    Wanting to upgrade the rear brakes in my 94 gt to a dual caliper setup up, going to plum a line from a hydro e-brake to the extra caliper.

    -Been reading around online and have seen that people use the front brakes from 99-04 Gts and swap it onto the 94-98 fronts brakes, would that work for the rear? Or would it not fit onto the rear?

    -Or does anyone know somewhere I can purchase dual brackets for the rear?

    If anything I could get some fabricated for me somehow, I'm just on a budget and would prefer the cheapest route (but safe and reliable though).

    Any insight is welcomed and appreciated :grin:

    Call Pete at FTR a vendor on this site he is working on some rear upgrade brackets and would be the one to know what can be done.

    Heyo. Our friend and sponsored driver Yoshi @ Team TOS sells dual caliper brackets for the 8.8, can't find the info on them off hand (I don't know if he has a website). Here's an image I pulled off his Facebook:

    If you shoot me an email I can get you in contact with him via Facebook. He uses them with our hydro e-brake http://www.fullytorquedracing.com/drift/hydraulic-handbrake-staging-brake.html


    **2020 Update** because I see this page still comes up on google. Scotidi Race Development has billet dual caliper brackets for the SN95 https://www.scotidiracedevelopment.com/store/p26/1979-2004-Mustang-Dual-Caliper-Brackets.html. There's also an option to run the cobra rear brakes.

    Also, we no longer make our own handbrake as mentioned earlier in the thread, but Scotidi has one now that we machine https://www.scotidiracedevelopment.com/store/p43/Edge-Handbrake.html
