Just joined w/67 Caprice

Have a 4 door HT and thinking about modding' her up, I'm sure I'll be posting my fair share of newbie questions.

Welcome to the Team HM!

Your 1967 will be require an ultra rare 1968 Corvette style four puck disc brake conversion (rare implies very expensive); or an aftermarket replacement that uses a custon cast iron steering knuckles (not cheap but cheaper than the factory parts) to adapt 1969-'74 Chevelle disc brakes (as common as dirt).

Welcome. Look for 69-70 Impala front disc brakes and spindles. They are a bolt on.

Welcome to the site.

You can also hit MCB or CPP and get their $400 complete front kit. It is a bolt on solution. Not a stock appearance but works great.

thanks all, spotted a few disc brake options on eBay that I was curious about:


Basic kit:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT


More complete w/Master Cylinder & Booster
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT


Two that include a drop kit, worthwhile? Does it help handling or will it just create more issues?
