    Brakes JB weld to fix brake fluid leak?

    I know I know this is probably a terrible idea, but I recently installed a wilwood proportioning valve because my stock one was leaking. When I installed this, on the inlet side the brake line was slightly bent and caused me to strip the female threads on the proportioning valve. I went on my...

    Brakes Bleeding the brakes

    I installed an adjustable proportioning valve and now I need to bleed the brakes. Do I need to jack up all 4 sides of the car to do this? I can’t locate the bleeder valve on the rear drums so I feel like I really have to get under and behind them for it to work.

    Weld Prostar, Wilwood Brake Combo fitment?

    I plan on getting a set of 15x4 Weld Prostars to throw on my 93 notch. I on ordered the Wilwood Forged Dynalite Front Brake kit with fox spindles.

    Brakes Am I flaring my brakes the wrong way?

    I stripped one of my flare nuts and I am attempting to replace it. I cut the line and put the new nut on. Now I am trying to double flare the line. I really don’t understand though. I have been practicing this on some 5/16 transmission cooler hardline that I cut off of my car. I could not get...

    Proportioning valve leaking, of course.

    My brake fluid has been leaking for a while now but has just recently got much worse. It used to be a slow leak and I had to fill up on fluid every 2 months or so, but 2 days ago I filled the fluid up and it is already completely empty after about 2 hours of driving. I looked for the leak and I...

    Chirping noise every time wheel spins

    I recently (about 1 week ago) had my brake shoes and springs changed on my 1986 Mustang hatch and I have noticed a chirping sound coming from my rear wheels every time they spin. I can only hear it in the cab when the windows are down and I'm driving along side a curb or a wall or another car so...

    master cylinder upgrade and brake booster question

    I was just thinking of changing the master cylinder and brake booster on my 1985 mustang. Everything on the braking system is stock but was just curious if I would benefit from switching the master cylinder and brake booster to a newer system?

    No power steering or brakes

    Hello, I just installed a power steering pump on my 97. I watched a bad video on how to bleed the system and did it wrong. After installing, I jacked up the car and crunk up the car(I know, this is where I messed up.) I turned the wheels from side to side a few times and had no air so I thought...

    Brakes Cadillac ATS calipers installed!

    Finally completed the install, minor modifications to calipers and spindles to make them work but well worth it. I would recommend using Mustang5L5 install kit which includes spacers to center the rotor and new threaded inserts to space the caliper correctly on the rotor. So with all new parts...

    Reoccurring squeak/chirping noise coming from rear.

    Howdy! I've been having this strange issue with my 2002 Mustang GT (114k miles) for several years now. I keep getting a chirp/squeak from what sounds like the rear of the car. It does not do it when idling, it can be heard driving around in parking lots or going over bumps and sometimes even...

    No brakes

    Hi I recently replaced my master cylinder because I figured that would fix my problem of not being able to stop when I press the brake pedal. System was bled by the books after replacing and brake pads were inspected and are almost brand new. Although, an ABS light does come on and I have not...

    Hydro-boost

    I have a 2000 GT and ordered a new hydro-boost. I was wondering what the full process of removing the hydro is? Is there a bleeding process? Do I have to get new fluid? Is there gaskets, o-rings...etc I have to replace? Please let me know the steps and other resources I need. Thank you!

    Handbrake barely holds

    Hey again everyone, my 02 mustang GT just doesn't hold the way it should. I have a 5 speed so it's a must for me... The problem is that is grips pretty well on slat ground but if it's a little incline, it rolls back and my car relies on 1st gear to hold it. A little worry some as If I have a...

    Big brake kit on the cheap?

    Hey everyone, I had a little bit of a odd question. I have a 02 gt and I have a hard time spending 1500 for a big brake kit. Although I'd love the added braking power, I can't get myself to make that purchase. I was wondering if there's bigger calipers or just better ones that directly fit that...
