SVE has adapted to find new ways to bring parts back that fell victim to discontinuations such as the popular 93 Cobra/Turbo Coupe disc brake conversion. This kit features brand new 1994-2004 Cobra-style rear calipers that will provide the same great braking performance the previous kits had. In order for the new calipers to be mounted up correctly, we include the correct brake caliper adapter brackets that complement the new caliper and 10.5" rear rotors. Hub-centric rings allow the re-drilled SN95 10.5" rear rotors to properly center the rotor on your existing Fox Body axles. These parts are supported and held securely in place by the long list of components we include which are detailed further down the description. It's hard to beat a period-correct upgrade all while retaining an OE look which is what the SVE 4 lug disc brake conversion kit is designed to do!

All 1979-1986 Mustangs do not need to do this task due to the factory parking brake handle design.
