I've been looking at some parts and I was curious about Brembo brakes for my 2005 GT. All I can find are front brake kits. Are there rear brake kits as well?

If you want the Brembos the closest you could get to a matching rear set would be to install the same type of drilled/slotted/whatever rotors on the back, and colormatch the paint and paint the calipers. However, ssbc has a kit for the s197 mustangs, and a matching caliper/rotor/pad for the rear axles. It's not matching in the strictest sense as far as pistons per caliper, and piston size, but it'll be as close as you could come to manufacturer matched front and rears. The ssbc rear is a single piston caliper with an integrated parking brake. Their website is ssbrakes.com, and they have a doodad that helps you choose brakes based on application. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, instead of a one liner that seemingly mocks my question. :bounce2:

Baer makes a big rotor kit for the rear brakes. But since the fronts do about 90% of the braking, most companies overlook the rears. I think steeda has a kit as well. Expensive considering how much they do though

Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure how much the rears played in the braking process. I go for the Brembos eventually if they'll fit the Nurburging rims I'll get.

Hotshot, Steeda does make a rear kit. But unless you do hardcore road racing you will never need it

Tell me you don't wish they made this as a kit? Even if you don't use them hard they do look cool.
