Rear disk options

What are you guys running for rear disks?

I need something that:

1) Works with C clip eliminators
2) Be able to handle street use
3) Not push the rear tires out more than 3/8"
4) Must fit 15" wheels (Draglites specifically)

Anyone?

Why not run North RaceCar stock width brackets for 94+ GT brakes? That will allow you to use your existing axles, assuming stock length, I figure you have a $$$ set already. The rest would just be stock Ford replacement parts, ie calipers, pads, hoses, rotors. I am pretty sure 94+ cars have no problems running the draglights with the 10" rear brakes

Ian,
A lot of guys down here seem to run the Aerospace rear discs on drag cars. The stuff isn't cheap but apparently it fits. Another choice might be Wilwood. I don't know if any of the stock rear disc stuff will work with a Fox axle and C-clip eliminators.

I used Weld Prostars on my 95 Cobra and did have some clearance issues with the caliper. I had to use a file to dress down the caliper in a few spots to gain clearance. The standard SN95 rotor is about 5/8" smaller than my Cobra rotors so the kit goduke mentioned may work work with the Draglites without modification.

Thank you gents, this is exactly what I'm after. I spoke with the guy @ North RaceCars and he gave me all the info I needed. Excellent customer service.

Unfortunately finding some of the parts up here is going to prove quite costly.

Total price to source those same parts up here is over 900 dollars, and that's before I even buy the brackets from NRC.

Looks like I'll be ordering that stuff from down south

Rear Choices

I just put on the SSBC kit on stock 89 4 lug axles with 15" 10 holes for now.This setup fits perfect stock, does not move the wheelbase and bolts in with only a rearrange (tweak) on the rear line leading to the caliper. (it can be bent or cut and flared and routed very clean. the kit with the new master cylinder was less than 600.00 to the front door and they substituted a master cylinder to match my 76MM front calipers at no extra cost.

How about the Lincoln/Cadillace rear disc setup. Matt90GT documented the procedures quite well on his website. Should have clearance. Pretty darn cheap and rotors are 11.35" diameter. Not sure what your price range, but this setup is cheap and effective.

Coincidentally, I removed that setup from my car and will be selling it soon. Includes rotors, calipers, pads, brackets, bolts, emergency brake cables. Can be used with Fox length and SN95 length axles.
