Brakes

A classic Mustang was already a fast car in its day, but the custom creations people are turning out now are truly impressive. There’s no better way to complement all that power than with a quality set of brakes. Driving fast is more enjoyable with the confidence that you can slow things down if something unexpected happens. If you’re counting seconds at the race track, you’ll find that an upgrade to your car’s brakes will allow you to brake later into a corner which translates into faster lap times and more passes. No matter your driving style, we have brakes to fit the bill. Check out our selection of 1968 Mustang brakes and give your car an upgrade that will instill confidence and keep you safer at the same time.

1968 Brakes

1968 Mustang Brake Parts

Are your 1968 Mustang’s brakes performing at the level you need to rein in your high-powered steed? If you’re still using the ones that came on the car from the factory, there’s a good chance they aren’t.

Getting better performance from your car doesn’t require an upgrade to disk brakes, although we highly recommend it. Drum brake technology has advanced as well, and it might be just a few small parts that you need to restore a firm and confident feel to your brake pedal. Here are a few of the parts you should take a look at from our selection:

• Brake shoes or pads: If your 1968 Mustang’s brakes are drums, they use brake shoes. If they are disks, they use brake pads. These are the “wear items” that give your brakes something to grab when you put your foot down. When you don’t replace them, your braking performance suffers, and the side effects can be dust and a lot of unpleasant noise. Pick up a set of shoes or pads for an affordable improvement to your car’s stopping performance.
• Brake hydraulics: Brakes work by converting the input from your foot into the movement of hydraulic fluid. The system of lines and pistons responsible for doing this is complex, and you’ll want to make sure you’ve got everything in working order before you head out on the road. Some of our most popular 1968 Mustang brake parts are dual-bowl master cylinder conversions. This technology is used on every new car on the road today. It allows for redundancy in your brake system so that if your front brakes fail, the rears will still work or vice versa.
• Disc brake conversion kits: If your 1968 Mustang’s brakes are of the drum variety, and you’re ready to equip your car with some serious stopping power, there’s no better way to do it than by replacing them with a performance-oriented set of discs. With options from Scott Drake, Master Power and Rod & Custom, you can decide just how big to go. Some sets also include an upgraded rack-and-pinion steering system, so you can equip your car with power steering at the same time if it came with a manual rack.
