Yes RP you can do the 10.9 rotor with the GT caliper. And on YOUR car being a 95 it already HAS the 94-95 style knuckle. You can also do the bigger 11.6 12, and 13" rotors you'll just have to use different calipers and brackets.

Ok, thats good since both of my front calipers suck anyway. One pulls the car this way sometimes then another way next time. I already replaced one of the rear calipers that was sticking, so now I can just replace both front ones with larger calipers.

All I have to do is get the larger SHO calipers and brackets for the conversion? I know a mechanic so it shouldn't be too much to have him do the installation since I'm not so good with this stuff. I'm sure he can provide the larger rotors and pads through his parts company.

quick edit: I'm assuming the kit for this conversion is available on the SHO Source website commonly advertised on this website? Thank God for this site, I'd have probably sold this car already LOL. I'm trying to keep this car good to go for the next 3 years of college, so I can make some real money and buy a 2012 Taurus or something lol.

you could just get some caliper from a 2000 mustang gt with dual piston and the pad and caliper bracket it a direct fit on a 94 95 taurus and get some stainless steel line to make this braking feeling
real real hard

Which-ever route you decide to go, I'd get the Stainless Steel brake lines, it might be your true underlying problem, instead of the calipers.

Thanks both of you guys and thanks for the PM mooby.

I'll probably go with the GT calipers since that seems like the easiest choice, and eventually upgrade to stainless steel brake lines. I know I just had my brake lines re-done though, so I don't know if or when I'll do that, but my front calipers are definitely in need of replacement.

What would provide better braking, getting bigger calipers and bigger rotors or just get the Mustang GT calipers with my current size rotors.

Sorry to threadjack, btw.

on the easiest and cheapest would be getting caliper and pad will increase braking power

keep same rotor so you dont have to upgrade to bigger wheel

I got the driver's side rear pads installed today, and mounted up the front rotor and caliper. It turns out that the scoche bit longer bolts didn't make a bit of difference. YAY! I'm coming to a point where it'll probably take a ton of searching through the trunk and interior just to find parts as from about thin point on.....I didn't take any of the underhood stuff of the car. I didn't yank any of the wiring harness, or any of the ABS components, which now need to be reinstalled. Plus, I really don't know what items Steve is going to want to paint. Maybe I'll just start the trans rebuild, I dunno.
