    I have a '65 I6. I'm going to be doing a V8 swap down the road, so I'm planning ahead. On Craigslist, I've found a disc brake setup from a late-model Granada. The setup includes rotors, calipers, and spindles. He's asking $250. Does this sound like a fair price? I just bought my first project...

    I'm putting in new soft lines with for my disc brakes and I'm having trouble getting the old lines off. The passenger side came off with not too much trouble, but the drivers side is being impossible. The connectors are starting to round off, is there anything I should try other than yanking out...

    Hi. I have a 66 Mustang with front disk brakes. I have a distribution block like in the attach pic. The inlet for the front brakes is currently attached to the side of the distribution block (marked to front brakes). Should it actually be attached to the top (marked inlet from M/C front)...

    I just bought a 1989 Mustang LX a couple weeks ago. It has 4 wheel disc brakes and a 5 lug conversion. The e-brake is not hooked up and it's designed for rear drum brakes. I'm not familiar with the workings of it but this leads me to believe it needs an adapter of some sort. I'd like to get...

    Hi y'all... New to the site and just had some general questions about parts for my 67 Coupe. After having some welding done to fix rust and such, I'll be getting my car back in a week or two. I see a bunch of talk about changing axles, engines, etc etc. How do you guys find out where...

    My dad is fighting with his commuter a 97 Nissan pickup. No fire. Tried everything. Long story short he tried a used ECM from a local salvage yard and it didn't work. He now has a $100 credit and has offered it to me. It's unlikely they will have any classic mustangs. What could I pick up...

    I know this is being a cheapskate but I was wondering if there's any way to indivisually purchase the right discs, calipers, springs and things to upgrade my brake system at a lower cost than the 1,000.00 bucks? I'm rebuilding my car but my pockets are running a bit thin, 7k invested so far

    I am looking to add disc brakes up front on a 68 mustang w a 351W, 17" wheels, shelby drop, and a few other mods. Any suggestions on going with SSBC, Baer, or Willwood, not to mention some of the other kits like late model kits? Thanks for your feedback!
