    Help me remember my caliper options!

    Way back when I upgraded to MK8 spindles/end links on my 90 SC. Then I upgraded to Cobra brakes with SS brake lines in the front. Then a few weeks ago I took the Cobra setup an swapped it onto my 94 (and found out the SS lines would not swap over because the line side fitting is different).

    So now I need to put calipers back on the 90 (after I swap out the ABS unit...).

    I can't use the stock calipers I took off the 94, correct? They won't bolt up right, right?

    If I were to buy new calipers from RockAuto since they're cheap enough, do I buy calipers for a 90, or for a 93, since I upgraded the spindles?

    Or I could also go with the Mustang GT PBR calipers, preferably from 03 since the banjo bolts are the same? And just grind a bit of the spindle down?

    Either case, I would also need rotors from a 93 SC, correct?

    Lol, am I remembering all of this correctly?

    Joe, since you have the later spindles, you could put stock 94 brakes on to the 90. You need 91-97 Bird rotors, and yes, you could use the Mustang V6/GT PBR calipers and brackets as well instead of the 94 SC units.


    cheers

    Thanks Ed! That's great that I can just throw the 94 calipers on there for now. (I guess I should have just test fitted them...). I knew I didn't trust my memory!
