  1. Mustang S550 General Discussion
    Hey everyone. I have an issue but I am not 100 % sure what it is or what is causing it. Leaving work the other day I rolled my windows down because it was a nice out. I drive past the wall and garages, I hear this slow scraping sound (10-20 mph) reflecting off the wall about 3-5 feet away...

    Hi this is my first post here I have a 1966 mustang gt and this all began when I finally got my car on the road. My fist problem was the driverside caliper locked up so I bought a new one then I was driving to school and the passenger side caliper locked up I was able to get it home now after...

    My new 9" rear with disc brakes is using a 10mm fitting on the caliper for the brake hose to attach to it. I would like to use the stock brake hoses for the 1968 mustang. Is there an adapter that the brake hose attaches to and then will attach to the 10mm fitting on the caliper?

    Why does everyone who paint their calipers, paint them red? Has anyone with a black car painted them a different color? if so you can you send me some pics?

    Ive got some 15x7 draglites for the front of my 91. Not sure of the backspace- looks like about 5". The front left fit decent, just barely scraped the caliper bolt. The front right however, different story. The wheel was bound up so bad, it wouldnt turn. At first, ithought the wheels were...

    Hello all, this post has 2 purposes, as it is my first post on these forums, so I would like to say "Hi" The second purpose is to share my experience with rear brake calipers on the 05 GT. Recently i had to replace my rear axles (went with Moser axles, love them). In the process of...

    I have an 06 two tone mustang, black and white, v6. I was thinking about red but so many people have that and I am really not sure if I want to have 3 colors on my car anyway. That leaves me with black and white. I've googled some images but I can't find any with two tone cars. Suggestions...

    In the next week or so I plan on upgrading rotor, pads and painting my calipers. I would like to remove all 4 calipers and brackets to perform the clean up and painting on my work bench instead of on the car. I seem to be at a loss about how to plug the end of the brake line while I have these...

    I was replacing my brake pads and I removed the e-brake spring for better access to one of the bolts, only to find out that it's not easy to put the spring back on. So the rear-left brake caliper does not have the spring on it. Then I started noticing too much brake dust on the left front wheel...

    okay so i did a rear brake job on my 04 stang about a month ago. I replaced the rotors and pads(pads were organic). ever since then i had a "squeal". it ticks me off and ive tried everything i can think of to fix it. I lubed and replaced the slide pins, upgraded to ceramic pads, even lubed...

    So I recently put stoptech crossdrilled rotors on my mustang along with some stoptech brake pads. After lubing up all of the slide pins, pushing in all of the pistons, etc. I took it for a test drive. Halfway through the test drive i noticed that the engine sounded like it had stress on it when...

    Hey guys, I have a 1997 GT and recently I started to hear grinding noises from my back breaks (skipped squealing and went straight to grinding). I assumed it was simply my break pads needing replaced but when I pulled the wheel off on the passenger side I noticed that the roter had only been...

    the other day i was braking down from 75 mph to 0 getting off the highway and i found myself pushing the brake pedal almost all the way to the floor... i pulled over and found the right front wheel slightly smoking and the brakes were significantly weakened. when i got home i took the wheel off...

    Guys, Does anyone know what size of Torx tool do I need to remove the caliper bolts on my 1984 Mustang LX? Thank you.

    i just installed bullitts on my 91 and i need to do the sn95 brakes up front due to the dust caps. i currently run the mark vii rotors and ranger axles and drums. my question is, can i only use the v6/gt caliper setup or can i go straight to the twin piston 38mm calipers if i leave the rear...

    So I stored my cra this winter and somehow the Ebrake got left on So when I took it out and drove it It felt extremely sluggish and wants to go to one side, there is the smoke and smell of burning rubber aswell. At first I thought I had a flat tire but when I touched my rim it felt hot! I...

    Hey guys, so I love my car (as do pretty much all AFM users) but the thing thats bugging me right now (in addition to not having an x-charger :kooky: )is the general lack of stopping-power. My father, for instance has 2005 Chrysler PT cruiser 'Vert High Output Turbo (a pleasant 240 hp) and the...

    my right rear caliper is sticking and is squeezing the rotor when the brakes are not applied. i can smell it when i get out of the car after only 3-5 minutes on the road. i can feel the heat around the entire right rear wheel and the left rear is cold. what do i do about this?
