Yeah, even the stock discs, like yours, were pretty big- 11". Dunno why anyone needs anything bigger than that on the street.

Did you go with the old factory disc upgrade or newer aftermarket?

Classic Mustang Disc Brake Conversions and Power Steering


And Israel, I think it is the aftermarket as the parts were SSBC.

Chockostang just google him- he has a nice website, but call him on the phone- thats where you'll see a positive difference. IIRC the kit that I and Wareagle got is the oem style upgrade. 4 piston calipers, huge rotors, all bolt and go. No surprises, and most of all no discovering that your upgrade requires 1000 dollars worth of new tires/wheels to get it off the jack stands

fwiw: I powdercoated my calipers since they were nice and new and clean. It was significantly tricky to blow out the pistons, but after that it all worked out well. Just gotta think about doing the master

LOL! Of course, with goofy wheels like that, why worry about how the brakes look!
