Mustang SVE Brake Upgrade Kit
Improve the braking performance of your Fox Body with this 1987-1993 Mustang 5.0 SVE brake upgrade kit! From the factory, the 4 lug brake setup on these cars left much to be desired. The anemic 60mm piston calipers struggle to apply force to bring your Mustang to a stop. SVE's front brake upgrade kit uses a set of newly re-manufactured SVO front brake calipers which have a larger 73mm piston compared to the factory 60mm piston. This larger piston provides a larger clamping force to bring your Fox to a stop much faster than before!
High Quality Components
To go along with your new calipers, we've included a set of C-Tek drilled and slotted rotors. The drilled and slotted design provides a better bite for your brake pads, as well as improves heat dissipation to keep your brakes cool in all conditions. A set of J&M stainless steel front brake hoses, as well as the center rear hose, are included to eliminate the factory rubber hoses. Rubber expands when heated up, whereas the Teflon lined stainless hoses resist expansion to provide an improved pedal feel and quicker response. Semi-metallic brake pads are included to provide a great bite while keeping dust to a minimum. New inner and outer bearings, rotor seals, retaining hardware, and grease caps are included for a quick and easy installation!
SVE Caliper Sleeves
Included in this kit are a set of SVE stainless steel brake caliper sleeves that replace the rubber bushings inside the calipers. The rubber bushings allow the calipers to move during braking, preventing the pad from contacting the rotor surface squarely. This movement reduces your brakes' effectiveness and leads to tapered pad wear. The included SVE caliper sleeves replace those rubber bushings with stainless steel caliper sleeves that prevent caliper movement for improved braking and full pad contact.
-Caliper pistons may need to be adjusted/compressed before installation.
-We recommend performing a complete brake fluid flush when installing this kit.
Will also fit 79-86 5.0/2.3 and 87-93 2.3 Mustangs using 87-93 V8 spindles/struts.
These brakes are great .. Don't forget they go on a 5.0 spindle , not a 4 cylinder spindle .... And you need spacer ... They look great on my Fox Body
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

They fit well and work great

I have these and they fit well and work great. They didn't work well at first, though. The pedal felt very spongy. The problem was that the master cylinder needs to be upgraded to something with a larger bore. I went with a 94-95 GT master cylinder since I plant to upgrade to rear discs. Don't forget the brake line adapter kit since the OEM master cylinder has a port on the bottom for the left front caliper and the 94-95 GT master cylinder only has two ports on the side.
