Re: Disc Brake Conversion

Good. We have alot of people chiming in about how they have taken care of this and done this themselves. Always good to see what others have done.

67 chevelle malibu / SS/ custom

Currently undergoing a metal work to remove all rust, if I ever get there.

Cant decide on prostreet or cruiser with a 4 speed.

Re: Disc Brake Conversion

I bought everything from The Right Stuff, I went from manual drums to power disks. http://www.getdiscbrakes.com/ I bought the disk brake kit and all the brake lines from front to back, everything fit perfect.
It took me and a buddy most of a day. works perfect.

Re: Disc Brake Conversion

I bought my conversion kit from OPGI and it moves the wheel out and can be an issue with wider profile tires and rims.
I did have to drill out the steering bracket on mine. GM made them in two size holes and OPGI vendor only makes the conversion one size.
