I have read quite a few threads on different websites on doing the disc brake conversion. As it seems each person has their own desires/needs when doing it, it seemed best to post my questions rather then rely on the different info I have read.
I have multiple Mustangs that I would like to convert over to disc in time. My current plans is to do a front swap and add a power master kit at the same time. I haven't fully decided if I should swap the rears later or stick with just the fronts. From what I have read, it won't give me much but any difference can be enough to prevent an accident. Is there any specific information I will need to do a rear swap later?
In my case, I am looking for kits that allow me to replace with original parts. I don't want to remember where each of my cars got their brakes from. I would rather spend a little extra up front and buy the bolt in upgrades. I went out and measured, each of the cars has 15" rims on them. My hope is to keep the original rims in most cases.
Do all kits require me to make/acquire small pieces of brake line to connect them in the master cylinder area? 1967 Mustang Automatic V8 with power steering
This car is the one I plan to do in the next couple weeks so I want to order parts soon. The 2 options below seem to be the cheapest fairly complete kits but I can't tell if I will need any brake lines or if I should replace the brake lines in the car? CSRP discbrakeswap Mustang Disc Brake Conversion Kits SWAP1
cost would be approx $850 for SWAP.1.1.4/PBU 1967 - 1970 Disc Brake Conversion Kit 5 Lug Power
- Kentucky Mustang
cost would be approx $800 but I would have to post to my facebook to get the 5% off
I have read many positive reviews about the CSRP upgrades but have not found any on the kentucky mustang kit. Anyone have any experience with their upgrade kits? Most other websites I checked seems to be at least a couple hundred dollars higher then these options. 1968 Mustang Manual I6 with manual steering
This car is one I would like to do within a couple months as I can afford to buy a second kit. I just can't seem to find a low cost kit that would allow me to keep the 4 lug rims and add power brakes. Kentucky Mustang has a kit for the 64-66 4 lug but doesn't seem to have one for the 68. CSRP just wants to swap to 5 lug and I would rather not buy new rims at this point. 1966 Mustang Manual V8 with manual steering
This car might be pretty far out as it is my project that I plan to do a restore on. It is currently just the shell. 1964 - 1966 Disc Brake Conversion Kit 5 Lug Power
- Kentucky Mustang
approx $850 with the same facebook thing
I notice this kit doesn't come with the brake pedal. Is the stock one ok on the 66 with manual transmission? I also didn't find a kit at CSRP that would do the power brake upgrade for a manual transmission so I only found this as a cheap option.
Mainly just looking for anything I should know before I spend the money on getting them. Thanks for any help.
