drop n stop. com i believe but they are granadas which i reccomend not to get but many do.. they stop awesome but have geometry probs..good read...

, i would talk to fatman fab i think they have something but ask if they are granadas.
i would cut the coils with a disc, but im sure you dont want to bottom out(being too low), so i would suggest the nascar type custom spindle from scp stock car racing .com i think is the site they can make you custom ones for pretty nice prices. thats my next move and i have every mod you can think of except coil overs, and i need it to be better.

i think for sure ud'd have to buy a baer kit for a granada if thats even available!lol but even so i was jus looking to drop the car with outh the suposid balljoit bind found in the shelby mod and i cant afford to re do all the brandnew suspension thats on their with some 1000 dollar global west stuff so im jus looking for sugestions without having to cut springs up and even then i dont think i will achieve the stance i want jus a lil fyi mustang plus 620 springs arent really 620's and i dont think they lower ur car a true 1" trust me i went to a certain other place and they tought me all about coil springs and i applied this new found knowledge to the 620's i hav and they arent really that great but for thee price whatever im gonna use maier racing stuff here soon and btw is there a link to the place that can make custom spindles?

The aftermarket "620" 1 inch drop springs, along with the upper control arm relocation, brings the front end down pretty good in a Cougar. Mine went down about 1-3/4" roughly.

For Granada spindles, the 99 - 04 Mustang V6 and GT aluminium PBR calipers for the 11" rotors can be bolted on with small adapters. Otherwise, you would have to make a caliper mount adapter for the Baer PBR calipers using the 3 bolt holes around the spindle stub as the mounting point. The 13" Baer kit you have probably has the same idea, except it mounts to the 4 original drum brake mounting points.


cheers

No Mustang II stuff. The Baer brakes are "70 Mustang" and the spindles are for 57-64 Fords. They said "must use Granada brakes"
