Q: Advice on buying brake pads and rotors for a '95 Mustang DT

asked by on

Yes go ahead, but realize that you are using the top of the line Akebono. You can use the cheapest rotors out there and they won’t make any noise because those pads are such good pads. If you would like to have rotors or brake pads installed on the car for you, they can supply the parts you need and properly fit them on your car.
