not too pleased with this kit. only have had it installed for a couple of months and have had a massive brake fluid leak from right side caliper piston. replaced the caliper with one from autozone. then today the brake line extension piece sprung a leak (from the tubing itself, not from fittings). expected better quality, this could endanger people's lives.

Overall, the kit is excellent. All parts that are needed for normal install were there and easy to install with thier directions. I believe that they need to make people with mods done to cars, more aware of some potential problems, like in my case with a cam that will not create the vacuum needed. They do sell vacuum pumps, but don't tell you ahead of time. Almost like they are afraid to tell, in thinking that customers might change mind if they add up cost ahead of time.

the old drum to the new front disc brake conversion kit was a fairly easy installation on my 1970 maverick. About as easy as doing a regular brake job. now I have the safety of disc brakes

The kit went on very easily and fit perfectly. Had both of the fronts on in about 2 hours. The only suggestion I would have is that they should include new cotter pins as both of mine were mangled taking them out so had to run to the parts store to get new ones. Have only driven about 50 miles on them so far but they definitely perform 200% better than the old drums.

The kit was very complete with minimal extra parts. A more complete set of installation instructions could have been included. The e-brake hardware and cable needed to be modified, but everything else bolted right in. Without a lift and working alone, it took most of the day to complete the installation. The braking is much better as the original rear drums had constant malfunctions. I would recommend the replacement with this kit to anyone with drum brake issues.

WOW! More work than I expected. I ended up buying all new brake lines in the rear, which was a must. Also, the hard lines that were sent to marry the new Master Brake cylinder to the old brake distribution block did not fit and the fittings were not the correct ones either. I went to a local truck shop to have them shopped bent and spliced into a usable set. The instructions are good but could definitely use some more pictures with arrows and descriptions. For as expensive as this set is I expected it to be a lot more plug and play. I would not buy it again if I had it to do over. I have honestly not noticed any improvment from my drum brakes.
