‘15 brake swap on a 73?
#1
Hey guys. 

Picked up a set of 2015 mustang  caliper, lines, brackets[Image: FAE8-E58-D-54-C6-4-CB0-8-FE9-3-F0741-F3-ECB0.png]

[Image: F55-F7-D84-1044-4-EA8-9069-E852-AC49-B562.png], would need new rotors. 


Guy swapped to brembos 

Could I make these work on my 73?

My car is drum brakes all around. 

I’d like to add disc to the front. 

Thanks in advance.

I appreciate the response

I looked. At his sight and the brackets are not inexpensive.


How would that compare to something like this kit?

Mustang Steve has been around for a while and is known to have quality products.

I appreciate your response. 
In your view does that mean the complete kit is better or trying to piecemeal it together with the ‘15 brakes and and the brackets?

I took it to mean that it is better to buy known quality products, Ford quality brakes, quality brackets (from Mustang Steve), rather than pieced together parts of unknown quality from an unknown seller.

I have all the factory disc parts off a 71-3's for converting

pedal, booster / M/C, prop valve, spindles, calipers  sometimes rotors  275.00 up depending on condition ... usually recommend getting booster M/C and calipers rebuilt for safety...   But it is all stock Ford parts
