    I'm working on my '68 coupe that has been garaged for 15 years. When I first started messing around with the car one of the front brakes (drums) was frozen, and the master cylinder was empty.

    I have an '04 GT, and am looking to upgrade my brakes. However, all I see on aftermarket sites are the Cobra calipers for 94-04 Mustangs. Will these work on my GT regardless of them being for a Cobra, or will I need to change something for them to fit? Is there any other option to get better...

    I was thinking about putting on the FRPP 14" brake set. I have an 07 GT/CS with the stock 18" rims. If you look on the fordracingparts.com site it indicates rims that are compatible but those are not the 18 wheels i have. Does anyone know if the FRPP will work with the stock rims. AZChris

    Hello fellow Mustang owners, I have a quick question for the community about the brakes on my 2006 V6 Coupe. As I come to a full stop my breaks seem to be making this creaking noise for just a moment until the rotors are fully stopped. It sounds similar to someone rubbing their palm against...
