Hey guys,

So I'm currently looking at the 13" cobra brake upgrade for my '96 GT, and was thinking... Why not just get some remanufactured auto-parts brand calipers made for a cobra and piece together my own kit? 13" vented duralast rotors and some MM SS lines and I should be set, right?

Obviously, the included pads would be no good for track work, but for DD duty they should get the job done.

return the stock calipers...you think the guy at the autozone is going to know the difference? :rofl:
This, or just foot the $20 core charge. It's still cheaper than finding used parts in the classifieds or new Ford parts. Duralast lifetime warranty is attractive, and calipers are calipers, functionally, right?

Edit: Well, I can't seem to find remanufactured calipers with brackets in stock anywhere. Bummer.

2k2GT had a thread somewhere on this forum where he was looking for a caliper bracket; might want to search for that.

Unless you can find some good used caliper brackets, new ones will probably cost more than you are paying for the reman calipers. When you checked at you local store what did they tell you about availability of calipers with brackets? None available locally or nationwide? The problem is probably lack of brackets. If you can't find what you are looking for,I still have the set I offered you in your classified add and also have a new set of Cobra calipers for sale. Dale
