Hey guys, I have an 84 that was originally V6, now V8. I am wondering what a decent front brake upgrade would be or if i should just get the GT stock front brakes if they are any different from the V6. Looking for some input, Thanks.
Do you want to go 5 lug or just maintain 4 lug is your first decision you need to make. If 4 lug you can get v8 brake set-up or for 5 lug, start shopping around, ranger front rotors and ranger/aerostar rear axles. Or get the sn95 set-up.
Through '86, the all model mustangs had the same 10" front rotor/9" rear drum brake setup. In '87, they upgraded the 5.0L mustangs to 11" front rotor/ 9" drum brake setup. The non-V8 cars retained the previous 10"/9" setup. You could pull the spindles/calipers/rotors from a '87-93 5.0L for your upgrade.

I would also suggest looking for the lincoln calipers also which are 73mm single piston and bolt right on to the stock 87-93 spindle.
