Looks like their site went dark, not a good sign. If you are looking for brake kits, mostly what I saw they sold, it was noting really special. Packages of calipers and rotors similar to many, many other vendors. A niche that's pretty full...


OEM style are available from sites like Chockostag who posts here:


Classic Mustang Disc Brake Conversions and Power Steering


CSRP has been doing it for decades


CSRP discbrakeswap Mustang Disc Brake Conversion Kits SWAP3


Summitt Racing sells tons of after market (if you want to go that route and "upgrade" over a OEM set that works fine for the street)


Wilwood sells bolt on kits
Wilwood High-Performance Disc Brakes - Search Wilwood Brake Kits


Many, many others...


1968 Ford Mustang Performance Brake Kits by EBC, Brembo, Hawk, Stoptech & PowerStop


1968 Ford Mustang Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit - Legend Series


All basically the same for a given a style of caliper and rotor...

I have Mustang Steve brackets on the front and I used StreetorTrack brackets to mount rear Cobra calipers (don't have to press the rear axle bearing on and off for the SoT ones). Both companies are great to do business with.

Cobra rear bracket kit for 8" or 9" small, big, Torino bearing & 8.8 rear ends

I used Rotorpros for the rotors. Quick shipping, great price and they're zinc coated so they still look new.

One note, I did have to use a spacer to run my wheels, you'll have to check your clearance.

Is that "info" private or secret or something?
