Cobra rear brake setup...($175 kit from ford racing)

Just to be triple sure:

The kit can reuse the GT calipers and slide brackets?

Will 16" rims clear it when I want to use Drag radials? (by 16" rim I mean a Ford factory 99v6 wheel).

I just basically need cobra pads, and then I'd be set?

The kit is this: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp

If your existing pads are worn down pretty good they might even fit as "Cobra" pads, since the Cobras just have thinner friction material.

where's a good place to replace one of the caliper slide brackets if it is frozen? On one side, one of the pins will not budge, I believe its permenantly bound, had plenty of grease, but neither wrench or hammer could move it. Pad wear was also at a wier angle, the pads are done. I have some really thick new GT pads, but how hard would it be to sand them down?
