Aftermarket brakes for a 1970 Mustang

Post  dfree383 on December 13th 2017, 11:54 am

Looking at putting some big disks at all 4 corners on my 1970 project.

Considering a complete Wilwood setup

Any body her done it before? Experiance? Recommendations? Other options?

4 piston? 6 piston? Power or manual?

How big and type of wheel is going to be the first and most important question.

You know Dave I went with the wilwood kit for the front of my 67 comet .Everything fit perfectly and you can use your drum brake spindles .I cant speak about the rear brake kit as I am still using drums on mine .I also had a couple of OEM style master cylinders on my car .Well when ever I decided to go with a wilwood master cylinder I wished I had one from the start .It made such a difference much better braking but .You have to buy there kit for a pushrod the master cylinder I bought only has a threaded rod .And I had to drill the mounting holes to 3/8" I already had a wildwood proportioning valve and I put a residual pressure valve for the rear drums in .I have some good brakes for my 3400 lb drag car .I believe it is cheaper to buy your brake lines from earls rather than wilwood .Mine has the four piston calipers and vented rotors .
