Improved Braking Performance
This 1987-1993 Ford Mustang SVE front brake upgrade kit is a great way to improve your Foxbody's braking performance. The factory brakes on these Fox Bodys were great for daily driving but could have uses some improvement. Latemodel Restoration offers this front brake upgrade kit to help increase stopping power and decrease stopping distances. This kit features newly re-manufactured SVO front brake calipers which have a larger 73MM piston, compares to OEM calipers which have a smaller 60mm piston. We have also included a set of Hawk performance HPS compound pads for these calipers which have a more aggressive compound than a stock replacement pad. These 2 parts will work great together to give you a simple brake upgrade at an economical price point.
The 1984-1986 Mustang SVO was a unique vehicle that focused it's attention on the driving experience. It had and upgraded brake system that featured 4 wheel disc brakes and 73MM front calipers. The beautiful part about it is that those same 73MM calipers can be used on the 1987-1993 5.0L Mustangs as well. Upgrading your factory 5.0 front brake calipers to the SVO 73mm calipers will definitely increase your braking capabilities over stock.
Not recommended for use with rear drum brakes.
-Caliper pistons may need to be adjusted/compressed before installation.
-This kit will also fit 1979-1986 Mustangs and 1987-1993 4 cylinder mustangs if a set of 87-93 V8 spindles and struts are installed as well.
Just put the svo calipers with hawk hps pads yesterday. Did the break in on the pads today. There is a good bit more braking over the original setup. The only bad thing I noticed is that the brake pedal feels soft and travels more since the piston is much bigger now. I guess I will have to get used to it.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
