You are purchasing one rear disc brake conversion kit with drilled and slotted rotors. Drilled and slotted rotors allow for better cooling and help prevent dust build up that can happen with standard rotors. This kit is designed to upgrade the original factory wheels on the car. If using a wire wheel or after market rim, spacer plates may be needed. If you would like spacer plates included with the kit please select from the options above. This kit is made with a 5 by 5 (5x5) bolt pattern. If a different bolt pattern is needed please contact us directly. This kit is for 12-Inch rotors to use with the original 15-Inch factory wheels. If a larger rotor is desired, please select our "Big Disc Brake" kits.
A new emergency brake cable will be needed when installing this rear disc brake system. This is not included in the standard kit but can be added using the options above if desired. THIS CABLE WOULD BE A CUSTOM ORDER ITEM BASED ON THE MEASUREMENTS YOU PROVIDE. You will need the overall length and conduit length (as seen in the diagram below) of the cable. Please select whether a single cable or 2 cables are needed for your set up. If 2 cables are required for your system, please check the measurement of each cable individually. Depending on how your cable system is set up under the vehicle, each cable could vary in length so do not assume they will both be the same. It is recommended that you measure the emergency brake cable AFTER installation of the disc brake kit to get the most accurate measurement.
It is recommended that the booster and master cylinder are upgraded when changing to a disc brake system. Please see our combo kits that include a booster and master cylinder if you do not already have one.
The use of this kit requires creating a dual line brake system. This requires custom changing of the original the brake lines and installing additional tubing. If you would like standard 3/16-Inch tubing included, please select the option above.
