell me for sure what exactly it entails? I know obviously front brakes wheels etc... But have heard that it also come with diff rear pads.. Bigger sway bars... Diff break lines.. Etc.. Curious to know what it really has other than just hearsay.. Also plan on installing frpp k-springs and have noticed that people with the brembo pkg have been able to install them w/o the need of gt500 upper strut mounts and dampers as it calls for per American Muscles site... So does the brembo pkg already have these? Basically just want to know the exact specs of the entire pkg...

Re: Brembo pkg

From what i knew it was just different brakes, wheels, and lines. Nothing else special. Same sway bars, strut mounts etc.

Then why can I change over to frpp k-springs WITHOUT getting new strut mounts and dampers? It would seem to me that would mean they are diff than the standard gt pkg strut mounts right?

I'm in the process of dropping as well, I just call CJ Pony Parts and talked to someone and they told me if your car is lowered u need new strut mounts... The GT500 strut mounts are part of the track pack and it's ok to use on aftermarket setups... I just ordered the mounts today

The differential is the same. I bought a base model with 3.73's in it. Only one comes with a different diff is the Boss. And its actually the clutches inside that are different.

Does anyone know a way to find out FOR SURE.. Not that I don't believe anybody just a lot of hearsay though.. I want some hard facts.. Like if there's anywhere that Ford would have the brembo pkg specd out...

You do need new strut mounts I lowered my car. I used the GT 500. Nice smooth rise actually. Not like my 95

Re: Brembo pkg

Ford – New Cars, Trucks, SUVs, Hybrids & Crossovers | Ford Vehicles gives the package details, still vague...

about the suspension it just says "aggressive supension tuning"

Besides the Brakes and Wheels, THE BREMBO BRAKE PACKAGE COMES WITH:

Different Springs (131lbs Front / 167lbs Rear)
Different Struts/ Shocks (retuned for spring rates)
Different Sway Bars ( 35mm Front/ 24mm Rear)
Recalibrated Advance Trac, Traction Control, Anti Lock Brakes Settings
Different Strut Bar Brace
GT-500 Rear Lower Control Arms ( Higher Durometer Rubber)

If you have a 3:73 with the Brembo you should have carbon plates in the differential also.

Ford downplayed all the stuff because they wanted people to focus on the BOSS 302.

Also you DO NOT NEED DIFFERENT STRUT MOUNTS just to change springs. That is only needed if you do the STRUTS. That's until shock companies start making 2011 specific struts and shocks.

Re: Brembo pkg

I wish this thread would have existed before I bought my '11. I could have probably found one with the brembo package!
