Default brakes

Just up dating my 69, using SSBC (stainless steel brake company) they have a big site. I am changing out my front stock disc rotors to a slotted and drilled rotor and doing a conversion to disc on rear using there kit that will allow the stock rims to be used if I wish to. Princing seams to be in the middle to a little above but there are so many different ways to go with all the different upgrades. Good luck

www.steeltechsolutions.com had a setup. They also offered brackets and told you what calipers and rotors to use from the bone yard or parts store.
