Can't seem to find the correct pads for the calipers I have. They are supposed to be for a 2003 Cobra. PBR Castings part #K247-047C
2 Different sets of pads 2 different brands and neither Brands fit! The Spring clips are spaced too wide apart and they don't fit inside the pistons.
One set are BrakeBest #MKD412
Other set are Hawk HPS#D412

Those are not 2003 Cobra calipers.

Those are 99-04 GT/V6 calipers for use with a 10.8" rotor. Also made by PBR, but not interchangeable with the Cobra spec brakes. This is a pin guided caliper, which means the pad is seated into the abutment and the caliper is mounted to the bracket by two pins.

These are Cobra brakes. Completely different caliper design which is why those pads aren't fitting the GT brakes you have. These are pad guided calipers. Which means the caliper clips onto the pads and then the pads are secured to the abutment.

Would you happen to have part numbers for the SVE ones that I'm needing? Trying to source the parts without paying upwards of $800 just for calipers.

Look hear for front pads for a GT. That should be what you need for those PBR calipers.

Edit:
Not sure that copied right.... here’s a screenshot of some Powerstop pads

Yes, get the Motorcraft ones from Rockauto. $130 each.Or you could go with a cheaper brand. Paint is cheap if they come unfinished.

Stay away from the overpriced SVE branding. Also....who wants calipers that say SVE?
