1971 Mustang Brakes
Mustang enthusiasts go to great lengths to get extra power out of their cars. More powerful engines, performance transmissions, sticky tires, removed weight — there are many ways to wring more speed out of your 1971 Mustang. While we fully support this quest for increased speed, we are also guilty of slowing you down. When the time comes to hit the brakes, you need to know that they’re going to work flawlessly. That’s why CJ Pony Parts carries hundreds of brake parts for your classic ’Stang. From major components to small seals and hardware, you’ll find your first-generation Mustang parts right here.

Regular Maintenance Is KeySome old-car projects aren’t as urgent as others. While we all love a new paint job, freshened interior and decorative touches such as decals and stripes, they aren’t going to affect the drivability or safety of your car. Other factors, however, need to be checked frequently and kept in good repair, such as your tires, fuel system and brakes. The last thing you want to find out is that your brakes are faulty when you’re out on the road. A frequent check of your entire braking system should include:
• Wear of your front brake pads and rotors.
• Wear of your rear brake shoes and drums.
• Brake fluid levels and any leaks or fluid losses.
• The general condition of the hoses and lines.
A visual inspection — along with a test of your brakes with a few panic stops (in a safe area with no traffic) — will highlight any concerns you might have with your Mustangs brakes. Once you know what you need, it’s time to hit the CJ Pony Parts online catalog and start choosing your replacement or upgrade brake parts.
Original or Upgrade?At the very least, we encourage all of our customers to maintain their 1971 Mustang to original braking standards. We carry original-style replacement parts so you can keep your Mustang stock and safe. You can pick and choose the individual pieces you need or purchase a complete kit for your front and rear brakes to be sure you haven’t forgotten anything.
If you have added extra power and weight to your car, and you plan to do some racing or hard weekend driving, we suggest you check out our rear disc conversion kits. You’ll have added stopping power and greater fade resistance that only modern four-wheel disc brakes can provide.
In all cases, we offer fast, free shipping on orders that are above the minimum value, and a secure, easy-to-use website with all of the details you need. Contact our sales team today, and we can help you get started on your 1971 Mustang brake upgrades!
