Summit Racing is now offering Stainless Steel Brakes Disc Brake Conversion Kits for your classic GM muscle car. With prices ranging from $580 to over $1200, chances are you’ll find exactly what you need for your build, whether it be a street competitor or for serious track use.
Applications for the drum to disc kits include 1962-74 Chevy II/Nova, 1964-72 GM A-bodies, and 1967-69 Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. The SSBC kits include GM-style single piston iron calipers, 11 inch rotors, conversion spindles, master cylinder, pads, flex hose, and all necessary brackets and hardware. A noteworthy feature is that the SSBC conversions will fit inside 14-inch wheels, for those who want to keep their cars looking as stock as possible.
There are also SuperTwin Disc Brake Kits available for the 64-72 GM A-bodies, which feature SuperTwin two-piston calipers that offer better stopping performance with less pad deflection. This kit includes larger 13 inch slotted rotors with SSBC’s Xtra Life plating, which prevents rust and corrosion. This kit is recommended for wheel sizes 15′ and up.
So, regardless of which kit you choose you can improve your muscle car’s stopping power by simply purchasing a kit, rather than sourcing the various parts yourself. (Trust us, this is a big convenience.)
