    I think flat black brakes look a bit dull. What's wrong with gloss black?


    And those came with brackets and all the mounting hardware? That's not a bad deal for $100. Might order me some next paycheck.

    Anything but yellow or red.


    I think color matched Opal ones would look neat

    Not bad for 100 bucks

    Id do Satin before flat but two each their own. What about matching your body paint and doing them opal frost?

    Im going to do gloss once i feel like spending money on wilwoods

    Nice Amazon ref link btw :)

    This might sound stupid, but another option would be to paint them gloss black and use a COBRA white sticker on them. Kinda like the Brembos look. I just recently bought a set of Brembo caliper stickers for mine cause the original name has faded and turned yellowish due to high heat.

    I read the ONE review.

    It DOES come with brackets.

    Mounting hardware... I don't give a poop.. anyone can buy 2 bolts at ford, or Napa for under 3 bucks.

    I just wanted to know if I reuse the 2 bolts I have from my stock set up.

    I've looked for months and I challenge anyone to find a better deal on a cobra caliper price with brackets.

    BTW I will add to the "reviews" my own take and it will be as many stars as possible.
    The item was correctly described and was a very good price.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Thats a decent deal for cobralike calipers from either source. Sure beats $200 for a pair of used calipers.

    Given it's amazon, I would've taken my chances too after reading that review. They have a great return policy and their customer service has always been pleasant. For the price, it's a risk worth taking. There's literally no point in buying a used kit from someone for $300 when you can piece a re-manufactured kit for under $200.

    Yes.
    Received.

    No cobra lettering on either.
    Both came with brackets pins and everything except the 2 mounting bolts which I have learned are the same as my stock 95 bolts.

    Extremely happy.
    Painted them satin black.
    have not installed yet.

    I definitely recommend these from amazon.
    Free 2 day shipping as I have Prime.

    Let me know when you get them mounted. I'm about to pull the trigger on these since I don't think mine can be fixed. For some reason they say they won't even fit a 03 mustang...

    Chinese knock offs, keep a spare set on hand, just helped a friend with these, took 3 new calipers on the driver's side to get a good one that would not lock up, a real headache for her and time consuming. She did the master and the lines because she could not believe the new calipers were junk. That pic has no MFG. info on the back, buyer beware.

    Update.
    So far so good.
    No issues at all.
    Braking is way better.

    Prices have gone up a bit as well. Glad they worked out Dugzy33.

    RockAuto used to sell a kit that had the calipers, rotors, lines, backets, and pads for about $300 from Power Stop which was a smokin deal. But no more last time I looked. Don't forget to do the rears and a Cobra MC to balance everything out.
