SVO and Stainless Steel Brakes both have excellent, affordable reardisc-brake swap kits for 8.8-equipped Mustangs, but what they both leave out are two little brackets that Ford engineers finally figured out with the 94 model.
With rear discs, there is often a harmonic that resonates from the rear of the car when you get on the brakes. This harmonic comes from the calipers vibrating. As long as the stereo is cranked or your 3-inch exhaust is blasting, you probably wont notice it, but its loud enough that some people get annoyed. The SVO rear-disc kit comes with the factory anti-moan brackets but, in some cases, theyre too short to fit the earlier housing.
GRC Performance recently showed us how to modify a pair of these brackets to quiet an earlier cars rear discs. It only takes a little bit of time, but the only hangup for most of us is that it requires welding. Now, granted, disc-brake moan might not be your top priority, but for those of you irritated by the noise, GRC has the fix. Check it out.
