    I just bought (and am gambling on as I have not yet found anyone else using them) a front brake bolt caliper kit from Caliperfexion that I will be putting on the car. I plan on trying to hit several track days a year with this car so this seems like it will save me some headache but I wanted to see if anyone else had experience with them

    The cool parts are:
    - there is now a stud with an ARP nut and washer instead of the factory bolt so easier to work with/on (9/16" 12 point)
    - there are screw on extensions to the stud so you can simply slide the caliper over when changing brakes and don't need to hold or find a way to hang the caliper.

    These are their pictures that sold me on giving them a shot.

    I had them installed but have changed the brake pads myself yet. It's a worthwhile mod if plan to do any tracking (not to mention having to use brand new Ford torque to yield bolts every time you change pads seems like a PITA).

    Someone is late to the party.

    You will need two sets. One for the car and the other to show off to people at Cars & Coffee.

    Yes, I currently have them installed on my GT350. They are def a quality piece and a much needed one. I have taken my calipers off twice and even from two times of removing them, the aluminum knuckle had already started shedding a small amount of material. This gives me piece of mind as I no longer have to remove the bolts. I have yet to do a pad change with them so can't comment there but I would imagine it will be a breeze.

    Sorry if this is common knowledge - did a search for Caliperfexion and nothing came up.

    This car is both my first Mustang and my first Ford. Excuse my ignorance.

    They are new - you purchase them separately. Just email them and they can help you get a set.

    Nope, never heard of them. What is this sorcery you speak of? *slightly sarcastic* ;)

    I have them and like them. I have yet to see how they hold up over time, but initial quality and shipping/packaging were terrific.

    Haha, so the consensus is that these are well known but not much posted about for noobs to discover, haha.

    Yep, that about sums it up.

    It makes for an easy brake job. Glad you discovered them.

    I purchased the 4130 studs with extensions. High quality hardware, very easy to install and work on. I recommend these to anyone who owns the car.

    The stud extensions are a nice addition. Since you've changed the brakes already, you know what a PITA it is dealing with the caliper while you're doing this. I think they're $40-45, money well spent.

    Good point. There's a sticky on parts, OEM and aftermarket. These bolts aren't on the front page...

    Reviews have been excellent for qualty and customer service :D

    You should be very happy with them and the extensions (a very cool and utilitarian addition to the product)

    You guys just don't know how to get his attention - I'll help.

    THE OEM SHIFTER IS NICE!

    He will be here shortly

    Be realistic, you won't trip him up with that. That will be deftly moved aside with "the OEM shifter was built to a price point."
