Help: Need to upgrade my brakes!
 
Hi All,

I'm looking to upgrade my brakes. I have an '01 4.4 and just upgraded my wheels to the 20" Style 87s and the brakes look whimpy! I would like something with the look of the brembo big brake kit but for much less money! If anyone can recommend good, large, drilled brakes that'd be great!

Thanks,

Jason

Buy the 4.6is brakes I have in the For Sale Forum!! You can have them powdercoated as well to really complete the look. I have a place to send them to for powdercoating.

If you want you could also buy cross drilled rotors:

They do have the cross drilled for the fronts for the 4.6is and they were supposed to get the rears in stock in December.....

My 4.6is calipers: $700 shipped (No rotors), $450 powder coating, pads @$140, rotors $450

That way you will have powder coated 4.6is brakes with cross drilled rotors for $1,740.... pretty good deal!!! Great stopping power and an awsome look!!! Much less than the Brembos for $6,500!!

jtphilips,

How is the ride using your 20" rims and Style 87 ? What tire sizes are you using ? Staggered ?

Can you post some pics ?

I just posted these pics. The ride has suffered a bit from the 17" rims I used to have but I get a lot of looks now. Tire sizes - 20x9.5 in the front, 20x10.5 in the rear. Yes they're staggered. Love them!

What's the minimum size wheel you need to clear the 4.6 front calipers?
I've got I think the 18" OEMs for Winter. Not sure if they'll clear.

18s will clear 4.6 calipers...most people with 4.6is wheels including myself have 18" wheels for the winter set-up.

You had 17" with the aero kit:confused:
