What's in the Box

Info

This kit allows you to put front disc brakes on your 1955-64 fullsize Chevy passenger car (Bel-Air, Biscayne, Impala, 150 Series, 210 Series) OEM spindles (will NOT work with dropped spindles). It will work with 14" wheels intended for disc brakes, as well as most 15" (or larger) wheels. Works with 5 on 4-3/4 inch bolt patterns.

Use with our 11" rotor 910-65390 and metric caliper 910-31045 (see Notes). This kit will increase track width 3/8" per side or or 3/4" total when installed.

Kit Includes:

  • Brake brackets
  • Hardware

Instructions (PDF)

Notes

  1. Specific only to full size Chevy spindle applications. Will not work with either dropped spindles or Buick, Olds, or Pontiac applications.
  2. Kit can be used with OEM 11" rotors from '69-'72 Chevelle/Monte Carlo, '69-'74 Nova, '70-'72 Cutlass/442, '69-'72 GTO/Lemans/Grand Prix, '71-'74 Pontiac Ventura.
  3. To use any of the above rotors, you will also need inner bearing assembly 912TS6. The outer bearing cone in the rotor is the correct one for your '55-'64 spindles (our replacement is 912TLM11910).

introduction into disc brakes

March 30, 2015
When first looking at this kit, it looks pretty good. A good intro kit to update your hotrod, low rider etc. But that soon changes, the kit does not have any detailed instruction, so if you are a first timer at upgrading drum brakes to disc brakes, be really for a lot of guess work. My kit was supplied with a few wrong parts that stopped my forward progress. I ended up going to the local parts place to get what was needed to continue. The bracket in the kit seems to be one of the stronger pieces in the kit, but this too could use some fine tuning. You get what you pay for, if I did it over, I would go with a higher end kit.....even with it being more money. It would be worth it...less headaches.. I hope.

If you have the correct rotors you will also need the bearings required for the conversion. Cone 912TLM67048 (Industry #LM67048), Cup 912TLM67010 (Industry #LM67010). With the correct bearings it will allow the rotor to go further in for installation of the castle nut and cotter pin and also for proper fit of the caliper.
