    I am looking for some nice big brake upgrade kit and am looking at different brands and versions. As far as I know there are some brands that have Big Brake Kits for our Mustang GTs: Brembo, Wilwood, Bear, Stoptech, Steeda, Roush Some of those offer kits for front and rear brakes. I know most...

    Hello, I am a new owner of a 2003 Mustang V6 convertible. The car has 80K miles on it and runs great! I had a problem with the front brakes dragging. After replacing all the inexpensive parts first, hoses, calipers, rotors, ect... with no solution to the problem, I was told it could be the ABS...

    I know this topic may seem to have been beat to death, but I have some specific questions that I haven't seen answered on here yet... I just changed all my rotors, pads, and fluid (EBC rotors, Hawk HP+, Brembo LCF) and manually bled fluid. Used 1.5L of fluid, everything was clean with no...

    I'm just joined the forum because I need help. Recently I swapped motors in my 98 Mustang GT. Put the same motor in it, I just dropped a valve that went thru the piston in my last one. Anyway, motor runs like a champ, but I'm not having brake issues. When in park and applying the brake, it feels...

    After getting home from a few fun filled weeks downrange I'm back in the Mustang saddle again. My husband has been driving the car some while I was gone but no Advanctrac problems happened to him while I was away. But after over 4 months of Ford troubleshooting, and 6 weeks of the Flight Data...

    This car slid and crashed into a curb really hard and broke a piece off the rim and popped the tire we changed the wheel/tire with a spare and the caliper was grinding down the rotor you could hear loud scraping but would be quieter at faster speeds what could be wrong with it. Bearings? Axle...

    Hey guys, I have a 2000 GT with 158,xxx miles and just within the last week or two I have noticed a grinding sound coming from my rear axel area while driving anywhere between 15-30 mph. After that I can't hear it, but that could maybe just be the road noise kicking in. Could this just be a sign...

    Always been curious if anyone has done this as well and the ease/difficulty of install? I don't need a huge 2k brake kit just looking for a nice improvement. Wondering if there's a difference or not really :thanks

    Im more of a lurker on the site but I was so excited about my ebay find that I had to post. I was up lat night looking around on the bay for brakes and wheels when I found a set of Brembo wheels and tires, I never found the brakes I was looking for so I closed the bay out and called my wife to...

    Hi All, My brakes are worn out and I was thinking of upgrading them. I don't want to go crazy and put a big brake kit on it (yet!) but I do want to have better performing brakes than stock. I want to retain the stock calipers and rotor deminsons and I still want my brakes to operate...

    Alright, so since I bought my 96 the ABS light has always been on. Well, should have been. The last owner took the bulb out and I didnt know until I had to replace a bulb in the dash, but that was almost months after I bought the car. So I really think its had this problem for as long as the guy...

    I have found out that my 1966 Coup is leaking from the drivers side rear axel all over the brakes. I would like to fix it, but am unsure of a few things. Your input and expertise would be greatly appreciated? Is the seal called a "oil seal", a "axel seal" or a "grease seal." I want to get the...

    My brakes/ rotors are getting near the end of their life. I want to upgrade my stock V6 rotors to the GT rotors with the package offered by American Muscle: Ford Racing Mustang V6 Front Rotor Upgrade Kit (05-10 V6) M-2300-D - Free Shipping! But my 2006 V6 convertible only has 16" wheels...

    Bought Ford Racing Boss302 brake lines and 'baffled' oil pan for my 2011 GT 5.0 manual with Brembo package. Dealership, when trying to install (after taking apart car), says that the part numbers of the parts that I already have on my car are the exact same as what I am trying to have them...

    I was driving home to day and my brake pedal felt very soft and mushy, so to speak. When I got home I opened the hood and a little bit of smoke was coming from the master brake cylinder. Upon closer inspection, the rear compartment was almost dry and the front one's brake fluid was very dirty. I...

    I have a 1996 Mustang GT and i noticed there is a popping sound when i apply heavier braking, usually right before a complete stop, and the sound comes from the front driver side of the vehicle underneath, what could this be?

    I have posted about bypassing the power steering. I want to know if anyone has any advise about deleting the hydroboost for a brake booster?? If so which brake booster would work for my 96 gt 4.6L? Also, would the Power steering line going to the Hydroboost, then from the hydroboost to the...
