1996 Thunderbird Sport Coyote Swap
Check out www.discbrakesrus.com They have a complete Cobra front brake swap kit for our cars. It comes with 13" rotors drilled with the correct lug pattern & the 2 piston PBR calipers. You can get them powder coated with Tbird emblems if you want. I got a set from them about 4 years ago & it was one of the easiest swaps I've ever done. You don't need a hub rings with this kit. I upgraded to the Hawk HPS pads & what a difference it made. Their prices are also very good compared to others like Baer, Stainless Steel Brake, etc.OxmanWI said:Well I think it is a good reference to me. It will help me out visually when I do my swap when it get warmer around here. So expect a thread on here very soon!
What are you doing with the rears?Bangster said:Yeah, I was going to do that, but I am doing it for less than half the price of the discbrakesrus setup, sure it doesn't have a thunderbird (which matches my Cougar as well as machined letters C O B R A) and mine are red, and I got the expensive FRPP rotors when I could have gotten cheaper ones, but it is still cheaper, even with what I have to pay to get the rotors machined.
I could have done it for more than 100 bucks less if I had gone with the plain Mach I calipers and some of the Brembo factory replacement rotors. I figure I am doing front and rear for less than the discbrakesrus price, but it is nice to have that option!
The only part of that site that should be a sticky is how nice they look behind 17 inch wheels versus the little ones!
