    Greetings to all! New member here. I recently ordered both the caliper studs & sleeves. Just wanted to say I had a great customer service experience! Items shipped out 3 hrs after ordered, tracking # sent @ that time, and arrived in 2 days.....just doesn't get any better!
    Awesome products (quality & ingenuity) AND terrific people to deal with.

    It's all my wife as this endeavor is her baby.

    By the way, she created a newer, simpler site. The dot com is finito and the address is caliperfexion.net as the host in Germany became difficult to communicate with. Instructions can be downloaded directly from the site. Here's to Godaddy!

    Any plans to make these for us regular Mustang owners? Especially the six piston Perf. pack cars?

    Edit: Having gone and looked at my brakes I see it's a totally different caliper design and the way it mounts does not look like it would allow a stud. Oh well.....

    The mobile version looks very clean and simple to use.

    Ford has kept the radial mount knuckle/caliper a GT350 exclusive to date. When/if Ford falls in line and upgrades Patti will have a part for those too. Can't wait for the upcoming GT500/whatever. In talking with a Ford Braking engineer about it was hinted that the current Caliperfexion stud length may have to be slightly elongated. That tells me yet another rotor diameter increase which would necessitate a 20" wheel. Looking forward to this one!

    It is. Easy to make product changes on the fly too and it integrates Square (merchant services) perfectly.

    I love my Caliperfexion studs and extensions. I’ve swapped pads 7 or 8 times now...easy peasy.

    My bad if this has been asked before but is this relevant to the Boss 302s?

    No, because you can take the pads off without removing the caliper.

    The only radial mount Mustang caliper is that of the Brembo 6-piston as used on the GT350. You cannot use a stud on a side mount caliper and as mentioned, you can pull the pads through the top anyway.

    The GT350 calipers do not have a removable bridge so your must remove the whole caliper to change the pads. With the caliper studs it's a breeze. This is similar to many other cars including Porsche's.

    Sorry... Late to the party. Just had my GT350 on track for the first time. What is the group consensus on replacement front pads for that Brembo 390?
