It looks very similar to the discountined Baer kit. I was a late on getting one of those kits. I beleive the rotors are vented 12'' & the calipers are PBR single piston w/ parking brake, similar to the cobra's= '94-'04/ C-4's. What are you using for your front brakes?

I know how big they are I have a set, but one of my calipers might be sticking and if I go through SSBC I'd imagine it would be twice the price over the local autoparts store

Often with the big brake kits, you are forcing your self in to the corner you are identifying. Unless you can contact the company and ask if they are a caliper from another car or if it was "custom" to that kit. You can ask to see if they have a rebuild kit, or if they can provide you the info on what repair kit to order.

Looks like they are off a late 80's early 90's mustang or thunderbird

I had a bendix part number for pads and I checked the compatabillity listing for the number

I'd say a '94 mustang or a camero or a c-4 vette. More likey a camero or c-4. Measure the thickness of the rotor & that'll tell you a lot. There set up for a 11.75-12'' rotor.
