Converting the Chevelle to Front Disc Brakes

Posted by toby on Jan 20, 2014 6:00:49 PM

1970 Chevelle The Chevelle is without question, one of the most popular mid-sized Chevrolets ever sold.  Outstanding performance, great style, and an affordable sticker price made this GM legend one of the most recognizable icons from the muscle car era.   If you attend just about any car show anywhere in the country, this timeless classic is typically one of the most common mid-size vehicles in attendance. For all of these reasons, we felt it was important to offer Chevelle front disc brake and rear disc brake conversion kits for vehicles manufactured from 1964-1972.  We recently received an inquiry from the owner of a 1968 Chevelle asking about available front disc brake conversion kit options, so we figured we would share our answer with our readers.

The good news is that Master Power Brakes specializes in make/model/year specific front disc brake conversion kits that are designed specifically for our reader’s 1968 Chevelle.  Just like with other makes/models, we have three available options.

The Legend Series front disc brake conversion kit for the 68 Chevelle comes at a great price point and packs plenty of stopping power.  We offer both a manual disc brake kit (#DB1741M) for $689.00 and a power brake conversion kit for $789.00 (#DB1741P).  The Legend Series is a complete brake system that features OEM style cast-iron calipers and vented rotors. If you want to go ahead with a rear conversion as well, give our rear disc brake conversion kit (#DB1791BR) a look.

For Chevelle aficionados looking to finish off a new wheel package with some extra bling or more modern and offer more braking, consider our Rallye Series Conversion kit for 15” wheels.   The first of our two options is the 1968 Chevelle Manual Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit (p/n: DB2710M) which retails for $1129.00.  This system will convert original drum brakes to disc brakes using a high quality 4-piston billet aluminum caliper and mounting brackets along with the added benefits of slotted and drilled rotors.  This upgrade gives a distinct, modern performance look and feel that offers increased performance over the Legend Series but still allows use of your stock 15” wheels.  We also offer a 68 Chevelle Power Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit (p/n: DB2710P) which lists for $1279.00.

Chevelle owners looking for the ultimate in looks and performance should check out our Pro Driver Series for 17” and larger wheels. Our 1968 Chevelle Pro Driver Series Front Disc Brake Conversion Kit (#DB4741B) features larger 4-piston billet aluminum calipers along with 13” cross-drilled and slotted rotors, and best of all, the brackets and hubs are machined T-6061 billet aluminum for increased strength and durability under the most demanding driving conditions. And what would a killer front system be without a killer rear system to finish things off? If you want to go all of the way, check out our Pro Driver Rear Disc Brake Conversion Kit (#DB4730BR) as well for your Chevelle’s 10/12 bolt rear axle.

If you’ve been thinking about converting your Chevelle to front disc brakes, don’t settle for unreliable junkyard parts or an aftermarket system that isn't specifically made for your car.  Remember, upgrading to a new, model specific front disc brake system is one of the first modifications you should consider.  It’s easy, affordable, and it will enhance your safety and the value of your Chevelle. Are you curious about upgrading but questioning if you can tackle the job?  No sweat!  Give us a call on our dime at 1-800-397-2076 and we’ll be glad to answer any questions you might have.
