CPP Disc brake, spindle kit

Anybody had experience with the CPP drum to disc conversion kit with 2" dropped spindles. Looking at this and wondering about quality, fit, ease of installation, etc. Any comments welcome!

Go to the search button up top of this page and type in "CPP brake kit". Our posts have been organized by Google to return only responses within this site. You will find one side effect of disc brakes is that they widen the front track (distance between the front wheels) an inch and an eighth. It moves your wheel and tire five eighths closer to the fender which could be an issue if you have wider than stock tires and wheels.

Go with CPP zero offset kit. You will not regret it. I have it on my 67 and it truly is a zero offset.

Talked with CCP and their kit is 1/8" offset which is effectively nothing. Looks like the most complete package on the market and fair pricing. Seems like they are either running a 10% discount or free shipping quite often.

Hi Bob:

I have the CPP drum to disk conversion kit on my 68. The only thing I had to adjust was the nose of the lower control arm. It stuck out about a 1/16 to 1/8"and rubbed on the steering arm. Had to clearance it with a die grinder.

You have to have your steering arms shaved about an 1/8" but they still rub a little. I took mine into work and had the maintenance guys put them in the bridgeport.

Other than that it went together fairly easy.
