Can't find really good front/rear cross-drilled breaks for GT...
I have been looking for a long time but can't find any Rear big break kit nor cross-drilled for my GT, only GTS...anyone have any links for a GT rear break kit (big or cross-drilled)?

If it helps, i will get getting a turbo so don't know if cross-drilled will work fine or will i need a big break kit...i just can't find anything for the rear brakes, all for just the front on the GT...please help!

cross drilled will crack. I wouldn't get them. Get slotted. SSBC makes a disc conversion that's slotted.

The other reason is you have rear drums. Get a GTS rear disc conversion, then you can get the GTS stuff... thumbsup Or go to SSBC and get the disc conversion. You cant get discs for the rear without those.

I would not bother much with the rear. When you brake car is on the front so the stock rear does what needed. wink

a rear disc conversion is mainly for aesthetics since it only handles like 5-10% of the braking power compared to the fronts...

alright thanks guys! so should i get a big break kit or slotted??? which ones would you go with? I will be getting some rims and 17" tires and lowering 1 3/8" so would it be better just to get slotted right now? of course i will go with Brembo or Rotora!

While you upgrading, you might as well go big.
