1983 Mustang Brakes

Brakes

The brakes on any car are a regular maintenance item. No matter how you drive, your brakes are going to wear down over time. In the case of a performance car like the 1983 Mustang, your brakes probably work pretty hard, be it at the track or out on your favorite roads. Many enthusiasts will agree that the original brakes in the Fox Body Mustang were a little low on performance to begin with, and since they’ve likely been replaced many times over the years, there’s no telling what level of quality brakes yours has now. At CJ Pony Parts, we take your safety and performance seriously, which is why we have a complete lineup of brakes and parts to get you stopping properly.

1983 Brakes

More than Pads and Shoes

The most common brake parts that need attention are the front pads and rear discs. These are relatively easy to change, and can really make a huge difference in your brake performance. Your front rotors and rear drums are also parts that need to be changed from time to time as they will wear out with repeated use. But with a car that is over 30 years old, there are some other, less common brake parts to consider:

• Lines and hoses: These carry the brake fluid, and can rust and create leaks
• Rear parking brake cables: If you don’t use your parking brake frequently, it can seize or fail
• Seals, gaskets and fittings: Over time, these can degrade, and eventually create fluid leaks

It’s important to inspect your brakes on a regular basis and determine if anything needs replacing. And if you already have some brake components to replace, it’s also smart to do some preventative maintenance so that you’re starting off with safe, reliable brakes again.
