  • Fox Body Brake Guide
Fox Body Mustangs where cursed with poor brakes from the factory. That is a known fact! That doesn’t mean you have to live with those sub-par brakes. This can actually be dangerous when it comes to throwing performance mods into the mix. Any extra power over factory just further degrades your braking power. Below you will find some of the most popular Fox Body Brake tech articles and installation videos.

There are several different options out there when it comes to braking system upgrades for 1979-93 Fox Body Mustangs. Two of the most common ways to improve your 60-0 MPH braking performance are SN95 brake conversions or SVO brake upgrades. While both options are good upgrades in their own right, they are vastly different when it comes to time and material required to finish.

Below you will find out massive step-by-step tech article that covers how to do a SN95 Cobra Brake conversion on your Fox Body Mustang. This is accomplished with our SVE 5 Lug Disc Brake Conversion kit. Not only does it give you the larger Dual piston SVT Cobra brakes but it also converts your rear brakes to disc and converts both front and rear to 5 lug. This option is the most technical and time consuming brake upgrade for Fox Body Mustangs.

If you are looking for something a little less involved, you can use one of our other brake kits that retain your factory spindles. Shop our full line of kits here: Fox Body Mustang Brake Kits. Please feel free to share any of these guides with your fellow Mustang enthusiast friends and family!
