Upgrading the Ford Galaxie With Disc Brake Technology

Posted by toby on Mar 15, 2014 2:28:59 PM

Named to tap into the nation’s fascination with newly created space program, the Ford Galaxie was an instant classic that combined performance and value with distinctive styling.  Manufactured in model years 1959-1974, the Ford Galaxie was a full-sized car designed to compete with the Chevy Impala.  Older Galaxies are in decent supply, so Ford enthusiasts have been able to acquire these classics for reasonable prices in recent years.  We just heard from the owner of a 1963 Galaxie looking to upgrade his drum brakes, and since there are so many of these cars on the road, we figured it made sense to share some advice with our readers.

Disc Brake Conversion Kits for Classic Ford Trucks

Posted by toby on Dec 18, 2013 2:45:38 PM

This is not the end of the world but it does mean an additional step that nobody enjoys--especially if king pin replacement isn’t necessary. The spindles from our older kits have become very difficult to obtain so we decided it was time for a change. Our new front disc brake conversion kits for older Ford trucks are a huge improvement!
