Hard Brake Pedal After Brake Upgrade?
Wanting to upgrade the braking system on your 2009-2014 Ford Mustang or already have and now are dealing with a hard pedal? This is because the stock Brake Booster was calibrated to provide a certain amount of "assist" witht he stock brakes. Going to a big brake setup requires moving more fluid against a larger caliper piston surface area, and that requires more "assist" from the brake booster to keep a stock pedal feel.

Jmac: Adding a big brake kit to your Mustang can often leave you with a touchy brake pedal. This is especially true for 2005 to '14 Mustangs.
Common solution is to use the '07 to '14 GT500 style power brake booster. This is a direct bolt on for non-Brembo packaged GTs as well as V6s, and it will reduce your power braking assist by about 30%, which gives you a better pedal feel, as well as better brake pressure modulation on both the track and the street.
Ford Racing has been using this exact booster on their FR500 and Boss 302 race cars for some now. You can have one, too. All you've got to do is order it from latemodelrestoration.com.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!!
