you could go with the front brakes for a 94-95 stang (bigger rotors and bigger calpers, but you would have to find some five lug wheels ) or refresh your breaking system . frame ties (weld in's) and a strut tower brace will stiffin it up but not so much that it rides rough ( i have that done to my 87 and it made it tighter but not to tight .) cross drilled rotor and bigger calipers are also available for our cars and they won't hurt your wallet to much

or you could jump up to the larger 11 inch rotor set up that 87-93 mustangs came with unlike 86 and below that have 10 inch rotors....all you need to do that is 87-93 spindles, rotors...I went with blind drilled/slotted ebc's and ebc pads and stock calipers and brake hoses..all this cost less than 375.00and it stops well!!!
