Not sure if this was posted in the past.

Only issue is these are huge compared to the 9 inch front disks. I would imagine that you could use an adjustable proportioning valve to make things a bit more equal. Unless someone has found a source for larger 4 lug front disks? The same manufacturer lists front disks for the MII, but 5 lug only.

I'd prefer using easily obtainable parts like rotors and calipers for the rear, but this is all I've seen for the 4 lug.

This is the link for their 5 lug MII disk brakes.

The only Ford car front disk brake kit they list on their website is for the Mustang II/74-80 Pinto now. And that is the 5 lug kit only. :(

Thanks,

In the past I would cut off the stock studs of an early (71/73) Pinto rotor and drill new holes for longer studs before they showed up in speed shops. All I used was a mill, but you could use a drill press if you took care. Doing this on a 9" rotor should be no harder than on a 10 or 11 rotor. You might have to plug one of the old holes but there again, no big deal. Would it be true? Try checking a new 9" Pinto rotor and you will see how far from true they are after they get here from China. All that stuff is mass produced and as such, it has a + or - tolerance. I've done this for years with out a single problem. This way you could have a big rotor and 4 lugs too.
