Sweeeet. Thanks Bull Geek!Yup that's all you need Dave. Caliper brackets from a 96-99 SHO or 01+ Taurus/Sable (any) and the applicable rotors. Nothing else is needed.
16", but I actually have 17's and 225/50R17s on the wayDave, do you have 15" or 16" wheels on your 2000? Iirc, 15" came stock and you would need 16" to clear the brackets.
You also need the SHO 96-99 or 01+ pads. They are different then what you have.Sweeeet. Thanks Bull Geek!

"upgrade"i'm looking at upgrading my front and rear brakes. i'm going to go with the 11.6" rotors front and rear both vented i just want to know what would be the best calipers to get. i 'm also wondering off what vehicles can i get the caliper brackets off of for the upgrade so i can just find some at a junk yard instead of having to by new. and with converting the rear all i need is the knuckle, hub, lines and the e-brake cable? what specificity do i need for the e-brake cable? and do i really need the backing plate?
^ Cardone are fine. May be cheaper at a self service salvage yard.
Just back from the yard. Not a single bull there :\ Sucks, I was at least hoping to salvage a sunload sensor (I finally remembered to run EATC diagnostic yesterday. Sure enough, 051.)Self service yard. Grab them. Rip out the sliders. Clean em out. Lube them up. Reinstall.
If you weren't in Canada, I'd ship you some cheap using USPS Priority flat rate mailing.
Thanks loudsho, but the $50 to ship to Canada kills the price for me, unfortunately.
What year of the mustangs should I be looking at for the brake parts for a 2000 taurus and will the calipers also work... I need to upgrade the rotors and all from this stock parts plzFor the 11.6" fronts, you need caliper brackets marked FN74 which come off any '96-'99 SHO or any '01-'07 Taurus. All you need for the upgrade is a set of 11.6" rotors, the caliper bracket I mentioned, and pads (they're 598s, just tell them you have a G3 SHO or an '01-'07). The front calipers are the same ones you already have. It's no harder or more involved than a straight brake job.
The other options are to keep the stock size rotors and install Mustang GT calipers (which is the cheapest way to get dual-piston calipers on a Taurus) or use 11.6" rotors with Cobra calipers (which is much more expensive and requires modified FN74 brackets).
For the 11.6" vented rear setup you need the '89-'92 SHO vented rear calipers - you can't use the solid disc ones for the conversion since they won't fit over the wider rotor. SHO Source has the parts. Make sure you get the right ones for the backing plates you have since there are two kinds. You do need the backing plate (it's the caliper mount - not a pie tin like the fronts), and you'll need rear disc parking brake cables.
All the pros and cons of everything are posted around here - search around and you'll find everything you need to know
The 2000 Taurus comes with 10.9" rotors and 16" wheels. You have several upgrade paths:What year of the mustangs should I be looking at for the brake parts for a 2000 taurus and will the calipers also work... I need to upgrade the rotors and all from this stock parts plz
