Can you recommend a disc brake kit for this axle kit? I plan on putting this axle kit onto a 57 Chevy 2 door Bel Air hardtop (+3300 lbs). What disc brake kit will give me the best stopping power? The car has rear drum brakes also.

With the weight of your car using axle kit number 91639034 I would recommend an 11” rotor. Brake kit number 91031954 or 31953 utilizes 11” rotors.
