Mustang Cobra Rear Brakes installed - Pics...


Recommended Posts

OK Gang, here are pics of the 99-04 Cobra rear brakes installed on the Zcar using the JCR bracket. Don't panic, YES that's a wilwood two piece rotor you see in the pics. It's wilwoods direct replacement kit, and is exactly the same size as the OEM steal rotor. I'll be installing the factory OEM parts on another member's car in the spring and we'll take pics.

mike, if i'm interpreting the pics correctly it apprears as though you can retain a 'factory' parking brake. do you plan to use it? what is the diameter of the rotor? last Q, is the caliper bracket the same [i know this one may be dumb] as the 240sx bracket that mml offers [wondering if it would bolt right up to mine...]?

 

thanks

I have removed all the hardware from the interior, including the parking brake handle, and don't plan to use it myself. I have a parkloc installed, and will just use that. However, this is the same caliper Ross uses with his 13inch BB kit, and you can use the E-brake function with it.

 

The rear rotor diameter on the 99-04 cobra is 11.75 inches (approx.)

 

I have no clue. I've never had a 240SX adapter bracket. However, I do know that JCR still sells the brackets. Another member here just ordered them for $199.

This is a real nice upgrade. FoMoCo off-the-shelf parts PLUS a big performance upgrade. The Cobra rear pads are 49.60 sq. cm. (62mm x 80mm) which are larger than even the 300zxTT (Pads = 40.15 sq.cm (73mm x 55mm)). It also looks like you could adapt the mechanical parking brake to work with the stock handle.

 

As for rotors, the 300zxTT has a 297mm x 18mm rear rotor, the Ford uses a 296.2mm x 18.3mm. Lots of capacity.

 

Looks like a winner! Nice job Mike!

I have had cobra rotors on my car since late august, with great results. I have gone to 150+ down to zero a couple times in a row with no brake fade. Here is some shots.

Ofcourse I built my own brackets on my CNC machine, to accept wilwood

calipers out of 7075 alluminum.
