Ive asked before and ill ask again.

Im curious to who has done the Brake Upgrade using Mustang Parts, reason i ask is, that Joe and myself are trying to organise the parts imported for the states to be sold/or fitted up here for $1k mark instead of the $2.5k + mark from cebco people..

So if anyone could shed some light on the exact year of mustang/parts needed..

So far according to Steve (dcs) all is needed is:
a) spindles
b) twinpot calipers
c) rotors

All from a 94/95 Mustang..

Can anyone confirm this?

I don't think anyone will know.. The only thing I know about the 94/95 mustangs is that they have an engine very similar to the Windsors put into the EF/EL hence why underdrive pulleys can fit with little modification. If you want to find out, you may just have to buy some.

Trial and error my friend. :roll:

Are there any Mustang forums in the US you could look at? Someone there should be able to give you measurements/specs.

Rotors - DBA069 (94 - 98 Mustang) - you will need to get hubs to suit.

Calipers - AP Racing - or Commy VT

Pads - Commy VT

Uprights - EL GT

now there is a concise answer XR8Chic, well done!!

So are they bigger brakes than what any of the aussie built fords have on them are they?

I dont know anything about mustang uprights.

I heard that you can modify the standard ones to suit the different calipers, but I dont know how its done.

I believe to fit big rotors onto stock uprights you need to mill off the two posts that stick out for the pads to sit on, then just fabribate an adaptor plate to suit the new caliper's location.

I'm sure I've read this somewhere in a magazine, will have to look for it!
