  • Street Strip Rear Brakes

    Well believe it or not I'm back on the 69 Fairlane and I have to do some work to the rear end so I'm thinking about rear brake setup I could go the simple route and just go to a high-end break and be done with it but I'm curious about what you guys are using for let's say a mid-to-low 10 second car with a 9 inch big bearing setup. I have granada disc conversion on the front.
    Thanks Dennis

    I run the Wilwood DynaLite 4 piston brakes front and back. Manual brakes and stops on a dime. 35 - 40 lbs lighter than stock type disc set-up per axle as well.

      Picked up a tenth and a half switching out the heavy four piston front and single piston factory style brakes. Only swapping out brake kits and switching to a Strange plastic/aluminum master cylinder.

          Cannot remember where I bought them but we put bigger brake cylinders and bigger shoes on the Cougar. Works great! ( its 4 wheel drum)

            Dennis,

            Maybe others know, but I don't know - so I have to ask - what is your desired application for the car?

            Is it strip only, some street, mostly street, daily driver, or what?????

            Are you worried about every ounce of weight or not?
