    i picked it all up from stangsuspension.com... I was really torn on upgrading my brakes, there's just so many options for calipers, rotors, even lines. I knew i wanted ss lines and some kind of nice rotors. but finishes and drilled vs slotted, i played around with all the options for quite some time, heck I was even thinking about putting brembo 4piston calipers on the dang thing. Looking back now i'm glad i didn't cause this is a great setup and i saved a whole lot of money compared to a brembo setup

    Nice man, that looks great.

    The ss lines help the pedal feel more firm since they don't swell.
    Enjoy!

    I ffffinally figured out this camera and i think i'll be able to get some high res shots. that is if it ever quits raining around here :dunno:


    and i've got a question for anybody that has dealt much with brakes... what brake fluid would u recommend. I just used dot3 to replace whatever was lossed during the swap and to add when bleeding the brakes, but i'd like to flush the whole system and go with some new fluid throughout. anybody have any brake fluid they recommend?

    who makes what? the rotors are powerslot zinced/slotted 13" rotors. and the calipers are just mach I calipers (the exact same caliper as cobra, bullitt, 10th anni cobra calipers) They are all two piston pbr calipers. the lines are stangsuspension ss lines. now as far as who makes the rotors and calipers, you've got me, prolly some little kid in some 3rd world country... :bunny3:

    any dot3 type will work. Best kind is the Motorcraft heavy duty Dot3 fluid.

    Your car is looking so sexy that i would suggest a motor swap for biggest mod! Throw in 5.0 Crate or get a cheap PI motor.......

    How do you like the feel of the brakes? Do you stop faster and sooner?

    oh gosh, the brakes are an amazing upgrade from the single piston v6/gt brake setup. I also needed new pads anyways, so rather than spend money on pads that would eventually be replaced/upgraded I did the whole swap.

    and as far as a motor swap... well i'm torn, i've def played around with the idea, but it's a difficult swap, and requires a lot of time and money which i'm short both right now. I also just got an xcal2 and seem to be having some tranny slippage :noes:

    but for right now i'm just going to continue to drive it, and i've also got a set of 4.10's and tlok that are ready to be installed... which i dunno how that would affect, if at all, the tranny situation (if i have a tranny situation, not for sure yet)

    but at any rate I really like modding the v6, but there is no substitute for the sound of 8 cylinders either... :blah2:
