Finding Disc brakes

676 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  JamesW
My stang has drum brakes all around, I'd really like some disc's on the front. My problem, its about $1000 for the conversion kit. Can I buy any old recked car with disc brakes and put them on mine or do they have to be off a certain make and year.
Thank you

ps, I'm open to any other suggestions.

You can get brakes off:
-Another '70 Mustang
-71-73 Mustang
-Ford Granda (probably the easiest)

Some things you'll need to consider are bearing size and
brake proportioning....


'73 Stang 351W Lightning specs
'72 Stang
'65 Ford F-1
'91 Civic SI

I've been very happy with my disc brakes off of a '78 Granada.

I have about $500 wrapped up in the conversion.
I could have done it for less too.

I went the junkyard Granada conversion ran me about $270.00 with new rotors, bearings and seals, and lines. It would have been cheaper but I experimented with a couple of different brake line configurations.
check out my website for mounting Granada brakes...they'll fit your car.
