Have any of you guys tried the 1999 -up Mustang gt PBR caliper swap on granada spindles?
This setup replaces the granada caliper with a '99 GT caliper with more pad area.
Look like a good deal....
Does anyone know the piston diameter? The '99 mustang Gt master cyl. diameter?

I like it..
The manufacturing drawings aren't high enough quality for a machine shop to use as a base to replicate the bits though, are they?
I don't have the tools here to make them

If you click the picture you can get a better detail of the image. Click the top half, as the bottom half seems to link somewhere else ????

I haven't heard of this upgrade before, but I've always been interested in a way to go from single to dual piston calipers. I know a fabricator in the area and I think I send him a copy of this and see what he thinks.

Does anybody know what the master cylinder bore is on the '99-2000 GTs?
Also have you guys ever heard of the Hydroboost being retrofitted to an early stang?

Can't say I have ever seen it, I have heard a couple say they wanted to do it, but nothing more ever came of it...
