One of the most common calipers used in the aftermarket today in many companies disc brake conversion kits are the exact same General Motors based calipers we use in ours. It is a very good caliper that will work for many different applications.
When it comes to brakes, you need think of a complete system consisting of components working together to stop your vehicle. As brake systems evolved from 4 wheel drum systems to rear drum/front disc combinations, the design of the various components making up the system changed in order to keep pace with the new technology. One of the best examples of this is illustrated by the changes in master cylinder design.
To kick off the launch of our newest disc brake conversion kits, the guys in the shop have been busy doing a special install on a gorgeous 1962 Impala. To provide the braking performance and style the owner desired, we installed our front Rallye Series along with our Pro Driver system for the rear brakes. All of this fit nicely within our customer’s existing 15” American Racing wheels. Curious why we chose a Pro Driver on the rear and the Rallye Series on the front?
