    do they come with the correct hose so its a simple plug and play deal?
    are they pre-grinded to clear the 94+ front spindles?

    If not, I have 4 sets from various 2k+ stangs that are just sitting in my storage collecting dust.

    You need to do a little grinding on either the caliper or the factory Tbird hose to make them fit. No need to buy replacement hoses.

    yeah, i think you can use two driver side hoses and it fits like a charm... i may be wrong though but maybe.


    the grinding is inevitable.

    Take em' off at the least, they are a nice upgrade and $100 a pair is a good deal.

    The top of the calipers have to be grinded to clear suspension parts and a lip where the brake line 'block' connects has to be cut in half to fit the stock lines, its not hard at all, you just need a grinder (bench or hand held).

    Go to this page. Quick right up on them. The drilling that needs tobe done isn't mentioned with these, but give me some time and I can find the write up on the mustang PBRs for the drilling process. http://tccoa.com/articles/brakes/index.html#

    Keep in mind for the Mustang PBRs you have to have 93 or newer spindles.

    I'm looking for a set for my buddies 94 5spd, but I'm not willing to pay $100 plus shipping or I'd take a set but I just have to wait until I see a s197 in the yard.

    Drilling? I didn't have to do any drilling on mine. Other than grinding three places total it was a direct bolt on.

    I had it machined out for mine. They used a drill press to help keep the curved shape. It was for looks that's all. Completed the same purpase as the grinding. Sorry for the confusion. Just read the directions. If you find fault with them take it up with the author.

    Only put this info. in the post to help the items sell. Sorry for the sidetracking wasn't my intent.
