help!! Getting ready to do a sn95 brake swap on my fox body.

I would like to put some 17 or 18s on this bad boy. So if anybody has done this swap before let me know what is the best route to go. (i have a complete 95 gt for the swap). Thank!

I converted my car, I left the rear drum though. What exactly do you want to know?

You will need 1 of these fittings for the passenger side front MM Brake fitting adapter, 1994-04 Mustang brakes on FOX [MMBAK-4] : Maximum Motorsports, the Latemodel Mustang Performance Suspension Leader!
The rears will bolt right in but you will need to remove the stock proportion valve and replace it with a aftermarket one...

I have a Ford Racing adjustable proportioning valve, opened it and found out I didn't need it on my car. $40 pm if you want it.

What brakes will you be using up front? Also if you swap the SN95 rear it will increase your track width by .75" per side. The stock prop valve needs to be gutted and add an adjustable proportioning valve. You will need a few adapters, but they can be found at NAPA...

FOX BODY MUSTANG 5 LUG CONVERSION StangNet

If you are looking for some more braking up front you can always go PBR, Cobra, or Wilwood/etc...

I would use calipers off of a 99+ mustang or cobra stuff. Stock 95 brakes arent the greatest.

There is a local guy fabbing up brackets for Wilwood's... the calipers run 350 with pads... about 80 for the brackets, 50 for the lines, they use stock 13" cobra rotors... really nice setup. They are 4-piston fixed calipers.

Here's how I did it. For one, ^^ get those brakes, put them on the SN95 spindles (fronts). They will bolt right up to the spindles and you'll just have to do a tiny bit of grinding so the caliper can line up correctly with the caliper bolt holes. Mine are off a 2000GT as well. You will need a spacer or couple thick washers for the top of the ball joint since it's longer on a Fox than SN95. You'll run out of threads and won't be able to completely tighten the castle nut if you don't.

I put new front SS front brake hoses from Maximum Motorsports. PN#MMBK4F

Rears, I got Fox length 5-lug axles and brake caliper brackets at North Racecars. The rear brake lines on the calipers I left alone, just shortened the stock hardline to match. Maximum makes rear SS hoses too if you want.

For master cylinder I used one from a '93 Cobra and a '93 Cobra booster. Got a Wilwood proportioning valve and ditched the stock one.

Brakes easy, brakes hard, and near perfect pedal feel.
