Good slotted and drilled brake rotors with pads for the money
If you have a 3rd gen Taurus SHO then you know this bull means business even if parts are phased about by Ford. They should have corrected a major issue with the engine. Nothing that welding can not fix! In the meantime if you need decent brakes that may squeal a tiny bit when heated (squeal stopper and all new hardware still doesnt silence) then buy it! Stops on a dime, does not squeal 85 percent of the time and my 98 SHO still stops and rides! For the money its a great buy! Do not know longevity yet and even if it @ 5 years I can not give a 5 star rating with the 15 percent of times theyre squeaking. Hardly happens but is annoying and may prevent a future purchase. Want a complete upgraded brake system regardless! Is as described and guaranteed will stop your ride all the time!
