Third Generation Ford Mustang Brakes

Foxbody Mustang Brakes

Foxbody (third-generation) Mustangs are popular among collectors, restoration fans and those searching for a deal. With production years from 1979 to 1993, the Foxbody series was unlike anything consumers had seen from the Mustang brand. Ford engineers made a compact performance vehicle that was fast enough for the track and satisfied American families’ needs as gas prices continued to rise throughout the 1970s.

Ford fanatics recognize the Foxbody era as the moment the Mustang returned to its roots. The increase in horsepower with each new model excited drivers and officials at the Ford Motor Company fine-tuned exterior surfaces to make these releases lighter than the Mustang II generation’s coupes.

Scooping a budget-friendly pony car with over 200 horsepower is possible when you opt for a Foxbody Mustang in the modern era. Top Flight Automotive wants to help you stay safe behind the wheel, so we stock replacement brake parts, kits and accessories for your 1979-1993 Mustang. Keep your ride ready for the road with all the aftermarket components you need under one roof.

Maintaining Your Foxbody Mustang’s Brake System

You must have a powerful set of brakes to bring you to a complete stop. With some models within the Foxbody series being over 40 years old now, it’s safe to assume your original equipment manufacturer (OEM) braking system has experienced damage. Driving through puddles, exposing your pony car to temperature changes and commuting causes wear and tear, so it’s crucial you know where to look for OEM-style replacement parts and upgrades.

Top Flight Automotive connects drivers to one of the most expansive collections of Foxbody Mustang brakes online. Change out rusting pieces or introduce an entirely new braking system to your 1979-1993 Mustang for a noticeable increase in performance. Our experts grant you access to everything necessary to maintain OEM braking systems or rejuvenate assemblies beyond factory specifications. We separate ourselves from the competition with products from brands like:

  • ACP
  • Auto Accessories of America
  • Baer Brake Systems
  • Daniel Carpenter

Understanding the Foxbody Mustang Braking System

Select submodels featured rear drum brakes before the four-wheel disc brake layout became an industry standard for performance vehicles. Depending on whether you’re the original owner, you may find yourself in need of drum and disc brake components to revitalize your ride.
