Brake fabrication Q

I am looking at fabricating a bracket ect.... to fit the 99 GT dual piston calipers to my 91 fox. Has anyone ever done/ experimented with anything like this? I already have the full SSBC 4 wheel disc conversion on it. However, I feel that the dual piston design will increase the braking efficiency on the road courses. By the way I also have a 95 GT brake booster and a 95 Cobra master cyl. I also have the brake prop. valve. What do you think?


91 Road Racing Fox. N/A 383W. Full MM setup front and rear with Bilstein coil-overs. 14x1.25 Wilwood 6 piston fronts with Wilwood 13x1 single piston rears.

Why not just get updated spindles for $100 from a local yard?

Is the SSBC conversion 4-lug or 5-lug? That may have bearing on his choice of spindle upgrades.

Yes, it is a 4 lug which plays a major role in my decision. That and the fact that I just bought new 4-lug cobra r's. I will do the full MM coil-over conversion in a few years and will do the full 13in brakes ect.. then. This is more of a band-aid for now.

Yeah, then I could see how you would be stuck fabbing up your own spindle/bracket.
