I just did a search on this but couldn't find an answer.

Tonight I tried to bolt up my PBR dual piston calipers. Although they seem to fit perfectly with alignment of the rotor and the bolt hols in the SN95 spindles, the caliper actually hits the spindle preventing it from moving.

I'd post a picture, but my website isn't up yet. Basically the caliper hits round eye holes on the SN95 spindle right where the bolts go through.

Have others had this problem? Did you just grind the spindle to make them fit???

I am not certain what year the spindles are.

Yes, you have to grind the spindle area a small amount. They work just fine. Trust me on this, I have them. [img]smile.gif[/img]

My 94 / 95 SN95 spindles fit without grinding, but it was close. Grinding is common.

Check out this link for helpfull info.

John posted the website I was thinking of.

Jeff, I look forward to your new website. I'd like to see what your up too on your new build.

Thanks guys. I kinda figured that was the case. This might become a good post for the "tips" area if more and more people will be using the newer spindles and breaks.

I've been trying to find time to get the new website up Damon, but it's slow going lately.

I actually did some pretty cool frame mods by completely removing the 3/4 tubes that run forward from the firewall and welding in some 1.5" round tubing in a relocated spot so that it clears for a power brake booster. I can't wait to share some of those mods with the forum.

Jeff,
As posted before, it takes very little metal removal on the cast tabs to make them fit. Hope it works out. Never panic as it only causes more posting with the accompanied harrasment .
I hope to see more posts from your build.
Jack

Do any of the big chain auto parts outfits sell "PBR" calipers? To get the right part I should ask for a 1999 GT V6 mustang calipers?

One more: (sorry) will they take a single piston SN95 caliper as a core for the dual piston PBR's?

Giff,
I'm not completely sure on this one but the PBRs may have started in the 2001 Stangs. I know mine came from a 2002. I'm not sure on this one though you may just want to double check it.

Yeah, I got my pbr twin piston calipers at autozone.

1999 was the first year for them V6 or GT. I was able to swap my single piston calipers as cores. I told the parts guy ahead of time, and he did it for me.

And the spindle grinding was very minimal in my set-up.

Good Luck.

Jeff E.
