Mustang II Big brakes

Hello all new here
I'm looking for a company that makes a set of 11" brakes for my mustang II front end that doesn't set the wheels out further than stock. I'm really limited on the width of my front end in fact I need to go with the 5/8s narrower control arms in the future.
Thank you for any ideas.

I went through this with my Willys before narrowed a-arms were really accepted. I finally just went and put the 11 in Granada rotors on and ground off the inner lip of the fenders. I searched for the best combination of tires and rims. The Goodrich T/A 205 60 15 seems to be the best over all. You get a faily wide tire and short profile and short diameter. I have the deepest back space alloable onthe Convo Pro wheels. I finally sacrificed 1/2 in in ride height and just live with a larger turning radius. It doesn't matter going down the road but squeezing into parkig spots and getting in and out of the garage is a bit twisty.

I think Willwod makes a large rotor system but it is pretty spendy.
