my only question is if the ones "with 16" rims" are the 278 mm fronts or the 260, that will make all the difference

From Teamneco:

Front rotor size is 278x24mm for all sports package Cougars and old 4 wheel disc brake 99's (born on date 1998)

Front rotor size for all I4 and non sports Cougs with drum rears is 260x24mm


Rear rotor size for all cars with disc brakes is 253x20mm

I just ordered a set of all 4 of them on Ebay. I was kinda cautious too because they make and drill the rotors themselves, but I supposed - how hard can it really be to make a rotor if you have a full CNC shop setup for it? I have read over *ALL* of their feedback and it all looks great so I'm not too worried. The only complaints they got were from user error anyway so it all seems pretty legit. Like I said, I ordered them and haven't gotten them yet so I can't say from personal experience. The only complaint I have so far is that they take FOREVER to ship them! I've been waiting almost 3 weeks and still no rotors or response from them. This might have something to do with the fact that I special ordered them in black though.

I'll keep you posted and let you know what I think when I do finally get them! I also ordered Steel Braided brake lines from Ebay, Hawk performance pads, and I'm debating what type of fluid to purchase still.

I have a set of these rotors for the front and rear. They've done me well in the front, but the back one's I've yet to get installed do to difficulties getting the old one off. The company was easy to work with also, I contacted them on aim several times and they were almost always there to answet my questions.

Jeff,
