Our 4 lug OEM and factory-style replacement parts include replacement calipers, rotors, and drum brake components. Our aftermarket brake kits include the extremely popular 5.0 Resto 5 lug conversions and SVE SN95 rear Disc Brake Conversion Kits. Thanks to the SVE kits, we have taken the guesswork out of the very popular SN95 Cobra brake upgrades. These kits include all the brake hoses, brake lines, axles, adapters, brake boosters, master cylinders, rear-end brackets, and other miscellaneous hardware needed to tackle one of these projects in your garage. Many of these kits are also available in 28 spline and 31 spline options to further upgrade your rear end. They also feature slotted rotor options to take your brake upgrade to the next level.
There are many options for upgrading the brakes on a 1979-1993 Ford Mustang. Many Fox Body big brake upgrade kits include slotted or drilled and slotted rotors, performance brake pads, and larger calipers. These larger calipers can come in many configurations, including 2-piston calipers, 4-piston calipers, or larger ones. Remember that the larger the caliper and rotor sizes, the less clearance you will have for your wheels.
Most of these big brake upgrades require aftermarket wheels. We highly suggest carefully reading through the fitment notes if looking at any of these brake kits. Some of the best-fitting big brake kits on the market are the SN95 Disc Brake Conversions that we offer from SVE. These kits use many OEM or factory-style components found on the 1994-2004 SVT Mustang Cobras. They fit well, drastically improve your stopping power and give you many wheel options because these kits use the SN95 or New Edge Mustang front spindles.
Yes, there are great ways to upgrade the rear drum brakes on any 1979-1993 Fox Body Mustang. One of the best kits is the 5.0 Resto Brake Upgrade Package. This kit includes stainless steel brake lines for the front and rear. It also includes performance brake shoes and pads to improve your brake stopping power. Upgrading to a good set of brake rotors will also help you finish off a complete front brake kit. Simply replacing the brake lines with a good set of stainless lines, adding performance pads, and upgrading your drums and rotors can drastically improve your brakes without breaking the bank.
