Q & A

What's in the Box

These kits allow you to mount front disc brakes on your 1955-1964 Chevy full-size car (Bel-Air, Biscayne, Impala, 150 Series, 210 Series). Front disc brakes provide a significant improvement in braking performance versus the drum brakes your old Chevy came with. This disc brake kit works with stock, drum brake spindles only - it does not work with 2" drop spindles. Kit will work with 14" wheels intended for disc brake applications, as well as most 15" (or larger) wheels.

Rotors are 11" diameter with 5 on 4-3/4" bolt pattern and calipers have 7/16"-20 inlets. This kit will increase track width 7/8" per side or 1-3/4" total when installed. 

  • 11" Rotors
  • 5 on 4-3/4" - bolt pattern
  • Metric calipers
  • Calipers mount behind axle (rearward)
  • Will work with 14" & larger wheels intended for use with disc brakes
  • Bearings, pads, brackets included
  • Seals and hoses
  • Hardware included
  • Increases trac-width 7/8" per side
  • For '55-'64 Chevy fullsize cars.

Notes

  1. This kit will not work with the original '55-'64 Chevy 4-wheel drum brake master cylinder. It does not have the capacity to supply the proper amount of pressure for front disc brakes. For best results, we recommend using master cylinder booster kit 910-31974 with this front disc brake conversion.
  2. Front drum-to-disc brake conversions also require a proportioning valve to be installed in the rear brake line circuit. The proportioning valve modulates pressure to the rear brakes which is necessary to prevent the rear brakes from locking up in an emergency stop situatiuon. Recommended master cylinder booster kit 910-31974 also incudes an adjustable proportioning valve to allow for a proper installation of front disc brakes.

Wilwood 120-11870-BK D154 Single Piston Floater Caliper, Black
(Part #83512011870BK)
                        Wilwood's D154 forged billet caliper is a direct bolt-on, lightweight, high-strength, extreme duty alternative to the OE cast iron calipers that were used on a wide range of factory disc brake equipped mid size GM cars and small trucks beginning in 1978. Use of this caliper can still be found on some GM models as late as the year 2002. The wide spread and affordable availability of D154 calipers and brake pad compounds also made it a popular choice in a number of restricted class competition categories and drum to disc conversions on all types of hot rods and street machines. There are three piston configurations available for the D154: A large 2.50" single piston, and two two-piston models featuring 1.62/1.62" or 1.12/1.12" pistons. All three calipers utilize stainless steel pistons. Stainless pistons are used to resist corrosion and retard heat transfer from the pads into the caliper body. High temperature, square faced bore seals are used to provide controlled piston retraction and reliable performance from the wider sealing face. This combination of components is a proven performer with long service life and a history of reliable performance in any type of driving environment, including extreme sustained high temperature racing applications. The caliper slide pin holes are fitted with dampening rings to minimize noise from vibration. The caliper is also fitted with bleed screws on both ends to facilitate mounting in any left hand or right hand, front leading mount, or rear trailing mount locations.

1955-57 Chevy Car Disc/Disc Brake Booster Master Cylinder Combo
(Part #91035557)
                        

When you put modern front & rear disc brakes on your '55-'57 Chevy car, you should update the master cylinder as well. Why not use one of these simple bolt-on power brake systems? Kits contain a 1" bore master cylinder with 1/2"-20 and 9/16"-18 outlets, 8" dual diaphragm booster, and a knob style proportioning/metering valve. Also includes the necessary hardware to mount the booster to your original '55-'57 Chevy brake pedal.

Measures 14-1/4" from firewall bracket to end of master cylinder.

Wilwood 290-0632 570 Brake Fluid, 12 oz Bottle
(Part #8352900632)
                        

Wilwood's specially formulated Hi-Temp 570° Racing Brake Fluid has a minimum 570 degree dry boiling point to withstand the severe heat requirements of automotive racing. Hi-Temp 570's low viscosity allows easy bleeding of your brake system, eliminating aeration of the brake fluid caused by foaming due to excessive pumping of the pedal. 

This high temp brake fluid comes in a convenient 12 ounce container hermetically sealed to guarantee against unwanted absorption of moisture which can drastically lower the fluids boiling point (fluid from larger containers tends to become contaminated with moisture, lowering its boiling point and making it unsuitable for racing applications). 

  • Dry Boiling Point:  573° F
  • Wet Boiling Point:  313° F

Red Line’s team of chemists formulate fully-synthetic lubricants using only the world’s finest base stocks. At Red Line, it’s not designed to be the cheapest – it’s built to be the best. Red Line only uses superior polyester-based products – resulting in lubricants that are extremely stable at high temperatures.

Synthetic CV-2 grease provides excellent water resistance, low temperature flow, and its very high melting point allows it to be used in high temperature wheel bearings, high angle and conventional CV-joints, chassis lubrication and many industrial applications.

  • Outperforms the best conventional or synthetic greases and lubes
  • Excellent high-temp stability, extreme-pressure protection, and water resistance
  • Used in a variety of applications with operating temps from -100°F to 500°F
  • Strong resistance to oxidation and corrosion, low evaporation and oil separation with a minimum effect on rubber seals
  • Contains an organic moly for chassis lubrication and high temp/high speed industrial equipment
  • Synthetic fluidity allows increases in bearing life up to 200%
  • Contains a red moly compound which is a superior lubricant to black moly disulfide lubricants
