Rear brakes

The rear brakes are the same as on 1999 - 2004 Mustang Cobras and 2003 and 20044 Mustang Mach 1s.  I purchased them through Factory Five; they are single piston with 11.65” rotors.

The assembly of the rear brakes was pretty straightforward except that the piston pushing against the inboard brake pad was out too far resulting a brake pad gap that was too narrow to fit over the rotor.  I bought a Brake and Caliper Service kit from Harbor Freight (Maddox #63264) to screw in the piston and narrow the gap.

The mounting plates for the caliper also required a set of washer shims so that the rotor would be centered in the brake assembly:
