Front Brakes!

I'm looking for a front big brake upgrade. Hoping somebody has a complete set up, but not 100% necessary for me. I'm currently running stock '95 GT brakes/spindles on my fox. I'm not much interested in a stock Cobra caliper set up. I'm open to other brands, but prefer Wilwoods.

I appreciate it!

I got brand new Wilwood REAR brakes, $500 new in box. Match the front.


Stock block 306, V1 T-trim, AFM B-451 cam, TFS Twisted Wedge, Holley Systemax, A1000, Snow Meth, TKO 600, Team Z, Strange, MM, Lakewood and Moser helps me go forward fast.

Welcome, and search for "GTO calipers SN95" to find a thread about swapping 05/06 GTO calipers onto the 94-04 spindles. As I recall, it takes a bracket available to mount them directly, about $150-$175 for those. The calipers are stronger but not a ton "pressure bigger", so they work for the Mustangs.
