Convert Old-School Drum Brakes With a Disc Brake Conversion Kit
Ask any professional automotive tuner or hot rodder about upgrading the stopping power of drum brakes, and they'll tell you to ditch the drums completely and make an upgrade to disc brakes. This kind of swap is performed often in the automotive world, especially on collector cars that have some power behind the wheel. In fact, it's so commonly done that major component manufacturers have been producing brake conversion kits for years - kits that deliver smooth, even stopping power because all the bugs have been meticulously worked out. In this article, we'll cover such drum-to-disc brake conversion kits for popular vehicles from the 1950s through the 1980s, and we'll discuss the benefits you'll enjoy after making the switch.
