There's no need to upgrade brakes when switching to 17" or 18" rims.

You will need to make sure that the rims you get are in the correct Tbird/Cougar bolt pattern. Look around the Tires/Wheels forum for more info.

For mustang bolt pattern you need mustang front hubs and mustang cobra (IRS style) rear hubs.

There's only one way mustang bolt pattern it's the best way and only way the other way u are limited to wheel options, the rear hubs are 155 each if u need a pair let me know the front is easy by mustang front hub assemblies from 96-04 there cheap u can get the pair off eBay 75 tops

You can also save the hub swaps and get the Bullitts in the Tbird pattern from the Custom Wheel Shop if they still have them. I found it cheaper than doing the Mustang pattern swap. Works with rear disk or drum.

You'd need SN95 mustang calipers to do that. You'll also have a smaller pad and non vented rotor compared to the stock MN12 rear disc setup. You'll also lose all parking brake function

If he gets disk parts from a thunderbird they will work just fine, parking brake and all. I had to redrill my rear rotors for it.
