I am looking at doing a big brake kit swap for my 67 Cougar project and for the price it looks like the Mustang Steve brake swap is the best bang for the buck. Already have the drum brake spindles so the kit come with the brakets for them and 2005 -2010 Mustang calipers and discs are a dime a dozen locally as well as Ebay for a good price.

I like the idea of having newer technology braking and keeping to Ford parts for ease of future brake jobs unlike some other kits that use Chevy rotors with Cadillac calipers.

Has anyone done this swap and if so any comments or pics of the swap?

Thanks!

I did the mustang steve swap both front and rear. No picks available right now, but the parts fit perfectly and I was able to shop around and get some brand new gt dealer take off parts dirt cheap. I had been looking at wilwood and this was just so much cheaper.

Just looked at the Ultrastang website and the price for the fronts is the same as Mustang Steves kit but the rears are a better price.

Do you have any pics of the SN95 brakes on your car?

Thanks jk69cat. Did you do the fronts as well or just added the kit to ad the rear discs? Being you have a 69 I am assuming just the rear so did you change the master cylinder to a 4 wheel disc unit or added a prop valve?

I remember you were converting to EFI around the same time I was with my 69.

I might try the SN95 Mustang 4 wheel disc master and booster like what Ultrastang talks about as it will save from needing the prop valve and all the other add ons.
