It would be the easiest to use the stock MUST II setup, but it is a small dia. rotor. There are kits (Fatman Fabrications) to use a larger chevy rotor and caliper on the FORD spindle.

Well...if you went to Granada spindles and aren't happy with the single piston sliding caliper, how about <a href="http://www.woodyg.com/fairlane/finfo/discs66.html" target="_blank">-this-</a>?

Kinda cool, eh?

well I like the info KULTULZ but it does not apply to the mustang 2 in stock config, as the MII has front steer spindles ie; rack is in front of crossmember. but the granada is rear steer, ... box in rear of crossmember. the info is great for anyone wanting to stick the rack and pinion behind the crossmember, but does not work well on a stock M II..

I only gave the information regarding the FORD calipers as an alternative to using GM calipers. The poster decided to go to GRANADA rotors to increase rotor size easily.

An adaptor can be fabricated for the MUST II spindle and the larger Granada rotor.

I believe this is what he has posted, that he has put Granada rotors (11") on MUST II spindles.

Hey! We FORD guys must maintain some semblance of self respect...

i know, i am useing a FoMoCo mustang II front end in my 32 ford, and i am indeen running granada 11 and a pair of old willwood dynalite II i found at a swap meet.

and the info is going to come in handy when i have to replace brakes on my dads 65 mustang, (that i built but sold to him to afford a hotrod build)

incidently i found out that a rack and pinion form a european Opel (GM) Ascona C, or Vectra A fits a 64-66 mustang.. saving about 2500 dollars over buying it from total controll inc. just some brackets and its in there..

Speedway Motors has an easy kit to put 11 disk brakes on you car. I used one on my '34 coupe and it works very well. The kit includes everything, rotors, calipers, pads, brackets, bearings, nuts and bolts for about $265.00.
This may be too late but hope it helps.
