The vehicles made from the late 50's to early 70's are some of the best looking cars in American history. Some of our favorites of this era come from the Ford Motor Company. It must not be just us that thinks this since the kits we offer for this application are some of our best sellers. Therefore, we thought we would take a look at the Legend Series Disc Brake Conversion Kits that we offer for the 1957 -1972 Full-Size Fords.

Bench bleeding your master cylinder is not necessarily all that complicated, but if we can make it even easier for you…we will. What is bench bleeding a master cylinder you might ask and why should I do it? It’s a process done before starting the process of bleeding the brakes on the rest of the vehicle. Typically done on the work bench (hence the name), this will remove the air from the master cylinder which then speeds up and makes bleeding the rest of the system much easier.
We recently received a note from the owner of a 65 Mustang asking us to justify the cost and expense of converting his car from drum to disc brakes. We field this question on a regular basis, so we thought it made sense to share our thoughts with our readers.
