Default front brakes

I know the manual says to use mustang 2 front calipers, but is there any dual piston calipers that would bolt on to a mustang 2 spindle.

Hey Britt,
I have a Mustang II setup on my car. From my experience (limited to modifications I have made) the largest determining factor of what calipers you may use is wheel size and backspace on your wheels. I have 15" wheels with 3 1/2" backspace and use 4 pot Wilwoods on the front. There were NO major modifications needed. Just bolt on the supplied rotors and spindles and go (after bleeding the system, seating the pads,ect) I suggest you call Wilwood Tech Line and see what they can set you up with.

their web site doesn't show all of the options avail, i would call them.
if you don't have 11" rotors now(granada type) you may need to get those also, they have the OEM style and wilwood rotors with fancy looking hub
