Stopping is just as important than going in a performance car. For the #FairmontProject, I went with brakes that were part of a 5 lug conversion.

I’m told these brakes are the same as a ’94 Cobra. To be honest, I wasn’t overly happy with them. Mostly the parts themselves. They were aftermarket parts, not Ford, and I think that’s the main issue. I had fitment issues and the quality of the parts isn’t all that great as a result. I’m going to reserve judgement until after the car is up and running. If I’m not happy with the brakes at that time, I’ll likely swap them out for a better set.
For now here’s a video on their installation, and yes, I will go back and torque the spindle nut properly in a future video.
