Ford Brake Kit Front Nakamoto MD679, 54042 - 1ABFS00013

Hearing squeaking noises from the wheels? This may be the wear tabs on the brake shoes saying, "it is time for replacement." Aging brakes can also result in a pulsation from the brake pedal or long stopping distances. Brakes should be inspected every 10,000 miles or any time the tires are removed. They may need frequent replacement such as every 20,000 miles if used in stop and go traffic. Brakes can last longer if the vehicle is used primarily for long highway trips.

Kit specifications:

  • Premium Posi Semi-Metallic brake pads
  • Includes 2 front rotors & a front brake pad set
  • Fits Driver & Passenger Side Front
  • Rotors with 5 lug holes
