Mustang Rear Disc Conversion
Ditch the drum brakes on your 1993 Mustang with this 5.0 Resto 4-lug disc brake conversion! This is the most complete 4-lug disc brake conversion you'll find on the market! This is a great conversion for someone that wants to retain their 4 lug wheels but upgrade to rear disc brakes. It has everything you need including the dust shields, proportioning valve, lines, calipers, pads, brake lines, E-brake cables, rotors and hardware. The factory 4-lug axles are retained for an easy installation.
The brake calipers included with this kit are the 93 Cobra/87-88 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe rear calipers. These calipers are completely disassembled, thoroughly cleaned, inspected, and then reassembled using only the highest quality materials. These calipers come with the correct brake pads so there's no hunting the parts stores for the correct pads! New drum to disc brake conversion hard lines are included!
Rear caliper pistons may need to be adjusted/compressed before installation.
This kit includes a 93 Cobra master cylinder to provide the appropriate fluid pressure to the rear brakes. Maximum Motorsports 3-port to 2-port conversion kit will get it connected to your stock hard lines. Included with the master cylinder is the Ford Performance adjustable proportioning valve and 5.0 Resto block off plug to correctly provide brake fluid pressure to the rear calipers.
Parking Brake Cables
Our parking brake cables are a direct replacement for the stock drum brake cables. These cables connect to the body and the calipers with no modification. The correct e-clips are included to retain them to the caliper!
The 1986-1998 Mustang 8.8" housing is not perfect and it will be necessary to remove a small amount of material from the rear upper corner of the housing flange. This will allow the new bracket to be rotated into position for the bolt holes to line up. See the above product image of the driver side flange for the exact location the grinding is needed.

I installed this kit on my 1993 LX. I settled on this kit over the SSBC kit because of it being a more complete kit (ie included dust shields) although being slightly more expensive. LMR's ordering process and customer service is second to none. Although this kit was on back-order at the time, LMR kept me informed as to its expected shipping, and I received the kit the exact date they said it should arrive.
Installation was straight forward with very good instructions that came with the kit, along with a very thorough and helpful video. Installation took about 3hrs with the help of a buddy. Don't listen to folks saying the feel of the brake pedal is too hard and needing a different brake booster etc. The feel is perfect and the brakes are now awesome!
