Disc brake conversion

Anybody have a recommendation for a kit they have used. I have a 66 coupe and just cant get the stopping power I would like to have with the car on all four drums to feel comfortable driving it more. I know where I can get some kits, but just thought Id see if any of you guys swear by one or another. Cheers!

I went with csrp brakes. I ordered their entire steering and 4 piston disc brake conversion kit to go along with my 302 swap. Works like a dream. Comes with everything you need. Spindles, bearings etc. they make several kits

I got a kit made by SSBC for my 6 cylinder. Bought it on sale from CJ Pony Parts. Very economical. They have many levels of performance though.

I got the CSRP kit right from them. The 4 piston power conversion set up brings my car to a stop just as well as a modern car. I think it was in the $750 neighborhood for the whole kit

Well I made up my mind.....kind of . I am going with a csrp kit. I called him and he told me that if I had 15 inch rims I could go with the disk kit they had on the 99-04 mustang. So since Im having issues withmy rims anyway I thought I might replace them too. My question is do you guys know if this brake kit will fit with a 15 x 7 American racing VN420 classic 200s

American Racing - Wheels

I just dont know. I like these rims but somebody mentioned that just because they are a 15 inch rim on the outside doesnt mean they will be large enough on the inside if they step down like they do. So thought I would throw it out there and see if anyone could offer any insight. The only reason I am thinking of doing the more modern brake is because I am going to build a 351w engine in the future and plan on putting it in this car, so wanted to be semi ready for that. Cheers all!

Ask csrp about what back spacing is required for a 15 rim and the max rim width? That will let you pick out rims from wherever.
