    You can PM Jerry now for brackets.
    You should let me drive my own car around a bit first though.
    Just to be sure it all works

    03 Cobra calipers don't really work that great for 03 Cobra's. They are smaller than the factory Marauder ones.

    I'm in. Until now, I've been thinking everyday how I can justify spending $1800 for the big brake kit. Now I have 99 problems but a big brake kit ain't 1. I'm ready. Waiting on results.

    These brackets will work on a 2004 Crown Victoria as well, correct? Bolts included as well?

    Nice work, gentlemen. Finally a setup that won't break the bank on me. And, I can piece it together over the winter.

    This is great so $140 get brackets only? A low cost start to bigger brakes,I'm ready to start as soon as we hear how this set-up works out!

    I'm wondering if this will work. I went to advance auto parts and searched for 2001 corvette vin s front brake calipers and came up with remanded calipers for $89 ea. Will these work for what we are trying to do? Plus we could get an online discount code from brads deals and get them even cheaper.

    You are correct sir. I only buy brake parts from NAPA so considering anything else was not even an option for me.
    You can get both sides with free shipping and enter the current promotion for $218.
    I have a secret code I always use, and can get them down to $193, but I am not sharing it.
