  • Fox Body Mustang Restoration Guide: Brakes

As the 1979-1993 Ford Fox Body Mustang ages, we often find that there are components like the rotors, rear drum brake shoes, drum adjusters, wheel cylinders, parking brake, brake calipers, master cylinders, brake lines, and hoses have become worn or damaged. Brakes are a major part of the fox body mustang restoration that will keep you safe on the road. The age of the fox body has taken its toll on these components and may have left the brake system in need of restoration. Late Model Restoration will have high-quality restoration brake parts that will restore your Mustang to its factory specs.

The factory fox body brakes are more than adequate for the Fox Mustang and SVT Cobra but adding more power to the Ford Mustang is almost inevitable. In the case that you are finding your Fox not stopping as quickly as you would like, LMR offers plenty of brake upgrades and brake conversion kits that will improve your Fox Body Mustang brake system. This will include larger brake calipers with more pistons, larger brake rotors, better brake pads, rear disc brake conversions, and 5 lug brake conversions.

Use our restoration guides, tech articles, and DIY videos created by our skilled tech team to help restore or improve your Mustang GT, Cobra, Coupe, and Convertible’s brake system. Come back to check out our ever-expanding tech guides for you, the Mustang enthusiasts.
