Just upgraded 89 fox to full 95 suspension including brakes, how am I doing ?
My father just got himself a fox coupe which just finished undergoing a 4-cyl conversion. Mods included 3.55 rear gears, brand new full exhaust setup incl headers, 93 motor/trans, motor just rebuilt, edelbrock performer intake, f-303 cam, cold air kit, b&m shifter, pullies etc.
And stock 4-cyl front brakes, these things are really bad.
Purchasing a vehicle like this was rather inviting as the chassis hasn't been subjected to torsions that the 5.0L makes yet. It also has all the basic bolt-ons one would go through...
As this is my third mustang project, I decided to focus on the mods I wished I had done first with my other cars, so I picked up a complete rear end, and front k-member with everything attached, and a master cylinder/porportioning valve from a 95 gt auto (3.27:1 gears)
How well does the stock sn95 brakes perform on a fox ? I assume the rotors are 12.5" in the front ? What further upgrades should be done to the brakes ?
