Justin: If you're looking for an affordable brake upgrade for that '94 to '04 V6 or GT at home that will also look good behind your favorite set of wheels, then you'll wanna check out the C&L drilled and slotted rotors that we have here today. Now, this set of front rotors will feature an iron casting along with that silver-zinc plating, all for right around the low $100 price point for the pair. Install's gonna get, I would say, a relatively soft two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here. Take you a few hours to complete from start to finish as we'll show you later in the video.So, again, this is a great low-buck option for SN95 owners out there looking for a subtle upgrade or possibly a stock replacement, and don't wanna fork out the hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a big brake kit from someone like Brembo or Willwood. Now, the C&L rotors, on the other hand, will be a solid option to piece your own kit together using a pad of your choice for a budget-friendly setup that will not only perform better than your stock equipment, but also look much better as well.But let's dive a little bit deeper here with the C&L options. And these guys start off as a cast iron blank rotor, and from there, they do get the slotted and drilled treatment using precision machine rounded slots and beveled holes, and then the entire package is finished off with that silver-zinc plating. It's gonna really help reduce or prevent corrosion on your non-friction-related surfaces. Now, the idea behind the whole slotted and drilled treatment is a pretty simple one. It's done to help reduce brake temperatures. Now, cooler brakes oftentimes result in less brake fade, and that's just gonna lead to more consistent performance, along with a much better look behind your favorite set of wheels.Now, aside from the cooling benefits, those added slots are going to help remove any excess brake dust, debris, or moisture, keeping that rotor surface along with the pad surface nice and clean for more effective stopping. And again, just more consistency. Finally, guys, I do wanna point out that the C&L rotors are looked over, they're mill-balanced first before being shipped out, just to help ensure that the owner isn't going to run into any noise, vibration, or shaking while braking.But now we wanna get into the install, guys. Site's gonna call this one, again, middle of the road, two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe three hours at absolute max to complete from start to finish. But now, to give you a better idea of just how things will go down on your SN95 at home, here is a detailed walkthrough along with a tool breakdownMan: Tools used for this install, 1/2-inch drive ratchet, 15-millimeter socket, a flat blade screwdriver, and a 12-millimeter ratcheting wrench. Hey, guys, I'm gonna show you how to install our front pad and rotor kit here on our '99 Mustang, so let's get started. So, the first thing we're gonna do is uninstall our front caliper here and remove our caliper bracket that holds it in place. That way, we'll get these out of the way, give us access to removing our rotor, and we'll pull our rotor off.So now we're gonna take our caliper off. By doing that, we're gonna have to remove this 12-millimeter bolt and this one up here. I'm gonna take my 12-millimeter ratcheting wrench, get it on there, and break it loose, and remove it. And that's that one. Now we have one up top here. We're gonna do the same with this one. And now I have those two out of the way. Just gonna be able to take your caliper and slide it out of the way like that. So, next, we're gonna remove our two pads here. I'm gonna take a flat blade screwdriver and just pop them out. Get this one out of the way, same with this one. Pop the pad out of the the pocket it's in.Next, we're gonna take this bolt here and this bolt here out, that'll remove our caliper bracket, which will give us access to remove our rotor. So now we're gonna remove these two bolts right here. They're 15 millimeters. I'm taking my 15-millimeter socket with my 1/2-inch drive ratchet and I'm gonna break these loose. And these are on pretty tight, so, you could use a breaker bar. I think ours have been off already, so, I think I can break it with just this. That's one. Same on the top one. There's two. So now I'll remove these and get these out of our way.I'm just gonna set them up out of the way up there, same as this one. Now, I'll remove our caliper bracket. So now we have our bracket off and our caliper. Sometimes you have to smack the rotor with a hammer, ours have been off a couple of times, I'm just gonna have to just wiggle it and pull it right off like that. And then you're gonna wanna repeat this whole uninstall procedure on the opposite side. So now we have our old rotor off, we're going to install our new rotor. Just gonna take it like this, slide it on. Next, we'll install our caliper bracket.So now we're gonna install our caliper bracket. We're gonna push in on our rotor here. Get our bracket in place. Take our 15-millimeter here and get this through. Line up with the hole. You're gonna have to push in on the caliper and hold the bracket at the same time. Sometimes these clips come off. I'll just lay that out of the way. And we got that one started, this one on the bottom here. And get this one started. I'm gonna run them in by hand as much as I can. Then I'm gonna take my 15-millimeter on my 1/2-inch ratchet here. Tighten these up.Now, you're gonna wanna make them pretty tight. Matter of fact, you're gonna wanna look and torque them to manufacturer spec. They gotta be very tight when you put these back on. So, next, what we're gonna do is put our stock pads back in where we took them out from. Just like that. We'll put the front one in place. Sometimes you gotta push down on the metal clip there like I was just doing to get it in place.Next, I'm gonna take our caliper, put it back in place. Install our two 12-millimeters, and the one up top here. I'm gonna take my 12-millimeter ratcheting wrench, tighten these up. Same as the top one. And now you're gonna wanna just repeat this whole install procedure on the opposite side.That wraps up this review and install of our C&L Super Sport Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotors Front Pair for '99 to '04 Mustang GTs and V6 models.
