where to buy cobra 13'' brake kit?

I was just wondering where is a good place to get the cobra brake kit for a good price. I'm looking to do a bolt circle change for the 5x4.5 pattern, and put some nice 99 cobra wheels on there.

Alot of the OEM mustang wheels would look funny on a tbird, but the 99 cobras are just fivestars with the svt center caps.

Also, has anyone on this board upgraded the rear brakes to the 11'' cobra rears?

Its a shame these 4000lb tbirds got hockey puck brakes, even with the sport package they are still not up to par.

Thanks,
Justin

Jack great link, have you ordered from those guys and what was your experience?

I see they have the 99 silver cobra wheels for 105 each, those are my favorite wheels.

Ed - thanks for posting that great article.

No, I have not ordered from them, but tons of Mustang guys have, and I have only heard great things. Their prices are great, and they'll do GP's on top of those prices to boot.
Next year I will most likely be going with the 13" front brake kit and 98 Cobra wheels from GEF. But untill then, I cannot say that I have bought anything from them.
