    S197 easy front brake upgrade - for 05-10 GT and 05-14 V6

    For those of you looking to do an inexpensive brake upgrade to your 2005-up V6 or 2005-2010 GT, a straightforward swap is to switch up to the larger 13.2" rotors and caliper brackets from the 2011-2014 5.0 GT (non-Track Pack cars). The calipers and pads are the same size, but the increased size and weight of the larger rotors will help them stand up better to the thermal stress, and the brakes will have more clamping force because of the increased distance from the centre of the rotor.

    So for this swap we would provide you with two new OEM caliper anchors that include the slide pins & boots, plus two new OEM rotors. This package would be $359 + HST. You would reuse your existing calipers and pads, but if you want to upgrade your pads to something that offers better performance and durability for occasional track days or autocross, we do have Hawk Performance HP+ pads available for an additional $150 + HST. Also available are the Motorcraft branded PFC pads as used for original equipment on the 08 Bullitt and later V6 performance pack cars for $78 + HST.

    Please note that the larger rotors will require 18" wheels to clear them, the OEM Mustang 17" wheels do not go over. Any of the OEM 18" or larger wheels will fit, and likely most aftermarket in that size or larger as well... not like the Brembo 4-piston calipers which will only fit with certain styles of wheels that offer generous caliper clearance. We currently do not have these on the shelf yet, but they can be obtained with a one week lead time. Please contact us by phone, email, or p.m. if interested or have questions about this or any other Ford questions that we may be able to answer for you!


    thanks,

    You could also let people with 2011+ 5.0's know that if they do the reverse exchange and downgrade to 05-10 GT front brakes they will be able to run several more choices of wheels including various sizes of drag wheels with skinny fronts that won't have to be 17" plus.

    That's correct ... but we don't like to encourage brake system downgrades in 400+HP cars! LOL

    Stephen, if you've found a winter car and won't be running the 17s on your car at any point, we can take back those front rotors you bought to exchange if you are interested in doing this upgrade.


    thx,

    Bumping up this old thread in case there is any other interest ... I was checking pricing on this swap for NickD, and realized that the parts have actually come down a bit since last year. 2 rotors and 2 brackets would be $325 + HST. A reminder that you need to have at least 18" wheels to clear the larger rotors.

    Please contact us if you are interested in these, or any other Ford parts needs you may have.
