Default New Brakes

Dont know if this belongs here if not mods please move.


Is it possible to swap to rear disk brakes instead of the stock drum brakes. Since it is a 8.8 can you swap a similar year Mustang brake set up on to it.

wouldnt it be easier to swap in an expo axle with discs? youd only have to weld the spring perches and shocks mounts

Easier if you have the availability of a welder or someone to weld it.

With the mustang you need access to something to notch the back plate
