Brake system

Does anyone have information on upgrading the braking system on the 90's T-Bird to the Lincoln LSC system?

Please post any other upgrades you might have done so I can get suggestions.

I have always had problems with the front rotors getting "out of true" and was told that the front brakes are undersized for the V8--there is just too much heat generated. I was also told that there wasn't enough room to install larger brakes. I never followed up with another mechanic to confirm this--I just keep re-doing the rotors.

I would also be interested in any ways to upgrade the brakes.

the mn12 brakes are to small for the v6 or the v8, the MKVIII brakes are a direct bolt in, there not much better but they do improve stopping and warping. you could also go with a KVR dual piston 10.8" brake kit. or upgrade to a 17"+ wheel and go with the 13" brake kit. check tccoa.com for more info on the brake kits and install.
